There are very few phones in the market even now that have quadruple cameras. It’s rare and exactly one of the many reasons why Best Buy’s early Black Friday deal for the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra stands out. 

Right now you can get the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra for a super low price of $399 at Best Buy. That's a whopping $800 off, making this one of the best early Black Friday phone deals around. This is for the AT&T version of the phone, while the Verizon one fetches for $499. 

Update Nov 17: The Galaxy S22 Ultra's price has bee shifting between $399 and $499 recently, but it's been knocked down to its lowest price we've seen so far at $349.

Armed with quadruple cameras, a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, and a gorgeous 6.8-inch Super AMOLED, the Galaxy S22 Ultra can still beat some of the best phones today. Best Buy's $800 discount off the original price makes this phone even more appealing.

Let that sink in. The Galaxy S22 Ultra launched in 2022 with a price of $1,199, setting the bar even higher for premium flagship phones. I personally can’t fathom myself ever paying that amount for any phone, even if I think the Galaxy S22 Ultra can still beat some of the best phones today.

This Samsung Galaxy phone deal translates to a 66% discount. This is an incredible deal because the Galaxy S22 price is effectively reduced down to the level of most mid-range phones, like the Pixel 7a and iPhone SE (2022).

The Galaxy S22 Ultra still offers the same 100x Super Zoom as the newer Galaxy S23 Ultra. At one point, the Galaxy S22 Ultra held a spot in our best camera phones list, thanks in part to the incredible performance of its 108MP main camera. It also can record video in 8K resolution, so it offers extra utility for video editors such as myself when it comes to having a little wiggle room during the editing process.

And finally, the Galaxy S22 Ultra remains a productivity workhorse thanks to its outstanding multi-tasking, responsive performance courtesy of its Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip, and the included S Pen. It’s also literally like a computer in my pocket because I’ve frequently leveraged Samsung DeX to get that desktop PC experience whenever I’ve connected the phone to a monitor via USB-C.
