Best Black Friday 2021 Samsung phone deals
We're in the last hours of the 2021 Black Friday shopping event! If you have your eye on a Galaxy S21 Ultra but don't want to pay its full retail price, now may be your last chance to get it for less this year!

Samsung's newest foldables – the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3 – are also still reduced in price for Black Friday, so any Samsung phone you may have been wanting – you still have time to catch a discount for it! Let's take a look at the best Samsung Black Friday phone deals that are still available.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 Black Friday deals


The Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Z Fold 3 have kicked in the door with great Black Friday deals, and deals for those are still available today. Some carriers and retailers have pretty generous trade-in plans, while others – like Best Buy – offer straight-up and simple price cuts. Here are the top Samsung foldable phone Black Friday deals, chief among which is $400 off the Z Fold 3 when you count the instant rebate and the freebies, and the $300 off the Z Fold 3 on Amazon plus free Galaxy Buds 2 deal:

Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra Black Friday deals


Samsung launched its own Black Friday deals, through which you can still get the Galaxy S21 Ultra for up to $600 off with eligible trade-in. Best Buy directly takes $250 off the T-Mobile version of the S21 Ultra with activation.


This is a true monster of a flagship – huge display, massive camera module with 100x zoom, and support for the S Pen stylus. Indeed, the Galaxy S21 Ultra is part of the reason we didn't get a new Galaxy Note this year – between the S21 Ultra and the Z Fold 3, there isn't much room left for a Note that'll be different and enticing enough. Or, that's what Samsung probably figured.

Samsung Galaxy Note Black Friday deals


The Galaxy Note series have a dedicated fanbase for their big size and built-in S Pen support, making them perfect for productivity on the go. If you love the Galaxy Note, now is the perfect time to get one, or upgrade to a newer one! 

Samsung just discounted the Note 20 Ultra by a Benjamin for the last day of Black Friday, while if you get the AT&T model from Best Buy, it will be $300 off with activation. Here are the best Galaxy Note Black Friday deals still available:


Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 Black Friday deals


The Z Flip 3 hit the ground running with a super-aggressive price (for a foldable, that is) and a bunch of cool offers from the get-go. Even though it's the last day of Black Friday, you can still get $249 off the Z Flip 3 with an instant $100 rebate, and with gifts – Galaxy Buds 2 and a wireless charger:

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 Black Friday deals


While the Z Fold 3 improved on its already working formula – the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 was a very solid foldable when it came out in 2020, and it’s still an impressive phone today. However, unless you see a really great deal on it, we suggest looking at the Z Fold 3 instead.


Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus Black Friday deals


The Samsung Galaxy S21 series managed to hit a sweet spot with consumers and had triple the sales in the first month, compared to last year's Galaxy S20. The S21 series' fresh design clearly played a role in that, but the fact that Samsung managed to scale back on the exorbitant pricing might have had something to do with it, too. 

The Galaxy S21+ is meant for those that want a big-screen phone but don't necessarily care about the crazy camera of the S21 Ultra (and thus, save some money). It's a full-on metal-and-glass monster of a phone that somehow manages to look sleek and elegant.

The T-Mobile S21+ version is now $250 off at Best Buy with activation, while if you get it unlocked from Samsung you will be getting freebies.. In any case, here are the best Galaxy S21 Plus Black Friday deals:


Samsung Galaxy S21 Black Friday deals


The "entry level" Galaxy S21 is no joke. It's the smallest of the three and is aimed at people who would rather have an easily pocketable device than a camera powerhouse. Still, the Galaxy S21's camera is nothing to snark at and produces some great images. It goes without saying that the hardware on the inside is flagship-grade all around.


Samsung Galaxy S20 series Black Friday deals


The Samsung Galaxy S20 series are still fairly fresh off the shelf from 2020, and a spectacular choice of a premium 5G handset even in 2021. They can offer immense value to consumers who are looking for the next-best thing to, well, the Galaxy S21 series.

The S20 family first introduced high refresh rate 120hz panels and 5G technology into the Galaxy series, and it's here to stay. They are also the last series to retain the slightly curved-edge display, which Samsung did away with this year.


The Samsung S20 base model is the smallest of the three, and the cheapest (after the FE, that is) – but it's still no less than a powerhouse that should meet the needs of both hardcore and casual users. It's got the Qualcomm 865 processor (all three models do, in fact, but only in the U.S.), with a 4,000mAh battery to keep it powered up.

The S20+ may be the middle model here, but it's far from middling. With a 6.7-inch display, it packs nearly the same screen size and power as the S20 Ultra, but is much more wieldy – as it's rather a tall phone but very manageable in terms of width. If you crave more screen real estate along with still being able to maintain a solid single-handed grip around it, the S20+ may be the one for you.

The Galaxy S20 Ultra is the phablet of the bunch, featuring a massive 6.9" screen, and 100X Space Zoom—the two smaller models only zoom 30X. It's got a 108MP main camera, leaving the other models' 12 megapixels far behind in the dust. Its 5,000mAh battery is also the biggest of the bunch, as befits such a monster.

The "fan edition" model of the series is the most recent FE model from Samsung, and very similar to the S20 base model. It sells at the lowest price out of them all and has compromised on the S20's RAM, screen sharpness, and overall design to include a slightly larger screen, bigger battery, and 32MP selfie snapper. 

The S20 FE is meant to integrate the most sought-after features of the series, and it's your choice whether to love it or hate it – but it's by far the cheapest one. Even cheaper now that Black Friday is here!

Samsung Galaxy A series Black Friday deals


Samsung has absolutely proved that it can play the midrange game when it feels like it. The A72 and A52 were both really good upgrades over their previous generation counterparts and brought quality Samsung experience to the masses.


The Galaxy A52 is a slightly downgraded version of the international A72, but not too much. The processor and RAM are the same, it's just that the phone is slightly smaller – so, a smaller display and battery. The A52 lacks a telephoto camera for portrait shots and instead has a macro camera with arguable usefulness. However, it drops the price quite considerably. It goes without saying, the Galaxy A52 deals on Black Friday 2021 will make this phone even more of a steal.

The Galaxy A42 is mostly an A52 in sheep's clothing. Indeed, the only big thing that seems to be downgraded here is the screen – locked to 60 Hz refresh rate from the A52's 90 Hz. The Galaxy A42 also sports a slightly larger battery, but slower charge speed, and slightly different camera sensors. Still, its camera array consists of main wide camera, ultra-wide, and macro cameras.
