Black Friday is nearly here and with it comes discounts on everything from TVs to game systems, laptops to smart speakers, and so much more. Now is also a great time to buy a smartphone. ZTE is already known for exceptional price-to-value ratios but this Black Friday it’s taking things up a notch.

ZTE’s Black Friday promotion doesn’t officially begin until November 27th at midnight (EST), but we’re bringing you a look at the great deals to come right now!

The ZTE Axon 10 Pro starts at just $449.98 this holiday season

The Axon 10 Pro was already a steal at $550, but ZTE’s Black Friday sale will bring it down to an impressive $449.98, while also throwing in a free case.

The Axon 10 Pro offers all the specs and performance of a flagship phone but at a much more aggressive price tag. Under the hood there’s the latest Snapdragon 855, up to 12GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, a 6.5-inch AMOLED display, a whopping 4100mAh battery with Quick Charge 4+ support, and a triple camera setup – wide, ultrawide, and telephoto. There are even features you won’t find in flagships like the Pixel 4, such as an in-display fingerprint scanner, microSD support, and even the ability to use a second SIM card if you so choose.

Axon 10 Pro gives you all the power of a flagship for under $500 -- what's not to like?

The Axon 10 Pro isn’t just powerful, it also offers clean near-stock Android Pie, with an update to Android 10 coming soon. Unlike rivals such as Samsung, ZTE doesn’t add a bunch unnecessary extras to its software, though the few additions it does add are all about improving AI and making the phone expeirence as smooth as possible.

Thankfully the phone is just as impressive on the outside. The elegantly curved glass and nearly full-screen display make for a stunning handset.

The Axon 10 Pro is an incredible deal but if you’re looking for something even more affordable, look no further than the Blade 10. This phone would make the perfect gift for someone looking to replace an aging phone, or as for a teen looking for their first phone.

The Blade 10 features plenty of power under the hood with an octa-core Mediatek processor with 3GB of RAM, a 6.3-inch FHD+ display, 64GB of storage with microSD, and 3,200 mAh battery. You also get a fingerprint sensor and a headphone jack, features that are becoming less common in devices like the Pixel family.

For photography buffs, there’s a dual camera on the rear, combining a 16MP and 5MP lens. But the real stand-out is on the front. Selfie lovers will get a 32MP shooter, which is a considerably higher megapixel count than most smartphones pack on the front.

The Blade 10 will go on sale for just $129, a savings of $50. A smartphone of this caliber for such a low price is hard to pass up, heck even buying it as a backup phone might not be a bad idea!
