Google Pixel 6A

The Pixel 6A is our favorite Android phone (8/10, WIRED recommends), and that’s the lowest price we’ve seen (launched just last month). The Google Tensor chip is a standout feature, but our favorite software features are the high-accuracy voice typing assistant, so you can speak your messages instead of typing them; Hold on for me, to avoid long and tedious waiting times; And Now Playing, to see which song is playing without having to ask. There’s no wireless charging or charging bricks built into the Pixel 6A, but this phone is water-resistant, has an excellent camera system, and features a bright OLED display.

The Pixel 7 is right around the corner, but that’s still a great price (lowest we’ve ever seen) for last year’s Pixel 6 (9/10, WIRED recommends). Its larger camera sensors mean it can take some of the best photos of any smartphone right now. Upgrades over the Pixel 6A include a 90Hz screen for smooth animation, a larger OLED display, wireless charging support, and better build materials. You’ll get two additional operating system upgrades and four more years of security updates. If you want a bigger phone and an excellent 4X optical zoom camera, the Google Pixel 6 Pro is on sale for $649 (US$250) at Target.

The Pixel Buds A-Series headphones (8/10, WIRED recommends) are most people’s favorite wireless earbuds. It has great sweat resistance and comfortable strength, in addition, it is paired with Android phones And the iPhones very quickly. The only downside to pairing with an iPhone is that you won’t get Google Assistant integration. It sounds better than Apple’s basic AirPods, so it might still be worth it.

Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra

The Galaxy S22 series (9/10, WIRED recommendations) are some of the best Android phones you can buy. They pack almost everything you could want in a smartphone, from powerful processors to powerful batteries that last a little more than a full day. Most people will be happy with the Galaxy S22’s standard and manageable size. This is the lowest price we’ve ever tracked. If you want a bigger phone, the S22+ is on sale for $750 ($250).

The S22 Ultra is the best Android phone, and not just because it has a built-in stylus. Its 6.8-inch screen is huge, but our favorite feature is the 10x optical zoom camera, which lets you zoom out to a great distance while still getting clear shots of your subject. You can read more about the differences in the S22 series here.

This is an excellent smartphone at MSRP, and this discount makes the deal even sweeter (although the phone does drop to this price frequently). The Galaxy A53 (8/10, WIRED Recommendations) has a large 6.5-inch AMOLED display with a screen refresh rate of 120Hz, good cameras, and an all-day battery. It’ll stay updated longer than any other Android phone at this price: Samsung promises four operating system upgrades and five years of security updates. Just know that there’s no headphone jack and wireless charging, but you do get a MicroSD card slot.

OnePlus phone offers

OnePlus 10

The OnePlus 10 Pro (7/10, WIRED recommendations) is a good phone, but it costs a lot for what you get. That’s why OnePlus has officially cut its MSRP from $900 to $800 this month, and this deal drops even more. You get some of the fastest charging, so if you often find yourself with a port charging your phone, this is the device you want. It has smooth performance, 120Hz screen, and capable cameras. Just know that if you use AT&T, you will only get 4G LTE, as this device does not support 5G.

The Nord N20 5G (7/10, WIRED recommendations) is a much more affordable option than most of the devices on this list, but that doesn’t mean many compromises. You still get an AMOLED display, all-day battery, and excellent performance. It even has NFC support so you can make contactless payments. It will get three years of security updates but only one OS upgrade. There’s no 5G support on AT&T, and 5G doesn’t work on Verizon either, so it’s really best for anyone on T-Mobile.

The OnePlus 9 (8/10, WIRED recommended) is last year’s OnePlus flagship, and it’s a pretty good phone. You’ll get two more OS upgrades and three more years of security updates, so it’ll last some time, but the point here is that you’re getting top-notch performance for a great price. You will have no problem with the most demanding games. It even supports wireless charging and has a 120Hz AMOLED display. The cameras are fine.

Motorola Phone Offers

Moto G Stylus 2022

The Moto G Stylus 2022 is perfect Fine phone, but it’s a much better value at this price. You get a two-day battery, a 90Hz LCD screen, and three years of security updates. The performance has actually fallen from its predecessor, which is unusual, but it still works well enough. There is still no NFC to let you pay with your phone, and I didn’t find the built-in stylus very useful. However, for $200, it will do the job.

The Moto G 5G is another Motorola phone that was quite expensive for what you get at MSRP but a better deal at this price. There is support for 5G networks, a day and a half battery life, and decent performance. It will get three years of security updates but only one OS upgrade. NFC is still not available, so you can’t make contactless payments, and the cameras are dimmed.
