Google hit a homerun with its Pixel 3 family, and if size matters to you, the Pixel 3 XL is an exceptional phone with a large display. It also takes superb photos, excelling particularly well in low light environments. As with most flagship phones, the Pixel 3 XL costs a pretty penny, though you can save $300 off the MSRP of the 128GB model right now.
The Pixel 3 XL comes in two capacities—64GB and 128GB. Normally the latter sells for $999. However, B&H Photo has it on sale for $649.99 today, with free shipping. Depending on where you live, you may be able to avoid paying sales tax up front (technically you're supposed to report online purchases on your taxes when the added fee is not tacked on).
There are three color options, and the version that is on sale for $649.99 is the Unlocked, Not Pink model. That is quite the bargain for what remains a high-end handset. As a refresher, specs include...
- 6.3-inch QHD+ OLED at 523 ppi
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor
- 4GB RAM
- 128GB onboard storage
- Dual 8-megapixel front cameras (wide-angle and normal FoV)
- 12.2-megapixel rear camera
- 802.11ac + Bluetooth 5.0
- 3,430 mAh battery w/ 18W fast charging + Qi wireless charging
- Android 9.0 Pie
Check out our review of the Pixel 3 XL for a full analysis, but summed up, it's an excellent phone with a great design, stellar camera, and strong overall performance. It's also front in line for new Android builds, as they are released (meaning it will be among the first to receive an Android Q update when it comes out).
To get the Pixel 3 XL for $649.99, just follow this link. Alternately, Google has marked down all Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL models by $200, in case you'd prefer a different color option or the regular Pixel 3.
It's not unusual to see these types of sales when new models wait in the wings. In this case, Google is expected to launch its Pixel 4 family before the end of the year, though probably not before October, which is still four months away.
