You won’t believe how cheap the Pixel 8 is already

Cyber Monday keeps the hot deals going with a big saving on the new Google Pixel 8 Android smartphone.

Amazon US is offering the Pixel 8 for $549, which is a $150 saving. The phone went on sale for $699 around six weeks ago, so this is quite the deal.

This deal is for an unlocked version of the Android 14 smartphone, which means you’ll be able to use it on any network.

It’s for the 128GB storage version and there are a choice of three colours, including black, hazel and rose. Amazon Prime members can get one day delivery as part of their subscription.

The Pixel 8 is the latest flagship phone from Google and was released alongside the Pixel 8 Pro back in October.

The phone has a 6.2-inch display OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, which our reviewer calls “impressively bright” and capable of reaching 2000nits for HDR content. The resolution is 1080 x 2400 and there’s a 428 pixels per inch density.

There are a pair of rear cameras, including a 50-megapixel main and 12-megapixel ultrawide camera, along with a slew of AI capture and editing features.

The whole phone is powered by the third-generation Google Tensor processor and backed by 8GB of RAM. The performance is up there with the Samsung Galaxy S23 and other top Android fans of the ilk in our benchmarking tests.

Our reviewer gave the phone a 4.5 star rating from a possible five and we were impressed with the display, performance, all day battery life. There’s also 7 years of OS upgrades with the Pixel 8. The fact it comes with Android 14 out of the box is another bonus.

An undeniably strong camera-focused smartphone with charming AI features and exceptional long-term software support.

Pros

  • Impressive camera performance with unique AI features
  • Solid 6.2-inch OLED display
  • All-day battery life
  • 7 years of OS upgrades

Cons

  • Dated design
  • No telephoto lens
  • Raw performance is behind other flagships

Our reviewer concluded: “The new AI-infused shooting modes and photo editing features bolster Google’s AI-powered focus with some pretty cool tricks not available on any other smartphone. It won’t be for everyone, but if you like to edit your snaps before sharing on social media, the Pixel 8 is perfect.

“Google’s clean approach to Android 14 is also ideal, with no bloatware and some genuinely helpful AI-powered features that are, again, exclusive to the Pixel 8.

“The best part is that it’ll continue to improve for years with an industry-leading promise of 7 OS upgrades that’ll take the phone to Android 21. That’s a good few extra years compared to other flagships like the Samsung Galaxy S23, and represents one of the big reasons to get yourself a Pixel.”
