THE Check out the Samsung sale event runs until May 21. New deals are posted every day, and while bigger sale offers are a bit hit and miss, it’s always worth checking out if you’re in the market for a Samsung device. We’ve highlighted our favorites below.
The Samsung Galaxy S23 (9/10, WIRED recommends) is the best flagship phone series in our guide to the best android phones. The Ultra typically costs $1,200. Right now, there’s a free storage upgrade, which means the 512GB version costs the same as the 256GB model. You’ll also get $50 Samsung credit. Finally, Samsung is offering up to $750 when you trade in an eligible device. It’s a great deal if you’re looking to upgrade your device. The discount beats the others we’ve seen.
Similar to the offer above, there’s a decent slight discount on this phone, but you can save even more if you trade in a device. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 (8/10, WIRED recommends) is a pretty polished and durable foldable phone, but we don’t like the high price tag. This deal makes it a bit more accessible. The same offer is available for the Flip 4 if you prefer that style.
It’s our favorite TV for bright rooms. The best deals are on the 75 and 85 inch models. The Samsung QN90B (8/10, WIRED recommends) features a Mini LED display that offers excellent contrast, and the 120Hz refresh rate supports the latest game consoles.
Fitness & Outdoor Deals
Adrienne So, editor-in-chief of WIRED, tested lots and lots of fitness trackers. The Garmin Instinct 2 Solar (9/10, WIRED recommends) is his favorite. It strikes a good balance between fitness features, like accurate GPS tracking, and modern convenience features, like music controls. The battery charges in sunlight – Adrienne’s battery lasted three weeks on a single charge. The wide variety of colors and styles is the icing on the cake.
The Apple Watch Ultra (8/10, WIRED recommends) is a juggernaut of gadgets, but it’s still a good apple watch And Fitness Tracker.

This table often sells for at least $100. I haven’t tested it, but I’ve tried similar versions from other companies, and they’re all pretty much the same. This table folds up into a small roll when not in use. Simply unfold the pegs, insert them into the frame, and you’ll have a flat surface to put a plate, mug or bottle of sunscreen on. It even has built-in cup holders. I especially like these tables for making friendship bracelets.
