Why Buy:

  • Unbeatable camera AI features
  • Google’s in-house Tensor processor for on-device AI features like speech recognition
  • Five years of updates
  • Titan M2 chip for security

The Google Pixel 6 marks a new era of mobile computing, with the company’s Tensor chip specially designed to power artificial intelligence (A.I.) features on the go without any data being transmitted to cloud servers. The Pixel lineup, including the Pixel 6 and Google Pixel 6 Pro, is known for great cameras and this year, Google brings a set of modern camera sensors to pair with the advancement in computational photography. Along with photography, the Google Pixel 6’s Tensor chip also improves videography on the smartphone, with special emphasis on HDR during video recording. Apart from camera features, the smartphone is also capable of Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) that is used to actively translate text within various apps including Google Messages, Recorder, and Live Caption.

Although the Pixel 6 gets one less rear camera sensor than its Pro sibling, it gets the same magical photo editing features such as Face Unblur to sharpen faces in shaky images, Magic Eraser to remove unwanted photobombers, and better aptitude while calibrating the natural skin tones of people. At $499, the Google Pixel 6 Cyber Monday deal is an absolute steal for anyone who wants flagship-level photography and processing capabilities without investing a fortune in a smartphone. In addition, Pixel 6 also gets many exclusive features, alongside the fastest Android updates that put it a step ahead of other phones running Android 12.

OnePlus 9 Pro (256GB) — $900, was $1,070

Why Buy:

  • Rich and vibrant display
  • Superfast performance
  • Bloat-free interface with many productivity features
  • Superfast charging

OnePlus has been on a phenomenal journey, from making affordable flagship killers to competing head-on with heavyweights such as the iPhone 13 Pro and the Galaxy S21 Ultra. But OnePlus’s flagship-level pricing comes because of the major advancements brought to the company’s high-end series over the years. The OnePlus 9 Pro comes with a gorgeous and high-end 6.7-inch LTPO display with a 120Hz refresh rate, which implies that anything that you watch on this display will have great contrast and HDR, as well as incredible fluidity. Internally, the combination of Qualcomm 888 and up to 12GB RAM means the phone never slows down, regardless of what you throw at it, as we saw in our OnePlus 9 Pro review. One of the major advancements that the OnePlus 9 Pro brings over any older OnePlus phone is in the cameras that use Hasselblad’s color science for richer and more color-accurate images than ever.

In terms of software, too, OnePlus’s OxygenOS is one of the most beloved Android-based user interfaces for its abundance of features that complement your abilities without distracting you with anything that is unwanted. For those who are always on the move, the OnePlus 9 Pro gets support for superfast wired and wireless charging. With $170 slashed off its usual price, the 256GB OnePlus 9 Pro becomes even more charming.

Apple iPhone 13 Pro — $900, was $1,000

Why Buy:

  • Phenomenal cameras
  • Great display
  • Long battery life
  • Unbeatable software support

The Apple iPhone 13 Pro is undoubtedly the fastest phone of this year with its A15 Bionic chip. Along with the fast processor, Apple also brings an upgraded OLED panel to the iPhone 13 Pro with fantastic colors and contrast, as well as support for smoother scrolling thanks to the ProMotion technology that upgrades the refresh rate to 120Hz. The iPhone 13 Pro also gets incredible new camera features, including much larger sensors that capture more light than before, along with remarkably natural colors. Besides fascinating wide and ultrawide images, our iPhone 13 Pro review also highlights the great macro capabilities of the smartphone. In addition to great cameras, the smaller display than the iPhone 13 Pro Max, although equally bright and vivid, allows for much better battery life.

Then again, iOS is unbeatable when it comes to generational upgrades. So, if you plan to continue using the same phone for the next five years, Apple should have you covered with consistent software updates. Down to just $899, the iPhone 13 Pro is not only one of the most feature-rich phones, but an incredible value for anyone who is already familiar with the Apple ecosystem.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 — $1,600, was $1,800

Why buy:

  • Highly durable foldable screen
  • S Pen support
  • Multiple cameras, including an under-display selfie camera
  • Up to 512GB of inbuilt storage

Since its first generation, the Samsung Galaxy Fold has been a pinnacle of technology. With its third generation, the Galaxy Z Fold series has reached new heights with features such as a foldable glass-reinforced display, a completely concealed under-display selfie camera, and S Pen support. All these features combined make the Galaxy Z Fold 3 the ultimate productivity device. Besides all the amazing display tech, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 runs on Snapdragon 888 in the US, making it a great performance-oriented phone. There’s up to 512GB on offer along. Lastly, it has a great set of cameras, especially for selfie enthusiasts who can choose among the under-display camera under the flexible screen, the selfie camera on the cover screen, and the rear cameras. With a $200 discount, which brings the price of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 down to $1600, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 should attract more pro-users and enthusiasts who want to dabble with cutting-edge technology.

Along with the discount, Samsung is also offering a free pair of Galaxy Buds 2 worth $150.

My favorite iPhone MagSafe in-car holders are Cyber Monday bargains
Belkin BoostCharge Magnetic Wireless Car Charger seen from the side attached to an air vent.

I have always had a problem finding the right in-car holder for my iPhone 14 Pro, not just because the choice of products is so huge but also because I have specific parameters they must meet. I’ve recently found two that work really well for me: the Belkin BoostCharge Magnetic Wireless Car Charger and the Mous MagSafe Suction Mount.

They’re both available at bargain prices for Cyber Monday deals, with the Belkin model priced at $36 and the Mous case at $28, so if you’ve encountered the same problems as I have in the past, these could be for you. If you need a new iPhone too, we've got the best Cyber Monday iPhone deals here.
Not the usual rubbish
So many in-car phone holders are poorly made, ugly, and “universal,” meaning they never look good or always work properly once installed in your car. Many are attached in a way that threatens to damage your car, or aren’t sturdy enough to actually hold on to the phone. I use my iPhone 14 Pro in my cars, and need the holder to be strong enough to cope with hard, sporty suspension, and not spoil the look of my dashboard or car interior when they’re not in use. If it attaches to the air vent, I don’t want to worry about it breaking the vent in the process. If it’s on the windscreen, I don’t want it to get in the way.

Apple AirTag -- $28

If you've got someone in your life who is always misplacing their stuff, then the Apple AirTag is a worthy stocking stuffer. It's a simple item tracker that lets you easily locate things, and it's arguably the best item tracker on the market thanks to the huge Find My Stuff network that Apple has created (the iPhone is the most popular smartphone in the U.S., after all). We found the AirTag to be easy to use and the tracking to be quite precise as well, and at this price, you can buy a few, even if they're only for yourself.

Cyber Monday is your last chance to get an iPhone for $99
The front of the iPhone SE (2020).

It's a deal that keeps getting better and better as time passes. You can get an iPhone SE (2020 edition) that is locked to Straight Talk, one of America's best prepaid phone plans, for only $99 at Walmart. That's $50 off of the standard price of the locked phone at $149 and way lower than you'll be able to get an unlocked iPhone SE for, but you need to hurry if you want to avail yourself of it because similar offers are already sold out. Thanks to being part of Cyber Monday phone deals, this is the lowest price yet on this particular phone, but today's your last chance to take advantage of it. There's no other major shopping event remaining this year, so you should buy the iPhone SE now to get it in time for the holidays.
