Ever since Google unveiled the Pixel and Pixel XL, those who were on the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X and were willing to make the shift but couldn’t due to the steep price of the Pixel phones have been calling for Google to unveil phones that are worthy successors to the Nexus pair.
While there is no chance that the Google Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X will see their true successors come into play, those who are still open to the idea of making the switch to the Pixel and Pixel XL have the perfect moment to do it.
Rather than pay $650 for the Google Pixel and $770 for the Pixel XL, you can now get your hands on the former at a mere $360 and the latter at a cool $480. These prices are even cheaper than what the original Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P were priced at when they launched back in 2015, where the former was valued at $379 for the base model and the latter came in at $499.
But as you can expect from such great deals, there’s a catch. Apparently, you need to be on Verizon in order to get your hands on these deals. Secondly, the giant carrier demands that you get either phone via its unlimited plan. This means that you’ll be paying $15 per month for the standard Google Pixel and $$20 per month for the Pixel XL, deals that will run for a period of 24 months.
In short, Verizon wants to tie you to the carrier for 24 months in order to get these deals, which is not bad if you are already a customer of the Big Red. In addition to getting these massive discounts on the Pixels, you still get to walk away with a free Google Home, but you need to buy this Home before July 5th in order to get the full refund of $129.99, which will come in the form a Visa prepaid card.
Before jumping into these deals, do make sure you visit the official Verizon website for a clearer picture of what you are getting into. Nonetheless, this should be the perfect time for Google Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X to make the switch to the new phone, unless they want nothing to do with Verizon.
