Despite all the issues the phones have had, the most significant drawback is their steep price tags. Turning on the always on feature will allow the fingerprint scanner on the Pixel 2 XL to recover its previous speed.
Some Google Pixel 2 XL users are not happy about what happened to their handset following the update to Android 8.1 earlier this month.
Buyers in the U.S. will be able to get discounts of US$50 on the smaller Pixel 2, taking the price tag from US$649 to US$599 for the 64 GB variant, and from US$749 to US$699 for the 128 GB model.
The offered discounts are applicable to all available colors for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.
Now might be the flawless time for customers to buy the Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL from the Google Store, to take advantage of the discounted prices.
Of course, this is just wishful thinking.
The Google Store is selling the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL at discounted prices for the first time since Google's flagship smartphones were released, offering up to $75 in savings. We've only seen real discounts coming to the original Pixels after the launch of the Pixel 2s and even though the two are over a year old, the company only slashed $100 off the original price.
It is unknown how long this discount will run, but it is definitely a good time to pick up a Pixel.
Do you think Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL prices should have dropped to between $400 and $600 already, especially after the issues the phones have had since their debut in October? Be sure to let us know!
