The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 are the only foldables anyone should consider buying right now and among the best smartphones of 2021. The biggest criticism of either one is the cost and Samsung is slashing the price on both for Black Friday and even tossing in a pair of its excellent Galaxy Buds 2 headphones that earned a 4.5 out of 5 stars and editor's choice award from us.
Currently, you can pick up the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 for $899.99 at Samsung, that's $100 off its already solid retail price. If you want the full phone to tablet foldable experience then the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is $1,549 at Samsung, $250 off its retail price. If you are also in the market for a pair of wireless headphones then the free Galaxy Buds 2 ($149) sweeten the deal considerably.
This is the best Black Friday phone deal we've seen on Samsung's foldables without and the best savings by far on a top-tier flagship.
