As much as everyone loves the new generation of cutting-edge smartphones, for many tech fans breaking the $1,000 barrier is simply a no-go.
Regardless of the super vivid edge-to-edge screens, insanely-powerful processors and near-pro cameras, parting with close to a grand can be a bridge too far.
Thankfully, there’s Black Friday weekend to make the pricing more palatable for some of 2017’s flagship smartphones.

The reassuringly expensive Samsung Galaxy Note 8, for example, is $170 off at B&H Photo in the United States right now.
The site is offering the phone for $779.99 with free expedited shipping and no sales tax charged if you live outside of NY and NJ.
It’s the unlocked edition of the handset so it’ll work on all North American carriers, regardless of whether they’re GSM (AT&T and T-Mobile) or CDMA (Verizon and Sprint).
One of 2017’s best
The Galaxy Note 8 is one of TrustedReviews’ favourite handsets of 2017. We gave the phone a 9/10 score in our review just last month.
We praised the “absolute beast of a phone” for its stunning design and build, great screen, well implemented S Pen stylus and superb cameras.
If you’re looking to spend a little less and get similar savings, BH Photo is also offering $150 off both the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ smartphones. Both are unlocked.
That’s big time savings on all three of Samsung’s 2017 flagships, without the need to commit to a carrier. Can’t say fairer than that.
