14 of the Best Deals on Our Favorite Tech

Time is moving fast. It feels like New Year's Eve was just yesterday, but it's already the middle of January. Before we slide through the end of the month, we've got some discounts for you. Some of our favorites this week include affordable TVs from TCL—they might come in handy for the upcoming Super Bowl—and it's also a nice time to buy a phone, as we're about to see a great deluge of new products arrive and 2019's devices are seeing discounts.

TV and Soundbar Deals

Check out our Best TVs and Best Soundbars guides for more options.

  • TCL 6-Series (2019) 55-inch TV for $549 ($100 off): TCL's 6-Series is our favorite 4K TV (9/10, WIRED Recommends) at the moment, as its excellent image quality offers up the best bang for your buck. It supports Dolby Vision and comes with Roku's streaming platform built-in. It's tough to find a better TV at this price, especially at 55 inches.

  • TCL 5-Series (2018) 50-inch TV for $300 ($50 off): You really don't need to spend more than $300 for an great TV, though. The 2018 TCL 5 Series is still excellent—also offering Dolby Vision and Roku—but its color gamut isn't as strong as the newer 6 Series, which utilizes quantum dot technology (QLED). Still, the 50-inch model here at this price is a steal.

  • Yamaha YAS-209BL Soundbar for $300 ($50 off): Most TVs need to be paired with a good soundbar for the best audio experience, and this one from Yamaha is one of our favorites. It has Alexa built-in, and you can easily cast music from your phone via Bluetooth. It helps that it sounds pretty good, too.

Phone Deals

If you want other phone options, take a look at our Best Android Phones and Best Cheap Phones guides.

  • Google Pixel 3A for $339 ($60 off): Google's Pixel 3A is still our top Android phone pick (9/10, WIRED Recommends) because it brings a strong mix of features at an excellent price. For starters, it's still really hard to find a camera phone this good in this price range. You also get reliable performance and battery life that's pretty good. There's a good chance we'll see a Pixel 4A in May, so the price could dip even further if you wanted to wait.

  • Moto G7 Power for $200 ($50 off): There's a good chance Motorola's next G-series phones are on the way soon, but this is a great price for a phone (9/10, WIRED Recommends) that performs well and lasts forever thanks to its unusually large 5,000 mAh battery capacity inside. It snaps decent photos and the phone itself doesn't look cheap.

  • OnePlus 7 Pro for $499 ($170 off): The OnePlus 7 Pro (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is barely a year old, yet it still is one of the most futuristic-looking phones thanks to its all-screen design, and its selfie camera that pops out of the body when its needed. It's fantastically powerful and has an amazing 90 Hz refresh rate screen, which makes any content look silky smooth. Expect a new OnePlus phone in the coming months, but $500 is a great price for the 7 Pro.

  • Wandrd Prvke 31 Liter Backpack with Camera Cube for $204 ($96 off): This is associate reviews editor Julian Chokkattu's current backpack of choice. It’s weather resistant (including the zippers), has plenty of pockets to fit all your gadgets, and the camera cube insert makes it easy to organize equipment like a camera and lenses. A side pocket offers easy access to a camera while the backpack is still on you, and it can fit a 16-inch MacBook Pro with no trouble.

  • Apple 10.2-inch iPad (2019) for $279 ($50 off): In the market for a tablet?
