Best phone deals still available: Save on Samsung Galaxy S20, iPhone 11, OnePlus 8 Pro and more

This story is part of Gift Guide, our year-round collection of the best gift ideas.

Black Friday and Cyber Monday may be in the rear-view mirror, but there are still plenty of deals to be had on smartphones from Apple, Samsung, Nokia, Motorola and others, on both the individual phone makers’ websites as well as online retailers such as Amazon and Best Buy. In many cases, these phone deals are a return to the sale prices we saw last month — and in some cases, the savings are even better.

If you’re looking to snag a new iPhone, check the Apple Store for the latest discounts. Apple has now permanently cut prices on older models, including the iPhone XR and iPhone 11. 

Get your next phone for the best price.

Set price alerts on your favorite models with the CNET Shopping extension and get notified when prices drop.

Note that prices and availability were accurate at the time of publication, but are subject to change. Make sure to check back often for the latest deal prices, as we’re updating this article on a rolling basis to account for newer, better deals and expired offers.

Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G: $890

Save $510

The Galaxy S20 Ultra is Samsung’s most advanced (and expensive) flagship phone, released earlier this year. Its greatest feature may be its camera, with a 108-megapixel sensor, 100x zoom lens and 40-megapixel selfie camera. The phone also has a huge 5,000-mAh battery for extended battery life.

iPhone 11: $599

Save $100 vs. the 2019 price

Apple cut $100 off the price of last year’s iPhone 11, which CNET has called “the best $700 iPhone Apple has ever made.” With the iPhone 12 already on sale, you can now pick up an iPhone 11 for as low as $599. It has fast speeds, improved battery life and excellent cameras, including a Night Mode feature.

iPhone XR: $499

Save $100 vs. the 2019 price

The 2018 iPhone XR includes most of the same features as the more expensive iPhone X and XS, including an excellent big screen in a comfortable body, fast performance, Face ID and wireless charging, and a great camera. This is $100 off, making it a great, less expensive iPhone option that still gets you a lot of great features.

OnePlus 8 Pro 5G: $799

Save $200

With 5G support, IP certification for water resistance, a total of four cameras — one at 48 megapixels — and a large 120Hz display, the OnePlus 8 Pro earned high marks from our reviewers, with the only big downside being its high price. But now you can buy the phone at Amazon for $799, saving almost $200. Also keep in mind it is only available to ship after Dec. 19.

Galaxy S20: $800

Save $200

Of Samsung’s Galaxy S20 5G phones, the S20 is the smallest and cheapest — and our reviewer’s favorite. It’s just as stuffed with top-shelf features as the Galaxy S20 Plus and S20 Ultra, from its tack-sharp screen to advanced camera capabilities. Apart from screen and body size, there aren’t many big differences between the three phones. You can get the 128GB phone in cloud blue or cosmic gray at Amazon.

Motorola One Zoom: $250

Save $200

The Motorola One Zoom is a midpriced phone with great value and a smooth matte finish, so you won’t get fingerprints all over the back. It also has four high-quality cameras on the back (and the one on the front) and a large battery for up to two days of charge.

Pixel 3A XL: $339

Save $140

The Pixel 3A XL includes a large screen, a fantastic camera, a long-lasting battery and a headphone jack — all at a more affordable price than the Pixel 3 and 3 XL. It doesn’t have as many features as the later Pixel models, but for $369 now, it’s a great option.

Moto G Power and Moto G Fast: $180 (Update: Expired)

Save $70

Two more Motorola phones have gotten nice price drops at Best Buy. 

The 2020 Moto G Power features a wallet-friendly price, a gigantic 5,000-mAh battery and 64GB of storage, along with a 6.4-inch display and triple-rear camera array. Motorola promises that the phone will last up to three days of regular use on a single charge, and in our testing, it’s held up so far. It’s on sale for $180 at Amazon for the holidays.

The Moto G Fast has many of the same features as the Moto G Power, including the 6.4-inch display and triple-rear camera array. However, it does have a smaller battery, less RAM and half of the storage, as well as lower screen resolution. It’s on sale for $145 at Amazon.

Save $150

The Galaxy Note 20, released in August, has several of the same premium features as the pricier Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, including strong battery life.

Save $120

The Moto G7 Power is a 2019 member of the Motorola G budget phone family, offering a wallet-friendly price, several premium features and a gigantic battery (the same size as the one found in Samsung’s Galaxy S20 Ultra).
