If you're looking for a deal on one of the more ubiquitous best smartphones, there are plenty around right now in the run-up to Black Friday; and if you want a phone that's a little different, to make you stand out from the crowd or just shake up your mobile experience, then there are some special deals just for you.

As part of its early Black Friday sales, Argos has cut the prices of loads of smartphones, including some of the more wacky and weird releases of the year.

These include the Nokia 9 PureView with its five rear cameras, the Samsung Galaxy A80 with its intriguing pop-up camera segment, and the Sony Xperia 10 with its peculiar aspect ratio.
