From the best price we've seen for Samsung's new Note9 to an LG phone for less than $50, we've got a phone for every budget in this roundup of the week's best phone deals.
Samsung Galaxy Note9 Android Phone for Sprint
Lowest By: $625
Expiration: September 21
By opening a new line of service, you can get this Editors' Choice deal – the best price we've seen for the new Note9 yet, before factoring in the cost of the plan. CNET called it one of the year's best phones, noting the top tier specs and S Pen that functions as a selfie remote. Features include Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 8-core (2.8GHz quad + 1.7GHz quad) processor, 6.4" QHD 2960x1440 super AMOLED touchscreen with Gorilla Glass 5, 8GB RAM, 128GB storage, dual 12-megapixel rear cameras & 8-megapixel front camera, 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth 5.0, AKG stereo speakers, and Android 8.1.
Note: The price above is subject to credit approval. Additional fees may also apply. You'll receive a $25.84 bill credit for 18 months.
Apple iPhone 6 32GB Phone for Straight Talk
Lowest By: $220
Expiration: September 24
We're preparing for Apple Keynote week, where they'll likely announce the iPhone XI, complete with DNA-scan activation and eight brand new bespoke accessory ports. But if the latest and most expensive iPhones are outside your budget, you can jump back a couple of generations and save $220 on this prepaid iPhone 6.
Motorola Z2 Force Android Phone for AT&T
Lowest By: $145
Expiration: October 4
While sadly not a belated Devin Townsend Project tie-in, Motorola's Z2 Force phone was good enough for Engadget to call it the "most powerful modular phone out there". This is by far the best price you'll get if you want it on AT&T, saving you a cool $145. Features include a 5.5" 2960x1440 touchscreen AMOLED LCD, Qualcomm MSM8998 Snapdragon 835 8-core CPU (2.35GHz quad-core and 1.9GHz quad-core CPUs), 4GB RAM, 64GB internal storage, micro SD card slot, with support for up to 2TB, dual 12-megapixel rear-facing cameras and 8-megapixel front-facing camera, 4K video recording at 30fps, and Android 7.0 (Nougat).
Unlocked Blu R1 HD 16GB GSM Android Phone
Lowest By: $50
Expiration: September 20
Blu might not be the first brand that comes to mind when you think about a phone upgrade, but PCMag were very impressed with a slightly older model of the R1 HD as an extremely budget-friendly phone. For just $79.99, you're getting a 5.2" HD curved glass display with fingerprint scanner, Mediatek 6750 1.5GHz octa-core CPU with mali-t860 GPU, 16GB internal memory, 2GB RAM, micro SD card slot (up to 64GB), 13-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front camera, Android 7.0 (Nougat).
LG Tribute Dynasty Boost Prepaid Phone
Shipping: Free shipping
Lowest By: $40
But wait – we can go even cheaper. This prepaid LG Tribute Dynasty drops to less than $50 at Walmart. (You can get it direct from Boost Mobile for a buck more, but you'll ruin the "under $50" pitch.) You'd pay at least $40 more elsewhere, so this is very nearly half price. Features include a 5" 1280x720 HD IPS TFT display, MediaTek MT6750 1.5GHz octa-core CPU, 16GB internal storage, 2GB RAM, micro SD card slot (support for up to 32GB), 8-megapixel rear camera with 5-megapixel front camera, and Android 7.1 (Nougat).
