If you've read our smartphone predictions, then you know we were expecting some serious price lows on a variety of cell phones. But even we didn't see some of these awesome offers coming! Below, we've highlighted the best Apple and Android deals you can expect on Black Friday.

Apple iPhones

  • Apple iPhones for AT&T NEXT or Verizon Device Payment with a $250 Gift Card for $0 down at Walmart
    There are a few of these offers lined up at different retailers for Black Friday, as noted below. If you're going to take advantage of an iPhone deal, it's really just about where you prefer to shop.

  • Apple iPhone 5s 16GB No-Contract Smartphone for Straight Talk for $99 at Walmart
    Walmart has been consistently offering this model at $149 for a few months now. This Black Friday deal makes it the best price we've ever seen.

  • Apple iPhone 7 with a $250 Gift Card for $0 down at Target
    If you've been planning to upgrade to the newest iPhone, this gift card makes a nice perk. Plus, if you prefer shopping at Target, this deal is better suited for you than the similar one at Walmart.

  • Apple iPhone 7 Plus with a $250 Gift Card for $0 down at Target
    Just like the offer above, this is a great way to upgrade to the newest iPhone with a nice bonus perk attached. This offer will get you the larger iPhone 7 Plus, and all the exclusive features it comes with.

  • iPhone SE for Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint from $9.99 per month at Best Buy
    We saw a BOGO free offer from T-Mobile back in the summer, but that was the best sale we'd seen for this iPhone. It was released earlier this year, so this deal makes upgrading to a new iDevice much more affordable. It requires a 2-year agreement.

  • iPhone 7 with up to a $250 Gift Card at Best Buy
    Upgrade to a new iPhone 7 on an installment billing agreement and you could bag a gift card worth up to $250. It's not as promising as the offers from Walmart and Target (you could end up with a lesser gift card) but it's still a decent deal if you prefer Best Buy.

year for several years now and found it very useful, that is until this year. This year I specifically sought iPhone 7 Plus deals. I found your info on the iPhone 7 & 7 plus deal from target that states "In-store and online, Confirmed" and became extremely ecited. So, as I trust this site as an authority in sniffing out the details of the Black Friday deals and since i had to work today (Black Friday) I didn't make plans to drudge out with the masses last nigh or this morning. Instead, I decided to wait until my wife went to bed last night and order her new iPhone 7 plus and $250 gift card from target "ONLINE" only to become extremely frustrated/infuriated that this deal IS, in fact, AN IN-STORE ONLY deal!!! Seems as though I'll be missing out on this deal now. Thanks Deal News for getting this one wrong and royally screwing up my shopping plans.

Oh, and dido for the Walmart ad
wsutippa, why don't you just call Verizon and ask them?
Thanks very much for posting the deals.

Can somebody please help answer my question. I am planning to buy the iphone7. I am currently on AT&T, but I need to get the verizon version of the iphone7, because it has the better modem. So, can I buy the phone through this deal with Verizon, and immediately after the 1st month, cancel service through Verizon, and pay the full price for the device - then go back to AT&T. Do you guys know if Verizon charges any extra fee for this.
