Lower than ever and ready to ship, Google wants nothing more than for you to start the new year with a Pixel
The Pixel 7 isn’t significantly different from the Pixel 6, but it didn’t have to be. The improved cameras, next-gen Tensor G2 chipset, and other refinements make it well worth the upgrade, especially at this price point.
Here’s a nice end-of-the-year surprise for you guys who missed out on all the great Black Friday and Cyber Monday smartphone deals: now you can get the Pixel 7 for over $100 off. The Google-made handset is one of ours favorite android phones from 2022, and at $485, it’s even cheaper today than during the big holiday sales.
This deal is specific to the 128GB Pixel 7 model, in the Obsidian colorway, although both the Lemongrass and Snow variants are also on sale. Those two go for a little more for $499, but if you’d rather your new smartphone doesn’t look like every other big plate out there, that $14 upgrade might be worth it.
Why you should buy the Google Pixel 7
As Apple fans know all too well, there can be something really special about a device when the same company is responsible for both the hardware and the software. There’s a certain magic to it – a synergy – and the Pixel 7 gives us a glimpse into Google’s vision for what makes an Android smartphone should to be. There’s no bloatware or third-party apps to uninstall, no blatant waiting times for software updates – it’s Android in its purest form.
The hardware is great too. The Pixel 7 has a beautiful and unique design, accentuated by the matte aluminum bar that wraps around the rear camera package. The screen is a 6.3-inch 90Hz OLED panel, and the combination of the new Google Tensor G2 chipset with 8GB of RAM makes for solid performance. Add to that the fact that the Pixel takes excellent photos and you’ve got yourself a flagship Android phone that’s priced much lower than the competition – even before today’s discount.
If there’s one caveat worth noting, it’s that the glossy glass back can be a huge fingerprint magnet, so you might want to consider grabbing one Pixel 7 cases. Otherwise, this is a great phone at a great price, and you should definitely grab one while you can. As with anything this time of year, shipping times can vary greatly depending on phone model and your location, but we can confirm that at least some users still have overnight shipping as an option.
