Best Buy is no stranger to great Android phone deals, but they just quietly launched a limited-time Spring Sale that deserves some particular attention. There hasn't been a lot of pomp surrounding the Best Buy sale just yet, but I'm noticing some major price drops on AC favorites like the Samsung Galaxy S24 series, the Google Pixel 8 Pro, and many others. In other words, if you want to beat the crowds, keep reading: I've gathered a selection of my favorite offers below. 

In addition to good old-fashioned discounts, it's worth noting that many Best Buy deals also include free stuff like streaming services and additional savings when you activate a device or trade in. I'll make note of those goodies whenever they're available. How long will these Android phone deals last? It's hard to know for sure, but I wouldn't wait too long. It's also worth noting that Amazon appears to be matching Best Buy's prices at every turn, so if something is sold out, use our Price checker to see where you should go next.

    Best deal on this list is the OnePlus 12R by far. There isn't even a close #2. Especially if you purchase directly from OnePlus with a good trade in.

    In addition to the savings mentioned in this article, I also got an extra $180 off by trading in my old S21+. I ended up paying $349 (not including tax) for a legitimate flagship killer.

    Take a look at the 12R specs, it's insane that you can get a phone like this in 2024 at this price!

    How is the A54 5G a so-called "deal" at $400 ??? 🙃
    We purchased the same Violet 128GB A54 5G – last Fall (six months ago) for $330.
