Amazon has just massively discounted both the Google Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro this week thanks to the retailer's massive Big Spring Sale - so much so, in fact, that both devices are now down to a record-low price.

Over in the US, you can currently get the standard Pixel 8 for just $499 (was $699) and the Pixel 8 Pro for $749 (was $999), with huge discounts of up to $200. Both these are incredible prices for unlocked flagships and square up favorably to the competition. The Samsung Galaxy S24, for example, is currently $749 at Amazon.

Readers in the UK will be pleased with the retailer's exceptionally low price of just £504.99 (was £699) today, which again is record-low price. Note that you'll need to apply a coupon at checkout to get your full discount (it's an extra £50 off the current listing price). Unfortunately, the Pro model isn't also on sale right now in the UK, although we'll update this page if we spot anything else. 

At $200 off, the standard Google Pixel 8 is a particularly great value buy with its superb cameras, 120Hz display, and Tensor G3 chipset. Sure, it doesn't quite match the S24 when it comes to outright power but it's a whopping $250 cheaper and it's plenty quick for everyday use.

The Pixel 8 Pro gets you a bigger display, more advanced camera features (mainly a much better zoom), and more RAM under the hood. These upgrades come at a high upcharge but it's worth it if you're an avid mobile photographer who loves a larger phone. 

Unlike most Google Pixel 8 deals at the major carriers, you don't need to trade-in to get a discount with these Amazon discounts. They're simply upfront price cuts that anyone can take advantage of - and pair up with their plan of choice.

Looking for a more premium device? The Google Pixel 8 Pro is also down to a record-low price in today's sale at Amazon. While arguably not quite as good value as the standard device at $500, the Pro features more RAM, a bigger and more advanced display, and better lenses on the camera. It's a worthwhile upgrade - especially if you prefer a larger display on your phone.
