If you are on the hunt for an Android smartphone that is not overly expensive, Project Fi‘s promotion brings the Moto X4 and Pixel XL down to $250 and $580, respectively.
The Moto X4 normally goes for $400, while the Pixel XL sells for $700. The phones are automatically discounted during checkout, but make sure to activate Project Fi within 30 days of the device’s shipment. Otherwise, whatever discount you received will be charged to your Google Payments account.
Finally, the promotion goes through February 14 or while supplies last.
Motorola launched the Moto X4 in October 2017 with Android Nougat, though the phone received an update to Oreo in December. The Project Fi version of the Moto X4 is slated to receive timely updates, thanks to it being part of the Android One program.
The phone features a 5.2-inch display with 1080p resolution, dual 12 MP and 8 MP rear cameras, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 630 chipset, 3 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of expandable storage.
The Pixel XL launched in October 2016 and features a 5.5-inch display with 1440p resolution, 12 MP camera, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 chipset, 4 GB of RAM, and either 32 GB or 128 GB of storage. The phone is slated to get Android P and security updates directly from Google until the end of 2019.
The Moto X4 might be the newer phone, but both will get Android P and timely software updates. This boils down to whether the Moto X4’s hardware entices you more than the Pixel XL’s.
