This year’s Black Friday deals are now live, with savings available on everything from cell phones and TVs to air fryers and robot vacuums. I’ve already highlighted several eye-catching deals on three of the best cheap phones in 2023, but there are currently even bigger savings to be taken advantage of on two of the best phones, period: the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra and Pixel 8 Pro.

In the US, the Galaxy S23 Ultra is a whopping $300 off at Amazon right now (at $899.99, down from $1,199.99), while the Pixel 8 Pro is currently $200 off at the same retailer (at $789, down from $999). Both prices represent record lows.

In the UK, too, you can pick up the Galaxy S23 Ultra for a record-low £999 at Samsung itself (by applying code S23ULTRA250 at checkout), while the Pixel 8 Pro is down to just £949 (though again, you’ll only see the £50 saving at checkout). The latter price isn’t a record-low – we’ve seen the Pixel 8 Pro drop to £934 at Amazon once before – but £949 is only £15 shy of that price.

Winner of TechRadar's reader's choice awards for 2023, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is a fantastic pick if you're on the hunt for a flagship device with heaps of power, a gorgeous display, and class-leading cameras. It's currently on sale for a record-low price in both the US and UK (at Amazon and Samsung, respectively), though if you've got an existing Samsung device to trade in, Samsung's discount-plus-rebate offer may be the better option. In the UK, some third-party sellers are selling the S23 Ultra for an even better price at Amazon, but we're inclined to side with Samsung in the interest of security.

Google's best-ever Pixel phone has only just arrived, but it's already been discounted to a record-low price at Amazon in the US. There's a welcome $50 saving to be taken advantage of in the UK, too. Put simply, the Pixel 8 Pro is a fantastic phone, with great cameras and cool new AI features that you'll only find on a Pixel phone. What's more, Google has promised to support this phone for a whopping seven years, so this is a great deal that'll pay off long-term.
