Amazon had one 64GB Pixel 4 model on sale today for a very limited time
With the Pixel 4 series launching this coming Thursday, for a brief period of time today Amazon had the 64GB Pixel 4 model in Clearly White on sale for $100 off. That took the price of the phone from $799 to $699, a 13% discount. But this was a very limited time offer. How limited? Let's put it this way; within hours this specific model was back to $799.

The Pixel 4 features a Google Glass 5 protected 5.7-inch AMOLED display that refreshes at a rate as fast as 90Hz for smoother scrolling and mobile video game animation. The phone is powered by the Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform and is equipped with 6GB of memory and 64GB/128GB of storage. On the back is a dual-camera setup including the usual 12.2MP wide camera (but with a larger f/1.6 aperture to allow more light in) and the new 16MP telephoto with a 2x optical zoom.  In front, there is an 8MP selfie snapper and a 2800mAh capacity battery keeps the lights on.

This year, Google added Motion Sense; this uses the company's own radar-based Soli chips to allow a swipe gesture above the screen to dismiss alarms, skip streaming content, and silence phone calls. Face unlock is the only biometric security feature on the phone and is used to unlock the device, open certain apps, and verify the user for Google Pay transactions. A future software update will make Face unlock more secure by allowing the user to require that his or her eyes be open in order for the facial recognition system to work.

One Pixel 4 model was priced with a $100 discount for a few hours on Amazon

The second generation of Night Shift is included with the Pixel 4 and it allows users to snap photos of the night sky by taking a series of exposures that add up to as long as 4 minutes in length. AI takes care of the unwanted trail of light from moving stars; the result is a breathtaking photo of the stars in the night sky. The next generation of the Google Assistant UI also debuts on the Pixel 4 and takes up less of the screen. In addition, the nuts, bolts, and brain of the Assistant is now on-device making the virtual helper faster to respond.

After the pricing returned to normal, the Pixel 4 pre-order pricing went back to $799 for the 64GB version and $899 for the 128GB variant. The Pixel 4 XL is priced at $899 for the 64GB unit and $999 for the 128GB model. Speaking of the Pixel 4 XL, the only difference between it and the Pixel 4 is the larger 6.2-inch AMOLED display, the QHD+ resolution (compared to the FHD+ resolution on the smaller unit), and the bigger 3700mAh capacity battery.

Amazon is giving away a $100 gift card with the pre-order of any Pixel 4 phone, and we should point out that the color options are Clearly White, Just Black and the limited edition Oh So Orange.

Kudos to those who were able to take advantage of the unexpected $100 discount, and while we know that the temptation is to be the first on your street or social circle to own one of the new phones, with the holiday shopping season right around the corner your best bet is to hold off on your purchase until Black Friday, Cyber Monday or afterwards. This is the strategy that you should employ even if you are interested in purchasing an older Pixel phone, a new iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro model or a pricey accessory like wireless earbuds or an expensive case.

Before anyone jumps and says discount it was to replace the $100 amazon gift card that wasn't offered. Pixel is still Android King.

Pixel Knights rise up! Tech YouTubers with the fake bias. Lg had wide angle lens for years now it's important causer the iPhone has it? Plus comparing iPhone 11 with a 720p screen to the pixel with FHD oled 90hz screen. Knowing apple played everyone with a simple name change of the cheaper iPhone.

The ultra wide angle lens just isn't something I use that often. I do use the zoom and take low light pictures and the pixel 4xl is working great for both. I'm so glad I don't have to use the awful fingerprint scanner my note 10+ had also. Sick of hearing that rant. The face unlock on the pixel is great and right to my home screen and works every time. So far I'm finding the battery life to be quite good also with the XL. The assistant is snappy also it makes a huge difference running it off the phone. This phone is much better then it is getting credit for.

Anyone on Verizon looking for a deal on the P4 or P4XL, check out the list of trade in devices that are all worth $450. It goes as fa as the Galaxy S4, original Pixel, LG V10 or G4. iPhone 5s or SE also worth that much. Not sure if the deal is still live, but check it out if youre interested. you don't even have to add a new line.

usually this comes accompanied with a installment plan though. I like to buy my stuff straight up.

I agree. I'm a believer in straight up too. But it was $350 better of a price than anywhere else and or a phone I'm never gonna even plug in again. I'm gonna just set it and forget it by putting the cost of the phone aside and they can take it. If i put the total aside on day 1, it'll be like i bought it and i can upgrade or switch phones whenever I feel like it. But, yeah, I'm usually a fan of upgrading by buying the device outright
