Deals: Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra and S23 FE prices fall

Last week a 512GB Galaxy S24 Ultra was $1,220, now it’s down $50 at Amazon and Best Buy. The 256GB model remains $1,100 and doubling the storage is well worth the $70 if you ask us. This will help with the longevity of the phone (it will be supported for 7 years), as the operating system and applications will continue to grow in the years to come.

The Samsung Galaxy S23 FE (8/128GB) was $600 at the end of April, now that model is $50 less. The same goes for the 8/256 GB version, which now costs $610.

The OnePlus 12R has been $530 for a while – that’s for the version with 16GB of RAM and 256GB of storage – but the S23 FE’s price drop has us comparing the two models again. The 12R has a lot going for it, like an LTPO display and a more modern Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset (vs. 8 Gen 1), not to mention a larger, faster-charging 1,000 mAh battery on startup.

Meanwhile, Samsung is preparing to launch the next generation of foldable devices (shortly before the start of the Olympics). This could be the last hurray for the Galaxy Z Fold5 – its price is still pretty steep, but Amazon is now offering a $300 gift card to sweeten the deal. Or you might want to wait a few months to see what the Z Fold6 looks like, along with any FE models that might arrive and (of course) Z Fold5 prices might drop.

We could see new TWS earbuds from Apple at its next iPad-focused event on Tuesday, as AirPods Pro (2nd generation) get longer and longer. These are still very capable buds and have the best integration with Apple products and are currently $60 less than their MSRP. Note that this is a case with a USB-C charging port (and MagSafe for wireless charging).

If you have an Android or just don’t want AirPods, you can have the Bose QuietComfort Eabuds II for virtually the same price. They offer great sound, active noise cancellation and are comfortable to wear. On the other hand, they lack wireless charging and multipoint connectivity.

The Insta360 X4 was announced a few weeks ago, it’s the company’s first 8K 360° camera. The extra resolution provides more detail as you narrow the field of view. You can also get higher frame rates at 5.3K and 4K than the X3 could manage.

Chromebooks have carved out a niche for themselves as inexpensive laptops that are great for certain use cases (they’re popular in schools, for example). Some are really, really cheap – this Acer only costs $140, which is even less than cheap Android tablets like the Amazon Fire Max 11 (and that’s before you buy a keyboard case).

It’s not a great laptop by any means as its 15.6-inch screen only has a resolution of 1366 x 768 px. Additionally, the Intel Celeron N4020 is a fairly weak chip with 2 cores (2 threads), it doesn’t help that it’s paired with only 4GB of RAM and 64GB of eMMC storage. But again, it only costs $140 and that doesn’t look too bad compared to cheap Android tablets.

For something fancier but still reasonably priced, this Asus has a 14-inch (1920 x 1080 px) touchscreen and a 360° hinge that allows it to transform into a sort of Tablet. It has a more powerful AMD Ryzen 3 (7320C) processor with 4 cores (8 threads) and a more efficient Radeon iGPU. It is paired with 8GB of faster RAM and a 128GB SSD.

There’s talk of a PS5 Pro, but that hasn’t come to fruition yet, so if you want a new console, the PlayStation 5 Slim is what Sony has to offer. For some reason, the disc version and the digital version cost the same – $450 – and the disc version comes with a copy of Spider-Man 2 (it’s a digital download). We’ll keep an eye on the digital version in case Best Buy drops its price.
