Google Pixel 6a deal: affordable Android falls to its lowest ever price

The budget Pixel 6a was only launched months ago, so this discount to £299 makes it a great buy

Bargain klaxon! Now here's a Black Friday deal that's hard to ignore: the brand new Google Pixel 6a is just £297 in the Cyber Weeknd sales, running from 17 November until 28 November. Seeing as it's one of the best Android phones you can buy, that £100+ discount is an absolute steal.

I received an email the second the Black Friday sales kicked in, and while I'm disappointed there's no great Pixel 7 or Pixel 7 Pro deals, as you'll find in the USA, the cut price on the Pixel 6A is still massively welcome. Especially as this handset only arrived mere months ago! It's still fresh and great to use, and Amazon has one-upped Google's £100 off with an even better £102 off!

If you're an Android user and want one of the best affordable phones, Google is onto a real winner with the Pixel 6a. It uses Google's own Tensor processor, runs super smooth for a budget phone, and looks the part too. At this price, it's the best budget flagship Android phone for most people right now in my view.

I'd been using the Pixel 6a for months prior to moving into the Pixel 7 Pro – but that was only last month, as the Pixel 6a is still fresh and feels new.  As I make clear in my review of the phone, I think Google is onto an absolute winner with its budget handset. It looks great, its cameras are great, and its price was already great – it's just even better for this flash sale.

I'm wasn't originally sure if Googlewould have the supply to reach the demand of this particular Black Friday deal, but it's still holding strong right through to Cyber Monday, on 28 November, so if that £297 outright purchase price sounds appealing then I'd put one in your basket ASAP before the deal is dead and done.
