If you follow Google's Pixel phones and are a fan of them, you probably know that buying one at launch is never a good idea. Google's shown that it can be extremely quick to offer steep discounts on its phones shortly after release, and we're seeing that yet again.

About six months after launching back in October, Google is now offering a $300 instant discount on the Pixel 4 lineup — bringing the baseline Pixel 4 (opens in new tab) down to just $499 and making the Pixel 4 XL (opens in new tab) $599.

Those are serious savings, and looking through the AC forums, it has some of our members talking about whether or not now is the time to finally pick up the phone.

Honestly, when buying tech, the waiting game can only benefit you. If you look at your phone, and you can say that you're perfectly fine with it, then stick with it until you see a device or features that feel like they have your name written all over it.

  • Should have been the retail price from the get go for what was offered. Did they really need the SOLI chip, huge gimmick!
  • I don't hate myself enough to buy a Pixel 4 at any price.
  • Nope I won't. It's just not good enough for me
  • Even at £300 off the Pixel 4 isn't good enough, and while the OnePlus 8 series is more expensive, they pound the Pixel 4 series into dust along with the older 7T series pounding the Pixel 4 series into dust as well as every other Android flagship.
