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.

US

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.

Uber Eats exits seven markets, transfers one as part of competitive retooling

Uber Eats is pulling out of a clutch of markets — shuttering its on-demand food offering in the Czech Republic, Egypt, Honduras, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Uruguay and Ukraine. It’s also transferring its Uber Eats business operations in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to Careem, its wholly owned ride-hailing subsidiary that’s mostly focused on the Middle East. “Consumers and restaurants using the Uber Eats app in the UAE will be transitioned to the Careem platform in the coming weeks, after which the Uber Eats app will no longer be available,” it writes in a regulatory filing detailing the operational shifts. “These decisions were made as part of the Company’s ongoing strategy to be in first or second position in all Eats markets by leaning into investment in some countries while exiting others,” the filing adds. An Uber spokesman said the changes are not related to the coronavirus pandemic but rather related to an ongoing “strategy of record” for the company to hold a first or s

This popular open-source web server has some serious security flaws

OpenLiteSpeed Web Server, a globally popular open-source web server , was carrying a couple of high-severity vulnerabilities, experts have warned. Threat actors that managed to exploit these flaws would have been given full privilege remote code execution capabilities, noted researchers from Unit 42, Palo Alto Networks’ cybersecurity research arm.  The team found OpenLiteSpeed Web Server carried three high-severity vulnerabilities, namely CVE-2022-0073 (an 8.8 severity score, high-severity remote code execution flaw), CVE-2022-0074 (an 8.8 high-severity privilege escalation flaw), and CVE-2022-0072 (a 5.8, medium-severity directory traversal flaw). The vulnerabilities also affected the enterprise version, LiteSpeed Web Server. Patch ready Unit 42 has notified LiteSpeed Technologies of its findings which has, subsequently, patched the flaws, and released new versions of the server, urging users to update their software immediately.  Organizations using OpenLiteSpeed versions 1.5.1

Since so few games provide this feature, we've taken the time to test and compiled our list of the best games that let you play with the best Bluetooth controller in your hands. We'd also recommend getting a Style Ring or PopSocket which can help prop your phone up at a good angle for gaming.
