Google Pixel XL may overcharge due to an Android 8.1 bug


Oh, and as a bonus, Google is tossing in an 18W USB-C rapid charger for free ($35 value).

Transaction must include a Pixel 2 XL phone.

As the company's sophomore smartphone effort, the Google Pixel 2 XL has generally been considered a success. This can potentially result in the Pixel XL overcharging, especially for those that use 3rd party chargers that may not have the safety features of the original. This will effectively knock the purchase price down to $650, which is also the cost of the smaller Pixel 2. From March 18th at 12 AM PT, and March 31st at 11:59 PM PT, consumers who purchase the newest flagship from Google will be eligible to receive $200 back as a statement credit through Google Store Financing, as long as the consumer has an account in good standing. If you're looking for more storage in the form of the 128 GB model, you'll find the price reduced from $950 to $750.

Google gives you $200 after two billing cycles as a statement credit. If you still have your heart set on a Pixel 2, or a Pixel 2 XL specifically, but have balked at the $850 price tag, then Google Financing now has a limited time offer for you.

We anticipate that the majority of customers will be taking advantage of this opportunity to purchase the Google Pixel 2 XL at a significant savings, but for those who would prefer the base Pixel 2, the deal for the free charter also applies. This is a deal to be excited about, as Pixels are certainly well-designed phones that many swear by.

Just make sure you choose the unlocked version!
