The Google Pixel 3 officially went on sale today where it will jostle for shelf-space against the iPhone XS, Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and Huawei Mate 20 Pro, among others. If you've already decided that this is the phone for you, you're going to want a cost-effective plan with a decent amount of data. Here are the best bang-for-buck plans from Telstra, Vodafone and Optus .
The following Pixel 3 plans are the most affordable with at least 10GB of data per month. There are a few cheaper options available, but to make the most of this device on a 4G network, you really can't skimp on the data.
Here's the best plans based on those caveats, ranked. (Click 'View Full Results' to see the full list.)
So which plan is best? Users on a budget should probably plump for Optus' $65 My Plan Flex 24-month leasing plan which provides 20GB total monthly data. (Including 10GB bonus data per month.)
For power users with deep pockets, go with the Vodafone Red Plus pan which comes with 60GB of data for $109.95 per month. Compared to Vodafone's $95 plan, this nets you double the data for just $15 extra per month.
If Telstra is your only option, the $99 Mobile Lease Plan is the way to go - it comes with 30GB data, a free Google Home Mini and the ability to upgrade to a new phone at the end of the lease period.
