Because time is a flat circle, back-to-school season is creeping up on us just as we were getting settled into summer. Fall flagship phone launches are on the horizon, too. But before you trade in your SPF 30 for a pumpkin spice latte, there’s at least one more summer soiree on the calendar: Prime Day.
The annual summer shopping holiday that was foisted upon us by our online retailer overlords is here once again — well, at least for the next few hours. And if you’ve managed to hold off on a new phone purchase until now, I have good news for you: there are still some darn good savings to be had on an unlocked Android phone. If you managed to put off a new phone purchase until this week, then give yourself a little pat on the back; your patience is about to be rewarded.

The Galaxy S23 Ultra offers a huge 6.8-inch screen, built-in S Pen stylus, two telephoto cameras, and a top-notch Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset. It’s pricey, but there’s nothing else quite like it on the market.
The Galaxy S23 Plus has a large 6.6-inch screen and is mostly at parity with the base S23. It’s got the same Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset and a slightly larger battery capacity of 4,700mAh (up 200mAh from the S22 Plus), but the S23 Plus starts with an ample 256GB of storage in its base configuration.
