It's the weekend, which means it's time for another Dealmaster. Our latest roundup of the best tech deals from around the web is headlined by a number of discounts we saw during Amazon's Prime Day sale that are still available.
Google's Pixel 6 Pro phone, for one, is still down to $699. That's $200 off Google's MSRP and matches the lowest price we've tracked for what we consider the best Android phone you can buy right now. More budget-conscious buyers should note the Pixel 6a is just around the corner and will deliver the same clean software and fast Google Tensor SoC as its siblings for $449. For those who want more power, though, the 6 Pro will still offer a larger display (6.7 inches, instead of 6a's 6.1-inch screen), a higher refresh rate (120 Hz instead of 60 Hz), more RAM (12GB instead of 6GB), and a bigger battery (5,000 mAh instead of 4,410 mAh), among other upgrades. Unfortunately, the deal that brought the standard Pixel 6 down to $499 earlier this week is no longer available.
Beyond that, other highlights include the Beats Fit Pro discounted to $160; that remains the lowest price to date for a set of true wireless earphones we recommend to those who want a more gym-friendly take on Apple's AirPods Pro. Anker's Soundcore Motion+, a powerful and waterproof Bluetooth speaker we like, represents a good value at its current price of $80. And Jaipur, a quick and accessible card-based game we highlight in our list of the best two-player board games, is still at the lowest price we've seen this year.
