LG V30+ for $430 at Amazon

Josh Miller/CNET

The $430 price is a deal on an unlocked version of 2017's best LG phone. This is a big-screen device with strong camera performance and the ability to take wide-angle selfies, and the "V30+" model in this deal has 128GB of built-in storage. For a little perspective, the LG V40 retails for around $950 (the exact V40 price varies by carrier).

This deal is available now at Amazon.

LG G7 ThinQ (Sprint): Save $432 on service at Best Buy

Josh Miller/CNET

This offer on the high-end LG G7 is a little more difficult to puzzle out. When you buy the phone at Best Buy and activate it for Sprint's service, you'll receive a bill credit over 50 percent. Instead of paying $33 per month for two years, you'll pay only $15. That's $18 back for each month of a 24-month installment plan. More details here.

Sale dates

Nov. 22 at 5 p.m., through Nov. 24.

Our favorite budget phone of 2018 was already a knockout value for $250, but this $200 price is a steal. The unlocked Android handset has dual rear cameras for portrait photos and some nice extra software touches.

Motorola Moto X4: Save $120 at Best Buy

Josh Miller/CNET

The charming Moto X4 is one of our favorite midrange handsets of the year. Strangely, you can already buy the Moto X4 unlocked for even less ($230) straight from Motorola's site.

Huawei Honor View 10

Andrew Hoyle/CNET

With some solid core specs, the View 10 is a great way of snagging a powerhouse midrange phone for hundreds less than a premium phone.

LG Rebel 4 LTE: Save $50 at Target


Storage is scarce on this 16GB entry-level handset, but cheap phones make solid second devices, and you won't have to worry about breaking or losing it the way you would a more expensive phone. TracFone provides the wireless service.

Sale starts

Target says Nov. 22 (Thanksgiving Day), but its website already advertises the $50 price.

LG Phoenix 3: Save $15 with Best Buy

$25 for a prepaid smartphone with AT&T's LTE service sounds unheard of in this day and age. Be aware that the prepaid phone has a slim 16 GB of internal storage and a 5-inch screen.

Blu Grand M2 3G: Save $20 at Best Buy


With only 8GB of onboard storage, I hesitate to recommend this entry-level phone, but if storage is lower on your priority list than a cheap, unlocked phone, the Blu Grand M2 is a no-frills option that easily costs less than $100.

Sale dates

Nov. 22 at 5 p.m. through Nov. 24.
