The Black Friday sales have started up early this year and it's looking like a great time to snag a new smartphone, with deals on several excellent handsets including the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8T. OnePlus isn’t quite as well known as some of the other major brands like Apple and Samsung, but it makes some seriously good smartphones and has been on the rise for a few years now.
Right now, you can get the OnePlus 8 directly from OnePlus for just $599 (opens in new tab). That’s $100 cheaper than the usual price for the 8GB RAM/128GB storage version and it comes with a free André Protective Case thrown in too. You can also get the 12GB RAM/256GB storage version for $100 less, down to $699 from $799.
If you prefer the top end model, then you can also save $100 on the OnePlus 8 Pro (opens in new tab) which is down to $799 from its usual price of $899. The freebie here is even better too, as you get a free pair of OnePlus Buds (opens in new tab) thrown into the deal.
There is also an interesting deal on the new OnePlus 8T if you want to pay for your smartphone monthly. You can get the OnePlus 8T for $32 per month for 24 months (opens in new tab), which comes to a total payment of $749.99 - that’s the MSRP for the OnePlus 8T, so no real saving there but you can spread out the payment without paying any extra, and you also get a free pair of OnePlus Buds thrown in too.

OnePlus 8T: Pay $32 per month for 24 months and get free OnePlus Buds (opens in new tab)
Pay monthly without paying extra, and get a free pair of earbuds thrown in for good measure. The OnePlus 8T is a revision of the original OnePlus 8, with an upgraded 120Hz screen, bigger battery, and even faster Warp charging.
OnePlus has been on the up-and-up for a few years now thanks to it’s excellent smartphone design and affordable prices when compared to the competition. In our OnePlus 8 review we noted that it has very similar specs to the Samsung Galaxy S20, but costs $300 less when they’re both being sold at MSRP - that price gap is very difficult to justify when you consider what the OnePlus 8 offers.
The newer OnePlus 8T is an excellent revision of the formula too, with an improved screen and ludicrously fast charging capabilities thanks to its dual-cell battery. The OnePlus 8T goes from 0 to 58% battery charge in just 15 minutes, and it only takes 39 minutes to fully charge the battery. That’s cartoonishly fast charging and its one of the reasons we have it in our best smartphones rankings.
All of these deals above are just for the handset itself, so if you’re looking for a new cell phone plan then check out our guide to the best cell phone providers too. We’ve even got a cell phone coverage maps article that will help you figure out which network has the best coverage in your area.
