Samsung’s midrange sleeper hit of a midrange Android phone is on sale and matching its lowest price to date. The Samsung Galaxy A54 5G is just $349.99 ($100 off) at Amazon in either its black or violet colors, matching its Prime Day Lightning Deal price from a month ago.

The A54 is a midranger with some highlight specs and design elements trickled down from the flagship Galaxy S23 models. Its biggest strength is no doubt the excellent 6.4-inch 1080p OLED screen, which, in addition to being big and bright, also supports a supersmooth 120Hz refresh rate. Considering the screen is the thing you constantly interact with on your phone at just about all times, it’s great to have such a good panel at this kind of price. The A54 also complements it with IP67 water and dust resistance, a sizable 5,000mAh battery, and Samsung’s promise of five years of security updates.

$4505% off

The Samsung Galaxy A54 5G adopts the S23 series’ rear panel design and a couple of other flagship-esque features, starting with its 6.4-inch display.

If you’re in the market for a high-quality PC gaming monitor, OLED is the way to go. Alienware’s terribly named AW3423DWF 34-inch curved QD-OLED monitor is on sale for $899.99 ($100 off) at Best Buy. It’s a sizable display with a speedy 165Hz refresh rate, 3440 x 1440 resolution, and a QD-OLED panel displaying deep blacks and bold color contrast. While this is the lower-cost version of the $1,299.99 Alienware AW3423DW that came before it, the DWF has just some small sacrifices for its lower price — it lacks Nvidia’s G-Sync Ultimate and has one less HDMI 2.0 port. It also sports a thinner design that’s easier to mount on the wall, which can be a lifesaver when it comes to precious desk space.

Alienware’s AW3423DWF is a curved ultrawide gaming monitor clocking in at 34 inches with a 165Hz refresh, and it’s one of the first in the market to ship with Samsung’s QD-OLED panel. QD-OLED promises higher brightness while maintaining vivid colors at its brightest levels.
