The best smartphone deals of the winter sales 2023
Google Pixel 7 Pro
With the Pixel 7 Pro, Google finally keeps its smartphone formula alive. Pleasant to the eye thanks to its elegant design, it is also very pleasant for everyday use and benefits from a good grip. In terms of performance, the Google smartphone stands out thanks to the presence of the Google Tensor G2 SoC paired with 12 GB of RAM, even when you need to focus on the most demanding 3D games.
The display is very satisfactory with an AMOLED LTPO QHD + panel with a refresh rate ranging from 10 to 120 Hz. Offering bright and contrasting colors and an excellent rear-mounted photo unit, it lets you take full advantage of your shots. cap.
For sales, the Pixel 7 Pro benefits from a very nice discount that allows you to get it for 774 euros instead of the usual 899 euros. The price obtained by combining the discount given during the sale and the promo code 25 DEC 299 Offered by Cdiscount.
The Google Pixel 7 Pro’s little brother, the Pixel 7 (very short), is also available during the sale. By going to Cdiscount and using the same promo code, you can get this smartphone rated 9/10 in our columns for €574 instead of €649 normally.
Apple iPhone 13
If it has since been replaced by the iPhone 14, the iPhone 13 is still a great smartphone. By taking the strengths of the previous generation and correcting the weaknesses, it offers services worthy of its grade. Apple’s oft-criticized autonomy has been the subject of real progress, with more than two hours of gain. Enough to let it stand for more than a day and a half. Only regret is the lack of fast charging…
Still, Apple’s in-house chip (here, the A15 Bionic) works wonders and allows the iPhone 13 to offer devilishly impressive performance regardless of usage. So much so that it’s hard to blame him (and we won’t complain). For the rest, Apple deploys its usual panoply, with a well-made OLED panel (but still not 120 Hz), an efficient and versatile photo unit and, above all, a piece of software that is still pleasant to use.
The iPhone 13 is currently on sale at Cdiscount for €749 thanks to a promo code. 25 DEC 299. A very attractive price for this device is usually offered around 900 euros.
Oppo Find X5 Pro
With Find X5 Pro, Oppo will directly introduce the highest-end smartphones available in the market. And with good reason, the services offered by this device are impressive. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 installed here works wonders, especially since Oppo has accompanied it with 12GB of RAM. An effective combination regardless of the task required.
Not to spoil anything, Oppo also installed a large AMOLED panel (6.67 inches) with a resolution of 3216 x 1440 pixels and a transparent display in all conditions. There is nothing to complain about, neither in terms of autonomy (it takes full advantage of the fast charging developed in Oppo), nor in terms of the photo part, which proves to be very satisfactory in use.
A high-end smartphone means a high price, and the Oppo Find X5 Pro is generally offered around 1,300 euros. For sales, Amazon radically lowers the bill by reducing it by 400 euros, which brings it down to 899 euros.
Sony Xperia Pro-1
The Sony Xperia Pro-1 isn’t a phone for all hands, and it will particularly suit those looking for a full, sharp and, above all, customizable camera phone. Sony has really packed its camera with a photo unit focused on versatility and quality, especially thanks to the Sony Exmor RS one-inch sensor.
The manufacturer has also worked specifically on the photo experience by, for example, allowing manual adjustment of all shooting parameters (shutter speed, ISO sensitivity, etc.), as well as offering the ability to save files in RAW format. For the rest, this Sony Xperia Pro-1 offers great advantages thanks to the presence of the Snapdragon 888 or the 6.5-inch OLED screen with a resolution of 3,840 x 1,644 pixels for a refresh rate of 120 Hz.
With a starting price of 1,799 euros, the Xperia Pro-1 is a cheap smartphone that will not appeal to everyone. And for sales, Amazon offers a nice discount, as it is available for 1099 euros.
Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra
Do you really need to introduce the Galaxy S22 Ultra? The latest from Samsung and the big brother of the S22 series, this smartphone offers a lot of premium features that surely make it one of the smartphones of 2022. With an original design reminiscent of the late Galaxy Note, the Galaxy S22 Ultra is extremely beautiful. it’s a pleasure to use, and the addition of a stylus is ultimately far from being a gadget.
Under the hood, we find a quite capable Exynos 2200, despite some concerns once in the game. In a fairly classic way for a Samsung phone, the screen is a bit annoying: it offers a large, bright, fluid, sensitive and perfectly calibrated screen. bordering on perfection. Nothing can be said about the photo part carried by the main sensor of 108 megapixels.
The Galaxy S22 Ultra, which was launched at the beginning of last year for around €1,200, is currently on sale on Fnac, which offers you a €200 saving. What can be bought for 999 euros.
Google Pixel 6a
If you’re looking for a cheap smartphone that’s simple and easy to use, good at photography, the Pixel 6a is for you. The user experience offered by Google in Android 12 is just exemplary. All Google services and features are present and this Pixel 6a is a pleasure to use. In particular, its compact and manageable design gives it an excellent grip.
In the image part, Google also drew attention with a versatile photo block that glows in most cases, in portrait and at night. A real success that makes it one of the best photophones in its price category. A Full HD + OLED display at 60 Hz and a Google Tensor SoC round out the extensive capabilities of this clearly well-built Pixel 6a.
During the sale, Fnac offers you €110 in savings on the Google Pixel 6a, making it €349 instead of €459.
Launched last year, the Xiaomi 12 is a smartphone that relies on its small size to deceive. With a weight of 180 grams, the Shaky gives the impression of lightness, even fragility (which is far from it thanks to the presence of Gorilla Glass Victus). It also benefits from a very pleasing design thanks to its clean lines.
Powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, it offers decent performance, although it tends to heat up a bit quickly. On the display side, Xiaomi has installed a bright and contrasting panel that pleases the eyes. As for the photo part, if it turns out to be quite efficient, it is primarily due to the software part and its algorithms.
Currently and until the end of sales, the Xiaomi 12 is offered for 474 euros instead of 899 euros thanks to a promo code. 25 DEC 299.
Samsung Galaxy M32
If you’re looking for a simple, no-frills and cheap smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy M32 is definitely a great investment. This mid-range model features a Mediatek Helio G80 SoC paired with 6GB of RAM, which gives it the right performance for its price placement.
The rear panel houses a 64-megapixel wide-angle camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, a macro sensor, and a depth sensor. It is enough to get a point that is quite versatile. Finally, it stands out for its 5000 mAh battery, which gives it good autonomy.
Taking a trip to Cdiscount, you can find this Galaxy M32 for €199 instead of the usual €309.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro
Known for offering rugged, high-performance and affordable smartphones, Xiaomi does not disappoint with the Redmi Note 10 Pro. With a rather large 6.67-inch 120 Hz Super AMOLED panel, the Redmi Note 10 Pro also stands out thanks to its technical data sheet. Built around the Snapdragon 732G SoC, it allows it to benefit from solid performance in daily tasks and games.
Its 5020 mAh battery, combined with efficient fast charging, gives it excellent autonomy even in the case of somewhat intensive use. The Redmi Note 10 Pro also delivers photos thanks to a particularly efficient 108-megapixel sensor.
The final asset of this smartphone: its price. Originally offered for around €300, it’s currently on sale at Cdiscount for €199, which is a great deal.
