If you’re hunting for a new smartphone, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are great oppotunities to pick up a brand-spanking new device that’ll appease your needs for some time to come. In terms of what smartphones you should have on your radar, though, we’ve rounded up 5 of the most value-worthy devices that’ll give you serious bang for your buck this year.
Price: from R2,499
With more and more people looking to mid-range devices as opposed to purchasing the top-of-the-line, wallet-punishing flagship, Nokia is offering a fantastic Android option in the form of the Nokia 2.3. The features won’t blow anyone way (there is only 2GB of RAM and no finger-print scanner), but with a sizeable 6.2-inch HD+ screen, 13MP rear and 2MP front-facing cameras, a larger 4,000mAh battery, the Nokia 2.3 will offer more than enough for the average user, who ends up not utilising all the fancy bells and whistles on their R10k+ smartphones anyway.

Price: from R1,999
This brand-new entry-level Xiaomi is equipped with a massive 6.53” Dot Drop display for an immersive viewing experience and a 5000mAh high-capacity battery that’ll give you more juice for those longer days out-and-about. The Redmi 9A also features a MediaTek Helio G25 octa-core gaming chipset, which allows for a smooth operation and some seamless mobile gaming if that’s your poison. It also sports the AI-optimized 13MP rear camera that can quickly and easily capture crisp and clear images in light and dark scenarios.

With 4GBs of RAM and 65GB of storage, this is a suprisingly robust offering that, while it may not go toe-to-toe with the bigger South Korean and American giants out there, delivers all the bells, whistles, and functionality you need.
