Google's Pixel 3 remains one of the best Android phones on the block. It also benefits from instant OS updates direct from Google. Thanks to a recent price drop, it's also very affordable with Telstra and Optus both selling it for under $800 on a wide range of plans. Here are the details.
When the Google Pixel 3 launched in 2018, it cost a hefty $1199. But as the adage goes, good things come to those who wait.
While a little old in the tooth, it can still go toe-to-toe with the current crop of smartphones; particularly when it comes to photography. Here are the specs:
|Dimensions||145.6 x 68.2 x 7.9 mm|
|CPU||Snapdragon 845, Qualcomm SDM845 (4x2.8 GHz + 4x1.7 GHz)|
|Display||5.4-inch P-OLED Display|
|Resolution||1440 x 2960 (~400 ppi)|
|Camera||Rear: 12.2 MP dual-pixel. Front: 8 MP (f/2.2)|
|Colours||Just Black, Clearly White, Not Pink|
Telstra and Optus have both cut the price of the Pixel 3 to under $800. You can get it from Optus for $756, while Telstra has it for $792.
On a 24-month plan, that works out to a saving of $18.45 and $16.95 per month on Optus and Telstra, respectively. Here are the available plans and inclusions.
If you're open to long-haul plans, you can also get the device on a 36-month plan. That bumps the monthly saving to $12.30 per month on Optus and $11.30 on Telstra. Here are the 36-month plans from both providers.
Google has finally unveiled its Android smartphones for 2018 - the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.
