Amazon’s Big Spring Sale officially kicks off this Wednesday, but as with all such sales, a number of deals have started early, including on Google’s latest Pixel smartphones. 128 GB capacity Pixel 8 Pro is 25 percent off, which knocks $250 off the list price and brings the phone to $749. That beats the lowest price we saw on Black Friday last November. Higher-capacity models also see discounts, with all three colors Amazon offers included. If you prefer to buy direct, you can get same discount from the Google online store, which also has a Google-exclusive mint color.


Google’s latest generation of Pixel phones are 25 percent off as an early bird deal ahead of Amazon’s big spring sale.

A similar discount applies to 128GB Pixel 8 which is 29% off and down to $499 instead of $699 on both Amazon and Google. Again, this is the lowest price we’ve tracked, and discounts apply to larger-capacity models. We called the Google Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro the best Android smartphones on the market thanks to their fast chips, brighter screens and improved cameras. Plus, the suite of AI-enabled tools goes beyond gimmicks and actually helps you with things like search, taking better photos, and a more powerful Google Assistant. Perhaps the best part is Google’s commitment to seven years of software support, which means these phones can stay in your pocket much longer than the average cell phone.

As for the difference between the two phones, the Pro model has a larger 6.7-inch screen compared to the Pixel 8’s 6.2 inches. The Pro also has a screen with 400-nits higher peak brightness, more RAM, and a third telephoto camera. Both have the same chip and many of the same AI tools.

Those looking for an even tighter deal should check out Google Pixel 7awhich is also at a record low price of $374 on both Amazon and Google. Not only did we name it the best mid-range Android phone in our smartphone guide, but it’s also a top pick in our budget Android guide.
