'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.
The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro, Google's latest smartphones, are set for release on Oct. 13. Now through Oct. 23, you can pick up a free $100 (with a Pixel 7) or $200 (with a Pixel 7 Pro) Amazon gift card with your purchase. But this is one of those "while supplies last" deals, so if you're interested you may want to make a move soon.
The size of the gift card is the same regardless of whether you buy the cheapest 128GB model or the more expensive 256GB and 512GB phones. While technically the "discount" you're getting is a higher percentage with the 128GB models, at the end of the day get the right Pixel 7 for you.
With this deal, you're getting an unlocked 5G Android phone. The Pixel 7 Pro comes in black (obsidian), white (snow), or yellow (lemongrass), and with the Pixel 7 you can choose the same black or white color with the additional option of hazel instead of yellow.
Choosing between the Pixel 7 or Pixel 7 Pro can be a matter of taste if you prefer having a yellow phone over a hazel one. When it comes to price, the Pixel 7 is the way to go. But the Pixel 7 Pro is best if you're looking for performance, it has a bigger display, more RAM, a larger battery, and a telephoto camera.
