Black Friday 2022: Active deals

There are a few relatively new flagship smartphones on the market that you’ll want to look out for during the Black Friday sales, as they may get their first or their best discount to date. These include the likes of the Google Pixel 7 Pro, the OnePlus 10 Pro, and the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4. But you’ll also want to keep an eye on the established favorites for unusually large price drops, such as this one on the Galaxy S22 Plus.

Excellent display • Great performance • Fantastic software support

The best sofware support on Android phone.

The Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus sits between the smaller Galaxy S22 and the more feature-packed S22 Ultra. It’s a premium device that outperforms its siblings in a few key areas. The performance is top-notch, the camera system is impressive, and the software support is the best you can get on an Android phone.

Headphones and earbuds

The likes of Samsung, Apple, and Bose have all launched new audio gear in recent months, so you’ll want to keep your eyes on the price of hot properties such as the AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) in case they feature in flash sales. But the introduction of new headphones and earbuds means we’ll also likely see new lows on the previous generations, which will usually still be excellent options in their own right. An example would be this new low price on the Sony WH-CH710N.

Good active noise cancelling • Comfortable padding • Strong Bluetooth connection with AAC and can also be wired

Good active noise cancelling on a budget.

For under $200 this is a great option for anyone that wants good active noise cancelling but doesn’t want to break the bank doing so. While it has plenty of flaws, it’s still a solid pair of headphones overall that I would recommend to anyone with a hard budget.

Tablets and e-readers

Unlike some of the other categories of tech we’ve covered in this rundown, there haven’t been many notable tablets released since the Prime Day sales. But Black Friday is still the best time to upgrade your slate. The Amazon tablets are on offer, and look out for bargains on flagship tablets, such as this Galaxy Tab S8 deal.

Chromebooks and laptops

The bigger the purchase, the more you stand to save in the Black Friday sales. But replacing your old laptop or Chromebook certainly need not break the bank. For instance, the Asus Chromebook Flip C433 is 40% off right now, so the already affordable Chromebook is down to its best price ever.

After the holidays, you’re going to need some motivation to get back in the gym or out in the winter air for some exercise, and the easiest way to motivate yourself is with metrics. That’s where a fitness tracker comes in, and you can justify your tech purchasing at the same time. Some of the Black Friday deals make it difficult not to, with a whole host of new wearables guaranteed to be at record-low prices this holiday season. The Google Pixel Watch is a prime example, sitting currently at a never-before-seen price.
