Prime Day 2021 may start tomorrow, but some huge Prime Day deals are already here! Prime Day 2021 technically runs on June 21 and June 22, but the sales extravaganza always starts early, with some deals arriving days before the official Prime Day dates.
We’re already seeing plenty of great Prime Day smartphone sales, so now is this the ideal time to buy if you’re looking to upgrade your existing smartphone. Whether you’re looking for a budget handset or something far more premium, we’ve got everything you need to know about Prime Day smartphone deals that are already live and those that might be coming.
You don’t need to wait for Prime Day to officially start. Some deals have already begun, and it’s likely some of these deals will rival those we’ll see on Prime Day itself.
Technology is one of the strongest categories in the Prime Day sales and we’re expecting to see great Prime Day smartphone deals on all the biggest smartphone names. That means brands such as the Apple iPhone and Samsung Galaxy range are likely to be discounted, along with the likes of more inexpensive phones such as those from Motorola, Oppo, Nokia, LG, and much more.
Prime Day smartphone sales tend to encompass a wide range of budgets so whether you’re looking for something that only costs about $100 or investing in a $1,000 behemoth, there should be something on sale here for you.
Last year saw big price cuts on some huge brands. Those deals included substantial discounts on the Samsung Galaxy S20 and S10 range, Prime Day smartphone deals for OnePlus phones, and price drops for the Motorola Moto range.
Most impressively, there was up to $200 off the Samsung Galaxy S20 range with up to 47% off other Samsung Galaxy smartphones, too. iPhones saw similar discounts with older iPhones such as the iPhone XR and iPhone XS, seeing hundreds of dollars slashed off their prices as part of Prime Day’s smartphone deals.
Prime Day is generally a good sales event for buying any kind of technology with smartphones often discounted heavily during this time. If you’re looking for a new smartphone then Prime Day smartphone deals are a good place to go.
As always, know your budget and do your research beforehand. A good deal is only a good deal if you need and benefit from the item. Check out our look at the best smartphones if money is no object and you want the best out there. We’ve also looked at the best Android phones and the best cheap smartphones too.
You could wait it out until Black Friday, but odds are if you’re considering purchasing a phone now, you probably want to use it straight away rather than wait for months. Bear in mind though that new iPhones are typically announced in September so it might be worth your while waiting until Black Friday (if you can) if your heart is set on an Apple device and you want the best price possible.
