We’re still stuck at home, but despite the uncertainty of the coronavirus pandemic, there are still some good deals out there. This week we’ve seen great price cuts on a slew of Android phones, as well as half off PopSockets pop-up phone grips.
This weekend we’ve got even more deals for you on everything from tablets to telescopes. Note that some of these items have shipping delays due to high demand during the pandemic, but if you don’t mind waiting for your stuff, you can score a deal today.

Phone, Tablet, and Gadget Deals
Google Pixel 3A 64 GB for $299 ($100 off): The Pixel 3A (9/10, WIRED Recommends) is the Best Cheap Android Phone, and with this sale, buying it is a no-brainer. It’s worth this price for the camera alone, and the headphone jack is a feature that’s in short supply these days. You can also get the same deal at Amazon. A new Pixel 4A is expected to launch soon, but this phone is still a good buy.
Samsung Galaxy S10 for $600 ($150 off): There are several different Galaxy S10 models, and they’re all on sale. We have a handy guide on which one to pick if you’re stuck. Really, though, you can’t go wrong; we gave the S10 a 9/10 in our review. It might be a year old, but it’s still powerful, has a good camera set, solid battery life, and gorgeous color options.
Amazon Fire HD 8, 16 GB for $65 ($30 off): This is Amazon’s best-value tablet and our top pick for traveling. It may be a while before we get to travel again, but in the meantime, I enjoy reading books on my couch with it every night. Note that the Fire HD 8 is only available right now as the version “without special offers”.
Microsoft Surface Pro 7 for $800 ($100 off): We still love the original Surface design, with its kickstand and keyboard cover. This model, with an Intel Core i5, 8-gigabytes of RAM, and 128-gigabyte storage drive has enough power and storage to double as a light-duty laptop. The same deal is available in the Microsoft Store.
Amazon Echo 3rd Gen for $60 ($40 off): Amazon’s latest Echo speaker boasts the same bold bass and room-filling soundstage as the older Plus model, but costs much less. Use it in the kitchen for recipes and timers, the bedroom for news and weather, or put it in the bathroom for shower singalongs.
Fossil Gen 4 Smartwatches for $129+ ($146 off): If you love traditional watches, this Fossil offers a stylish way to dip a toe in the smartwatch waters. It runs Google’s Wear OS platform, which lets you check notifications from your phone and track basic fitness metrics like heart rate, steps, and more.
