On the one hand, it’s great that Android has reached the point where software optimization means we can have phones that last all day (and then some). But there’s nothing worse than stepping away from the charger and your phone running out of power before you even get home.
We’re already seeing some great deals early this Cyber Monday on portable chargers, headlined by the Chargeek Storm 2 Slim. Chargeek has come out of nowhere with its portable charger that features a “unique transparent design with yellow accents”. Charging speeds are up to 130W, and you can save $70 on Amazon for a limited time.
Anker’s portable chargers are still among the best of the bunch, and that point was driven home even more with the release of the GaNPrime suite of portable chargers. We’ve been seeing a few different deals on Anker chargers, but our two favorites are the Anker 737 PowerCore and the Anker 733. With the former you can save $50, and the latter is on sale for $25 off.
OnePlus may not be the “beloved” phone maker it once was, but that doesn’t mean the company has stopped releasing phones that offer incredible value. A good example of this is the OnePlus Nord N200 5G, which is easily one of the cheapest 5G phones on the market and, as part of some early Cyber Monday deals, can be yours for just $170. Or you can bundle the Nord N200 with the new OnePlus Nord Buds for just over $200.
Those looking for a flagship Android phone will want to check out the OnePlus 10T or OnePlus 10 Pro. With the former, you get the latest OnePlus flagship, powered by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor. The 6.7-inch Fluid Display features an adaptive 120Hz refresh rate, while also supporting HDR10+. There are two configurations available, but the 8GB/128GB model offers a much better value at $575 on Cyber Monday.
Rounding out the latest deals on OnePlus phones is the OnePlus 10 Pro, which first arrived in the US in March after a limited China-only release in January. The 10 Pro is also powered by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, which is paired with either 8GB or 12GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage. But the best deal this time around is for the base model, discounted by $250 at both Amazon and Best Buy.
Need a top notch phone for less? Google Pixel 7 is exactly what you’re looking for then. At $499, this weekend’s amazing Cyber Monday deal gets you $100 off the already great regular price, making it one of the best buys right now.
Amazon and Best Buy have the same deals, and while they both accept trade-ins, Best Buy generally offers a bit more for your old phone than Amazon does. You can even get one for free from AT&T if you have an old phone to trade in. Otherwise, Verizon’s buy-one-get-one-free deal is another great option.
The Google Pixel 7 (Opens in a new tab) It packs one of the best phone cameras in a newly redesigned body that’s sleeker than ever. The new Google Tensor G2 processor enables even more AI-powered features than the Pixel 6, including a new Photo Unblur utility that can take old photos — yes, even those taken from other cameras or phones — and effectively de-blur them with a spoof Artificial intelligence on board processor. It doesn’t work for every photo but it does some serious magic when it does.
While the Pixel 7 does not have a telephoto sensor, it is more expensive Google Pixel 7 Pro (Opens in a new tab) He certainly does. A new 5x periscope camera enables the Pixel 7 Pro to zoom in clearly up to 30x away, and Google’s clever machine learning techniques can make those photos look sharper than other phones with the same zoom capabilities. All in all, this is a great reason to buy the Pixel 7 family phone.
Need a case for your newly purchased Google Pixel 6a? Luckily, these are also on sale for the Cyber Monday weekend. Cases like the Tudia MergeGrip in Green Lily (pictured above) perfectly complement the Pixel 6a’s cool color scheme and really add to the experience.
Some of my personal favorites can be found in the links above, and while none of them have amazing sales—most cases aren’t that expensive to begin with, after all—it’s still nice to get a few bucks off of something you definitely need.
If none of these tickle your fancy, check out our site The best Google Pixel 6a cases (Opens in a new tab) final set of options.
If you think you missed out on the best Black Friday deal, don’t worry, it’s not over yet. That’s right, you can still get Google Pixel 6a (Opens in a new tab) For an incredible $299 from Amazon or Best Buy, the latter might be the best place to get this deal since you can pop into a store. Immediately And pick up the phone.
In short, $300 for the Pixel 6a is almost a criminally good deal. This package includes the same Google Tensor processor that was present in the more expensive Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, as well as two great cameras on the back: one main camera and one wide-angle camera.
As you’d expect, photos and videos from your Pixel phone will blow your mind every time, and the processing prowess of Google Tensor means animated kids or pets will still make faces appear crisp thanks to Face Unblur technology. Seriously, it feels like magic every time you see her in action.
At this price, the Pixel 6a is the phone of the year because of the amazing value it brings. There’s really no way to undersell them. If you don’t need a 100x telephoto zoom or some other specialized feature, there’s no reason to buy another phone in 2022.
Best Buy has a slew of great Samsung cases for sale to go along with your new foldable phone purchase. My personal favorite of the bunch, pictured above, is the Samsung Standing Cover case for the Z Fold 4 which includes the legendary S Pen that sits nicely in a holster on the back of the case. You can always swap this out for a kickstand if you prefer, but they both come in the box for a great place to be $27 off (Opens in a new tab).
