Save on some new old Google Pixel phones in Woot

Save on some new old Google Pixel phones in Woot

There’s been a lot of talk about new Pixel phones lately, with Google I/O last week showing off not just the new Pixel 6A but a brief glimpse at the upcoming Pixel 7 and 7 Pro. But Woot is showing love for some slightly older pixels with a sale event that will end later today. Somehow, Woot got phones that are still new in the box with full one-year warranties.

This includes the soon-to-be-replaced Pixel 5A for $429.99, the 2020 Pixel 5 for $449.99, and the 2019 Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL for $329.99 and $349.99, respectively. Now, yes, the Pixel 5A is not old and is still available for sale from Google. But who would expect that in 2022 there will still be a Pixel 4 available in the new box?

Now, if you feel tempted by the Pixel 4, beware that it’s not guaranteed to receive security updates after October 2022. So while you might be tempted to choose to mess with Google’s one-time attempt at face unlock and hand gestures with the Soli radar chip, the best value here is Pixel 5

Google Pixel 5 (unlocked)

Google’s 2020 flagship comes in one size, with a 6-inch OLED display and 128GB of storage.

Despite being the best of the bunch, the Pixel 5 is weird. Google has downgraded it from being a full-fledged flagship phone as in years past to a mid-range plus device. It has a modestly powerful Snapdragon 765G processor, along with some great features like a six-inch OLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate and wireless charging. It also came in the best color – sage green – which Woot has today for $449.99. That’s $250 off its original selling price, and it’ll still receive security updates until October 2023. Waiting two months to get the Pixel 6A might be a better move for some people, but that’s definitely not a bad value. Read our review.

Google Pixel 5A

The Pixel 5A might not pack a high refresh rate screen or a lot of bells and whistles, but the mid-range phone does the basics very well. It also comes with IP67 water resistance, great camera, and timely software updates.

The Pixel 5A is, in many ways, a re-housing of the Pixel 5 in a larger form factor (with a few features cut out to keep the price down). It has a larger 6.34-inch OLED screen, but only a 60Hz refresh rate and no wireless charging. It has the same Snapdragon CPU as the Pixel 5 and the same dual-camera system that complements the standard lens with an ultra-wide lens. Also, this larger size helps extend battery life. Woot has the 5A in one color—teal black—for $429.99. That’s only about $20 off the regular price, so it’s not a huge deal.

Compared to the Pixel 5, opting for the Pixel 5A instead gets you a headphone jack and security updates through August 2024. But then again, waiting for the $449 Pixel 6A to release in July will save you a phone with Google Tensor’s faster CPU and a promise of five years of security updates (not to be confused with feature updates). decisions decisions.

Google Pixel 4

Google’s 2019 Pixel 4 features a Snapdragon 855 processor, 6GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, IP68 protection, and Google’s intriguing Soli radar chip — while avoiding the fingerprint sensor for face unlock.

The Pixel 4 was a charming device (introduced in orange) at the time of its release, but its lackluster battery life makes it the least attractive phone on sale today. Woot sells the Pixel 4 for just $329.99 and the 4 XL for $349.99. Those are good prices, but keep in mind that these phones only promised to get five more months of security updates. Google will cut both in October 2022, so we only recommend that if you have a file Is that true A specific use case for that, such as matching your phone to your Dutch national team jersey at the World Cup (yes, we mean who – which specific).
