Although we're on day two of Prime Day, there are still plenty of chances to buy some of the best phones at even better prices.
Amazon is particularly good at offering killer deals on unlocked phones. So if you're still browsing through the best cheap cell phone plans or don't have a phone to trade in (as many carriers require), Prime Day phone deals can make it easy to upgrade to a new phone on the cheap. Just be aware that Amazon's Prime Day deals require an Amazon Prime membership.
Another thing to keep in mind is that Amazon's deals are good for unlocked models. These phones aren't locked to any specific carriers, which gives you the freedom to sign up for a plan that's right for you.
Amazon doesn't typically do iPhone deals, so we're including some iPhone deals from other retailers too. Beyond Amazon, we expect to see various cell phone deals from competing sites like Best Buy. Carriers like Verizon and AT&T will also likely add some deals of their own to the mix. Make sure to follow our Prime Day deals coverage for the best sales now through the end of Prime Day.

How to find the best phone deals
Prime Day phone deals can vary widely from device to device. Typical savings range from $50 to $100 off the leading models, with some of the most substantial savings occurring during Amazon's 48-hour event.
Chief among these will be budget offerings, but Google and Samsung flagships are in the mix. Beware something that looks too good to be true. Oftentimes, carriers and retailers will hide the true price behind activation or payment plan deals. These require you to tie yourself to a 24- or 36-month contract to receive the bill credits (lest you pay the carrier back for the remainder). You'll also sometimes need a trade-in and/or new line activation.
In your search, you might come across some refurbished devices (marked as "Renewed"). These can be hit or miss, so approach them with caution.
