The best Samsung deals include foldable phones like the Galaxy Z Flip 5. 

June Wan/ZDNET

I always say you should be a fan of the product, not the brand. But when a brand makes electronics for virtually all facets of life, it's hard to run against the grain. Korean electronics maker Samsung has been churning out quality tech for decades, including smartphones, wearables, TVs, and appliances that live in households worldwide.

If you're eyeing a new piece of electronic to complete your living room or kitchen, or just looking to upgrade your smartphone for less money than usual, you've come to the right place. Below you'll find the very best deals on all things Samsung, including savings on products ZDNET's tested, reviewed, and ultimately recommend. (You can also check out the best phone deals, and the best Apple deals.)

The best Samsung deals

Samsung's most capable smartphone is on sale right now for $200 off, making the Galaxy S23 Ultra just a bit more accessible. For the price, you're getting a large 6.8-inch AMOLED display -- arguably the best-looking panel on a phone, at that, 256GB of storage, a quad-camera setup for flexible capturing, and a built-in stylus.

Samsung's newly announced Galaxy Z Flip 5 phone is now available for preorder -- and right now, Amazon is offering a deal to upgrade to the 512 GB version for the same price as the 256 GB version, getting you tons of extra storage for $120 off. This deal also gets you a $150 Amazon gift card as well. 

Similar to the Galaxy Z Flip 5 deal above, for a limited time, Amazon is offering the 512 GB version of the new Galaxy Z Fold 5 foldable phone for the same price as the 256 GB version, saving you $180, when you preorder the phone (which will be released August 11). This deal also comes with a $200 Amazon gift card. 

A $50 discount doesn't sound like much, but for a $449 smartphone that's proven to hold its ground against premium flagships, it's a good chunk of savings. The Galaxy A54 5G is what ZDNET calls "The Samsung phone most people should buy" due to its well-rounded feature set and impressive battery life. 

A $70 discount on Samsung's best smartwatch doesn't make it an impulse buy, but if you've been eyeing a durable, reliable, and feature-packed timepiece, then this is as good as it gets. The Watch 5 Pro supports a slew of health and fitness features like sleep and GPS Route tracking and body composition analysis.

The Odyssey Ark is a gamer's paradise; a curved, high refresh rate panel that engulfs any user who sits (or stands) in front of it. As a result, you get what is arguably the most immersive viewing experience on any monitor. You'll have to make room to house one, and multitasking is at the core of its purpose, but for $500 off, this may be your calling to go big.

Arguably Samsung's most classy television, the latest model of The Frame TV is on sale right now at a $433 discount. Coming from Walmart, you'll save about $200 more than what Samsung itself is offering for the Frame TV, and it comes in a modest 55-inch display size that should play well with the whole artwork illusion.

It's crazy to think that you can now buy an 8K TV, let alone from Samsung, for less than $2,000 today. But that's exactly what this deal is about. At $1,000 off, Best Buy is currently listing the older (but still spectacular) QN800 model for $1,600. It's a 65-inch model, which should fit well in both living rooms and bedrooms, and supports 8K upscaling for lower-resolution content.

What is the best Samsung device?

Since Samsung has a product offering for virtually any consumer category you can think of, I'll list the best recommendations for the most popular devices, starting with phones. 

If you want the best Samsung phone, that would be the most recent Galaxy S23 Ultra. It's got a large 6.8-inch AMOLED display, a beefy 5,000mAh battery, a reliable set of quad-cameras, and even an S Pen stylus for precision inputs.

When it comes to TVs, Samsung's S95C OLED is king. It represents the best of the company's OLED technology, portraying inky blacks and bright and lively colors in between. The TV isn't cheap, and it's not an 8K panel or anything too futuristic, but if you want the best visuals available today, this is it.

In terms of wireless earbuds, the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro is your best option from Samsung. They fit snuggly in most ears, coming with a set of three cushioned ear tip sizes, and justify the Pro nomenclature with active noise cancellation (ANC), clear-sounding microphones, and fast pairing.

For tablet shoppers, the best Samsung tablet available is the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra. With a 14.6-inch display, it's a massive tablet, to be frank. But if you want the best mobile entertainment experience and/or a tablet that can replace a full-on laptop, then look no further. For something that's easier to manage, the Galaxy Tab S8 Plus is great, too.
