  1. I’m always excited for Black Friday because the deals can be amazing.  I am in the market for an upgrade and I appreciate the information that you have provided. I’m having a hard time deciding between the Samsung A52 and the Oppo Reno 5.  The Samsung name is a trusted brand, but the Oppo phone has some intriguing features.

    • Hi Mike

      Its a pleasure. Like you said, Samsung is a known as the best smartphone brand worldwide. The Oppo smartphone brand is part of the top five best smartphone brands to choose from. Plus Oppo is more affordable with extra features as compare to Samsung.

      But, like I said before, it all comes down what your smartphone requirements are. If you want to ensure you make the right smartphone selection, please read the following post.

  2. I have been considering an upgrade over the past few weeks and you have covered a massive choice here! I have found this very useful getting all the info I need on the phones I am considering. Thank you for putting all of this info into one place saving anyone having to waste time looking around! 

    • Hi Ben Bodley

      It is a pleasure! Just want to make things easier for everyone which smartphones to look at during the Black Friday period. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. Thank you for taking the time to comment.

  3. It’s definitely time for me to upgrade my phone as I am so behind the times. I love my Samsung Galaxy phone but I will be looking at the A22 5G. I’ve never had any problems with my old phone, it’s just getting old. You gave me lots of think about as I’ve been putting off paying for a new one for many years but the prices are brilliant. Great comparison, thanks.

    • Hi Lily

      I know the feeling. Some people like to stick with one phone till it does not work anymore. The Samsung A22 5G is a good affordable smartphone to look at. Just make sure it meets all your smartphone requirements. Thank you for the comment.

  4. I am definitely a Samsung advocate. I switched from the iPhone because they were just getting too expensive and now love the Samsung experience. I have just upgraded and now wish I had hung out for the Black Friday specials. Will definitely wait next year. Although I may look more closely at the armour covers for the phones. A bit of prevention and only a bit of money could save me a lot of heartache.


    • Hi Steve

      Many people tend to get upset for missing out black friday specials. But it is the risk a person takes. Cause some people had to go to stores during the Black Friday season period. Thus, do not feel bad.

      I hope you find the right armor cover for you. Thank you for the comment.
