Amazon’s Kindle range is heavily discounted right now, making it the ideal time to get started with an e-reader. Kindles have an E Ink screen that’s ideal for extended reading sessions, and you’ll only need to charge the devices once a week. Best of all, the Kindle Oasis has physical page turn buttons, water resistance, and Bluetooth connectivity as well as Audible integration. 

Samsung Galaxy Chromebook

Prime Day Chromebook deals don’t seem to be getting very much love from the internet this year, which is a shame since there are quite a few amazing deals happening right now. Case in point, this offer that slashes a whopping $420 off the price of the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook, a laptop that we once called “Samsung’s best Chromebook by a long-shot”. 

The Galaxy Chromebook boasts 8GB of RAM, an estimated 6-second boot time, and a convertible design with an integrated S Pen. It may not get all the buzz, but this laptop deal is sure to be one of the best you’ll see during Prime Day 2022.

Fossil acquired the Danish watch company Skagen back in 2012, and the two have been producing powerful and stylish wearables ever since. The sleek Falster Gen 6 is the latest Skagen watch to hit store shelves and boy, it doesn’t disappoint. 

Complete with an impressive Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, AMOLED display, and ultra-fast charging capabilities, the Gen 6 lands in that sweet spot between functionality and elegant design. If you’ve had your eye on the watch for a while, now might be the time to buy. Prime Day has brought the price of the Gen 6 down to just $196, which is another record low for the history books. 

ASUS TUF gaming laptop

Alright gamers, it’s the moment you’ve been waiting for: thanks to Prime Day, the ASUS TUF Gaming F15 Laptop has dropped back down to the sale price of $1,299.99. $200 off doesn’t seem like a lot when you’re picking up a $1,500 laptop, but it’s unlikely that the price will drop any more until Black Friday if you’re lucky, so now’s the time to buy if the F15 has been on your radar for a while.

To call this gaming laptop powerful would be an understatement. The TUF Gaming F15 features a vivid 15.6-inch Full HD display, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card, and an advanced venting system that makes overheating during intense gaming sessions a thing of the past.

Mobile gaming doesn’t just have to mean Angry Birds or Wordle. When you pair your smartphone with one of these great controllers, you’ve got a full-fledged portable console in your hands. While it doesn’t have Nintendo’s games (officially, anyway), a GameSir X3 (opens in new tab), GameSir X2 (opens in new tab), or Razer Kishi (opens in new tab) controller will make your phone look and feel almost identical to a Nintendo Switch while playing. There’s nothing like a quick session of Fortnite or Minecraft on the go, especially when you don’t have to deal with the frustration of touch controls!

While it’s not the biggest sale on Prime Day, getting a $25 Amazon gift card is certainly a nice perk for buying the headset on the big day. That’s extra cash to spend on some great Quest 2 accessories, which are always important to get since the Quest 2 is a bit basic out of the box.

The Quest 2 makes it easy to jump into VR at any time, anywhere thanks to its friendly and portable design. The Quest 2 is the console of the VR space, as you just need to put it on and you’re instantly transported to virtual worlds galore. Whether you’re playing motion-tracked hits like Beat Saber or The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners, chilling out to games like Tetris Effect: Connected, or joining up in a virtual concert or movie scene in Horizon Worlds (opens in new tab), there’s no shortage of things to do in VR.

And don’t forget to check out the other Quest 2 Prime Day deals (opens in new tab) that are going on, including tons of accessories and games on sale.

Amazon Fire Stick

There are tons of streaming devices out there nowadays, but Amazon’s Fire TV Sticks are still some of the best options if you’re looking to simplify your entertainment set-up. They were already pretty cheap, but Prime Day is taking things one step further by slashing at least 50% off the price of all of their Fire TV Sticks, including the 4K-compatible version and the particularly budget-friendly Fire TV Stick Lite.

If you’re unfamiliar with these devices, the concept is simple. Simply plug one of these flash drive-sized sticks into your TV’s HDMI port and you’ll instantly get access to all of your favorite streaming services and even free streaming TV channels such as Pluto TV and Tubi.

Motorola has been in the phone business since 1923, so it’s no surprise that they’ve mastered the craft. The company’s flagship device, the Motorola Edge, expertly straddles the line between specs and value, boasting a gorgeous OLED or AMOLED display (depending on the model year), incredible battery life, and powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon processors. Both the 2020 and 2021 versions of the device are seeing record low prices this Prime Day, with the 2020 model seeing one of the most jaw-dropping discounts yet: 57 percent. 

Writing on the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 with the S Pen for Fold

(Image credit: Nicholas Sutrich / Android Central)

Some sales will make you flip out, and these great Samsung foldables are sure to make you do just that. While you could almost always get a great deal on either of these phones from your local carrier, sometimes it’s just nicer to buy a phone unlocked outright. No contracts or long-term plans, just an awesome phone in your hand for less.

Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip 3 is nearly half off when you buy the Amazon Renewed model, giving this amazing flip phone a lower price than most flagship phones available. That’s a cutting-edge 6.7-inch 120Hz AMOLED display that folds in half, saving you pocket space and protecting itself from scary falls at the same time.

If that’s not up your alley, maybe the foldable tablet phone, the Galaxy Z Fold 3, is? The giant 7.6-inch display inside folds up into a much more manageable 6.2-inch display when you don’t need it. Nothing like having a device that can be used with one hand on the go without sacrificing the ability to go big when you need it! Either way you fold it, you’ll be saving hundreds of dollars this Prime Day.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic taking a BIA sensor reading

There’s little doubt that the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 (opens in new tab) family is the best Android smartwatch around. It launched almost a year ago with Google’s Wear OS 3 onboard – an exclusive OS update that other smartwatches are only just now starting to get – and the big Wear OS 3.5 update (opens in new tab) was just announced this morning.

What makes the Galaxy Watch 4 special? Samsung and Google partnered up to bring the most advanced smartwatch features to Android, including sleeker hardware than ever, a smoother software experience that’s packed with apps and features, and exclusive health sensors that most other smartwatches just don’t have.

Stick with Amazon’s Renewed listing if you want to save the most money, as it’s less than $130 for the world’s best Android smartwatch. Otherwise, you might want to consider the Watch 4 Classic if you enjoy that mechanically-rotating bezel. It’s a feature that’s been unique to Samsung smartwatches for ages now and is really just such a joy to use.

apple watch 7 product red

Sorry loyal Android fans, but let’s face it, we know some of you flirt with the dark side. So you might as well look your best while you’re doing it and pick up the gorgeous Product Red Apple Watch 7 for a whopping $120 off MSRP. You’ll also find the more budget-friendly Apple Watch SE on offer today, which is the better option if you’re not too fussed about having fewer health-tracking features. 

XGIMI Horizon Pro 4K projector review

The easiest way to switch to a big screen in your home is by picking up a laser projector. There have been a lot of interesting launches in this category over the last two years, and we’re partial to XGIMI’s offerings for their value, quality on offer, and integrated Android TV. 

The MoGo Pro is a brilliant portable projector with a built-in battery that lasts over two hours, and it has auto keystone correction, so you don’t have to manually adjust the frame. The Elfin is a slim projector that does a great job at Full HD (1080p), and if you want to switch to 4K, the Horizon Pro is a fantastic choice — one we recommend highly. 

If you want to go all-out, the Aura is a remarkable ultra short throw projector. It projects up to a 150-inch image at 4K, has HDR and Android TV, and a built-in subwoofer that’s more than adequate to fill a small room. 

Corsair Virtuoso RGB Wireless XT review

Now is a great time to buy a new gaming headset, with Corsair’s Virtuoso RGB staking its claim as one of the best overall options in this category. Logitech’s G Pro X is also a reliable alternative thanks to its versatility, all-day comfort, and sound quality. And if you want a wired option, the Kraken is an unmissable deal for under $40. 

Sony WH-1000XM4

There are a lot of headphone deals live right now, and if you want the best that this segment has to offer, you’ll want to look to Sony’s fantastic WH-1000XM4 and the Bose 700. These are two of the best headphones you can buy, and they’re both heavily discounted. The XM4 is quite the enticing deal, and it delivers a slightly better sound. 

If you’re looking for wireless earbuds, Samsung’s Galaxy Buds Pro is a standout option. It continues to deliver the best-sounding audio in this category, and has a ton of extras. Jabra’s Elite 85t and Elite 7 Pro are a good choice as well, and if you want something on a budget, the Liberty 2 Pro is still a fine choice. 

LG OLED C1 Series smart TV

If you’re looking to make the switch to an OLED TV, there are a few great options. Sony’s A80J is a stellar choice that has an outstanding OLED panel with a custom image engine, and the best part is that it’s under $1,000 for the first time. But if you want the absolute best, you’ll need to get the LG C1. It costs a little bit more, but it’s worth it for the picture quality. If you need a smaller TV, the 48-inch C1 is a good option for under $800. Similarly, if you want a larger OLED TV, the 65-inch B1 is a fantastic choice. 

Synology DiskStation DS920+

This is the best time to pick up a NAS server, and Synology has enticing discounts on several best-selling models. The DiskStation DS220j is a good starter NAS if you’re just getting started, and it is the ideal way to take a look at all the software features you can get in a NAS. 

The DiskStation DS220+ and DS920+ are catered to those looking to build a robust server at home for streaming 4K content over Plex. These two NAS servers have powerful hardware, dual Gigabit Ethernet connectivity, and a lot of software extras. If you have a lot of local media and want a centralized location to store it and at the same time back up photos and videos from your phones, the DiskStation DS220+ is what you should get.

Prime Day is the best time to get your hands on 3.5-inch hard drives for NAS servers, and there are a lot of exciting deals this time around. Western Digital’s Red Plus series is heavily discounted for the 8TB and 14TB variants, with these drives offering custom features designed for 24/7 reliability within a NAS server. 

The Red Pro takes things to the next level, and comes with a five-year warranty. With 18TB and 20TB options, just one of these drives should be adequate to store your media library. 

OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro

This is the best time to get your hands on a OnePlus phone. The OnePlus 9 has plenty to offer in 2022, and it is a downright steal at $499. You’re getting a gorgeous design, top-notch hardware, standout cameras, and 65W fast charging. 

And if you want the absolute best that OnePlus has to offer, the OnePlus 9 Pro is an outstanding deal at just $699. This is for the 12GB/256GB variant of the phone, and at $370 off, you really don’t want to miss out on this deal. 

Samsung Galaxy A53

The Galaxy A53 is one of our favorite budget phones and it can more than hold its own against phones that cost three times as much. It has a gorgeous 6.5-inch AMOLED screen that runs at 120Hz, a great set of cameras on the front and back and enough internal spec to handle plenty of demanding games on medium to high settings too.

Samsung Chromebook 4

Prime Day hasn’t even kicked off yet and you can already get this Samsung Chromebook 4 for just $122.77. Sure, it’s not the most sleek or feature-packed design we’ve ever seen — and those huge bezels are giving me a headache — but you’re getting a solid, extremely durable device with powerful Intel Celeron processors and up to 12.5 hours of battery life for less than 125 bucks. That’s worth celebrating. 

Samsung Galaxy Tab S8

Prime Day is fast approaching, but you don’t need to wait to save a ton of cash on the Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S8. Right now, the flagship tablet is selling for 18% off. That’s a generous price cut of over $125 and the cheapest the tablet has ever been. 

Fast and reliable, the Tab S8 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon processors and features a vivid 11-inch LCD screen, 128GB of storage, and a battery that’ll last all day long. Unlike most Prime Day deals, you can also receive these savings even if you aren’t a Prime member.  

Amazon Echo Buds on desk

Nothing beats a quality pair of wireless earbuds, especially when they’re selling at a hefty discount. Amazon’s 2nd Gen Echo Buds come with intelligent Active Noise Cancellation, up to 15 hours of battery life, and a comfortable fit. Prime Day is simply slashing $50 off the retail price before Prime Day hits, bringing the price down to just shy of 70 bucks. 

Samsung 55-inch QLED TV

If you’re looking for something a little more premium to take your home theater to the next level, don’t miss this early access Amazon Prime Day deal. At this very moment, you can save 25% on the 55-inch Class QLED 4K TV from Samsung, a discount that brings the price of the TV down to $897.99. While that’s not exactly cheap, the price of the smart TV has never dropped lower, so it’s definitely worth checking out if it works with your budget. 

The Samsung QLED Smart TV is capable of producing gorgeous 4K images and comes with unique features such as Object Tracking Sound for particularly immersive audio and intelligent Adaptive Picture technology that automatically adjusts the color based on what you’re watching. 

Amazon Fire TV Cube

Amazon has basically been leading the charge when it comes to the best streaming devices, so it’s no big surprise to see Fire TV Cube get some love this Prime Day. The Cube is the most powerful streaming device in the Fire lineup, capable of delivering 4K Ultra HD visuals, Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision audio, and hands-free entertainment thanks to Alexa. Right now, the Fire TV Cube is half off and definitely worth grabbing if you’re looking for an upgrade.   

Acer Aspire 5

We love a good laptop deal, particularly when it comes from an industry-leading giant like Acer. Ahead of Prime Day 2022, Amazon is slashing $100 of the price of the Acer Aspire 5, a popular device that boasts a generous 15.6-inch Full HD display, impressively fast 11th-gen Intel Core processors, and Alexa-compatibility for easy hands-free control. The price of this laptop has only gone this low once before, so don’t wait! 

Blink Outdoor Camera System

If you’re an Amazon Prime member planning to upgrade your home security system, look no further than this deal from Blink. For just $139.98, you’ll get the popular Blink Doorbell for your front door and three Blink Minis for the exterior of your home. That’s a whopping 50% discount, and it isn’t even Prime Day yet! Folks love Blink’s camera systems because they’re reliable, easy to set up, Alexa-compatible, and, as you can see, quite affordable. 

Insignia F Series Fire TV

If you’re looking to save the most amount of money possibly and still get a TV with a few bells and whistles then you can get a regular 24-inch HD smart TV from just $89 (47% off). Stretch that budget to $199 though and you can upgrade to a 43-inch 4K smart TV. If you’re looking more towards something fancier from the likes of LG or Samsung, stay tuned as we’re expecting some great Prime Day TV deals tomorrow – nothing this cheap though!

Fitbit Sense product render

Fancy a Fitbit, but also want the larger smartwatch experience where you can store some tunes and have a few more features? Then you better get a Galaxy Watch then right? Actually no, this is a superb alternative, and unlike the Galaxy watches, this beast has a battery that lasts around six days. As someone that has to charge their Galaxy Watch 4 every day this Fitbit pick is looking very tempting at its lowest price yet. 

Amazon New Echo Show

If you’re a fan of the Echo smart speakers, then you might enjoy the version with a screen too. The Show 5 has always been better proportionally priced than the larger models and today it’s basically in impulse-buy territory with a 59% saving. Better yet, pick up two and give one to a family member for super simple video calls! 

Google Pixel 6 Pro Back Hold

We’re big, BIG fans of the Pixel series here at Android Central and love the new design that gives these phones a unique identity if you’re looking for a change from the usual offerings from Samsung and OnePlus. That, and we’re obsessed with the excellent Magic Eraser feature of the camera software that allows you to remove unwanted objects from photos old and new. Both the regular and Pro models are on sale right now with massive discounts and, whisper it, you don’t have to be a Prime member to take advantage.

Ok, big surprise, the Echo Dot is on sale around Prime Day? Fair enough, but that’s as low as we’ve ever seen the latest 4th-gen model drop to. While we do miss the thinner puck design, there’s no denying the new spheres sound a lot better and a lot less muffled than the older models.  

Fitbit Charge 5

(Image credit: Fitbit)

The Fitbit Charge 5 is an excellent fitness tracker that does so much more than track your steps. Heart-rate monitoring is expected of course, but you’re also getting sleep tracking, built in GPS and more. That 7-day battery destroys the pitiful one-day charge you’d typically get from a Samsung/Apple smartwatch too. We’ve seen the price hover around $125 in the last few months, but this is an all-time low price and a full day before Prime Day. Don’t expect this to last long.
