Yeah you gotta call them. You can get a non-throttled postpaid unlimited plan for $45 if you talk to a supervisor.
Yeah, it’s like £423 or something. I just don’t see how it’s really relevant to my question since it’s not like I could just order one from US Costco?
If you're in this price range, consider the Moto G7 Plus.
My provider doesn't carry that phone unfortunately. I'm not paying out of pocket for my new phone, signing up for another two years gets me one for free. But they want me too sign up for bigger monthly plans for top tier phones.
Wait, do US contract phones work differently? Our tab system in Canada just spreads the payment of the phone over 24 months...
Yah that's true. I guess the saturation/pop from OLED is appealing...
Thanks for the information and details. Unfortunately, the Samsung s10e is £669 over here in the UK. So out of my price range.Can
I bought my wife a Galaxy S9 with a ding on the side for £270 on eBay.
Put a case on it as usual and it’s just a lovely looking S9.
Can get a beastly Huawei Mate 20 -Pro for around £400 on eBay.
For £50 more than the £399 for the 3a, you can get an S10e with a way better cpu/gou, wireless charging, best in class display, amazing build quality, reverse wireless charging, no big forehead/chin, more ram, more storage, better speakers, more features overall while retaining more snappiness than stock android on an underpowered cheapo phone will provide etc etc etc
Much better value imo.
Only way I see these phones actually being worth buying for what you can actually have with the same money, is to wait until they reach eBay level prices. Buying new makes no sense imo unless you absolutely neeed to have a pixel phone
You can get a brand new S10e on eBay right now for £458.
ehh kinda dubious of the whole no manufacturer warranty thing, not gonna lie.You can get a brand new S10e on eBay right now for £458.
If you really look around there are just way better things to spend the money on for the price.
Then just pay £30 more than the cost of a 3a XL and get a brand new one with the two year warranty and get a better phone in almost every way.
Storage also irrelevant for me but I don't see how the RAM is a nonissue. What the 4gb Pixel 3a feels like in 2022 is anyone's guess!signal good point but personally the 64gb is a non issue for me since you still get free unlimited storage for photos/videos at high quality (Pixel 3a/3a XL) with Google Photos. I have a 64gb Pixel 2XL and I'm currently at 46% used up storage. So storage is a non issue for me and also wasn't when 32gb was the norm for a bit before we jumped to 64gb so on.
I really don't see where people use up all of their storage space on phones nowadays if they use Google Photos. If it's apps then that's a fuck ton of apps.
In regards to RAM, also a non issue.
True. We won't know if and how Android S will cripple it until then. Naturally, most people upgrade by 3 years so there's that too.
That IS a good price for one of those... But it's still £100 more than the entry level Pixel 3A - which is the one I'd buy it I were in the market - and, at £500 near enough, I'd be wondering if I should maybe just get a OnePlus instead. Sure, you're missing out on some features, but it has a better processor, and I'd definitely prefer the software too.Then just pay £30 more than the cost of a 3a XL and get a brand new one with the two year warranty and get a better phone in almost every way.
Tips:Just picked up a Pixel 3a, loving it so far. Slowing learning everything as I've been a iOS user for ages and transfered over to this kit from a iPhone6.
A quick question, I did lots of research prior to buying it and quite a lot of the reviews / impression I read and viewed showed the peoples screen with a wallpaper depicting a cartoon style image of themselves. As seen below, anyone know how to find these or create them?
Can't see any options or settings to do this.
Assume they weren't made especially for the reviewers by Google, because people like Marques Brownlee didn't get one sent from Google, as he ordered one himself once the store was live.
Plus any tips or tricks for a newbie moving from iOS to Android would be grateful :)
Appreciate the time spent providing these great points. Really useful thanks :)Tips:
- First of all, get a Google Account. You can create a Google account with your current email. For example, if you have an @outlook.com or an @icloud.com or an @yahoo.com email, you can use those as a Google account, but I recommend you to get a Gmail account. It has better integration into the ecosystem.
- Another useful tip. Use Google Photos. Google Photos automatically backup all your photos and videos to the cloud, for free. Unlimited storage. I have all my photos and videos there. Every time you change phones, every photo and video will be there. They do not charge for photos/videos backups like iCloud.
- In the Google Photos app, there is an option to automatically delete all the photos and videos from your phone that already have cloud backups; that way you never run out of space.
- Your Google account will sync your notes in Google Keep, Contacts, Photos, Videos, Drive, Chrome history/bookmarks/passwords, calendar, docs, books. Just log in in any device and everything will be there.
- All your app icons will be stored in the app drawer, so your homescreen can be as clean as you want. Drag the icons to the homescreen and create folders to organize everything like you want (in iOS you don't have an app drawer).
Well another issue is that the phone gets 3 years of updates as a selling point but who knows if 4gb will be enough for 2022 Android.as far as "Is 4 GB RAM good enough?"...
I've had my XL 2 for a little over a year now and there is zero slowdown. I read people had issues with Pixels slowing down but I have not experienced this. I don't know if it was possibly a software thing they fixed. I did have to reset my last phone (Galaxy S7) after a year due to slowdown.
it'll be fine. It's possible it might not be the best multitasking phone, like tons of apps and chrome tabs open but if you're fine with some light app mgmt it's fineI just ordered the 3a XL and you guys are bumming me out. :( I'm coming from a Nexus 5 so I felt like it would be a huge upgrade, but people saying stuff like 4gb of RAM won't scale well to the future makes me a bit uneasy. SOMEONE REAFFIRM MY DECISION AS A GOOD ONE. ;___;
In Canada with tax and a case this phone was already almost $800, I figured it was as good a deal as any compared to most phones which go for well over $1k without taxes outright.
I am still confused about the trade-in plan. So you gave them your Pixel. And you gave them $138. And your (say) $50 per month bill becomes $50 - ($400/24)?
I bought a pixel on amazon for 97, tax was 25, and in-store upgrade fee was 20. If you already have a pixel, your out of pocket would only be for the tax if you did it online since there's a free shipping code.I am still confused about the trade-in plan. So you gave them your Pixel. And you gave them $138. And your (say) $50 per month bill becomes $50 - ($400/24)?
Edit: Wait, that doesn't make sense. If they are giving you $400 for that phone as credits, why do you have to pay anything more than the tax on the phone?
So when do you pay the $400 for the phone?
