Samsung, Apple smartphones

If you decide to purchase an iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, Samsung Galaxy S7 or Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge through Target and sign up with Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint, you will receive a $250 gift card. In addition, purchasing one of the Samsung devices mentioned will net you a free Gear VR headset.

HTC 10

If you buy the HTC 10 directly from the vendor, you will knock $200 off the retail price of $699. You can purchase the smartphone unlocked and in a variety of colors. HTC prides itself on mobile photography capabilities, and so if that is of interest to you, this Android-based device could be a steal in Black Friday 2016.

Honor 8

The Honor 8, a decent mid-range smartphone which is heavily focused on photography, will be discounted by £70 and available for £299.90 on Black Friday.

The smartphone features a 5.2-inch FHD touchscreen display, an 8-core CPU up to 2.3GHz, 4GB LPDDR4 RAM and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera.

However, the smartphone's real lure is for photographers through the device's dual 12MP lenses, separate color and monochrome sensors and hybrid autofocus for taking decent quality photos on a budget.

Carphone Warehouse smartphone deals

This Black Friday, Carphone Warehouse is offering hundreds of pounds off flagship smartphones such as the Samsung Galaxy S7, the iPhone 6S and the new Google Pixel to UK customers.
