Google's Pixel 6a just launched on July 28, 2022, and it's now seeing its first discount. At Amazon, and after selecting an on-page coupon, you can save $50 and score the 6a for $399

In our review of the Pixel 6a, we called it the best Pixel yet. For about half the price of the Pixel 6 ($599), it delivers a more compact build with a similar design language, and the same Tensor processor powers it for a swift experience. The latter is similar to the iPhone SE ($429), which uses the same processor as the iPhone 13.

You'll be greeted with a clean version of Android 12 out of the box and find some exclusive Pixel features. Things like a terrific Recorder app that can transcribe in real-time, the ability to have the Google Assistant wait on hold, and some handy photo editing capabilities. It's also the most compact, modern Pixel with a 6.1-inch display.
