It's probably safe to say the Pixel 3 XL
is not the most stylish high-end smartphone in the world, but if you can look beneath the surface and ignore that ghastly notch, you might be impressed by the buttery-smooth performance and stellar camera
of this 6.3-inch "pure Google" handset running the newest version of Android and guaranteed to receive three major (and timely) OS updates.
B&H Photo Video is now taking those markdowns to the next level, shaving a record-high $350 off the list price of a 128GB Pixel 3
XL for a limited time with absolutely no strings attached. To be perfectly clear, we're talking about a
particular 128 gig model, namely the one coated in a "not pink" color. You can get that digital hoarding-friendly unlocked bad boy at $649.99 instead of $999.99, and B&H will even throw in a complimentary Mint Mobile 3-month 8GB prepaid SIM card kit, which is normally worth 60 bucks on its own.
Obviously, you're not obligated in any way to use the heavily discounted Pixel
3 XL on Mint Mobile. You can take it wherever you want for GSM or CDMA activation, including AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon. In case you're wondering, the "Just Black" and "Clearly White" 128GB variants are currently available at $780 apiece after smaller price cuts of their own, while the cheapest 64 gig models are coated in "Not Pink" and "Clearly White", fetching $720 each.
That's right, you can buy a 128GB unlocked Google Pixel 3 XL at a lower price than a 64GB configuration at the time of this writing. Notch or no notch, that's a crazy good deal for Android purists unwilling to make the mid-range Pixel 3a
