Although we realize Android purists must have been hoping to see this year's Pixel 4a, 4a 5G, or Pixel 5 5G listed among the top Cyber Monday phone offers
available today, we're afraid you'll need to settle for an older Pixel 3a or 3a XL if you want to save more than a few bucks on a Google
Discontinued by the search giant itself almost five whole months ago
, the 2019-released mid-rangers live on at third-party retailers like Amazon and B&H Photo Video. Unsurprisingly, both of those are selling the two Snapdragon 670-powered handsets at special prices for the next few hours, but at least if you like your stock Android devices nice and compact, you should take your business to B&H without any hesitation.
Normally up for grabs at $399 in an unlocked variant, the 5.6-inch Pixel 3a
can be had for just $239 right now in a single "Purple-ish" hue. That equates to a massive 40 percent price cut, making this relatively powerful and well-reviewed phone
cheaper than ever before, as well as a solid $110 cheaper than the 4G LTE-only Pixel 4a.
Meanwhile, Amazon is currently charging $279 for the same device in a "Clearly White" flavor after a slightly humbler $120 (or 30 percent) markdown. As far as Pixel 3a XL Black Friday deals
are concerned, B&H has the phone for just $299, whereas Amazon is charging $65 extra.
Once again, B&H Photo Video only has "Purple-ish" models in stock, with Amazon taking care of both "Clearly White" and "Just Black" orders.
The Pixel 3a XL
is obviously larger than the Pixel 4a
but smaller than the 6.2-inch Pixel 4a 5G
, at 6 inches. Unfortunately, the phone might feel even bigger in your hand, sporting a relatively thick "forehead" and an absolutely massive "chin." The OLED display settles for a traditional 60Hz refresh rate, but the exquisite 12MP rear-facing camera and fast-charging 3,700mAh battery make the 3a XL worth every penny.
Naturally, the smaller variant comes with a smaller 3,000mAh cell on deck, but otherwise, the two handsets are pretty much identical, sharing the same 4GB RAM count, 64 gigs of internal storage space, and above all, the same stellar software support guaranteeing major updates until May 2022.
