Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL now have a 2-year warranty


Less than two weeks after releasing the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2
XL, Google announced that both smartphones now come with a 2-year warranty
worldwide. The announcement was made today by Mario Queiroz, Vice President of
Product Management at Google, and is of particular interest to US consumers.

 

While in other regions, including the European Union, most
phones already come with a 2-year manufacturer warranty, this is almost never
the case in the US
(that’s why LG is taking pride in offering 1 extra year of warranty for free).

The Essential Phone is free with a signed 2-year contract at Telus

While subsidized pricing has fallen out of favor in the U.S., the practice remains in other parts of the world. For example, Canadian carrier Telus is now offering the Essential Phone for $0 with a signed two-year pact. The cost of the required data plan starts at $95 a month. That’s right, the offspring of the father of Android, Andy Rubin, is free if you lock yourself up with Telus for a couple of years. The off-contract price of the phone is $1,050.

The steep drop in the pricing of the Essential Phone on contract would seem to dovetail with a recent report that claimed only 5,000 units …

Samsung’s entry-level Galaxy Tab E tablet made its debut in the United States last year. The slate was released with Android 5.1 Lollipop, but Samsung offered users an Android 6.0 Marshmallow update several months later.

Deal: Get the LG Watch Sport with a 2-year AT&T contract for free

The LTE-enabled LG Watch Sport is already available in the United States at various carriers (not Verizon, which canceled it). However, if you haven’t got the time or need to purchase one, now is your chance to make it right if you changed your mind.

AT&T has a promotional offer on the LG Watch Sport, which allows customers to get the smartwatch for as little as $0. There’s a catch though, as you’ll have to agree to a 2-year contract with the carrier if you want to snatch the LG Watch Sport for free.
