CNET says if you're feeling a little apprehensive about Samsung, the LG G6 is a solid way to go instead.

You'll save $186 with this deal, which includes an unlocked LG G6 32GB Dual-SIM 4G LTE GSM Android smartphone bundled with the LG Watch-Style Android smartwatch. Choose from several color combinations (Black/Titanium pictured).

Samsung Galaxy S8 / S8+ Deals

If you have no reservations about buying Samsung's latest handset, the good news is that there are deals for almost every major carrier right now when you shop at Best Buy. Buy a Samsung Galaxy S8 for AT&T from $25/month for 30 months, and get a 2nd Galaxy S8 free. Alternatively, opt to buy a Samsung Galaxy S8+ for AT&T from $28.34/month for 30 months, and get a 2nd Galaxy S8+ free. (Note, both of the AT&T offers are for DirecTV customers only, but not the offers from other carriers.) The Galaxy S8 and S8+ phones both feature a thin-bezel design, 64GB storage, and a camera with dual-pixel technology. It earns high praise from TechRadar for its large display, great camera, and powerful design. Check out the other deals here.

Switching to Verizon? Verizon Wireless charges the same and also offers a $50 Visa Gift Card via this online rebate and promo code "SWITCH50". Additionally, Sprint charges the same and advertises a free activation fee. (It's unclear if Best Buy charges the fee.) AT&T also charges the same for its phones, with online ordering available.

Upgrading to the newest iPhone often means shelling out a huge chunk of money upfront, or locking yourself in to another carrier contract for 24 to 30 months to pay it off.

This Editors' Choice pick is actually the cheapest unlocked iPhone 6 Plus 128GB we've seen.

Note: A 30-day warranty applies but it's unclear who backs it.

Store: B&H Photo Video
Price: $179.99

Lowest By: $120

The Blu Pure XR 64GB LTE Android smartphone is a solid option that's sort of middle-of-the-road. It's not the best device you'll find, but it's certainly not the worst. PCMag gives it decent marks for its affordability, design, crisp display, and features like a fingerprint scanner and expandable storage. You'll save $120 on this unlocked version in Gold. It has a 5.5" 1920x1080 (1080p) touchscreen display, front- and rear-facing cameras, fingerprint reader, and Android 6.0 (Marshmallow).
