Flash sale: Pixel 3 for $400, Pixel 3 XL for $450 with Financing or Project Fi Activation [also new Project Fi Unlimited Plan]

The official online Google Store is running a couple of flash sale promotions for a limited time. The offers get you the new condition Pixel 3 smartphone for $400 or the Pixel 3 XL for $450. One offer is with Project-FI activation, while the other offer is with a 24-month financing plan. The FI store offers a financing option but you can also pay the phone right away at the $400/$450 price. As usual with these financing offers, check the terms, conditions and restrictions before jumping in.

NOTE however that Google has officially announced October 15 in 2019 as their big reveal date for their new Pixel phone (presumable the Pixel 4 line), so factor that in your decision…

A lot of other phones came out since the Pixel 3 was announced in the Fall of 2018 and as you can see at the Smartphone Rankings at Dxomark the Pixel 3 have “dropped” in the charts, just outside the Top 15. It should go without saying that an aggregate test score is by no means a complete evaluation of a device’s performance so be sure to read up on things if interested….

The above offers are coinciding with the announcement of the Project Fi Unlimited plan for $70/month but it is about as unlimited as the big carriers as it slows down to 256kbps after 22GB during the month. If you prefer to continue at high speed, you can pay $10/GB on the traffic above 22GB.

The prices per line improve as you add lines/people to the plan. Two lines are $60/line/mo, three lines are $50/line/mo, four (or more) lines are $45/line/mo. The 22GB limit applies per individual line, not for the whole plan. Depending on one’s situation, this may or may not beneficial ~ eg adding a 2nd line instead of using a separate mobile hotspot. Or you can buy a data SIM and use a 2nd phone but on a single line (it will still eat up data but won’t pay for an extra line ~ for phone calls though, you have to hack it through Voice/Hangouts – it’s been a while since I did this, I don’t remember the details).

NOTE also that video streaming with Unlimited is down to 480p (DVD quality), but mobile hotspot is allowed (again within the aggregate phone-data + hotspot 22GB/line/month).
