The price of smartphones has skyrocketed in recent years. The iPhone 14 and its €1,019 entry ticket is just one example among many. Be aware, however, that it is always possible to find quality devices at reasonable prices. To do this, you just have to watch for the one-off offers that are offered by most retailers, as is currently the case for the excellent Google Pixel 6.
Why CNET recommends the Google Pixel 6?

Pixel mini: Google is preparing a compact smartphone
With the Pixel 6a arriving at the end of July and Pixel 7/7 Pro to be announced next month, Google is reportedly considering launching an all-new model in its smartphone lineup. A new report indeed specifies that a compact model would be under development.
Apple has just abandoned the miniature format of its iPhones after two years. Google, for its part, is considering getting into the dance with its Pixels. According to the leaker Digital Chat Station, the American firm is currently working on a “small screen” model. He adds that this model would be entitled to a punch centered at the top of the screen and a “family” look at the back.
No details have been specified regarding a launch date for this Pixel mini. However, we know her code name: “Neila”. Regarding the reason for a compact model, Digital Chat Station explains that Google would find it difficult to establish itself in foreign countries where small screens are highly appreciated.
As a reminder, the Pixel 6a screen is 6.1 inches, 6.4 inches for the Pixel 6, and 6.7 inches for the Pixel 6 Pro. Google would thus consider offering a panel below 6 inches for its Pixel mini, as Apple had done with the iPhone 12 mini and 13 mini (5.42 inches).
On Amazon, the price of the Google Pixel 6 collapses like never before
Marketed at its launch at a price of 649 euros, the Pixel 6 goes below 500 euros for the first time. To take advantage of it, it is on the side of Amazon that you have to go. The e-merchant displays it today at a price of 501 euros thanks to a generous discount of -23%.
By taking advantage of this good plan, you therefore realize a very nice saving of almost 150 euros since the Google 6 is usually sold for 649 euros. As often, the offer is valid within the limit of available stocks, and it will not be necessary to delay too much at the risk of seeing the rupture appear.
In case you change your mind once you have received the Pixel 6, you can claim your money back guarantee. In other words, this means that you have 30 days to return it and receive a refund in case the smartphone does not meet your expectations.
Pixel 6: Google’s must-have smartphone
Enjoying an excellent reputation since its release, Google’s Pixel 6 is one of the most successful smartphones on the market. The latter stands out from its competitors for the exceptional quality of its photos. If you are looking for a device to immortalize your most beautiful moments, then this Pixel 6 will be perfect. Especially since with the current Amazon promotion, it is possible to obtain it for the first time at a price of around 500 euros.
It’s rather very interesting, especially when you know that premium smartphones equipped with a camera offering such quality are generally available at prices around 800 euros. We think of Samsung’s Galaxy S22+ or Apple’s iPhone 13. On the technical sheet side, this Pixel 6 has some under the hood as they say. It sports a superb OLED screen in 20:9 format with a diagonal of 6.4 inches displaying a Full HD + definition of 1,080 x 2,400 pixels and a resolution of 411 dpi.
Its refresh rate of 90 Hz allows it to be fluid and responsive and adapts perfectly to all types of use, especially for video games or watching series and films. To protect it from any accidental drops or scratches, the screen of this Pixel 6 is adorned with Corning Gorilla Glass Victus protection. The very practical Always-on mode is also included. The latter allows you to have a quick overview of notifications, without having to unlock the screen, which notably gives it better autonomy.
Speaking of battery life, that of the Google Pixel 6 is excellent. Equipped with a large capacity 4,614 mAh battery, you can comfortably last a long day of intensive use – and almost two days of normal use. And if not, you can recharge it at lightning speed thanks to fast charging (30W). For the rest, the device includes an internal memory of 128 GB that can be expanded using the micro SD slot.
The Google Tensor processor is coupled with an 8 GB RAM memory. A combo that ensures excellent performance. Everything is boosted with artificial intelligence in order to best adapt to your daily needs, whatever your use. As we said, the strong point of this Pixel 6 is the photo part. The smartphone houses a photo module consisting of a 50 MP wide-angle main sensor, supported by a 12 MP ultra-wide-angle lens. A balanced configuration that allows you to obtain high quality photos and videos.
So many assets that make this Google Pixel 6 one of the smartphones offering the best value for money on the market. As a reminder, it is currently on promotion on Amazon which displays it at 501 euros instead of 649 euros.
