A new phone is one of the most important purchases you’ll make. You probably use it more times each day than any other device, so you’ll want to pick one that’s just right. It’s easy to spend hours scouring the web looking for the best offers, but we’ve done the legwork for you. We’ve gone ahead and gathered some of the best phone deals available to save you time and money.
We’re mainly sticking with unlocked deals for now but we’ve thrown in some of the best carrier offers too. We’ve made note of the international devices as well, but make sure to check carefully before you buy.
Featured deal: Save up to 37% on the TCL 10 series
Previously just a parent company to other large mobile brands such as Alcatel and Palm, TCL launched its own line of smartphones last year, with the TCL 10 Pro being the jewel in the crown. The recent release of the TCL 20 series means that we’re now seeing a great offer on the TCL 10 Pro and 10L.
Right now you can save $150 on the TCL 10 Pro via an on-page Amazon coupon, bringing the price of the phone down to just $299.99. That’s almost the lowest price we’ve ever tracked it to date, and superb value for the hardware you get.
Built from metal and curved glass, the 10 Pro sports a premium build quality akin to flagship devices with double the retail price. The phone comes with a 6.47-inch, Full HD+ AMOLED display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 chip, and 6GB of RAM. The 4,500mAh battery easily makes it through a full day of use, while the four rear cameras on the back of the TCL 10 Pro delivers a wide range of photography capability.
The 10 Pro isn’t the only smartphone on offer from TCL right now. The TCL 10L is a more budget-friendly alternative to the 10 Pro, and in our review of these phones, we said that the 10L was a quality smartphone for its lower price point. The 10L has a 6.53-inch, LCD full HD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor, 6GB of RAM, and a 4,000mAH battery. Right now, the 10L is only $156.99 ($93 off), which is a record low as far as we’re aware.
