Now that all of the phones for 2023 are out, we can confidently say that the Google Pixel 8 Pro is the Best phone of the year, and it’s also $200 off for Black Friday. Google’s discounts start today, with the Pixel 8 Pro costing just $799 for the 128GB, or $859 for the 256GB. You can also splurge and get the 512GB for $979. All three variants are $200 off of their regular price.
The Google Pixel 8 Pro is the best phone you can buy this year, and now at this new price, it makes it an even more incredible value. In my review of the Google Pixel 8 Pro last month, I called it the “Smartest Android Smartphone”, and that comes down to all of the AI features that Google has included. These aren’t just AI features to include to hit some buzzwords either. Things like Magic Editor are really incredible, and it’s something I mess around with all the time, because it’s unbelievably good.
Google Assistant also has some cool AI features this year, including the ability to summarize a webpage for you. And we can’t forget about the AI Wallpapers included in the Pixel 8 Pro. Those are really impressive too.
Of course, this is a Pixel, so we can’t not talk about the camera. The camera sensors were upgrade this year, but they aren’t huge upgrades on the hardware side. With the software, there are some cool new tricks, but the big thing is, this still takes really good photos.
Google did really improve the display on the Pixel 8 series this year, with the new Super Actua display on Pixel 8 Pro. I’ve been using this phone for well over a month at this point, and I still can’t get over how good this display looks. Not only does it pop, but it is also very bright. Google says it can get up to 2,600 nits of peak brightness. That makes it the one of the brightest phones on the market. With really only the OnePlus Open being brighter.
But we can’t leave out one of Google’s big negatives with the Pixel 8 Pro, which is the Tensor G3. This is the third-generation Tensor chipset that was made specifically for Pixel phones. It’s better, but it’s still behind the competition. Google isn’t using the most powerful chipset on Pixel 8 Pro, but it is using one that performs really well with AI and machine learning features, and that’s exactly what Google wants with the Pixel.
This is a really good price for this phone, and I wouldn’t hesitate to pick one up myself if I didn’t already have one. You can check out our Black Friday Phone Deals if you’re interested in buying another phone, however.
