Amazon, Samsung ($900), Target ($200 Gift Card)
Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip3 (7/10, WIRED Recommends) is the first foldable phone we’re comfortable recommending—especially for under $1,000. On the outside, the third-generation Flip is compact enough to slip into even the smallest of pockets and comes in fun, stylish colors. It has all the high-end features you’d expect too, like a 120-Hz screen refresh rate, 5G support, an IPX8 water-resistance rating, and speedy performance. The battery is sadly so-so. This deal includes a set of Samsung’s newest Galaxy Buds2 earbuds (9/10, WIRED Recommends).
Nokia, B&H ($521)
The Nokia XR20 (7/10, WIRED Recommends) is our favorite rugged phone. Our reviewer dropped it three times onto the pavement and its glass screen did not get scuffed up. The tough polymer composite back adds to its durability, the phone’s grippy texture keeps it in your paws, and there’s a spot to attach a wrist strap. You also get wireless charging, NFC for contactless payments, a headphone jack, IP68 water resistance, and three years of OS upgrades (with four years of security updates).
The OnePlus 9 Pro (9/10, WIRED Recommends) received an honorable mention on our roundup of Best Android Phones. It’s a good phone with a heavily improved camera system (for photo and video), fast performance, a bright display, and solid battery life, but it’s also the most expensive phone OnePlus has ever offered. This week’s sale price makes it a much better deal. If you want to save even more, the phone’s younger sibling, the OnePlus 9, is $599 ($130 off).

We thought the Pixel 6 (9/10, WIRED Recommends) was already a great, affordable flagship phone, but this deal makes it even more enticing. Unfortunately, stock is extremely low. There’s a chance it’s available in your Zip code, but it might be a good idea to check back later to see if the deal comes back. This is Google’s first phone with its own custom Tensor processor, which gives it the power to take on advanced machine learning tasks on device. It’s powerful, has a colorful OLED display, more than a day of battery life, support for wireless charging, and 5G connectivity. Its impressive camera system also makes it our favorite Android camera phone that rivals the iPhone 13 Pro.

Totallee cases are good options if you absolutely despise slapping a case on your phone, but still want some protection from minor scratches. We’ve tested and liked the brand’s cases, but the company is also offering half off on the rest of its products including screen protectors, wireless charging pads, and ring grips.

Our product reviewer (and one of our resident Gear Team artists) Jess Grey calls the combination of an iPad Pro with a second-generation Apple Pencil her favorite set of art tools. Yes, even counting traditional, non-electronic artists’ tools. Compared to the first-generation Pencil, the second-generation has support for double-tap gestures, and a flat edge for magnetically attaching to the iPad’s spine to charge.
Amazon, Twelve South
An arm mount like this one lets you clear space on a busy tabletop by mounting a tablet almost anywhere on your desk, such as off the side edge. It comes with a stand, though, if you’d rather use that. The height and angle of the tablet screen are adjustable, and the mounting plate easily detaches, so if you feel like taking your tablet to the couch, you won’t have to bust out any tools to separate it from the arm.
