Budget smartphones for less than US$500 arguably offer the best bang for the buck for bargain hunters who don’t necessarily want to spend a four-digit sum on a brand-new mobile device. The Google Pixel 6a is probably one of the most notable handsets in this category, and thanks to a new deal on Amazon, the popular wallet-friendly Android phone has now returned to its lowest sale price to date.
The e-commerce behemoth from Seattle currently sells the Google Pixel 6a with the efficient Google Tensor SoC and 6GB of memory for just US$299 including free shipping. This deal applies to all three color variants of the budget Android smartphone – Charcoal, Chalk and the beautiful Sage. The device is further equipped with 128GB of integrated non-expendable storage, and this factory-unlocked unit is compatible with all major US mobile carriers. Most importantly, the current US$150 discount on Amazon matches the quite enticing Black Friday price of the Google Pixel 6a.
We reviewed the Google Pixel 6a a few months ago, and among other things, we praised the smartphone’s bright 6.1-inch AMOLED display including the practical always-on function. We also liked the fast processor, the IP67 certification for water and dust resistance as well as the well-performing dual camera setup. Frugal users will also like the fact that Google promises to provide five years of security updates for this budget-friendly handset. At US$299, this deal is an excellent choice for prospective buyers in this particular price segment.
