This week's best phone deals include Editors' Choice prices on the newly-released Galaxy S10 5G, as well as two Google Pixel models.

Store: Verizon Wireless
Discount: Up to $450 off
Shipping: Free shipping
Lowest By: $650

The S10 5G is finally shipping, and while the hands-on previews have been positive even without much insight into 5G speeds, the price tag is as beefy as you'd expect. Luckily, if you click the "Special Offer" details on the top right of the product page, you'll find instructions for getting up to $450 off with a trade in and to snag a $200 Mastercard gift card. Combined, that halves the phone's list price – a definite Editors' Choice deal.

Its features include a Qualcomm Snapdragon SM8150 2.8GHz octa-core processor, 6.7" Quad HD+ Dynamic AMOLED touchscreen LCD, 8GB RAM, 256GB storage, 12-megapixel rear camera, 10-megapixel front camera, 802.11ax wireless, and Android 9.0 (Pie).

Engadget praised its camera, performance, and long battery life.

It features a 6" 2880x1440 pOLED touchscreen, Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 2.35GHz 8-core processor, 4GB RAM, 64GB storage, 12.2-megapixel rear camera, 8-megapixel front-facing camera, and Android 8.0 (Oreo).

Tom's Hardware were impressed by the iPhone 8 Plus' "blazing speed", "big screen", and "superior dual cameras" – we're equally impressed by its best-ever price.
