Year after year, Google's Pixel A series phones have continually ranked among the best cheap phones we've tested. In our Google Pixel 8a hands-on review, we said the new phone offers incredible value without any increased costs over its predecessor. 

All of the Pixel 8a AI features make it a compelling phone that will help save you time, like how Magic Editor takes care of all the heavy lifting in photo-editing. Other Pixel 8a upgrades include a 120Hz display refresh rate, larger battery, faster Tensor G3 chip, and more. It's also worth noting that Google is giving the Pixel 8a the same seven years of major Android and security updates as it does with its flagship models in the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro

So if you're on a tight budget, but still want a capable phone that punches well above its weight — this deal is for you.
