The best day to show your better half how much you care for them is upon us all, but there’s no need to race against the clock and scour the internet for the top Valentine’s Day 2023 deals on devices as diverse as smartphones , tablets, smartwatches, and true wireless earbuds themselves. That’s where we come in, doing said back-breaking work day in and day out year-round and compiling weekly lists made up of the absolute best mobile tech bargains available as the weekend kicks off. If you thought our previous two such lists were long and spectacular, wait until you see what we could harvest this week. Top three deals you can get this Valentine’s Day Google’s best phones at their best prices ever
If you don’t mind choosing the carrier you intend to use your brand new Pixel 7 or 7 Pro high-ender on the bat, the stock Android powerhouse can be yours at a lower price than ever… with no other strings or special requirements.
That goes for both 128 and 256GB storage configurations of both Google’s compact and jumbo-sized mobile beasts released just a few months ago, and despite the occasional bug and software imperfection, the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro is undeniably one of the best Android phones you can buy for Valentine’s Day… at these deeply discounted prices. An affordable OnePlus 11 with a presentation sweetener on top
How low can a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 flagship go? How about $700… with a $100 Amazon or Best Buy gift card included at no extra cost? Or how about $275 (!!!) … with the right trade-in at the official OnePlus US e-store?
That’s a lot less than what a number of OnePlus 11 competitors for the title of overall best phone in the world in 2023 currently command, and this bad boy packs a big battery with lightning-fast charging, as well as plenty of memory (in both 128 and 256 GB storage variants), great cameras and an amazing screen in addition to the aforementioned state-of-the-art Qualcomm SoC. What’s not to love? An absolutely MASSIVE Apple Watch Series 7 discount No, this is no longer the world’s best smartwatch (and presumably not the world’s best-selling smartwatch either). But a $340 discount on a super-premium stainless steel model with built-in cellular connectivity will likely have many of you asking yourself, “Apple Watch Series 8 who?” suddenly. And no, the Apple Watch Series 7 isn’t quite as feature-packed as its successor to the best-selling global smartwatch crown, but the differences between the two Apple-made wearable powerhouses are marginal at best and extremely easy to spot in the right circumstances. to ignore. Like This Crazy New Walmart Deal…Other Outstanding Smartphone Deals Available This Week Can’t afford the hot new OnePlus 11, even at its undeniably great introductory price and with an undeniably cool pre-order freebie included? The slightly more humble OnePlus 10T is right there at Best Buy and Amazon, hitting its lowest price ever (without carrier activation beforehand) in a 128GB storage variant that also packs a big battery, a silky-smooth 120Hz screen, a… .. decent rear camera unit, and the most impressive, insanely fast charging capabilities. Can’t even afford the OnePlus 10T at its sweet new discount? Don’t worry, Amazon and Best Buy also have you covered with great deals on the mid-range Pixel 6a and Motorola Edge (2022). Both phones come with unlocked 5G support for all major US carriers, vying for the title of the best budget phone available today with great cameras and great software support (as far as the Pixel is concerned) and a gorgeous display and plenty of storage (when talking about the Motorola). Tough choice, huh? The Biggest Tablet Bargains Out There There are many reasons why Apple continues to so comfortably lead the global tablet market these days, but you probably wouldn’t think affordability is one of them. However, with great product diversity, deep discounts will often come from retailers like Amazon and Best Buy. That’s currently the case for not one and not two, but three of the best iPads out there, all of which are on sale at some of their lowest prices ever in every single storage configuration, connectivity variant, and color option. By no means unprecedented, these iPad (2021), iPad (2022), and iPad mini (2021) deals are likely to remain unbeaten for the foreseeable future. More smartwatch deals for your shopping pleasure Are you reluctant to compromise on the “outdated” Apple Watch Series 7 or just don’t necessarily like that fancy stainless steel/Milanese Loop style watch that’s heavily discounted right now? for sale? The latest and greatest Apple Watch Series 8 has been marked down (much less) in many more versions and styles, and while it might not seem like much at first glance, those $70 price cuts are historic accomplishments for this bad boy. Whether you’re a die-hard Google fan or just an everyday Android user curious to check out the search giant’s first in-house smartwatch effort, now’s the time to pull the trigger. The decidedly imperfect but arguably full of promise Pixel Watch is discounted to a rare and decent $50 in both Wi-Fi-only and cellular-enabled variants, which looks like the ideal Valentine’s Day gift for someone who digs round watches with a very unique personality (and lots of health tools in tow). True wireless earbuds deals for the ages
Look, we know all your friends are probably AirPods owners and many of them might not be able to shut up about how great Apple’s wildly popular earbuds are, but that’s exactly why you should consider an alternative from Samsung, Google, or even Apple self.
It’s often nice to go your own way and be independent and original, especially when said “original” products just so happen to be on sale at their lowest ever prices with active noise cancellation and many other super-premium features in tow. It’s definitely hard to choose between the Pixel Buds Pro and Beats Fit Pro right now, but whichever path you choose, you’ll almost certainly be delighted with your choice.
