GoPRO Hero 7 Black with two freebies for $229

If you haven’t …gone pro yet, you can Go PRO with this latest limited time offer from B&H Photo. For $229 with free US shipping you can get the new condition GoPRO HERO 7 Black bundled with two freebies by B&H: an extra GoPRO battery and an extra GoPRO head-amount kit…

UPDATE: Or if you prefer the HERO 8, you can get it for $299 with free US shipping but without the two freebies at B&H Photo

Google Pixel 4 for $500+, Pixel 4 XL for $600+

The ghosts of the Nexus phones are haunting the Pixel 4, but if you’ve read the reviews, pixel-peeped the sample pictures, and you are certain the Pixel 4* line is the one for you, for a limited time B&H Photo is having discounts on select Pixel 4 phones as follows:

+ Pixel 4: 64GB for $500, 128GB for $600

+ Pixel 4 XL: 64GB for $600, 128GB for $700

These are new condition, factory unlocked, with USA warranty. B&H includes a free case and Mint Mobile SIM card.

NOTE that the Pixel 4 phones do NOT have a headphone jack, and they do NOT have a microSD slot. But you can swim in the Google Clouds 🙂

A lot of people consider the Pixel 4 to have the most pure camera, but not all agree. For example, it is currently at #19 in the DxoMark rankings which have two of the new Honor *30* phones in the Top 5. SPOILER ALERT: the #1 in the ranking is a …LEICA 🙂

NOTE that the latest Huaweii P40* series of phones do NOT have Google Play because of the Huaweii embargo thing. If you look in the forums, there are various hacks that come and go, but come on, it’s 2020, who wants to hunt and peck hacks just so you can run basic apps on your phone?

I remember doing this ten years ago with a crappy Pandigital (?) tablet I got on sale at Radio Shaq. No way I would do this now, there are a gazillion other phones available. But that’s just me. Some people love the excitement of living on the Google Play Frontier 🙂

Samsung Galaxy S20 for $800, S20+ for $1000 [with FREE 128GB microSD]

A limited time offer is running at B&H Photo on the new condition unlocked with USA warranty Samsung S20 and S20+ flagship series smartphones! And during this promotion, each one gets a free 128GB Samsung EVO Plus microSDXC card included by B&H.

The prices are as follows: the 128GB S20 goes for $800, while the 128GB S20+ (aka Plus) goes for $1000, while the 512GB of that goes for $1150.

Further down the list, and not getting the free 128GB microSD card you will find international Latin America versions of the S20 Ultra (the more expensive of this flagship trio) going for $1200. One clue as to the internationality is the “dual SIM” in the title. These come with a 1-year B&H warranty. NOTE that this has the Exynos chip, not the QualComm SnapDragon.

NOTE also that these are 5G phones, so you may accidentally intercept intergalactic planetary conversations 🙂
