Google Pixel 6 Pro is at its lowest price ever, and it's one of the best phones we've tested

Technically, Amazon Prime Day hasn't kicked off yet, but apparently, Google didn't get this memo - it's reduced its Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro to some surprising new pricces.

For the Pixel 6 Pro, this is the cheapest we've seen the phone sell for - that's also the case for the standard model in the US, though in the UK it isn't actually at its lowest cost. The Pro sits on our list of the best phones, and the vanilla model did for a for a time too, and you can check out our Google Pixel 6 review and Google Pixel 6 Pro review for an explanation as to why. 

We're not sure if we should count these as Amazon Prime Day deals since Google has launched its deals early, but perhaps it's doing that to get ahead of competing deals.

With the Pixel 6a coming out very soon and the Pixel 7 already announced, you might be tempted to wait instead of buying, and that's a fair choice. If you don't need a new mobile urgently, you may as well - but if you urgently need a new phone, these are both good options.

Google Pixel 6: $599 $449 at Amazon
Save $100
We've barely seen any decent Pixel 6 discounts so far, so this one is worth paying attention to  - especially because its budget alternative, the Pixel 6a, will only launch for $50 more.View Deal

Google Pixel 6 Pro: $899 $699 at Amazon
Save $200
The previous lowest price for the Pixel 6 Pro was only $100 off, so this is literally twice as good a discount on one of the best phones we've tested. Good luck getting this kind of camera quality for another mobile at this price.View Deal

UK

Google Pixel 6: £599 £449 at Amazon
Save £150
This is quite a low price for Google's middle Pixel, though it did briefly go even lower in price. You're saving 25% of the cost which is good as far as smartphone deals go over Prime Day, and it's only £50 more than the Pixel 6a will launch at.View Deal

Google Pixel 6 Pro: £849 £630 at Amazon
Save £219
This is the lowest we've seen the Pixel 6 Pro go for - this is basically a mid-range price, for a phone that sits on our list of the best mobiles. That's not a bad buy, and it could be one of the best deals of Prime Day - even though it started before Amazon's deals did.View Deal

We can't say for sure whether the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will stay at these prices for Prime Day, or get even cheaper (or raise in price a bit - we've seen that happen a few times before for early deals).

So it's up to you whether you buy or not, but honestly, we'd be surprised if there was another price drop, given that the Pro is already at a new low.

Follow these steps to connect a Pro Controller to your Android phone

Playing games on your smartphone is one of the best ways to entertain yourself. However, it can be tough to play with some games when you're just tapping on a screen. Fortunately, it's possible to sync up a traditional controller. That's where it's nice to connect your Nintendo Switch Pro Controller and get playing on the best gaming phones . By the way, the Playstation 4 controller as well as the Xbox One controller are also compatible with Android devices, if you'd prefer to use one of those.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

I replaced my Steam Deck’s noisy fan and am so happy I did

Photo by Sean Hollister / The Verge 160 hours into Elden Ring, I’m sure of one thing: the single most annoying thing about my Steam Deck is its whiny fan. And now, I’m so happy to report there’s a way to fix it. It takes roughly 15 minutes and $30 — depending on where you live — to install a replacement fan from iFixit. Five days ago, the repair company finally got a large shipment of those fans , and I bought one right away. Now, my Steam Deck’s tiny screech is gone. Is the fan still loud? Yes, yes it is, but it’s a whoosh instead of a whine. I like to think of it as the sound of air escaping the Deck’s vents, but mostly, I don’t think about it at all. I can easily tune out the new whoosh, whereas the whine always managed to get my attention even after Valve tweaked its software to bring the fan noise down. In fact, the new fan has less whine than the electrical tape trick I showed you in April , and — YMMV — seems to be oh-so-slightly quieter overall. I did an admittedly

You can make your new Pixel look like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle

A cool thing about Google’s Pixel 6 series phones is their unique camera bar design . If the finish of that strip were a different color than black — specifically blue, orange, purple, or red — it would totally look kind of like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles . And now that you can’t unsee the resemblance, device outfitter Dbrand would like to help make your Pixel 6 device look like one of your favorite childhood heroes. With Google’s latest phone the Pixel 6a releasing next week , Dbrand decided it's a good time to revisit the sewers and launch its Teenage Mutant Ninja Pixels decals for all three phones. They match the green heroes-in-a-half-shell plus their masks, and include four camera decal strips that reflect the colors of Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael. Personally, I think the Pixel 6a’s two-camera array does the best job looking like proper eyes (the spidery camera array of the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, not so much). Available now for the Pixel 6a: https://
