Pixel 3 Price Drop: Get It For Under $800

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:

Pixel 3
OS Android 10
Dimensions 145.6 x 68.2 x 7.9 mm
CPU Snapdragon 845, Qualcomm SDM845 (4×2.8 GHz + 4×1.7 GHz)
Storage 64/128 GB
Display 5.4-inch P-OLED Display
Resolution 1440 x 2960 (~400 ppi)
Battery 2915 mAh
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.
