The Offer

Our Verdict

I’d probably wait and see what other places offer before signing up for one of these deals.

I’m hoping for another Google Fi “travel on us” Pixel deal

last time around it happened during black friday although I think they quickly pulled that deal and replaced it with something far less

It wasn’t on black friday, it was when Project Fi became Google Fi on 11/28. Seems unlikely they’ll do that again – although I sure hope they do.

Any chance you’ll do a best deal post for the new pixel? I’ve been tracking it but still don’t know all the sales.

No free unlimited photos included? It looks like they just include 6 months of Google one.

Unlimited “high quality” uploads. So no more unlimited uncompressed photo uploads to Photos. And they nixed the ability for photos from Drive to be auto-uploaded to Photos a little while ago, too.

If it’s any consolation, the unlimited original-quality photos and videos you got to store last year will only last ~2 years, until 1/31/2022. After that date, new ones will be saved at high quality.

-No fingerprint reader
-No 4k60 (not necessarily a big deal for most, but a glaring omission)
-Smaller battery than the Pixel 3

This does not spark joy.

Where did the fingerprint reader go ?

Into the aether.

(No, seriously, it’s gone. No, I don’t know what Google was thinking, either.)

It was replaced with the new face scanning authentication method.

The irritating thing is that Google didn’t learn from all the privacy issues Apple was having with their face unlock implementation and decided to go all-in on it anyway.

Costs way more money to develop, implement, and repair the hardware when a software solution via the front-facing camera achieves the same goal. Apple learned this the hard way when they had overheating issues with their Touch ID. Not saying its better security or even in the best interest of the consumer, but its an obvious business decision.

I really like my little Pixel3 and its fingerprint sensor. Of course, I got it for about minus 300 bucks) I think, I’ll pass on this upgrade.

Can we preorder then cancel and get the $100?

No the $100 code is on a physical bookmark that ships with the device.

I’m currently using Google Fi and received an email offer for $100 of Google Fi service if I order a new Pixel. Since there are two lines on my Fi group account, that’s only about 1 month of service. I’d personally get more value out of the Amazon card. But I’ll hold out to see what Black Friday offers up.

Amazon card likely to arrive much sooner. My last Fi service credit took over 3 months to post.

I guarantee you would see a better offer during black friday.

Will be half off in less than 8 months.

Either give us 128GB standard storage or a microSD card. I’m NOT paying a thousand dollars just to get 128GB storage and a decent battery.

2800 maH battery on the smaller pixel. Regressive!

I know the screen on the $700 iPhone 11 isn’t as great, but apple iPhone is actually a better value, now. I cannot believe I just said that. Of course, file transfers still suck, but the rest of the phone is way more consumer friendly than the pixel 4.

Read an article that mentioned a pretty big security glare. Apparently you can unlock the phone while the person is asleep (Apple has an alertness check in their face id software they use to prevent this). From what I read it can be fixed with an update but pretty big omission by Google.
