The day itself may be over a week away, but the Black Friday phone deals have officially landed. A bunch of these offers are already breaking records, such as this Amazon deal that drops the OnePlus Nord N30 5G down to $229.99, which is the cheapest that the phone has ever been.

If you're unfamiliar, OnePlus is a bit of an underdog in the smartphone landscape (in North America, at least), but they nevertheless produce some of the most innovative and thoughtfully-designed phones on the market. The mid-range OnePlus Nord N30 boasts an efficient Snapdragon chip, a reliable 5,000mAh with lightning-fast charging, and some useful software features courtesy of Oxygen OS. You even get a 3.5mm headphone jack. The Nord N30 is the best Android phone under $300 by a long shot, and this Black Friday deal makes it cheaper than ever.

An early Black Friday deal from Amazon is carving a sweet 23% off the OnePlus Nord N30, one of our favorite affordable Android phones. Not only is this the largest discount that the N30 has ever received, but you're getting a reliable device that performs way above its class.

The OnePlus Nord N30 deal is definitely the best phone you can grab under $300 today, but if you're able to spend a bit more, it's worth noting that the Google Pixel 7a is currently selling for just $374. 

That's another record-breaking discount from Amazon, plus you're getting a phone that's considerably better than the N30, with a Tensor G2 chipset and some flagship-quality camera tech.
