Best Prime Day 2020 phone deals: Samsung Galaxy S20 for $750, Google Pixel 4 for $449 and more


Amazon Prime Day 2020 officially kicked off today — the same day Apple launched the iPhone 12. While you’re not going to find any discounts on the new iPhone on Amazon (sorry), you could very well see slashed prices on older models like the iPhone 11, along with deals on plenty of phones from other manufacturers. Among them are savings on Samsung’s Galaxy S20 Ultra and Galaxy Note 20 ($799 at Amazon), as well as the Google Pixel 4 ($390 at Back Market).

Prime Day runs through Wednesday night. Last year, Amazon offered deep discounts on flagship phones like the Moto Z3 Play, the Samsung Galaxy S10 ($400 at Back Market) and the Google Pixel ($92 at Amazon) 3XL. Amazon unveiled a bunch of sales before Prime Day 2020 officially started. And now that it’s underway, everything from Alexa devices to laptops and TVs is discounted.

Here are the best Amazon Prime Day phone deals we’ve found so far — plus some where Best Buy beats Amazon’s price (find out if Amazon has the best price with these tools). Note that prices and availability were accurate at the time of publication, but are subject to change. 

We’ll keep updating this story as more deals become available.

The Galaxy S20 Ultra is Samsung’s most advanced (and expensive) flagship phone, released earlier this year. It’s greatest feature may be its camera, with a 108-megapixel sensor, a 100x zoom lens and a 40-megapixel selfie camera. The phone also has a huge 5,000-mAh battery for extended battery life. There are Prime Day deals on the 128GB phone in cosmic black and cosmic gray for $1,050.

The midtier S20 Plus has a 6.7-inch screen and supports the fastest 5G speeds, released earlier this year. It also offers excellent camera image quality. The 128GB phone deal is available in cloud blue, cosmic gray and black.

Of Samsung’s Galaxy S20 5G phones, the S20 is the smallest and cheapest — and our reviewer’s favorite. It’s just as stuffed with top-shelf features as the Galaxy S20 Plus and S20 Ultra, from its tack-sharp screen to advanced camera skills. Apart from screen and body size, there aren’t many big differences between the three phones. You can get the 128GB phone in cloud pink, cloud blue or cosmic gray for $750.

The Galaxy Note 20, released in August, has several of the same premium features as the pricier Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, including a strong battery life. While it can’t quite keep up in terms of screen technology, camera specs, build material and RAM, it’s a solid option — especially for $750 on Prime Day. You can find the 128GB version of the Note 20 in mystic bronze, mystic green and mystic gray for $750 on Amazon.

The Moto G7 Power is a 2019 member of the Motorola G budget phone family, offering a wallet-friendly price, several premium features and a gigantic battery (the same size as the one found in the $1,400 Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra). The 2020 Moto G Power — that’s G, not G7 — is faster and newer, but it currently costs $70 more than this model (keep scrolling to find that deal). If you’re on a budget and looking for a phone with a super strong battery life, the Moto G7 Power is worthy of consideration. You can find the Moto G Power on sale at Best Buy for $80 for the 32GB version.

Three more Motorola phones get price drops on Prime Day. 

The 2020 Moto G Power features a wallet-friendly price, a gigantic 5,000-mAh battery and 64GB of storage, along with a 6.4-inch display and triple-rear camera array. Motorola promises that the phone will last up to three days of regular use on a single charge, and in our testing, it’s held up so far. It’s on sale for $150 at Best Buy.

The Moto G Fast has many of the same features as the Moto G Power, including the 6.4-inch display and triple-rear camera array. However, it does have a smaller battery, less RAM and half of the storage, as well as lower screen resolution. It’s on sale for $100 at Best Buy.

The Moto G Stylus is also the same as the Moto G Power at its core, with the same processor, RAM, screen, fingerprint reader and selfie camera. But the stylus adds a level of precision that makes navigating the phone more efficient. You can pick one up for $190 at Best Buy.

Samsung’s 2019 flagship Galaxy S10 phone, along with its premium version Galaxy S10 Plus and budget version Galaxy S10 Lite, gets a discount for Prime Day. The Galaxy S10 is a high-end phone with a reasonable price tag, especially when on sale. It doesn’t have 5G capabilities, but it does have a sharp screen, long battery life and some noteworthy camera features, along with reverse wireless charging.

For Prime Day, you’ll find the following Galaxy S10 phone deals:

The Motorola One Zoom is a midpriced phone with great value and a smooth matte finish, so you won’t get fingerprints all over the back. It also has four high-quality cameras on the back (and the one on the front) and a large battery for up to two days of charge.

The much-anticipated 2020 Motorola Razr marked the return of the flip phone, along with new cameras, support for 5G and useful enhancements to the external quick view display. Not to mention that it folds down to conveniently fit in your pocket. (Note that you can get bigger Razr 5G discounts with trade-ins and line activations from wireless providers, too.)
