As affordable as the Pixel 4a is, normally starting at $350 in a 4G LTE-only variant and $500 with built-in 5G connectivity, Android purists can spend even less on a decent Google-made phone in excellent working condition if they're patient and know where to look.
Pixel 4 high-ender, for instance, is on sale right now for as little as $259.99 in a single 64GB storage configuration and your choice of black or white colors. We're obviously talking about refurbished units here, but Woot is ready to vouch for the "full working condition" and "minimum 85%" battery capacity of these ultra-low-cost unlocked devices powered by a blazing fast Snapdragon 855 processor.The 2019-released
In comparison, the Pixel 4a packs a decidedly modest Snapdragon 730 SoC, not to mention that the "standard" Pixel 4 comes with not one but two rear-facing cameras in tow, as well as a smooth 90Hz P-OLED 5.7-inch display. Granted, the 2,800mAh battery size is... not ideal, which is why stock Android-loving bargain hunters should also consider 2019's mid-end Pixel 3a and 3a XL, at least today.
The smaller 5.6-inch model will set you back a measly $144.99 for the next few hours only with 64 gigs of local digital hoarding room, a Snapdragon 670 chipset, and a 3,000mAh cell on deck. The jumbo-sized 6-inch Pixel 3a XL, meanwhile, can be yours at $159.99 with the same reasonably powerful processor and a much heftier 3,700mAh battery under the hood.
Just like the aforementioned deeply discounted Pixel 4, these super-affordable mid-rangers are on sale in grade A refurbished condition, but if you absolutely must own a brand-new, unused, unopened, and undamaged handset, there's also a 3a XL at $229.99 with T-Mobile and Sprint support only you may want to take into consideration.
Last but certainly not least, the venerable Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL can be purchased today only starting at $149.99 and $169.99 respectively with Snapdragon 845 processing power in tow. All these devices, brand-new units included, are backed by a 90-day Woot limited warranty, eclipsing a lot of modern low and mid-end smartphones in the sub-$300 and sub-$200 price brackets in terms of their value for money.
