If you're in the market for a new smartphone and want to save big, you'll want to poke around Amazon and other retailers this week. A range of devices, from impossibly cheap budget models like the Moto G6, to premium handsets with top tier cameras, like the Galaxy S10 and Pixel 3, can be had for less this Prime Day.
No matter what you're looking for in your next handset — whether it's a big screen, great battery life or you're simply eyeing the lowest price possible — there's a smartphone deal out there for you this week. Here are the best we've seen yet.
Samsung Galaxy S10 and S9 series
Samsung's latest flagship phones are sporting big discounts for Prime Day, and they're only a few months old. The 6.1-inch Galaxy S10, normally $899, is going for just $599 until the end of Prime Day on July 16. The more compact, 5.8-inch S10e can be had for $549, while the range-topping, 6.3-inch S10 Plus is down to $699. These savings range from $200 to $300 across the board, and cover factory unlocked models — meaning they can be used on any carrier.
The Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus can also be had for less this Prime Day. Even though Samsung's last-generation handsets are more than a year old at this point, they're still plenty powerful and pack tons of useful features, like headphone jacks and wireless charging. Amazon is currently taking $250 off the 5.8-inch S9's $599 asking price, knocking it down to $349 — an excellent deal on a still-excellent phone.

Google Pixel 3 and 3a series
Want to save $260 on one of Google's flagships? The Pixel 3 with 64 GB of storage, normally $799, is now just $539 for Prime Day. If you want a discount on the 128 GB variant of Google's 5.5-inch device, you'll have to spring for the Not Pink colorway. The larger Pixel 3 XL is going for $639, though right now to get that $260 off, you'll have to get the Clearly White version. All Pixels on sale for Prime Day come fully unlocked.
The Pixel 3a, Google's midrange option that packs the same great camera as the pricier Pixel 3, is also included in the Prime Day festivities. However, the offer only extends to the XL variant, and doesn't actually knock money off the cost of the phone. Rather, it adds an $100 Amazon gift card, which might come in handy for snagging a case or two.

Armed with wireless charging, a headphone jack, dual rear cameras including an ultrawide-angle lens, a microSD cart slot for expandable storage and even a Hi-Fi Quad DAC for excellent audio, the G8 ThinQ is like the Swiss army knife of smartphones. Given how sizable this discount is, it's definitely worth a look.
