Smartphone and Tablet Deals

At Amazon, the savings come in the form of a $300 promotional credit. Use code PBUCW5LPJM4M to get it. At Best Buy, the savings are already taken off the full price. This deal is a match of one we saw last fall. The Z Fold5 (7/10, WIRED Recommends) is a sleek smartphone that opens up like a book. The displays are bright and immersive, the cameras are great, and it has one of the best update policies you can get on an Android. Once your new purchase arrives, be sure to check our Best Apps for Folding Phones guide.

Last fall, we saw the Galaxy Tab 9 drop down to this same price. Even outside of Amazon’s lower cost, the $800 deal at other retailers is still decent. We think the Galaxy Tab S9 Series (7/10, WIRED Review) offers some of the best Android tablets around, but they’re usually too expensive. The hardware is excellent, from the screens to the included S Pen stylus, and Samsung’s security updates and Android OS upgrades will keep the gadget up to date for years.

The S9+ is a solid middle-of-the-road option for those who will use their tablet for both work and play. The 12.4-inch AMOLED screen has enough real estate for most tasks, and this model of the S9 series comes with 12 gigabytes of RAM compared to the basic S9’s 8 gigs.

This fancy-schmancy S9 has the largest display of the three in the lineup, coming in at a whopping 14.6 inches. It shares many features with its siblings, including a 120-Hz refresh rate and Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset. It does have an extra front camera, but it doesn’t have support for 5G connectivity. Read more about it and get additional recommendations in our Best Tablets roundup.

Smartwatch and Headphone Deals

The Samsung Galaxy Buds2 (9/10, WIRED Recommends) are some of best headphones for Samsung users. They’re comfortable and have active noise canceling, plus five hours of battery life per charge. The IPX2 water resistance means you can wear them during workouts. And the colors are cute!

This price is $10 more than what we saw on Cyber Monday in 2023. We reviewed the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic (7/10, WIRED Recommends), which has a mechanical rotating bezel you can use to interact with the operating system; The standard Watch 6 doesn’t have the bezel feature. Still, this Wear OS 4 smartwatch matches the Apple Watch in its health and fitness features, plus it’s round! It only works with Android phones, and the electrocardiogram and irregular heart rate notifications only work when the watch is paired with a Samsung phone. Read more about it in our Best Smartwatches guide.

Gaming and TV Deals

We’ve seen this TV drop down to $998 during Prime Day before. Sometimes TVs can be a bit of an eyesore, but The Frame from Samsung looks like a piece of art when not in use. It’ll flip through hundreds of paintings and photographs, and the transparent cable is unobtrusive too. Our list of the best TVs has additional recommendations.

This TV was on sale for $100 more last year, and today’s price is the lowest we’ve tracked. The QN800C (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is a fantastic 8K TV overall, notwithstanding its eye-popping price tag. There’s still not a ton of content available for 8K TVs, outside of YouTube videos. But if you wanna be future-proof and you’ve got cash to burn, this might be a purchase worth making.

This price matches what we saw during Cyber Monday last year. This little projector offers up to 100 inches of screen real estate, and it also features a built-in smart interface and gaming hub. It’s compatible with specific USB-C power banks for extra portability.
