One of Black Friday’s Best Deals Is This Google Pixel 6A for $299

One of Black Friday’s Best Deals Is This Google Pixel 6A for 9

This story is part of Gift Guide, our year-round collection of the best gift ideas.

The latest in Google’s line of Pixel phones, the Pixel 7 series, hit shelves last month. However, if you don’t want to drop a huge amount of money on a phone right now, there’s a fantastic deal on the Pixel 6A. This is a record-low deal, too. For this sale week only, you can snag one of the best Black Friday deals. The Google Pixel 6A is only $299, down $150 from its regular price.  

However, there’s no clear-cut expiration on this offer, and deals this good rarely last for long. We’d recommend getting your order in sooner rather than later if you want to take advantage of these savings. 

Sporting a 6.1-inch OLED display, Titan M2 chip, Google Tensor processor, Google’s Android operating system, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, this budget phone certainly delivers a lot of bang for the buck. That’s why we’ve named it the best Android phone under $500 on the market right now.

The 12.2-megapixel camera may be a step down from the camera on the Pixel 6. But it’s still a great camera for the price, and it comes equipped with tools including the Magic Eraser, Motion Mode and Portrait Mode. 

This phone can last over 24 hours on a single charge, depending on how you use it. The battery is adaptive and learns which apps you use the most, which can save you power by not wasting your battery life on the ones you rarely use. This phone is IP67-rated water- and dust-resistant, so your phone should be safe in most environments and conditions. 

Another great feature this phone offers is Live Translate, which will help you translate signs, live video captions and private chats and messages in up to 55 languages. At $299, this is a solid phone worth checking out.
