The two new Pixel phones are available for purchase in the US and fans can buy them directly from the Google store, or from carriers. The best offer comes from Verizon, which sells the handsets with no carrier lock and which allows customers to save $300, if they trade in their old phones.
T-Mobile was the first one to break the ice with a catchy deal, offering its customers unlimited data plans and a total of $325 off monthly bills. As a direct response, Verizon came with a better program, allowing fans to trade in their old smartphones and get up to $300 of trade-in value. However, the devices must be in a good cosmetic condition and functional, so not all of them will qualify for the trade-in program, as only the following devices will be accepted:
– Samsung Galaxy Note5;
– Samsung Galaxy S6;
– Samsung Galaxy S6 edge;
– Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+;
– HTC M9;
– iPhone 6;
– LG G4;
– LG V10.
Outside the program, Verizon sells the 32GB Pixel for $649.99 cash or with $27.08 a month over a period of two years. However, with the pay-back program, customers don’t actually buy the Pixel phone for only $350, as they receive the $300 as credit or a VZW gift card, which will be used to spend at Verizon.
We remind you that both the Google Pixel and Pixel XL come with Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box and they have the same internal configuration: a Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 821 chipset, a quad-core (2×2.15 GHz Kryo & 2×1.6 GHz Kryo) processor backed by an Adreno 530 GPU and 4GB of RAM. Also, there are two storage options of 32GB and 128GB, but none of them supports expansion. The share the same cameras: 12.3MP on the back with EIS, and 8MP on the front, but the Google Pixel is smaller (5-inch Full HD display) and has a 2770 mAh battery, while the Pixel XL is a phablet (with a 5.5-inch QHD display) that supports a bigger battery of 3450mAh.
