Television sets might have the biggest reputation on Black Friday in the past, but for 2014 there is expected to be a massive shift towards making smartphone deals especially appealing. These will apply to both Android and iPhone deals, making it appealing to almost anyone that is going to be looking for a new device this season. Android might have more options on sale, but that doesn’t mean that Apple phones are going to be in short supply when it comes to deals.

Android deals are different than iPhone ones. It might seem like discounts on Android devices are a dime a dozen, but in fact Black Friday in 2014 is going to be a truly exciting time for people who are looking for the latest device running the Google OS.
Be on the lookout for:
- Many Android phones are going to be available for free with a two-year contract, including ones that traditionally have been some of the most expensive.
- Devices from HTC, Motorola, or Samsung are going to be available for as much as 75% off of the retail price.
These Android deals are going to be big deals on Black Friday. Throughout the year there are plenty of retailers like Walmart and Amazon offering Android discounts, but this is going to be a day unlike any other when you start to consider the free phones alone.
With the release of the iPhone 6 this year, previous models are going to be heavily discounted in an attempt to clear out stock. Analysts are predicting that there are going to be a number of sales, like:
- iPhone 6 deals going as low as $250, which might not seem like a big discount, but for the latest model it is a big deal.
- iPhone 5s devices are going to be seen for as little as $1, which is something that we’ve seen in years past with previous models of the iPhone.

Stores like Best Buy are going to be the best place to get in on these deals, although many are expecting other retailers to offer as large as 50% off of previous iPhone models as well. Be on the lookout for ads confirming this in the coming weeks as we get closer to Thanksgiving. This is certainly going to be an exciting year for people who are interested in getting a new phone, but would rather not pay the $600 asking price for Apple devices especially.
