Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 4 is the best phone/tablet hybrid you can buy, but price is its main sticking point. Most people simply aren’t willing to pay $1,800 or more, even if it can replace two devices.
However, Samsung’s Black Friday sale makes it much more appealing. The company is offering $450 off all three models in the US, meaning the new starting price is just $1,349.99. That brings it in line with many high-end flagship phones.
If you’d rather more storage, the 512GB model is down to $1,469.99 from its usual $1,919.99.
Then there’s the 1TB version, which now costs $1,709.99. For context, that’s $80 less than the RRP of the model with a quarter of the storage.
The same discount applies to all four colours of the Z Fold 4, although you’ll have to wait longer for some to be delivered.
You might also notice that trade-in offers are selected by default. Any Samsung Galaxy device will get you an extra $300 discount, but you can get up to $1,000 off if you trade in an eligible phone, tablet or watch.
However, these deals won’t be sticking around for long. If they do expire or sell out, Amazon’s $400 off is currently the next best price.
In the UK, there are only trade-in discounts if you go direct to Samsung. Instead, you can get an impressive £560 off the 512GB model, £520 off the 1TB variant or £200 off the 256GB version at Laptops Direct.
In our review of the Z Fold 4, we praised its display, rear cameras and battery life. The introduction of Android 12L makes the software experience much better (despite some missing app support,) so it’s a great choice unless you want to take lots of selfies or need fast charging.
Price was one of its big drawbacks, but these deals make the device a realistic option for lots more people.
