UK deal alert: Get a 128GB Google Pixel for just £22.99 per month
When we reviewed the Google Pixel last year, it was pretty hard to find fault with it. It was pretty hard to find fault with it, that is, until your eyes glanced down to the price tag. A price tag that read £599. This was before the impact of certain events was in full swing, and now £599 seems relatively cheap, what with the Sony Xperia XZ Premium, Samsung Galaxy S8, HTC U11 and LG G6 all retailing for north of £650 when they launched.
A year is a long time in the life of phones, and while Google is on the verge of launching the Pixel’s follow-up, the original is still an excellent handset with plenty of life yet. And now you can pick up the 128GB model for a non-wallet busting £22.99 per month via Mobiles.co.uk. For that, you have to pay £25 upfront, but that still comes to £576.76 over the 24-month lifespan of the contract – a fair bit cheaper than its original RRP of £699 (this is the 128GB model, after all).
To get that price, you’ll need a voucher code: be sure to type in “PIXPAYDAY” at the checkout. The deal gives you unlimited calls and texts, coupled with 2GB of data via EE.
If that doesn’t feel like it’s enough data for you, scroll down a little further, and you’ll see an equally competitive deal from Vodafone. You’ll pay £27 per month, but get 4GB data alongside the unlimited call minutes and texts. This one has a £25 upfront cost, but that can be hacked down to £15 using the offer code “AUGPAY10” at checkout, bringing the total to £673 over the length of the contract.
However you paint it: this is a good deal. For reference, the 32GB version of the phone still goes for over £500 on Amazon – and that requires you to find a data deal to match your new pride and joy.
And what a joy it is: the Pixel is a great handset with the very best camera in the game. It’s no slouch, either, with a Snapdragon 821 processor and 4GB RAM. One Achilles heel is its lack of microSD card slot, but that shouldn’t be a problem with the 128GB model on offer here. Given it’s a Google phone, you’re guaranteed to get the Android updates first too – starting with Android Oreo.
Yes, the Google Pixel 2 is just around the corner, but if you want a super Google-flavoured handset right now for an appealing price, this is pretty hard to beat.
