In what’s perhaps the most significant deal on a Google Pixel 3 thus far, Best Buy is now offering one of this year’s best smartphones at a $400 discount as part of Black Friday.

For those who’ve been holding off getting a Pixel 3 but are dissuaded by its $800 price point, now’s the absolute perfect time to nab the device once and for all. The smartphone sports one of the best cameras in the game, and not only that, but it’s also a proven beast when it comes to performance. Plus, it’s possibly the purest Android experience users are ever going to get from a smartphone.

Insane Pixel 3 Black Friday Deal From Best Buy

Best Buy is offering Verizon versions the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL with the savings cut immediately. By contrast, Verizon is also offering a $400 discount but it’s spread out over 24 months and requires a contract, as The Verge discovered. Needless to say, Best Buy’s deal is the better one to get especially for those who don’t want to be chained to a contract.

Best Buy’s offer also means the balance of the phone’s price goes to the user’s Verizon account. They can pay it off immediately or switch to another carrier if so they prefer. This deal will be available both online and in-store, according to a representative from Best Buy.

Get It Unlocked From Google

It’s worth noting that the device is still a Verizon Pixel 3, which means it requires a $30 activation fee to unlock the phone. If that’s too much, customers can also opt for an unlocked version of the Pixel 3 from Google for $150 off or an unlocked Pixel 3 XL for $200 off. The deals begin on Thanksgiving.

Verizon Black Friday Deals

Verizon is also offering $400 discounts on a number of smartphones, including the Samsung Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9 Plus, Galaxy Note 9, and the LG V40. These, most notably, represent the best crop of smartphones this year. They combine top-tier specs, amazing cameras, and topnotch performance. Again, however, Verizon’s discount requires a contract and is stretched over two years, which some users would probably balk at.
