Google’s original Pixel XL is on sale for $250 at Woot this month, offering a bargain deal on a slightly old phone that still holds up fairly well.
Woot is selling the Pixel XL with 128GB of storage, too, which is a configuration that sold for $869 when it debuted in October 2016.
Google stopped selling the original Pixel almost exactly one year ago, and the phone is now technically outside of its guaranteed OS update period.
But last month, Google revealed that the beta for the next version of Android supports the original Pixel, which suggests that the phone will receive the final Android Q update when it arrives later this year.
That’ll extend the Pixel’s lifespan for at least another year before its software starts to fall out of date.
While the Pixel’s specs are now two years out of date, it’s not as though the phone doesn’t hold up.
