Amazon knocks 29% off the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL phones for Prime Day

While Apple has its loyal enthusiasts, Android continues to rule the smartphone market, with more and more companies releasing their own lineup of budget, midrange, and flagship devices. American software giant Google has also joined the mobile scene by rolling out its excellent Pixel devices. If you’re planning to get your hands on a Pixel phone, now’s the best time as Amazon is offering the

Pixel 3

and

Pixel 3 XL

(unlocked versions) on sale just for Prime Day. And if you’re in the market for a Google Pixel 3XL with 64GB we found a deal for you.

Both phones are factory unlocked which means you will not be tied to any carrier. This is a plus point for frequent international travelers since they can simply secure a prepaid SIM card and avoid excessive roaming charges. An unlocked phone also costs less than the accumulated monthly lease payments with your chosen provider.

The Google Pixel 3 may not amaze you in terms of its design, but it’s a smartphone packed with performance. Google gave it a 2,260p x 1,080p resolution that compares well to the iPhone XS. Whether you’re reading your eBook, gaming in the dark, or watching a movie, its display looks great and adjusts automatically to suit the environment. It’s powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 processor paired with a 4GB RAM that fires up any app or game without a hint of lag.

What’s exciting about this model is the incorporation of Google Assistant. The A.I. smarts are very useful as they’re integrated with the phone’s camera, calling function, music player, messages, calendar, and much more. Its camera is also very solid, thanks to newly added features such as Top Shot, Super Res Zoom, and Night Sight. Other impressive camera functions are the Portrait Mode and the wide-angle lens.

You can order the 128GB version of the Pixel 3 for only $639 instead of its usual $899 price tag during this Prime Day sale, saving you $160.

Google Pixel 3 XL review
Julian Chokkatu/Digital Trends

If a bigger screen is what you’re after, you may want to try the Google Pixel 3 XL. It has a larger screen of 6.3 inches compared to the Pixel 3, and is designed with a massive notch on the top-front. You can access the notification shade by swiping up or down, which eases usability on its large screen. Google also beefed up this phone with a sharp 2,290p x 1,440p resolution and rich dual front-facing speakers, making video and movie watching a delight.

The Pixel 3 XL is run by the same chipset as the Pixel 3 – which means that apps open quickly, and games perform smoothly. Other noteworthy features are the solid software, fantastic camera, and the aforementioned integration with Google Assistant, which overall make using the Pixel 3 XL  fun and convenient. Battery life is probably its weakest link, but the fast wireless charging feature goes a long way to make up for that.

The 64GB version of the Pixel 3 XL normally rings it at $899, but for Prime Day you can have it for just $639.

Prime Day in October: Get a pack of 12 AA rechargeable batteries for $18
AmazonsBasics AA batteries being inserted into a game controller.

As much as we try to avoid it, sometimes, you just have to buy those pesky household items you never want to spend money on. But if you're lucky, you can take advantage of some excellent discounts, like Prime Day deals, which provide the perfect opportunity to stock up. Amazon's Prime Day Big Deal Days event makes those discounts even sweeter. While we are close to an AA-battery-free world, it hasn't happened yet. Fortunately, we have a rechargeable option to spend less money and throw fewer batteries into landfills. Right now, you can get a 12-pack of Amazon Basic rechargeable batteries for just $18, thanks to a 10% discount on Prime Day. This deal will likely only stick around during the sale, so if your battery drawer is running low, grab them as soon as possible.

 
Why you should buy Amazon AA rechargeable batteries during the Prime Day Big Deal Days sale
Of course, there's not much I can tell you about batteries that you don't already know. These Amazon Basics brand AAs have a 2,000 mAh storage capacity. That's lower than a traditional alkaline battery, but it has enough power to last for a good three to four hours of continuous use. Then the rechargeable factor comes in. You can recharge these batteries about 1,000 times before they die out. Think about how many batteries it will save you -- and how much money. Let's do some quick napkin math. 1,000 recharges... alkaline batteries cost around one-third the price of a rechargeable... factor in the difference in storage capacity... It could be as much as $300 in savings over a single battery's lifetime. A lot less waste too.
