While the differences on paper are not abysmal, the change in design, camera and screen already make it worth opting for the new model . If you do not want to get so close to 1,000 euros, the Pixel 3 is a better alternative than the Pixel 2 XL , being a compact range cap for this same price, 859 euros.
At 859 we cannot recommend buying a Google Pixel 2 XL on Google , as we find better alternatives. However, as always thanks to Amazon, we can buy this terminal at a practically unbeatable price .
Less than 600 euros for the Google Pixel 2 XL
Amazon has the Google Pixel 2 XL for sale with Prime shipping for 589 euros. For this price it becomes the best possible alternative , and it is that it is little more than what a OnePlus 6 or a Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S costs, being these high-end terminals not premium.
The second best camera on the market, Android 9 with another two years of updates remaining, an impressive battery and a fluidity only surpassed by the third generation Pixel, the 2 XL at this price is a candy that you can not miss .
