Deal: Save $500 on the Pixel 2 XL at Best Buy (Verizon models only)

Best Buy has a crazy deal on Google’s Pixel 2 XL, one that offers a huge discount on the flagship, but requires signing up with Verizon and paying the device over a 2-year period.

Although the Pixel 2 XL still sells for $850 outright in the United States, Best Buy offers the smartphone for just $350. However, the massive $500 price drop comes in the form of $300 worth of bill credits from Verizon and $200 Best Buy instant discount.

So, no, you can pay $350 upfront for the Pixel 2 XL and live happily ever after. Instead, you’ll have to sign-up and pay the smartphone over a 24-month …

Deal: Google Pixel 2 XL is $150 off in the US, requires activation on Project Fi

Now that Google stopped selling the Pixel and Pixel XL, the only flagships that customers can buy directly from the search giant’s website are the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. The situation will remain unchanged until later this year when the third-generation Pixel phones are supposed to make their debut on the market.

Still, fans of the Pixel series will have to wait quite a lot of time until the Pixel 3 arrives, so a deal on one of the current Google flagships may be a better idea. The Pixel 2 XL is now on sale on Project Fi and although you’ll be saving $150, you’ll still have to pay quite …

iPhone SE 2 could arrive in May with A10 Fusion but no headphone jack

The rumored iPhone SE 2 could be announced next month. Apple’s original iPhone SE saw an early 2016 launch, with the model being updated one year later with new storage variants. In recent times, however, a successor has reportedly been in the works and, according to a number of case makers, it appears Apple could launch the device as soon as next month.

Unlike previous rumors, the manufacturers present at the Global Sources Mobile Electronics show in Hong Kong don’t expect the new model to completely adopt the design language debuted on the iPhone X. Instead, the iPhone SE 2 will continue …

Huawei P20 Pro vs Pixel 2 XL vs Galaxy S9+ vs iPhone X: low-light camera shoot-out

Being what my colleagues would describe as a “photography aficionado” (a.k.a annoying camera geek), and someone who loved the 20MP monochrome cameras on the Huawei P9 and the P10, I was excited to learn that the Huawei P20 Pro will feature three cameras and a massive (for today’s smartphone standards) 1/1.7-inch sensor for better low-light performance. Not to mention the f/1.8 aperture, which albeit not the lowest f-stop number we’ve seen on a smartphone, is actually capable of capturing quite a bit more light than the competition, thanks to the increased surface area of the sensor.

So, …
