All of the attention may be on the Samsung Galaxy S9 right now, but if you’re after a top-tier phone with a purer approach to Android in the UK then you’ll want to check out this incredible Google Pixel 2 XL deal.
The larger of Google’s second-generation Pixel devices launched for £799 last year, but we’ve slowly seen the price drop over time.
The latest deal from Carphone Warehouse brings the Pixel 2 XL down to just £629 for the 64 GB model and £729 for the 128 GB variant. By comparison, the official Google store is currently running a promotion on the Pixel 2 range which drops the Pixel 2 XL to £699, so that extra £70 off from Carphone Warehouse is a lovely additional discount.
For that price, you’re getting a SIM-free phone that is compatible with all UK networks in either Just Black or Clearly White. If you need a refresher on Google’s flagships, be sure to check out our in-depth written review or watch the video review below.
While a whopping £170 overall saving may be enough to tempt some buyers, there’s actually a way of dropping that price-tag even lower by picking up a SIM only plan at the same time.
For example, you can grab a 1 month SIM only contract on the O2 network for £18 a month with 1GB of data, 1000 minutes, and unlimited texts in a bundle offer with the Pixel 2 XL and drop the handset’s price to £589 (saving another £40). As it’s just a 1 month contract, you can also cancel said deal almost immediately and switch over to whichever network or plan you like!
If you take out a 12 month SIM only contract instead, the price plummets even further to as low as £529 on select tariffs – that’s £270 off the Pixel 2 XL’s RRP!
