Smartphones these days are anything but cheap if you want the best of everything, which is why occasional sales give a reason to buy those expensive phones you've been eyeing all along. Amazon, the largest e-commerce platform, is hosting a limited period sale on its website to give steep discounts on a wide range of products, including smartphones.

Amazon Prime Day Sale is a 48-hour sale that ends Tuesday, July 16. Premium smartphones from brands like OnePlus, Apple, Huawei and Samsung are on discount during this rush-hour sale and it might be the perfect time to upgrade your phone. As the name of the sale suggests, it is exclusively for Prime subscribers so if you haven't enrolled yet then it will cost Rs 129 a month or Rs 999 a year.

We've handpicked some of the best deals you should not miss during the Amazon sale.

OnePlus 6T

OnePlus 7 series is all the rage right now, but don't forget about last year's OnePlus 6T just yet. There's more reason to recall the former flagship as it is being treated with an excellent discount during Amazon Prime Day Sale.

OnePlus 6T is available at its lowest price, starting at Rs 26,999 for 6GB+128GB model. The higher configuration models, 8GB+128GB and 8GB+256GB, can be ordered for Rs 27,999 and Rs 31,999, respectively. This is an excellent deal on Amazon as it saves up to Rs 14,000 on the purchase and the device itself is not too bad even after the release of OnePlus 7.

Apple iPhone XR

If you ask anyone for an alternative to OnePlus 7 or OnePlus 7 Pro, the immediate response is the iPhone XR. You cannot get a better deal on Apple's flagship than the one you're getting during Amazon Prime Day Sale.

If you're happy with the base model, iPhone XR 64GB is going to cost you just Rs 49,999, which is Rs 26,901 cheaper than the launch price. The 128GB model is priced at Rs 54,999. The deal is so good that at the time of this writing both variants of iPhone XR were listed as sold out. You can keep checking for the stock or move on to other choices.

Samsung Galaxy S10

After Apple, Samsung takes huge precedence in premium phones. Samsung Galaxy S10 is worth checking out this Amazon sale. Since the iPhone XR is out of stock and if you're looking for a compact premium phone, then the Galaxy S10 won't disappoint you.
