Verizon Pixel 2 XL at Best Buy is Now $500 Off

Verizon Pixel 2 XL at Best Buy is Now $500 Off

If you're in the market for a new smartphone, then it's absolutely worth considering the Google Pixel lineup of devices. Verizon, the Pixel 2's exclusive United States carrier, ended sales back in October upon the announcement of its successor. By moving both phones out of its store, Google can now focus on the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.

For a while it seemed like Google's intent might be to keep the two Pixel 2 variants around permanently, as a cheaper point of entry into Pixel ownership.

You can snag a refurbished version of Google's latest $900 Pixel 3 XL smartphone that was released just under six months ago for $522 - $378 less than the asking price for a brand-new device.

Now, just grab your Pixel phone and go to Settings System (or similar) and tap check for updates. "Apps using files in shared collections - for example, photo and video galleries and pickers, media browsing, and document storage - may behave differently under Scoped Storage", wrote Google in a blog post. There are also even more affordable Pixel 2 refurbs out there.

Google recently introduced Android Q beta software for users. Users who click on a link for the Pixel 2 are now taken instead to the newer Pixel 3. This is really innovative and luckily, Google has started rolling out the new Google Duplex feature in the U.S. to non-Pixel smartphones as well.

This is no April Fools: Google has removed the Pixel 2 listing from its online store, effectively ending sales of the reliability-challenged handset. Though the phones still have capable hardware, especially the camera. Like the Galaxy S10e, the Pixel 3a is expected to offer a more affordable way to get a current-gen phone, albeit with some compromises in specifications.
