Amazon’s Great Freedom Festival sale is going on at the moment, and there are deals and discounts in every category, from mobile phones to laptops to home appliances. But with smartphones, the deals can get confusing. While sales are a great time to upgrade, sometimes you may wonder if there really is a deal or discount on the actual price. Keep in mind that some of the prices Amazon reflects on the deals page include bank offers. And you must use these bank offers when you press buy and make payment. We take a look at the best 5G phones from top brands like OnePlus to Xiaomi to Samsung, and what deals you can get on Amazon.
