Day 2 of Amazon Prime Day 2019 is underway, and things are slowing down. There are fewer Lightning Deals popping up than we saw yesterday, though there are still some great prices to check out. You’ll have time to shop the tech deals below until tonight at 2:59AM ET / 11:59PM PT.
Once Prime Day ends, most of the deals will end — though not all of them. However, you’ll no longer be able to get $300 off of the Samsung Galaxy S10, to name a popular example.
If you’re just joining us, you’ll need an Amazon Prime subscription to get in on the deals. You can get started with a free 30-day trial to the service, then either let it auto-renew, or cancel it once the trial comes to an end.
You’ll find nothing but the best remaining deals below on Android phones, 4K televisions, tablets, smart displays, gaming tech, PC components, speakers, headphones, and much more. We’ll be monitoring sales, updating this page with new additions, and striking out inactive ones along the way.
Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K streaming device is $24.99 (usually $49.99). Plugging this into your TV is an affordable way to get access to 4K content on Prime Video and Netflix. This is the cheapest price yet, and the best time to buy, since Google recently (finally) brought its YouTube app to Fire TV. Plus, it includes a $45 credit for Sling TV.
Google Pixel 3A XL is $479.99, its usual price, but comes with a $100 Amazon gift card with purchase. Google’s Pixel 3A is a great value, since it uses the same great camera from the Pixel 3 for a fraction of the price. If you aren’t waiting on the Google Pixel 4 to release later this year, and aren’t in need of a phone with a serious amount of power, the 3A XL should suit you well. It’s currently set back in stock, shipping in 1 to 3 weeks.
Razer Phone 2 is $399.99 (usually $649.99). This phone might be a good fit for you if you value high refresh rates. It’s one of the few devices to have a 120Hz refresh rate display, making everything from scrolling around social media to playing games more snappy and responsive.
Nokia 7.1 is $249 (usually $349). This phone runs the latest Android 9 Pie software (and is ensured timely software and security updates until late 2020, as part of Google’s Android One initiative). They work only on GSM carriers (AT&T, T-Mobile, Cricket, Metro by T-Mobile), and if you’re on one of those carriers, this is a good value, so long as you aren’t expecting flagship-like speeds and stellar camera performance.
Amazon Kindle Paperwhite with 32GB storage is $109.99 (usually $159.99). If you’re in the market for a new e-reader, make it this one. Chaim Gartenberg spent time with almost every e-reader on the market, but this one stood out as the best in terms of features with its waterproofing, a very clear, crisp 300ppi display, and backlighting. It also features much more internal storage than the traditional 8GB model, which you can fill with Audible audiobooks.
Amazon Echo Show 5 smart display is $49.99 (usually $89.99). Amazon only just released this smaller take on the Echo Show smart display. Now, it’s half of its usual price. Per Dan Seifert’s review, this model has better sound quality than other similarly sized displays, like Google’s Nest Hub, and now it’s far cheaper, too.
Nintendo Switch Joy-Con controllers (all colors) are $59.99 (usually $79). This is a good opportunity to snag an extra set of Joy-Con for multiplayer games, to switch up your color style, or in preparation for the Nintendo Switch Lite, which doesn’t come with its own set of swappable Joy-Con. Only a few color options remain.
