Google Pixel 7a Prime Day deals
Google Pixel 7a: was
$499 now $399 at Amazon
Get the Pixel 7a unlocked via Amazon and save a neat $100 thanks the retailer's Big Deal Days sales event. With a Tensor G2 chip, 6.3-inch 90Hz Full HD+ OLED display, 8GB RAM and features such as Magic Eraser and Photo Unblur, the Pixel 7 is a great cheap alternative for those looking for a premium phone experience.
In our Google Pixel 7a review, US Phones Editor Philip Berne noted: “With blazing speed that drains the battery in no time, the Pixel 7a is like a European roadster. You get all the performance and style of the premier sports car, in a smaller package with some corners cut.”
However as the Pixel 7a saw a price hike over its very capable predecessor, the Google Pixel 6a, Berne concluded that “as with a great roadster, it’s best to wait until the Pixel 7a drops to a price that makes it irresistible”. Now, with this Amazon Prime Day deal, it looks like that time has come.
With a pair of very capable rear cameras (a main and ultrawide camera), paired with the smart processing of the Tenor G2 chip, the Pixel 7a puts in a good photography show and lands it on our list for the best camera phones.
A neat design that is thoroughly in the standard Pixel aesthetic, and impressive performance with a capable display are all positive marks on the Pixel 7a’s scorecard. And, as an experienced tech journalist and Pixel user, I’d say this is one of the phone deals to consider before Prime Day comes to a close.
If you’re after something different, particularly of the Samsung flavor, then Deals Editor Rob Dunne has a selection of UK phone deals he’d recommend – just cross-reference them with Amazon US for American equivalents.
