Deal alert: a Google Pixel XL for just $180 here!

Google's original Pixel phones are still pretty awesome by today's standards, despite the fact that they don't have a smart squeeze feature or an 18:9 display aspect ratio. They are, however, snappy, fast, with a distinct look, and still-awesome cameras.

And yes, we are raising that point because we just found a deal on the original Google Pixel XL — that's the larger, "phablet" model. Over at eBay, you can have one of these marvels in a refurbished state for $179.99. That's at least $10 less than most refurbished offers we can find at the moment. And sure, it's not ideal to buy a pre-used phone with some scuffs and scratches on it, but if $180 is all you have, you can be sure that the Google Pixel XL will beat any midranger you can afford for that kind of cash. The seller also allows for a 30-day no-questions-asked return, in case you don't like the condition your phone arrives in.

What do you get? The OG Pixel XL is powered by a Snapdragon 821 processor and 4 GB of RAM, which run the stock Android insanely fast. You will have access to Google's Daydream VR platform, and instant beta access to Android P and will get the final build when it's out. That'll be the last major Android build to visit the original Pixels, but you will still get monthly security patches for yet another year after that. Also — it still has a headphone jack.

$180 is a steal for that device. Especially when it still has unlimited picture storage until 2022. Not to mention VR applications are really go with daydream.

Okay so I bought this. Took the nano out of my iPhone 8 and went to town. This is very nice phone and felt as fast as the iPhone. Some of the apps opened faster (Facebook) and some of the apps were slower. But overall I thought you wold be grasping at straws to determine which was better. I think this has to do with the amount of ram on board. The Google AI is far and away better that Siri (like that needed to be said). You can say "Ok Google open Spotify and play Don Henley and it does it. Also I have a Google Home Pod---totally integrated.
