'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

Best Amazon deals

Here, you'll find our picks for the best Amazon deals.

There's a reason this portable powerhouse has rocketed to the top of not only our best phones list but also our best phones that specifically operate on Android. The upgraded battery life and processor are top-notch upgrades. However, the camera is where this mobile device really shines, as it captures more in low light for beautiful picture.

When ZDNET mobile expert June Wan hit up a game at Madison Square Garden, he snapped a photo with this dedicated Nightography feature and found: "The S23 Ultra does an impressive job of keeping most of the elements in detail, like the architecture of the ceiling and the crowds of white, orange, and blue shirts. The lights aren't overexposed, which I'll credit to the 200MP image sensor that's able to process more details in dimmer settings, and the phone isn't trying to make a low-light environment look like it wasn't one -- which most cameras wrongfully do nowadays."

Review: The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is the best smartphone of the year (so far)

As someone who isn't a morning person, I truly feel it when I have to drag myself out of bed before the sun rises. A light therapy alarm clock works wonders, coming from personal experience, and if you have Amazon Alexa in your smart home, why not try out its latest health and wellness addition, the Halo Rise? It mimics the sun to make sure that you wake up not feeling jolted out of your sleep by the blaring alarm clock. Use the Halo app to check your sleep routine and see how well you're sleeping and when, too. 

In her review, ZDNET wellness expert Christina Darby stated, "For deep sleepers who are worried that the light alone won't be enough to wake you, alarm chirps accompany the brightness -- with five audio tones to choose from within the Halo app -- making for a pleasant but effective way to get you out of bed."

I use a plethora of different smart home systems in my apartment -- and the Philip Hue Ambiance Lightstrip is one of the coolest features in my living room. The lightstrip adds great ambiance with millions of available colors. My personal favorite feature is that I can attach it behind my TV or behind my desk to provide extra lighting.

How did we choose these Amazon deals?

At ZDNET, we're seasoned veterans when it comes to scouting for deals. We combed through hundreds of deals, closely checking prices, reviews, and our personal experiences with our selection. Everything you see on here -- with the exception of a few major companies like Apple -- is at least 20% off, and it's a real deal, meaning we didn't include anything that was price gouged on this list.

If we've reviewed the product, we've included the review so you can make the best decision for your lifestyle, too. And of course, anything on this list we stand by as a quality product -- and a truly great deal.

Will Amazon host another Prime sale?

The Prime event in the summer of 2022 and October 2022 shattered records for the online retailer. As such, we fully expect it to host the savings extravaganza again at some point in the future. In the meantime, we'll totally keep our eyes and ears peeled to give you updates when we know more.
