Huawei’s P20 Pro may have stolen the show for its brilliant camera, but the Huawei Mate 10 Pro can match it with performance, design, and software — and the camera’s pretty good too. It initially cost $800 earlier this year, but it has been available for $550 on Amazon. Now, on Prime Day, you can snag it for $550, which is a great price for a phone of this caliber.

Best Essential Phone cases
Essential Phone Julian Chokkattu / Digital Trends

The Essential Phone, from the creator of Android, was one of the most beautiful phones of 2017. It’s made of ceramic and titanium, it has a simple-to-use and uncluttered Android operating system, and performance is speedy. The camera isn’t the strongest, but Essential has dropped the price of the phone to $250 for Prime Day, and it is absolutely a steal. If the $250 price isn’t showing up for you, don’t despair. There’s a way to still grab it for the low price even if it is out of stock — check out our guide on how to do it. While you’re here, you can also read our full Essential Phone review.
