    • Many of the best smartphones you can buy in the US are expensive, but luckily, they often go on sale.
    • You can even find deals on brand-new phones with the latest tech, features, and design, as well as discounted last-gen models that can easily keep up in 2020.
    • These are the best smartphone deals we’ve seen in April 2020 so far, but we’ll update this list regularly with more great sales.
    • Right now, one of the best deals is $200 off the $1,000 Samsung Galaxy S20.

    Smartphone price tags are crazy these days, so finding a solid deal that scrapes a bit — or a lot — off the top can be helpful to anyone.

    Below, you’ll find some of our favorite smartphones that are currently getting a discount. We check back every week to make sure the list is up to date, and we use that opportunity to add any new smartphone deals we spot.

    In the US, the top smartphones you can buy are typically from Apple, Samsung, Google, and OnePlus. Thankfully, we’ve found deals for various models from those four smartphone makers, including those in the high-end premium, mid-range, and budget segments. 

    We also include deals for slightly older smartphones if we think they’re still worth it, and advice on whether the deal is good enough. 

    Here are the best smartphone deals in April 2020:

    The phones below are typically “flagships,” meaning they’re a company’s best smartphone that comes with the latest technology, innovations, and features. 

    Right now, you can get the $200 off the $999.99 Galaxy S20 and $1,199.99 Galaxy S20 Plus, phones that were released less than a month ago. The Galaxy S20 phones come with 5G connectivity, the best screens on any smartphone, gorgeous designs, excellent battery life, stellar performance.

    Just note that if you have a relatively recent smartphone and you’re looking to pick up the Galaxy S20, you might get an even better deal by trading in your smartphone directly with Samsung. For example, a Galaxy S10 in good condition can get you $600 off the Galaxy S20. 

    Best iPhone deals if you’re comfortable with going with pre-owned/refurbished

    If you can’t find a good sale or deal anywhere, the most consistent and best way to save on Apple’s iPhones is by going through one of Apple’s best-kept secrets — it’s own Refurbished Store.

    “Pre-owned” or “refurbished” can understandably send people the other way, but my personal experience with Apple’s Refurbished Store has made me a total convert. The device I bought was in perfect condition and there was nothing to suggest that it was pre-owned at all — it feels the same as buying new from Apple.
