Originally priced at $ 849, the Pixel 2 XL dropped to $ 699 in October when Google released the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. But from now through New Year’s Eve, you can snag the 64GB model for $ 599, as Droid Life first reported. The smaller Pixel 2 is also currently available starting at $ 599, down from its original price of $ 649.
The promotion ends at 11:59 p.m. PT on Dec. 31, so if you want to take advantage of this sale don’t mull it over for too long.
The Pixel 2 XL earned an “excellent” rating in PCMag’s October 2017 review, and props for its “excellent battery life,” “terrific low-light camera performance,” “elegant Google software,” and more. On the down side, it does not have a headphone jack or microSD card slot, and there have been issues with the screen.
“While the 6-inch Pixel 2 XL has roughly the same power and hardware capabilities as the 5-inch Pixel 2, the XL has a better design and better performance. It also has the finest smartphone camera we’ve tested,” PCMag’s Lead Mobile Analyst Sascha Segan wrote at the time. “But its highly divisive display, the most hotly debated smartphone screen we’ve seen in years, means that this phone falls just short of our Editors’ Choice.”
The Pixel 2 also earned “excellent” marks for its “promising camera,” “fast processor,” and more.
