Samsung’s End-of-Year Sale Cuts Prices on Our Favorite Phones, TVs, and Tablets (2023)

It’s that time of year again. The holidays? No! Winter Solstice? Try again. Well, I’ll just tell you: it’s Samsung’s quarterly Discover event. I know, I know, it’s less exciting than the winter holidays, but if you’re looking for some Samsung products (for yourself or others), this event is great news. Samsung offers discounts not only on some of its older products but also on its latest and greatest flagships. Here’s a curated list of some of the highlights, released throughout the week, and we also found the same (if not better) deals at other retailers. Each and every one of these picks has been tried, tested and put to the test by the WIRED Gear team.

We’ve also got some Samsung coupons worth checking out, including an exclusive 30 percent off code that comes with a lot of strings attached but could save you money depending on what you’re buying. Dyson also currently has many of its cordless vacuums on sale at prices the same or lower than what we saw on Black Friday, including the Dyson V15 Absolute at $500 and the Dyson V11 at $400.

The Samsung Galaxy S23 (9/10, WIRED recommended) is the ultimate flagship phone. It’s the latest and greatest from Samsung, with no compromises and all the features included. All three phones in the S23 range (S23, S23+ and S23 Ultra) feature bright, fluid 120Hz AMOLED displays and more than a day of battery life on a single charge. During testing, WIRED editor Julian Chokkattu found that the real star is the triple camera system. Offering stellar low-light quality and perhaps the most stable video capture on any Android phone, it’s a camera group well worth the extra money. This is the lowest price we have seen to date. Just remember that Samsung is set to announce the Galaxy S24 series in January.

Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra (7/10, WIRED recommended) is a full-featured tablet with the best hardware of any Android device. It features an ultra-bright display with a smooth 120Hz refresh rate and cutting-edge internal components that make the most of the hardware. Did we mention the 14.6-inch screen? There aren’t many tablets that huge in size. The pen feels responsive and fluid, and apps and games run beautifully on this gigantic screen.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5

The Z Flip5 (7/10, WIRED recommended) isn’t the phone for everyone—it has a few quirks (less-than-stellar battery life, for example)—but it’s a cute little phone. It folds down to about the size of a stack of Post-Its and fits into even the smallest of pockets. Plus, it has an external touch screen, so you don’t need to open it every time you receive an alert. Samsung only has the 512 GB model on sale, but it is cheaper on Amazon for $970. The base 256GB model is a better deal, although it’s down to $800 during Black Friday.

The fifth version of Samsung’s foldable flagship, the Galaxy Z Fold5 (7/10, WIRED recommends) remains one of the best foldable phones on the market. The cameras take great pictures and the screens (internal and external) are bright, colorful and responsive. It’s still a thick, chunky phone when closed. According to WIRED editor Julian Chokkattu, the external screen is still a bit narrow compared to the competition, making some apps feel squished. You can save something extra opting for the 256 GB model.

Samsung Galaxy Watch6 Classic

Samsung’s Galaxy Watch6 Classic (7/10, WIRED recommended) is a responsive smartwatch, and the mechanical bezel makes it fun to scroll through the interface. It’s best paired with Samsung phones if you want the full set of health features, but it works with any Android phone. It’s comfortable to wear and the battery life is better than an Apple Watch or Pixel Watch. He non-classical modelwhich abandons the mechanical bezel, it’s even cheaper.

Samsung S95C QD-OLED

Samsung’s S95C QD-OLED TV (8/10, WIRED Recommended) features a dazzling display capable of reproducing super-bright and super-dark scenes with ease. There’s a level of clarity here that WIRED editor Parker Hall says makes it feel like you can fall into it, like an open window. The screen is topped by thin bezels that only add to this TV’s ability to completely immerse you in whatever you’re watching.

There isn’t much content for 8K TVs yet, but if you have money to spend and want the biggest and best TV on the market, you can’t do much better than Samsung’s QN900C TV (8/10, WIRED). recommends). Backlit by an array of mini-LEDs, the TV produces some of the most beautiful colors and image processing we’ve ever seen.

The Samsung Galaxy Book3 Ultra (6/10, WIRED Review) is a great productivity laptop, and despite its 16-inch screen, it’s surprisingly portable. It’s lightweight, weighing almost a pound less than the M2 Max version of the 16-inch MacBook Pro. It also has a lot of power, thanks to the Nvidia RTX 4050 inside. According to former WIRED contributor Adam Speight, that portability doesn’t mean you’re missing out on power either. This can be configured to have absolutely incredible (and gaming-worthy) internal hardware. It’s a shame that the battery life, speakers, and keyboard are mediocre.
