Samsung cuts prices for Galaxy S23, S22 and tablets

Samsung has cut the price of its current flagships in a series of surprise discounts. The Galaxy maker isn’t shy about competitively pricing its latest hardware, especially when a rival is about to launch a new product. This year, with Google’s Pixel Fold imminent and two new Razr cell phones arriving this week, Samsung has saved up to $250 from its current list of phones.

There are also some discounts for Galaxy tablets and Galaxy laptops on the Samsung store. If you’ve been resisting buying a Samsung device, now is the time to get one. If all of this is still too rich for your blood, consider Google’s latest perfectly balanced Pixel instead.

The ultra green Galaxy S23, which launched in February, has been discounted by $180 for the 512GB model. The Phantom Black S23+ received a $120 discount. The price of last years S22 Ultra was reduced by $250 (check out my full review here), while the S22+ gets a $100 discount.

The Galaxy Book3 Pro 360 gets $300 off, while the 360 ​​Galaxy Chromebook 2 is $150 cheaper. You can pick up the 512GB Galaxy Tab 8+ for $220 less, and there’s also $80 off the 265GB model.

The bad news is that the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Flip 4 have not been discounted. We may have to wait until August, when Samsung’s next generation of foldable devices arrive, before we see significant price drops. Even without a discount, Samsung has some of the best trade-in prices if you absolutely want to buy one of the company’s foldables right now.

After reviewing the Fold 3 and Fold 4 I can safely say that there isn’t enough difference between the two phones to justify spending hundreds of dollars more on the latest model. So if you can find a cut-price Fold 3 elsewhere, grab it. The other option is to wait for Google’s Pixel Fold and Motorola’s fourth iteration of the revamped Razr, both of which will launch soon.

Is the Pixel Fold and Razr 2023 worth waiting for?

In short, yes. The Pixel Fold will be available to buy next month, so it’s worth seeing how well the flex phone is received (and for my review, of course). I suspect Samsung will announce a new promotion or deal for its existing Fold and Flip phones shortly thereafter, so keep your cash for now.

Samsung is also four versions ahead of Google when it comes to foldable phones, and that experience matters for complex technology. First-generation tech can be hit and miss, and Google has a history of device definition issues, so let the dust settle before you make a decision about which new phone to buy.

The two new Motorola Razr phones, which are said to be a regular model and a professional model, will be the company’s fourth attempt at a foldable version of the classic clamshell phone. The company has steadily improved the Razr with each iteration, but short-lived Android support and inconsistent camera capabilities have held back previous devices. Check out my video below on Razr issues.

Samsung’s pedigree in making smartphones and foldables gives it the edge here. However, I’m interested in a possible higher-end Razr model. Most clamshell phones are essentially expensive mid-range devices with a stylish display, so it’s worth waiting for Motorola to make a real flagship to take a look.

At the very least it’s worth the wait to see how good the new devices are (stay tuned for my reviews) and how Samsung responds with the discounts. If you only have the budget for a cheaper phone, Google’s Pixel 7a is the best value smartphone I’ve ever used.
