Pixel 6 deals


Best Buy is offering a $100 price cut on the Pixel 6 if you activate it on T-Mobile and a $150 one if you activate it on Verizon. Meanwhile, Target is offering the phone with a $50 discount unlocked.

The best Pixel 6 deal right now is on Best Buy, where you can get it for the insane $450 if you buy it unlocked and activate service with AT&T. That's a $150 price drop! If you don't fancy AT&T you can still get the Pixel 6 for $500 with the same deal through the rest of the listed carriers. AT&T is offering the Pixel 6 at 50% off with a new unlimited plan and no trade-in required.

Both the regular Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro have the same famed Tensor chipset inside them, powering all the smart AI features. The differences between the two models lie primarily in the screen size, resolution, and refresh rate; RAM; and the addition of a 42MP telephoto camera on the Pro version.

Pixel 5 deals


We are yet to see any Black Friday offers when it comes to the Pixel 5. Given that it is now a one-year-old phone and has been officially discontinued, we expect to see at least some offers start popping up by the end of the week. Check this article once in a while for new deals, as we will be regularly updating it.

Pixel 5a and Pixel 4a 5G deals


The Pixel 5a is Google's most budget-friendly handset on the market right now. While it is a very slight upgrade from the Pixel 4a and doesn't come with the recently-debuted Tensor chip, it still proves a great option. Currently, the Pixel 5a has a $50 discount on the Google Store. You can save even more through Google's own wireless provider—Google Fi—which is offering the Pixel 5a for $349. Now that's a bargain!

Like the Pixel 5, the Pixel 4a 5G is yet to be the subject of any special Black Friday deals. However, being a one-year-old model itself, we could see some tasty offers start to appear prior to and on November 26.

Which Pixel should you get?


If you are finding yourself in the frustrating position of "Pixel peeping", then hopefully a few of the following facts and some advice from our end will help you with your decision.

Like with any other purchase, it is best to begin with your budget. Keep in mind that many of the perks a Pixel phone offers can be found in older models too, so you don't necessarily need the latest one to enjoy the Google experience. Having said that, the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro have brought many changes to the series, many of which can be attributed to the Tensor chip found only in these two models. These two are real powerhouses and the best Pixels Google has built so far.

Tensor opens up the realm of AI possibilities, making the Pixel 6 lineup one of the "smartest" smartphones in the industry at the moment. A good example is its text-to-speech capabilities. The new Pixels are capable of accurately writing down whatever you can throw at them, and on top of that, they do so with correct grammar, spelling, and punctuation.


There are a few things to take into consideration here. First of all, the price difference is pretty steep, with the Pixel 6 Pro version adding a hefty $300 on top of that of the Pixel 6, which is $600. The few extra hundred bucks give you a larger battery, a bit more RAM, and a more advanced screen with a 120Hz refresh rate (Pixel 6 has 90Hz) and an added 4x optical zoom camera on the back.

Additionally, the Pixel 6 Pro has a 4x optical zoom camera on the back unlike its sibling, which only has the ultra-wide and the main cameras. Another improvement is the selfie camera. The Pro has an 11.1 MP ultra-wide capable of 4K at 30fps, while the Pixel 6 has an 8 MP wide that can only do 1080p at 30fps.

Admittedly, it sounds like there is a vast gap between the two models. However, despite being numerous, the differences between the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro are not so significant. Both share the same chipset and main camera, which are some of the most important parts of a phone. Another integral part is the screen, and yes—the cheaper model has a 90Hz compared to the 120Hz on the Pro, but few would actually notice the difference.


All's to say, the regular Pixel 6 is plenty enough for most users out there. The $600 price tag ($550 with current deals) makes it a great bargain, and you likely won't be left disappointed. However, if you want flagship features on top of that solid foundation, the Pixel 6 Pro adds plenty such, and at a competitive price at that.

If you don't necessarily need a Tensor-powered Pixel, then you might want to consider the Pixel 5a. Like the Pixel 6 series, the Pixel 5a also came out this year, and it served as a modest refresh of last year's Pixel 5. It has zero "wow" factor, but it compensates by covering all the basics and won't leave you hanging in everyday regular use. Not to mention that you would be hard-pressed in finding a better camera on a $450 smartphone ($400 with current discount).

The pixel 4a 5G on the other hand, is also a great choice if you don't care that much for the better battery and the IP67 water and dust resistance found on the 5a.
