Black Friday is upon us, and that means deals galore. As we mentioned in our gameplan for Apple buyers, though, the biggest “don’t” of Black Friday is to actually go to a physical store. To keep you in the comfort of your home today, we’ve pulled together all of the best deals for Google and Android fans — and all it takes is clicking a few buttons to have these products at your doorstep in a matter of days.

Google Store discounts see $200 price cut on Nexus 9, $80 off Nexus 5X [Amazon too]

Update: B&H also has the Nexus 5X at $80 off across the board.

Update: Looks like Amazon is upping the competition. The online retailer has price-matched the Google Store, and you can now pick up the 16GB Nexus 5X for $299 in black or white.  Sadly, the 32GB version is back-ordered, but the price is still listed at $349, the same as Google’s discounted price.

While you could pick up last year’s Nexus 6 64GB at a ridiculously low price ($260) on Amazon earlier today, Google’s official online store has some discounts of its own to offer for Black Friday. Perhaps most attractive is the $80 price cut on one of this year’s newest Nexus phones.

You can now buy the 32GB Nexus 5X for just $349 (down from $429), while the 16GB version is $299. At time of writing, all color options are in stock, but the discount only applies while inventory is there.  While it’s not the biggest discount we’ve ever seen, it’s still very generous given how new the Nexus 5X is. Google only announced the product last month, and it’s one of the only available phones to support Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box.

While stocks last, you can also snag the Nexus 9 at a discount. The tablet is down to just $199 for the 16GB version and $279 for the 32GB model, cutting the price down by a hefty $200. As things stand (at least until the Pixel C is available), the Nexus 9 is currently one of the only tablets available offering a pure Android experience. Multiple manufacturers have Android tablets on the market, but most come with a boat-load of bloatware. For $199 I’d argue you can’t get a better Android tablet if you value performance and software purity.

If you’re curious to see what other deals are out there today, be sure to bookmark 9to5Toys’ Black Friday page and 9to5Mac’s Black Friday Gameplan.

kindle-50-dollars

Along with all of its usual wide-ranging discounts, Amazon has slashed the prices of its own hardware for Black Friday. Despite the fact that its newest Android-based tablets were already crazily good value for money, you can now pick them up even cheaper. Prices now start as low as $35 for a Kindle Fire tablet, while the special Kids Edition and HD 6 have seen generous discounts too…

Nexus 6 down to an incredible $199 for Black Friday [Sold Out]

Update 2: 64GB ‘Deal of the Day’ model is also now sold out in both Midnight Blue and Cloud White. Update 1: As you’d expect, a deal this good didn’t last long. Amazon has already sold out of its 32GB ‘deal of the day’ inventory, but you can still pick up the 64GB version for $259.

A few months ago when the Nexus 6 dropped below $300 for the first time, we stood aghast at the sheer value of the deal. It’s still one of the best big phones available, especially if you want a pure Android experience. For today only, one of Amazon’s deals of the day is the Nexus 6, and it’s dropped to just $199 for the 32GB model or just $259 for the 64GB version.

For that kind of money, I can’t think of a single phone that comes close to offering the same experience as the Nexus 6. It may be last year’s flagship, but it’s still very much a flagship. It features a 5.9-inch Quad HD resolution AMOLED screen, 3GB RAM, Snapdragon 805 processor, 13MP camera and a 3220mAh battery, all in a solid metal-framed device with a comfortable (albeit really big) rounded back. What’s more, it supports Quick-Charge technology for superfast charging and is one of the few devices that already supports Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

If you’re after the best Android experience possible, but don’t want to pay a lot of money to get it, you won’t regret buying the Nexus 6, unless you really don’t want a big phone. It’s one of my personal favorites of the past year and — until the new Moto X came out — was my daily driver for months.

To stay on top of all Black Friday deals, be sure to keep an eye on 9to5Toys Black Friday page.

You can now purchase the OnePlus 2 and OnePlus X without an invite, plus discounts on accessories

Today is officially Black Friday, which means several companies will be selling various products at better-than-full prices. OnePlus’ version of a Black Friday weekend sale has begun and — instead of getting discounted smartphones — the company has made its phones available for open sale from today through until the 30th. That’s four full days of invite-free purchasing.

Both of the latest phones — the OnePlus X and OnePlus 2 — are available to buy all weekend and you won’t need an invite to purchase.

While the phones haven’t been discounted, the company has taken a percentage off the retail price of most of its accessories. Multiple OnePlus One accessories are available for 90% off, while accessories for the newer devices are 10% off. If you’ve been desperate to get your hands on the company’s new smartphones, now is the best opportunity to do so. To take advantage, head on over to OnePlus.net.

As for devices with actual discounts, we compiled a list of phones that we’d personally recommend buying, all of which have seen healthy price-cuts this week. What’s more, we’ve also rounded up some of the best gift ideas for you to consider, while our friends at 9to5Toys have an extensive list of all notable Black Friday deals running.

The HTC RE is one of the weirdest looking cameras that we’ve seen released this year. At a glance it looks like a tiny periscope or a colorful asthma inhaler.

Kindle Fire set record sales for Amazon on Black Friday

After reducing prices for the big shopping event known as “Black Friday,” Amazon said this morning that its Kindle Fire saw a record amount of sales of up to three times the previous record set. Amazon offered the base Kindle Fire at only £99, creating for an “incredible reaction” on Amazon.co.uk. The United States store surely saw similar numbers.

“In response to strong customer demand we included Kindle Fire in Black Friday deals week, dropping the price to just £99, and the reaction has been incredible. Customers purchased more than three times as many Kindle devices on Black Friday than on any other day in its history on Amazon.co.uk, and our previous record was impressive,” said Jorrit Van der Meulen, Vice President, Kindle EU.  “This fantastic Kindle Fire offer runs until midnight, Monday 26th November, so customers still have time to snap up a Kindle Fire in time for Christmas.”

A user on the SlickDeals forums spotted the Kindle Fire at both Target and Walmart available for only $123.88, on Sunday. That’s almost $80 off the original price! The sale is apparently unadvertised and it is unclear if it is still running in select stores, so we suggest you head over to your local store to check out this hell of a deal. You may even want to bring the above image with you to see if they can hook you up if the deal isn’t currently running (there’s also more after the break). It looks like you won’t be the only Kindle Fire user, seeing as Amazon had record sales (in the Kindle family) with the Kindle Fire this weekend — the company announced in a press release today. Check out the receipt after the break for more proof.
