Black Friday might sound like the perfect time to storm your favorite retail stores for savings on HDTVs, tablets, refrigerators and everything in between, but what you might not know is that it’s also a good time to grab a phone at a discount.

Or maybe you want to try it out in person first. We’ve looked through the Black Friday sales of each of the major retailers in the United States to find you the best smartphone deals we can find.
