Google made a huge change in their marketing strategy and the products they sell when they announced their flagship Pixel phones.
In the past, the Nexus phones were highly affordable Android devices that sold for less than $500 or so with even better discounts as generations passed.
With the launch of the Pixel and the Pixel XL phones, Google has joined the luxury smartphone manufacturer Apple by pushing the price of their phones all the way up to $700 and even higher. While it is being rumored that Apple is going to go much higher with the upcoming iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus by pricing them as high as $1000, Google has fallen prey to the discounted sales that most manufacturers do. They just can’t beat the Cupertino company yet, can they?
But, it’s all good news for buyers because you can now get pure Vanilla Android experience for cheaper price while getting a smartphone that has the best build quality and finish to it. The Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones have received some decent discounts making these phones more affordable than they used to be. As the company gears up to launch their Pixel 2 smartphones, the pricing has gone down on the existing models so as to deplete stocks and refill them with devices that sport much better hardware specifications.
The first deal is the one in which you can buy the Pixel flagship smartphone for a discounted price tag of $549.99. The storage space in this edition will be limited to just 32GB which could be a hindrance for some people but if you don’t have to store large chunks of data on your phone, it shouldn’t be a big problem especially considering the price of the device. For those who can’t compromise on storage, the Pixel phone 128GB edition is discounted to $649.99 and both these discounts reduce the original price of the phone by at least $100.
A bigger and better phone, the Pixel XL 128GB is available as part of the discount sale for about $719.99. The saving is amazing because you slash off a cool $150 off the XL model and it makes the phone sound more affordable than it used to be. Do note that in order to avail the special pricing, it is mandatory to use the discount code THRFTPXLN before checking out of the car. The refurbished Pixel 32GB edition sells for $355 which is the cheapest that you could get.
