Quick guide to the top deals on sought after phones available at bargain prices today in the USA 

The Samsung Galaxy S23 series is still new and pricey.

Still Samsung offers the best software support out of any Android maker, so you’re not missing that much by getting an older model.

The vanilla Samsung Galaxy S22 is down in price to $635 for a 256GB unit, whereas the S23 is $860 for the same memory amount. 

The Galaxy S22+ goes for $800 and while that is $200 cheaper than the S23+, however, it’s also only $100 less than the Galaxy S22 Ultra.

If you’re not after the petite dimensions of the S22, we’d recommend the Ultra for its more capable display and cameras (even compared to the S23+).

Some find the minimalist aesthetic of the Google Pixel Watch appealing. 

If you’re one of them, you can pick up an LTE-enabled model for $333 – that’s less than you would pay for a Wi-Fi only watch from the Google Store.

Next up, some Apple accessories.

The AirPods Pro (2nd generation) are probably the best TWS buds you can use with an iPhone due to Apple’s unmatched product integration (they are genuinely good buds too).

If $200 is too pricey for you, check out the AirPods (2nd gen), which cost half as much. There are 3rd gen models available at $170, but at that price you’d be better off with the Pros.

A pack of four AirTags goes for $80, that’s $20 per tag. These rely on Ultra Wide Band (UWB) for wireless connectivity to tap into Apple’s growing network of devices that can help you find your lost keys or backpack.

We’ll wrap things up with this tough flip phone – the Cat S22 Flip.

It’s rated IP68 (dust tight and water resistant) and lives up to the MIL-SPEC-810H standard. It can survive 6ft drops onto steel and dive up to 5ft underwater for 35 minutes.

And here’s the interesting bit – it runs Android 11 Go edition. This gives you access to a lot of apps for messaging (there’s a push-to-talk button on the side), music streaming and so on. Keep in mind that it only works on T-Mobile and virtual carriers that use its network.
