The Black Friday sales season is here! The best deals are often not on Amazon. The prices shown below are the best available now, though you may need to buy quickly as some deals will sell out.
There’s a lot to like about Google’s latest flagship phone the Pixel 5 – Google’s first 5G phone, along with the Pixel 4a 5G. The Pixel 5 arrives with Android 11 and features a 6in 90Hz display, powered by a 4080mAh battery and Snapdragon 756G chip, and a dual rear camera that pairs the standard lens with an ultrawide. Unlike past flagship Pixel phones, there isn’t a second larger 5 XL option.
If you’re looking to get your hands on a new Google Pixel 5 this Black Friday, which falls on 27 November this year, you’ve come to the right place. We’re rounding up the best Google Pixel 5 deals both on contract and SIM-free.
(Psst! We’re separately looking at the best Black Friday offers across all sorts of tech too).
How much does the Pixel 5 cost?
The Pixel 5 comes with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage and costs £599/€629/$699. It’s available in two colours: Just Black and Sorta Sage.
Read our full Pixel 5 review to see why our Consumer Tech Editor Alex Walker-Todd calls it “…perhaps the most balanced Android phone to date, not to mention a great choice for those after a capable small phone, 5G phone or camera phone.”
That price makes it less expensive than the standard Pixel 4, which costs £669. See the best Pixel 4 and 4XL deals here.
There is no XL version of the Pixel 5, but the cheaper Pixel 4a 5G is larger – but with lower-specs – if that’s what you’re looking for.
