We have a lot of Google Pixel fans here at Wirecutter—and today you can get a Pixel for about as cheap as you ever could. (Deputy editor Annemarie Conte told us that she’s a little sad she got hers last Cyber Week, when the deal was hardly worth grabbing since the phone was brand-new at the time.) In our tests to determine the best Android phones over the years, we’ve consistently recommended Pixel phones for their outstanding cameras, seamless software, and quality builds. Our current top pick, the Google Pixel 6, represents everything that has set the Pixel line apart.
The Pixel 6 has the second-best camera we’ve ever tested (behind only that of our upgrade pick, the Pixel 6 Pro), a top-notch OLED screen, and Google’s new Tensor processor, a custom chip that’s as fast as any Android processor and also includes better support for machine learning, making features like Google Assistant and live translations that much more reliable. And as our guide notes, “Android 12 on the Pixel 6 reaches almost iOS levels of polish, and it’ll receive security updates through late 2026, a year longer than even Samsung promises. You can find phones with longer battery life or more camera lenses, but they can’t approach the Pixel 6’s value.”

For Prime Day, the Google Pixel 6 is $100 off, and if you’re looking for something even more powerful, our upgrade pick—its sibling, the Google Pixel 6 Pro—is an even better deal, at $200 off. In fact, that’s the best deal we’ve ever seen on the Pro.

The Pixel 6 Pro has a larger screen (6.7 inches versus the Pixel 6’s 6.4), a faster refresh rate for even smoother image transitions, and a better zoom lens on the back that makes it the absolute best camera we’ve ever tested on an Android phone.
As our guide observes: “The Pixel 6 Pro has three camera sensors on the back instead of two: It has the same 50-megapixel primary camera and 12-megapixel ultrawide camera as on the Pixel 6 but adds a 48-megapixel 4x ‘periscope’ zoom lens to capture more-distant subjects.” That zoom “combines with Google’s excellent image processing to produce great results,” our guide notes. “Even if you need to zoom a little past 4x, the Pixel 6 Pro retains detail in the processed image surprisingly well.”
When Google announced the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro last fall, our first impression was that most people wouldn’t need them: They were great, for sure, but probably more phone than you needed for such a steep price. Now that they’re $100 and $200 off for Prime Day? It’s an excellent time to upgrade.

The Amazon Echo Show 8 (2nd Gen) and Google Nest Hub Max are the best smart displays. They have big screens for video chat, TV, or recipes, and great speakers, too.
