Google Pixel 6A Sees First Price Drop to $399, Save $50 Today

Snag this deal on the device CNET's Lisa Eadicicco called the best Android phone under $500.

Front and back zoomed views of the Google Pixel 6A phone.

Google's budget-friendly Pixel 6A just hit the market July 28, but you can save some cash when you buy the unlocked 5G Android smartphone at Amazon. Just clip the on-page coupon and save $38, bringing the price to $399. (That's a $50 savings over Best Buy.)

Sporting a 6.1-inch OLED display, Titan M2 chip, Google Tensor processor, Android 12 software, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, this budget phone certainly delivers a lot of bang for the buck. And this phone will be among the first to get the upcoming Android 13 update.

The 12.2-megapixel camera may be a step down from the camera on the Pixel 6. But it's still a pretty great camera for the price, and it even comes equipped with tools like 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 $399, this is definitely a solid phone worth checking out.
