Commercially released almost two years ago, the stock Android-based Pixel 2 and 2 XL were kept around after the introduction of the Pixel 3 and 3 XL last fall, but in anticipation of the mid-range Pixel 3a and 3a XL, the classic 5/6-inch duo was officially discontinued by Google a few months back. That wasn’t necessarily bad news for bargain hunters in love with the purest form of the search giant’s industry-leading operating system, but following several killer deals and massive discounts, Verizon and Best Buy also pulled the plug.
Both 2017-released phones come in “scratch & dent” condition, which means you can expect a “moderate level of wear & tear including (but not limited to) scratches, dents, and dings. The good news is you don’t have to worry about the functionality of these incredibly affordable devices, which have apparently completed various rigorous tests confirming they are indeed in “full working condition.”
In addition to silky smooth software and blazing fast updates, the Pixel 2 and 2 XL have sharp OLED screens going for them (no distracting notches or holes), exceptional cameras, and water-resistant designs. Not bad for less than 300 bucks, eh?
