Amazon Prime Day is among the best shopping events of the year for buying a new phone. You can score discounts so deep that a flagship phone drops to mid-range price levels and a mid-range phone becomes a budget phone. Therefore, the budget you've set aside will get you a better phone than what you could normally afford outside of Prime Day.
What we're finding in Prime Day 2021 is that Samsung Galaxy phones are among the best deals around. And not just compared to other phones — some of the Galaxy phone sales on Amazon are among the best tech deals on the market, period.
We've already aggregated the best Prime Day phone deals so you can see the steepest discounts on every iOS and Android device we consider worthwhile. For this page, we're simplifying things by listing only the best Samsung phones.
Keep in mind that these products can go out of stock at any point as they are very popular. In fact, some color variants for select phones that were on sale at the start of Prime Day are no longer available.
