Google’s Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro are considered the best Android phones for most people, and right now both are on sale for the lowest prices ever. In an early Black Friday sale, the 6.7-inch Pixel 8 Pro is now $799 at various retailers, while the 6.2-inch Pixel 8 is on sale for $549. This is $200 off the usual price of the Pixel 8 Pro and a $150 discount for the Pixel 8. These prices are for unlocked models with 128GB of storage. The 256GB Pixel 8 is available for $609, which is another $150 discount. The 256GB and 512GB versions of the Pixel 8 Pro are $200 off at $859 and $979, respectively. The deals apply to each color finish of the two devices.
We gave the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro scores of 90 and 93, respectively, in our review last month. Both phones offer a vivid OLED display with a smooth 120Hz refresh rate, solid battery life, and speedy performance via Google’s Tensor G3 chip, a typically clean take on Android and superb photo quality. Additionally, Google promises to provide OS and security updates for a full seven years. The Pixel 8 Pro has a sharper ultrawide lens and a dedicated 5x telephoto lens, and it supports more advanced controls in the camera app. Its display is slightly brighter and sharper and its battery lasts longer. If money is no object, the Pixel 8 Pro is the better of the two. However, the standard Pixel 8 is also a good option for less cash and its smaller frame is easier to hold with one hand.
For a more affordable option, the Pixel 7a is on sale for $374, which is a $125 discount and an all-time low. This 6.1-inch phone is a step down from the Pixel 8 in most aspects but it’s still a top recommendation for Android fans who can’t spend more than $500 on a new handset. In other Pixel deals, the Pixel Buds Pro are down to $120, within a dollar of the lowest price. Good deals can be found through Yahoo, Engadget, In The Know, and Autoblog’s experts.
