After Apple’s “Far Out” event, where it had an impressive showing with the iPhone 14 Pro and a bunch of other gadgets, Samsung is hitting back with a nice right hook, delivering the first-ever (and best) discounts. on its fourth generation foldable phones. Available for $999.99 at launch, the 128GB configuration of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 is currently discounted to $899.99 on Amazon.

The larger Z Fold 4 also received a significant discount, lowering the 256GB model’s $1,799.99 launch price to $1,599.99. You can also find the 512GB configuration for $1,719.99, down from its usual $1,919.99.

It might still be a bit fancy, but the fourth iteration of the Galaxy Z Flip is actually a pretty decent phone with solid battery life that easily compresses into a roughly 3 x 2-inch block that can actually hold in your pocket (wild!). Photo capabilities are slightly lacking compared to the Z Fold 4, but the Flip 4 is a great choice for something reminiscent of a flip phone. Read our review.

As for the Z Fold 4, it offers more screen space and opens like a book. The 7.6-inch internal screen gives you more than enough space to run apps side-by-side or stream games and movies. When folded, the Z Fold 4 offers a generous 6.2-inch screen for checking notifications or responding to text messages. Read our review.

If you need accessories to go with your brand new phone, you might want to check out some of the chargers offered by Spigen and Anker. The Spigen ArcField 15W Qi Charger is normally priced at $69.99, but is currently discounted to $54.99 for Amazon Prime members, and you can get an additional $7 when you clip the coupon before payment. The 15W charger provides enough juice to quickly charge any modern Android or Apple phone. Just make sure you have an adapter handy that supports at least 15W charging.

If you’re cool with wired chargers, check out Anker’s Compact Single-Port 65W USB-C Adapter which is usually priced at $49.99 but is currently discounted to $34.99. The brand’s 100W Tri-Port Adapter is also discounted, priced at $67.99 instead of the usual $79.99. Like all of Anker’s Nano II series chargers, both adapters feature Charging IQ, which regulates the charger’s power by detecting the device it’s charging.
