The mid-range Google Pixel 6a is currently going for a sizeable discount of 50% to reach US$98.99 at Walmart with free shipping. The smartphone which comes in black and has 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage is a stellar mid-range device with great cameras, solid display, smooth performance, and all-day battery life.

Introduced in July 2022 at a starting price of US$449, the Google Pixel 6a is a mid-range smartphone that debuted to critical acclaim. However, as Google has replaced the Pixel 6a with the Pixel 7a (Available on Amazon) this year, the smartphone can often be found at deep discounts at various retailers.

To that end, the Pixel 6a in Black color and 128 GB of storage has dropped to only US$99.88 at Walmart, making the phone a no-brainer at this point (via slickdeals).

Before moving on, it is important to mention that the Google Pixel 6a on sale is locked to Straight Talk (or Verizon Prepaid/Total by Verizon). So, you’ll have to unlock the device if you want to use it on a different carrier. Fortunately, slickdeals has a handy guide on how to unlock the Pixel 6a for cheap.

The Google Pixel 6a is a solid budget smartphone as it nails the fundamentals and excels in the camera department. We gave the phone a rating of 86% in our review mainly due to its excellent construction, great haptics, IP67 protection, and the promise of Android updates till July 2025 alongside security updates that are set to continue till July 2027.

Furthermore, the Pixel 6a also proved to be a smooth operator with the Tensor G1 SoC ensuring lag-free operation. The OLED display on the device was also sufficient for media consumption with an average brightness of 767 nits and an infinite contrast ratio.

Finally, the key selling point of any Pixel A series phone is the camera system on offer which has always punched above its price tag. This is also the case with the Pixel 6a. The phone’s primary camera produced crisp images that possess excellent dynamic range and vibrant colors in our testing. The low-light performance was also quite good. Add to it Google’s software trickeries like Magic Eraser and you have a delightful mid-range camera system that won’t fail to impress

All in all, the Google Pixel 6a deal for US$100 is an absolute bargain and one worth getting in on if you are looking for a budget-friendly smartphone.
