Samsung has stopped selling the original S21 family, but the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE offers similar hardware for slightly less. It has a large, 6.4-inch OLED screen, as well as a Snapdragon 888 processor, the same kind that was in every flagship phone last year. However, the $700 asking price makes it only $100 less than the Galaxy S23, which runs faster, offers better build quality, and will receive updates more frequently. The Pixel 7, meanwhile, costs $100 less and provides a better software experience and superior camera performance.
But no matter which model works best for your needs, there's no reason to pay more than you have to. Below, you'll find our roundup of all the best deals on all Pixel phones that you can shop for right now, from both carriers and retailers.
There are a few benefits that come with buying your Pixel 7 from Google directly. For one, all models and colors are in stock, so you don't have to worry about getting your ideal configuration, and Google allows you to buy your phone outright, as opposed to an installment plan required by some retailers and carriers.
AT&T's offers vary a bit depending on which Pixel 7 model you're looking at. If you want the base model Pixel 7, you can save up to $380 when purchasing on an installment plan and with activation on a qualifying unlimited plan -- no trade-in required. And if you're looking for a Pixel 7 Pro, you can cash in on recycling your former device with a trade-in credit of up to $1,000 (with the flagship phones for Apple, Samsung and Google bringing in the highest values) -- and there is no new line required.
And no matter which phone you're buying, you can get a free $200 Verizon gift card when you switch your existing number over from another carrier. Verizon is also offering some other bonuses, including $400 off select smartwatches (though you'll need a service plan for that as well) and 50% off a pair of Pixel Buds Pro.
Best Buy has also partnered with several mobile carriers, and is offering some carrier-exclusive discounts as well. Verizon customers can save up to $800 with an eligible trade-in, which even includes old and damaged phones. T-Mobile is offering its customers up to $600 off with an eligible trade-in, but you'll need to sign up on a qualifying Magenta Max plan as well to get the discount. At the moment, Best Buy isn't carrying any models for AT&T customers, so they'll have to look elsewhere for discounts.
CNET's Lisa Eadicicco called Google's affordable next-gen Pixel 6A the \"best Android phone under $500.\" It's slightly smaller than the full-size Pixel 7, and features a 6.1-inch OLED display with a refresh rate of 60Hz. It's equipped with 128GB of storage and 6GB of RAM, which is slightly less than the standard Pixel 7 has, but is still more than sufficient for most people's needs. It also boasts 5G capabilities and support for Wi-Fi 6 for lightning-fast browsing. It's already a solid value at its usual price of $449, but we've rounded up some of the best deals and offers out there so you can pick one up for even less.
If you're after an unlocked Pixel 6A, Google is one of the best places to shop right now. Not only does it have all colors and configurations available, but it's offering a straightforward $150 discount, which drops the starting price down to $299. Google also has its own trade-in program where you can save up to $250 more in exchange for devices from Apple, Google, Samsung and more.
Amazon has beat Google's Pixel 6A discount by $10 and is offering as much as $160 off right now. Though some color variants are currently sold out. And like Google, Amazon has its own trade-in program, where you can save up to $401 in exchange for your old phones and devices.
Both new and existing AT&T customers can grab the Pixel 6A for just $2 per month when purchasing on an installment plan and with activation on a qualifying unlimited plan. That locks you into a 36-month plan, but saves you $398 compared to AT&T's price, or $377 compared to the price from Google. It's also worth noting that AT&T only has the charcoal variant available at the moment, so you'll have to shop elsewhere if you have your heart set on a different color.
The previous-gen Pixel 6 is almost two years old at this point, and it's getting pretty tough to find new models in stock. But if you're committed to snagging one of these older flagship phones, Amazon still has a few available that you can pick up for hundreds less than the original price. Google no longer carries the Pixel 6 and most retailers and carriers have shifted their offers over to the newer Pixel 7 models, so this is just about the only deal you'll find out there at the moment.
The best Google Pixel phones are a great choice if you don't want one of the latest Apple iPhone (opens in new tab) or Samsung phone (opens in new tab) models. Google phones tend to be slightly cheaper than other smartphone devices, but they're still high-end phones packed with the latest camera features and technology.
The Pixel 7 sports a design that, while divisive, feels considered and premium. The cameras sit within an imposing aluminum band that helps the phone stand out from the crowd, especially in its price range, and the smaller 6.3-inch display size and thinner bezels (compared to the Pixel 6) mean the Pixel 7 is more comfortable to hold, and more pocketable, than before.
The biggest shortcomings are most notable in areas where this phone, by design, trails behind the Pixel 7 Pro, with its slower 90Hz peak refresh rate display (versus 120Hz on the Pro) and the absence of a dedicated telephoto camera chief among them.
The main visual update is to the signature black glass 'visor' of a camera bar that previously concealed each phone's various lenses. This year, it's been replaced by a predominantly metal one, which makes a feature of the lenses rather than hiding them. It's equally divisive and unique all at once, making this series of Pixels just as instantly recognizable as the last in a crowded field.
As for the metal in question, the use of lightly textured aluminum on the Pixel 7 (it's polished on the Pixel 7 Pro) gives the phone an almost jewelry-like quality, especially on this generation's standout Lemongrass color option (pictured). On this phone the metal is gold-tinted, rather than silver or dark gray, as you'll find on the other two available finishes: Snow (white / silver) and Obsidian (black / gunmetal).
Google's choice of 100%-recycled aluminum (a material Apple might want to consider switching to for its next best iPhones), paired with the marginally smaller footprint of the standard Pixel 7 (compared to its direct predecessor) helps keep the phone's weight down to a respectable 197 grams.
Opting for a similar design to the previous year's Pixels means the Pixel 7 isn't the most svelte or elegant smartphone out there, and considering its screen size, it still feels a little too big in the hand. However, the Pixel 7 isn't meant to be a 'mini' Pixel, relative to the 7 Pro (the better fit for that moniker would be the rumored Pixel 7a).
As on the Pixel 6, there's a USB-C port and a set of twin grilles on the bottom edge of the phone's rounded frame. The power key and volume rocker run down the right side, and the whole thing is IP68-certified against water and dust.
As alluded to already, the Pixel 7 is a fraction smaller than the Pixel 6, dropping from a 6.4-inch display to 6.3 inches This helps to more clearly differentiate it from the super-sized 6.7-inch Pixel 7 Pro, and also means it's one of a relatively small number of Android phones worth considering at this screen size.
The bezels have also shrunk, compared to last year's model (though there's still a 'chin'), but even with the subtly-rounded edges of the Gorilla Glass Victus-protected screen, the phone still appears a little bulkier than its screen size would suggest. Despite being the smaller model of this year's duo, it sports the same display size as found on the 'XL' Pixels of old, like the Google Pixel 4 XL.
One upgrade we'd love to have seen this year is a higher refresh rate for the display. You still get a beautiful OLED panel that offers great viewing angles, nice colors and deep blacks, and which feels responsive, but it still tops out at only 90Hz. Sure, it might still make iPhone 14 owners envious, but in the Android world, for a device of this caliber and price, a toggle between a fixed 60Hz or 90Hz (where supported) feels really behind the curve now.
As is the Google way, its Google's latest flagship phones arrive with the latest version of its mobile OS: Android 13. There are three years of OS upgrades promised too (along with five years of security patches), so you'll get not just Android 14, but Android 15 and 16 as well. 59ce067264
