There’s no shortage of deals on Samsung’s latest generation of Galaxy S23 phones, but most offers come with lots of strings attached. If you’d rather skip the headache of comparing service plans and trade-in values altogether, then you may be better off with a previous-gen model.
Last year’s Galaxy S22 Ultra is still more than capable of handling most people’s day-to-day needs, and right now, you can snag it at a serious discount. Amazon is currently offering a whopping $500 off several configurations, which drops the starting price of the 128GB model back down to the all-time low price of $700. There’s no set expiration for this deal, so we suggest getting your order in sooner rather than later if you don’t want to miss out on these savings.
The S22 Ultra won a CNET Editors’ Choice Award last year and remains a great phone for most people — especially at this price. It runs on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor and has a large 6.8-inch display. It also comes equipped with an S Pen so you can write, draw and more, directly on the screen. The camera is solid, too — the S22 Ultra supports 8K recording and has a better low-light camera than its predecessor. And the battery should last all day with average use. One of the main drawbacks of this particular phone was the expensive price tag, but this discount makes it a lot easier to recommend for just about anyone looking for a larger device.
