If you're looking for a smartphone on a budget, you can get a Verizon unlocked Google Pixel 3 smartphone for just $169.99 at B&H (opens in new tab). That's a great discount considering the other unlocked phones for the other carriers are going for $230, and you can find this phone going for $285 at other retailers. The drop to $170 is within about $10 of the best deal we've seen for the Pixel 3 recently.

Only the Verizon Unlocked version is on sale. Other carriers are still going for $230. The Pixel 3 has 64GB storage but the 128GB version is also discounted to $200 from $250. Get rear 12.2MP dual-pixel cameras, 4G LTE, an OLED screen, and more.

The budget version of the next-generation Pixel 4, the Pixel 4a, is one of our favorite budget phones, but even it is priced at $300 or more (opens in new tab) most places right now. Save some money and get a phone with many of the same features with today's deal.

The Pixel 3 was one of our favorite phones when it first released and we gave it 4.5 stars out of 5 in our review. Even at its full price of $800 back then, Andrew Martonik said "I can recommend them without qualms or caveats, because they're just so good at doing the things everyone wants from a modern smartphone... without show-stopping issues, problems, or tricks to learn."

With this phone you get 4GB memory, at least 64GB storage, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset, and a powerful 2.5GHz Kryo 385 Gold quad-core processor. It has a 5.5-inch OLED screen with 2160 x 1080 pixel resolution and Gorilla Glass 5 coating to make it extremely durable. Other features include USB-C charging, Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi 5, NFC pairing, and more.

Record video in up to 4K resolutions and take fantastic pictures. You'll get a 12.2MP sensor on the wide-angle rear camera with a 28mm lens. The front has both a wide-angle and ultra-wide angle lens with 8MP sensors. The cameras include plenty of great features like phase-detect autofocus, multi-frame dynamic range enhancement, and even electronic image stabilization.

J.D. Levite has been in the deals game since 2012. He has posted daily deals at Gizmodo, The Wirecutter, The Sweethome, and now for Thrifter. He was there for the first Prime Day and has braved the full force of Black Friday. If you cut him, he bleeds savings. But don't try it for real. That's a metaphor.

  • Not really a good deal since Google is pulling support for the Pixel 3 in October this year so the lower price is to get rid of old stock.
