Amazon’s Big Spring Sale might not be considered Spring Prime Day, but it brought a number of good discounts on the new Samsung Galaxy S24 smartphones. Maybe you’ve been waiting for a solid deal on the top-of-the-line Galaxy S24 Ultra, which typically starts at $1,300 for the 256GB storage version. This option is currently available $150 off $1150. The Galaxy S24+ also on sale for $850 right now as part of Amazon’s Spring Sale.

The Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra has dropped to its lowest price ever at $1,150.

We gave the Galaxy S24 Ultra a score of 89 in our review. We found it to be very expensive (this sale helps mitigate that!) and the design and lack of Qi 2 support were downsides. However, we appreciated the camera upgrades and felt that the S24 Ultra delivers great performance and offers great battery life. There was often 50 percent charge remaining after 24 hours of regular use, thanks to the large battery and power efficiency improvements provided by the new processor.

Another important thing that powers the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset is the device’s array of AI Generation (GAI) features, the big selling point of the Galaxy lineup this year as Samsung tries to compete with the Google Pixel devices on that front . A translator mode can translate languages ​​during conversations, while the Chat Assist tool can check the grammar, spelling and tone of your messages before you send them. There are also AI-based image editing and search options. While the AI ​​tools more or less work as expected, we think they’re not as polished as Google’s versions. Regardless, the Galaxy S24 Ultra is our pick for the best premium Android phone.

The Galaxy S24+ also has a $150 discount. This also marks a record low for a 256GB version – the phone currently costs $850. Like its smaller sibling, the S24, the S24+ earned a score of 87 in our review. We appreciated the battery life and (for the most part) the GAI tools, although we felt that low-light performance was somewhat lacking.

The prices of several others Samsung products dropped as part of Amazon’s Spring Sale. Those who prefer foldable devices may be more interested in the Galaxy Z Flip 5. Again, that’s $150 off at $850 for 256GB of storage. However, that’s $50 more than the lowest price we’ve seen for the phone so far.
