Written by Charlie

Here is a great deal to get one of the best travel phones on sale! The Google Pixel 2 XL is available new for just $399 and still has one of the best smartphone cameras around!

Even though Google Fi is now available on most smartphones (including iPhone), the Google Pixel lineup of phones still present some of the best in smartphone photography and capabilities. I mean, you know Google had to feel confident with their Pixel phones to allow other phones to be supported with the Google Fi program!

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.

This is a really good deal since the lowest I had seen it before was for $404 – and that was a refurbished price! This $399 price gets you the phone brand new and it is a really nice smartphone with a large screen and many great features, courtesy of Google’s constant improvements in artificial intelligence.

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!
