The Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL showcase the best of what Google has to offer on Android. With impressive performance, mind-blowing camera performance, and quick software updates, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL offer a very good package as smartphones. However, as has been the trend at Google, the devices are priced towards the higher end, making them difficult to recommend as a value package.
The Google Pixel 3 launched at $799 for the 64GB storage variant and $899 for the 128GB storage variant. Similarly, the Google Pixel 3 XL launched at $899 for the 64GB storage variant and a cool $949 for the 128GB storage variant. The high price of the devices certainly prevented a lot of people from purchasing the device, since better value packages existed, even at those price ranges.
If you have been looking to purchase the device but were dissuaded by the price, Google has now discounted the Pixels from their original launch price. The Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL have both received a discount of $150, which now outs the smaller Pixel 3 down to $649. The discounts are applicable to both the storage variants.
The discounts certainly make the Google Pixels a much better deal than what they started out with. Google has been at work ironing out the bugs and oddities present on the release software of both the devices, so you now get a much more polished experience. The devices are also slated to receive major Android updates until October 2021, so they are still safe bets if being on the latest Android version is a priority for you. The devices sold on the US Google Store are also carrier-unlocked, and hence, can be used on any network, including Verizon.
Will you purchase the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL at these discounted prices? Or do the devices need to be even cheaper to match their experience? Let us know in the comments below!
