Over the last few years, mobile phones have become another hot item to consider on Black Friday. In years past, we’ve scoured each and every ad, compared specs, screen sizes, and battery life among the dozens and dozens of featured smart phones for the year’s busiest and best shopping day. This year, we've noticed a definite paradigm shift.
While there are still plenty of phone offers out there, we noticed four phones were prominently featured across ads from many major retailers. Rather than offering a wide variety of options, it appears that this year, stores around the country are fighting it out to give you the best price on the four hottest phones on the market. These also tend to be available from a number of different carriers instead of being exclusive to just one.
In this guide, we present the best deals available on this holiday season's four hot phones: Samsung's Galaxy S4 and SII, and Apple's new iPhone 5s and 5c. If you'd rather not sign a new two-year agreement, we also provide our picks for no contract phones, and even select a few great feature phones if you'd rather not jump into the higher monthly fees you'll encounter with smart phones.
Read on to see which phone deal works for you this Black Friday!
