Best smartphone deals for June 2019: iPhone, Samsung Galaxy, and LG

There are many reasons why you might be in dire need of a new phone, whether the battery on your current one is starting to give up the ghost or is just starting to feel sluggish. With companies like Apple, LG, Google, Sony, and Samsung constantly rolling out new smartphones, there’s never a bad time to take advantage of slashed prices on quality smartphones that will blow your old model out of the water.

If your phone needs an update and you’re ready to score a discount on a new wireless device, here are a bundle of smartphone deals available right now. The list includes a handful of sales on unlocked smartphones, exclusive carrier offers, and BOGO deals, and can save you as much as $900. Getting a new phone doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg.

Unlocked smartphone deals

Carrier offers typically require you to sign up for a specific service or trade in an old device to get your discount. These smartphone deals, on the other hand, let you enjoy big savings on unlocked mobile phones when you buy them outright:

Apple iPhone 8 (Renewed)

Unlocked iPhone deals are scarce, so your best bet here is to go the refurbished route and buy a professionally recertified model from a trusted retailer. Amazon usually has a bunch on sale, and the pick of the litter is the 64GB iPhone 8. This phone is unlocked for GSM carriers (such as AT&T and T-Mobile) and rings in at $380 right now, giving you a 31% discount of $170.

Samsung Galaxy S10e

The Galaxy flagships are getting as expensive as the high-end iPhone models now, but Samsung has thrown a bone to people who want something a bit cheaper (and smaller). The Samsung Galaxy S10e is a more pocket- and wallet-friendly alternative to the standard S10, and it’s on sale right now from B&H for $200 off with checkout coupon redeemable on the product page. This lets you score this great little unlocked smartphone for just $550 right now.

LG V35 ThinQ

LG is another Android phone maker that is cranking out some of the highest-rated flagship devices that money can buy, and its 6-inch V35 ThinQ is no exception with its excellent display, hardware, wide-angle camera, and build quality. One of our few criticisms of the phone was its price, but you can grab a carrier-unlocked LG ThinQ V35 from Amazon for $352 right now, a far cry from its steep launch price of $900.

Google Pixel 3

Given that this is the company behind the Android operating system, it’s no surprise that Google’s Pixel 3 offers what might be the best out-of-the-box Android experience on the market. Its flagship smartphones are affordable compared to the competition, too (given that Apple and Samsung are now releasing flagships in the $1,000-plus range), and this deal lets you score them for even cheaper: The 5.5-inch Pixel 3 is on sale for $660, while the plus-sized 6.3-inch Pixel 3 XL is available for $720 from B&H. If that’s more than you’re looking to spend, you can also consider grabbing the more budget-friendly Pixel 3a for $399.

Sony Xperia XZ3

Sony doesn’t get as much press as other Android brands, but this Japanese tech giant makes some pretty solid phones like the Xperia XZ3. Our review team hailed the XZ3 as Sony’s best smartphone to date, thanks in large part to its gorgeous 6-inch OLED touchscreen and sleek modern design. At $599 right now after a $200 discount, the Sony Xperia XZ3 is a flagship that punches well above its weight when it comes to price, too.

Carrier smartphone deals

Cellular service providers regularly offer enticing incentives to get you to switch to their LTE plans. So if you’re looking for a new carrier, you can save a good chunk of change and even score a free device by taking advantage of one of these smartphone deals from Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon, or AT&T:

  • T-Mobile: If you’re looking to switch carriers, T-Mobile has some attractive offers. New customers who join T-Mobile can take advantage of discounts, trade-in deals, and BOGO offers on the iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and XS Max, Samsung Galaxy S10 (including the S10e and S10 Plus), and LG G8 ThinQ, getting up to $900 back in bill credits.
  • Verizon: Verizon has a bundle of various deals on Apple and Android devices including the iPhone X, iPhone XR, iPhone XS and XS Max, Samsung Galaxy S10 (all models), Galaxy Note 9, Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL, LG V40 ThinQ, and LG V8 ThinQ. You can get up to $750 back in bill credits when you buy two of the Galaxy devices, or you can save between $300 and $450 on any of these phones (some discounts require a trade in, some do not).
  • AT&T: AT&T is offering some BOGO deals on Apple and Android flagships, giving you back between $750 and $830 toward an iPhone XR, Samsung Galaxy S10e, or LG G8 ThinQ when you buy two on AT&T Next. New customers who sign up for AT&T and aren’t looking to buy two phones can also enjoy discounts on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8.
  • Sprint: For Apple fans, Sprint is offering standalone discounts on the iPhone 8 and iPhone XR, but if you want a BOGO deal, you can get $900 in bill credits back toward an iPhone XR when you buy it along with an iPhone X, XS, XS Max, or XR on a rent-to-own Sprint Flex Lease. Android offers include discounts on a wide variety of Google, Samsung, and LG flagships, offering some options for people who don’t want to buy two phones to get a deal.
