Are you getting a new phone during the Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals bonanza?
Verizon, T-Mobile, AT&T, Sprint, Best Buy, Amazon, Samsung, Apple, Google - most every big name in mobile has announced Black Friday deals and there are some pretty enticing offers even before the Thanksgiving turkey has gotten out of the oven.

Among the best promos are up to $300 off on Galaxy S9 or Note 9 directly from Samsung or up to 50% off Google's new Pixels. Apple, as usual, will announce its discounts at the last minute, but don't keep your hopes up for half-off iPhones or anything of the sorts. You can preview all the deals announced so far in our Black Friday roundup, too:

Manufacturer stores:

Carriers, retail and online stores:

With so many deals on so many expensive phones from retailers and carrier alike, we wanted to ask you if you will be angling for a new handset right after the turkey-induced tryptophan wears off this Black Friday. Mark your intentions in the poll below and tell us which one are you eyeing.

Just got my Note 9 a lilttle while ago. Done getting phones until next year Was considering getting an XS Max. Havent seen a deal i want yet. Then after setting up an XR at work yesterday and actually seeing how nothing has changed at all, im just gonna hold out. The Note is already more phone than enough to keep me busy. Apple preventing the Apple Watch from working with an iPad is completely stupid. This is why I prefer Samsung. The Gear apps works on any Samsung device and i can use my Gear with them. At least for setup and moving music to my Gear is a huge plus and Apple really needs to get with the program on this. Since i have an iPad, an iPhone is pointless to me. Wake up Apple and stop this BS.

Not gonna lie, I'm upgrading to a 3 XL from my 2 XL, reason behind this is the lack of ROMs for it. The 3 XL is just a refreshed phone with a notch and wireless charging. Gotta try the notch though to actually see how infuriating it is.

I'm waiting for the Note 10 unveiling so that I can buy the Note 9 for half its current price.

It’s a 6s I sold. Got a 7 plus. I don’t want to jump to the Xs yet so I’ll wait.
