If you were holding out for Amazon Prime Day, hoping to score a big discount on Apple’s latest, the iPhone 12 series, then sadly you’re out of luck – iPhone 12 deals are a no-show in this year’s sale.

However, that doesn’t mean you can’t get a great price on one of the handsets. While Amazon hasn’t discounted any of the iPhone 12 series, other retailers and carriers are here to save you money. 

Where to look really depends on how you want your device. Are you looking to go unlocked or get a full cell phone plan? If it’s unlocked, going directly through the Apple Store is your best choice and for a full contract, Verizon has the best deals right now.

Of course, while Amazon’s Prime Day sale seems to be lacking for iPhone deals, there are plenty of other great mobile phones featured. The best come from Samsung and we’ve picked out the leading offers below.
