If you want a deal on an incredible smartphone and one that is really built for travel, check out the Google Pixel 2 XL! It is on sale and this is your last chance to ever buy it new.

I have written many times about the Google Pixel 2 series of phones. They are really incredible and a great match with the awesome Google Fi plan. Not only that, they share a lot of what makes the latest Pixel phones (Pixel 3) great as well.

Last Chance to Buy the Google Pixel 2 XL New – at a Great Price, Too!

Well, Google has seen fit to put the Pixel 2 out of the production family. That means that, once retailers sell out, you will no longer be able to buy the Pixel 2 new.

Google stopped selling the phone directly so that means that your only chance at getting this phone, new, is from retailers like Best Buy.

Fortunately, BestBuy still has an amazing deal on the phone. The cost is $399 brand new and ready to go (no activation required).

Sure, the new Google Pixel 3 has been out now for about 5 months and it is a great phone. In fact, many of you may have gotten it during the tech deal of the year last year. But, even with its current sale, the Google Pixel 3 XL still costs $699 brand new.

Fortunately, a lot of the great Pixel tech is still available in the Google Pixel 2 phones. That includes things like Call Screening, free VPN coverage, the awesome Duplex, and more. It also includes the amazing NightSight that allows the Google Pixel cameras to capture way more detail in lowlight than any other smartphone camera.

The Google Pixel 2 XL Deal

So, now that you know all of that, here are the details on the Google Pixel 2 XL deal! Believe it or not, it is available only from Best Buy and, unlike the Pixel 3, it comes unlocked for use on other carriers even though it says it is for Verizon. This means you can use it on Verizon, Google Fi, T-Mobile, AT&T, and many others around the world.

Oh, and one more tidbit – photos you upload to your Google Photos/Drive from this phone will have unlimited space for originals until 2020! Nice way to get cloud storage for photos without paying for it!
