Amazon lowers smartphone prices during its Prime Day 2022

Prime Day in October 2022 is an opportunity to do (very) good business on Amazon. We gather here the best promotions of the event on smartphones of the moment.

Do you need a new smartphone? The Xiaomi Pocos are the protagonists of this Prime Day 2022: the opportunity to afford a high-performance phone at a low price. Samsung is also well represented, with a basic model and a folding model. If you are an Amazon Prime customer, now is the time to do it… In addition, other models will be added during the event, let’s say that this is just a sample of what is to come.

To learn more about the most attractive models of the moment, be sure to take a look at our selection of the best smartphones of 2022.

Google Pixel 6a: the best in photos

The Google Pixel 6a stands out in the field of photography where it will undoubtedly be the king. It has a first sensor of 12.2 megapixels and a second, an ultra wide angle of 12 megapixels. Thanks to the algorithms, Portrait mode is, in particular, a big hit, day and night. We’re also entitled to the same handy features as the flagships, like erasing background elements or even blurring moving faces.

For the rest of the data sheet, we find a 6.1-inch OLED screen, with infinite contrasts, therefore, with Full HD + definition, but with a refresh rate locked at 60 Hz. The performance is then provided by Google Tension. The only defect is its autonomy, too tight to endure the day with intensive use, especially since its “fast” charger is only 18 W.

The Google Pixel 6a is available from its launch for 459 euros, but for Prime Day the phone is offered in a package with the Pixel Buds A (valued at 99 euros) for only 399 euros on Amazon.

Realme GT Neo 3: the quintessential flagship killer

The Realme GT Neo 3 offers a large 6.7-inch panel in FHD +, with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, perfect for viewing content or playing games. And to play with precision, you will be in the best graphic conditions thanks to its MediaTek Dimensity 8100 chip, which offers great performance. Plus, it holds a charge with its 5,000mAh battery and recharges super fast with its 80W power supply.

On the photography side, there’s a 50-megapixel wide-angle with OIS, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide, and a 2-megapixel macro lens. The main sensor is very effective in many situations. Portrait mode is pretty well done and night mode is reliable in most cases. However, for this price, if photo is your number one criteria, you might be able to find something better elsewhere.

With a launch price of 599.99 euros, the Realme GT Neo 3 (8 + 256 GB and with 80W charging) sees its price drop to 479.99 euros on Amazon.

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE: the compromise of choice

The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE offers excellent image quality with its 6.4-inch AMOLED screen that shows infinite contrasts as well as Full HD+ definition, without forgetting its 120 Hz refresh rate. Above all, it is powerful thanks to its Snapdragon 888 and easily lasts through the day with its 4,500 mAh battery, compatible with 25W fast charging.

For the photographic part, the smartphone is made up of a 12-megapixel main sensor, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide angle sensor and an 8-megapixel x3 optical zoom, which offers great versatility and successful daytime shots. Once night falls, the results can only be used on the main sensor.

The 8+256 GB version of the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE went on sale at a price of 829 euros, but on the occasion of Prime Day we found it for only 589 euros on Amazon.

Honor 50: good value for money

The Honor 50 is a mid-range smartphone with a very balanced technical sheet for the price at which it is offered today. Indeed, this Android phone offers some premium features, such as its OLED Full HD screen at 120 Hz or its camera with a 108 Mpx sensor.

For Prime Day, it is currently seeing its price decrease by more than 260 euros, or a reduction of 47% on its original price. Therefore, we can say that it is excellent value for money.

Instead of €549 at launch, but currently listed at a prohibited price of €349, the 5G-capable Honor 50 is now available on sale for just €299 on Amazon.

Galaxy Z Flip 3: the (most) affordable foldable

Samsung is one of the only manufacturers to market its foldable smartphones in Europe. The Galaxy Z Flip 3, released in 2021, still has a good case if you want to take the plunge. It thus has a large 6.7-inch AMOLED screen, with HD+ resolution and a 120 Hz refresh rate. It also offers an original 22:9 format. Its 1.9-inch external screen allows you to display a series of notifications, but also have comments for selfies.

If Samsung has advanced a lot compared to previous versions, autonomy and recharging are the black point of the Z Flip 3. Therefore, it will barely last a day. On the photo side, there are two 12-megapixel sensors on the back, namely a main sensor and an ultra-wide sensor.

When it was launched in August 2021, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 (in its version with 128 GB of storage) was sold at 1,059 euros. During Amazon Prime Day, you can buy it for only 699 euros on the Amazon site, participating in the Samsung ODR that runs until November 15, 2022.

Samsung Galaxy M23: entry level from Samsung

Although it is more of an entry-level phone, the Samsung M23 is compatible with 5G. It also benefits from a Snapdragon 750G chip, along with 4GB of RAM.

The Galaxy M23 also offers a large 6.6-inch screen, which will suit those who want to watch video content comfortably. It even benefits from a 120 Hz refresh rate, which is quite rare in this price range. Samsung complies, the panel is of quality. In the photo there is a triple photographic module: a 50 Mpx wide angle, an 8 Mpx ultra wide angle and a 2 Mpx macro sensor.

On this Prime Day, it drops to just €189 instead of €299, a bargain not to be missed for small budgets.

Xiaomi Poco F4 5G: a powerful and durable model

The Poco F4 is a large smartphone, with a 6.67-inch diagonal screen. The latter is based on OLED technology and has Full HD+ definition, as well as a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz, perfect for gaming. It will be able to remain efficient in most tasks, without heating up, thanks to its Snapdragon 870. As for autonomy, it is excellent, with two days of use. You also benefit from fast charging at 67 W, a very good point.

With a starting price of 449.90 euros, the Xiaomi Poco F4 in its 8+256 GB version is already on sale at 399.90 euros on the Amazon site.

Xiaomi Poco F4 GT 5G: the best to play

Power, the Poco F4 GT 5G has it in abundance. In fact, it is equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip, which has been found in many high-end smartphones since the beginning of the year. This allows you to play all the latest mobile games. With the large 6.67-inch AMOLED screen, this model is very comfortable to play. It also has two retractable triggers on the rim, handy for gaming.

As for autonomy, Xiaomi has equipped its Poco with a 4,700 mAh battery: you can last more than a day away from a plug. And good news in terms of recharging, since it is ultra-fast, at 120W, which allows you to recover 100% in less than half an hour.

For Prime Day, the Xiaomi Poco F4 GT 5G in its version with 256 GB of storage and 12 GB of RAM is offered at only 599 euros, 100 euros less than its usual price.

Xiaomi Poco X4 Pro 5G: the balanced Poco

The Xiaomi Poco X4 Pro 5G has excellent value for money. On the screen side, we are entitled to a beautiful 6.67-inch AMOLED panel (FHD+ resolution of 2,400 x 1,080 pixels), with a good maximum brightness. It also has a refresh rate of 120 Hz. In the animation, there is a chip from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 695.

In terms of photography, the device does well thanks to its 108 Mpx main sensor, but also its 8 Mpx ultra wide angle as well as a 2 Mpx macro sensor. As for the front sensor, it continues to rise to 16 Mpx. Note also that this smartphone has a connector, which is becoming more and more rare. Lastly, everything is powered by a 5,000mAh battery, which can be recharged at 67W.

Xiaomi Poco X4 GT: affordable gaming

The Poco X4 GT is built for performance and gaming, just like the F4 GT. It thus has a SoC Dimensity 8100 (5G), in addition to a 6.6-inch LCD screen that goes up to 144 Hz. It manages to run the latest games, without excessive heating.

Its three photosensors (64 megapixel wide angle, 8 megapixel ultra wide angle and 2 megapixel macro lens) allow it to offer a satisfactory score, at least during the day. It also has a 3.5mm jack and can accommodate two SIM cards. Thanks to its 5,080 mAh battery, it can last about 15 hours, and can be fully charged in less than 50 minutes.

Currently, the Xiaomi Poco X4 GT in 256 GB goes to 369 euros instead of 429 euros.
