SMARTPHONES – Like an air of Black Friday before the hour. But barely a month after its release, we already find the last iPhone 11 to 769 euros instead of 809 on Amazon.
This promo spotted this Friday, November 8 is all the more interesting as the iPhone Xr before him in 2018, the iPhone 11 is the best smartphone Apple of 2019 in terms of price / quality ratio.

Why The HuffPost certify this promo … but advise you to wait
If you are a convinced "pommiste" and want to renew your smartphone, or you are a party defector on Android who wants to repent, the iPhone 11 is currently the best gateway to the catalog of Apple.

Thus, for 300 euros less than the iPhone 11 Pro, you get the same processor Bionic A 13, as much RAM (4 GB), the same ultra-wide-angle photo performance and night mode (not in zoom ) as well as better autonomy than on the iPhone Xr.
The product is here shipped and sold by Amazon, so you do not have a priori worry about the after sales service and a possible return. The price of 769 euros is actually lower than the 809 euros generally charged by other e-merchants.
But, if we observe the price evolution of the iPhone 11 on Amazon only (via camelcamelcamel.com), we realize that the smartphone is often "promo."
On October 12, it was already 749 euros, 20 euros less than the promo examined here. And the average price charged by Amazon (excluding MarketPlace) since the release of the iPhone 11 is 784 euros.
So you save 15 euros in reality, the reference price barred 809 euros displayed by Amazon is not the one practiced by the platform itself.
Overall, the promo is real and the reduction interesting, although less important than expected. We certify you its "authenticity", but we advise you to wait until the three short weeks before Black Friday.
As we have seen, the iPhone 11 regularly benefits from lower prices on Amazon and you will have more chances to get a better discount during the commercial period that is Black Friday.
Before its release last September, we tried to predict with the price comparison Idealo the monthly price cuts of the iPhone 11 based on those of previous models of iPhone.
Projections estimated that two months after its release (in November), the iPhone 11 would fall to 746 euros on average. The evolution of its price on Amazon gives us hope that the trend will be confirmed.
How? 'Or' What The HuffPost check the promos
In recent years, sales are down and fashion is in permanent promotions, especially online. They flood social networks, newsletters and specialized sites. So much so that some people buy only according to the discount put forward by the sellers.
The problem is that these promotions are not always. They sometimes deceive the consumer by mentioning an original price higher than the reality, offer similar products, but different, coming from abroad.
And even if the price decrease is real, remains the question of its relevance. Even with 20% promotion, a disastrous value product will never be a good investment. It is for all these reasons that The HuffPost decided to check the relevance of these permanent promotions.
The promos we select are those that are most shared on the web at a time T. These may be offers identified on aggregators of promos like Dealabs, flash sales on e-commerce sites or those shared by specialized tech sites.
At first, we are only interested in promotions on categories of products that we regularly test like smartphones, noise reduction headphones or wireless headphones.
We then compare the quality of the product found during our tests and research with the new quality / price ratio once the promotion is applied.
For the moment, we make the choice to approve only the offers of sites based in France.
But, especially for tech products, we will gradually expand our spectrum to foreign sites as our expertise in the field becomes more refined.
During Black Friday, you will be offered a "fact-checking" of the most interesting promotions for the categories on which we developed an expertise during our numerous tests and comparatives:
