Get a Cheap Huawei, HTC, or Motorola Gadget for Black Friday

...

Huawei, a niche player in the US smartphone and tablet market, spent much of 2016 convincing Americans to give its products a chance. Its efforts included a glitzy press event in San Francisco in August to launch its youth-oriented Honor brand, complete with an appearance by David Beckham's skateboarding son, Brooklyn.

The phones of Huawei's rival HTC, on the other hand, have been for sale in the US since the dawn of Android, but it has also recently been branching out from smartphones and tablets into virtual reality with its Vive headset. Meanwhile, Lenovo now owns Motorola's smartphone division.

So it is no surprise that all three companies are coming out with their deal guns blazing for this year's Black Friday sales as they seek to continue their US expansion. Sales from Motorola and HTC are already live on their respective websites, while Huawei's are through third-party retailers and start throughout the week.

Motorola's deals are limited to $250 off bundles of the, Moto Z, Moto Z Force, or Moto Z Play with select "mods," which are attachments that you snap onto the back of the smartphones. Your mod choices are either the Hasselblad True Zoom, which gives your phone a 10x optical zoom, or the Insta-Share Projector, which projects your smartphone screen up to 70 inches.

Prices range from $457.99 for the Moto Z Play Droid bundle to $769.99 for the Moto Z Force Droid bundle. ("Droid" denotes Verizon-specific models with slightly different specs; non-Droid phones are unlocked). For more details on the phones and how Moto mods work, check out PCMag's full reviews of the Moto Z Force Droid, Moto Z Droid, and Moto Z Force Play.

Meanwhile, Microsoft, GameStop, Best Buy, Target, Walmart, Amazon, Staples, and Dell have also announced details of their Black Friday 2016 sales.
