    Best Buy is selling Geek Squad Certified refurbs of the Pixel 2XL (64GB) Black for $499. This is the Verizon model (which definitely works on other carriers) but can be purchased outright with no contract.

    I am contemplating a purchase as its the cheapest way to find a P2XL anywhere (even Swappa) that is backed by a limited warranty.

    Just an FYI

    Unfortunately, the 128GB version refurb is a full $200 more.

    Pixel 3 XL will have new internals of course but at least the 2XL doesn't have the worlds ugliest notch on it.

    Now I still would rather not have it lol but I don't mind it to the point that I'm not going to buy a phone just because of it. Your right tho if it is going to have it I rather have it small more like the essential

    Notch is not a big deal for me either. I just may pull the trigger on this as it has a 90 day warranty.

    On the flip side, I'm curious to see what a mint condition 128s will go for on Swappa after Oct. 4.

    Yeah....probably should sell my 2XL before October and use a back phone while I can still get a decent price for it. I almost see no reason to upgrade except for the newness factor.

    And for a mere $499 you can purchase a Pixel 2 XL, duct tape it to the back of the One+ 6T and have a Verizon-capable device! Sweet!

    No, we should definitely substitute midrange devices which cost $143 more than getting a 10 month old flagship. Even if refurbished, the flagship is almost always going to win in the quality department and because it's a better device AND cheaper, there's no question at all on which is a better value.

    Also, that is a concept video and has no basis in reality in any part of it.

    This is a concept video, and going by the OnePlus track record, they're not the ones to cram the latest top-of-the-line tech into their device (outside of the Snapdragon).

    I don't see 3 cameras in the 6T, nor an in-screen fingerprint sensor, removable battery, or even a moving FF camera. Realistically: perhaps wireless charging, current IP standard, and some type of hybrid material that is more durable than the glass back.

    100% disagree. What makes you say that? Do you think the OnePlus 6 is every bit as good as the Galaxy S9+? To me it looks exactly like a midrange device, albeit one that uses a high end SoC and also adopts a few high end components that look good on a spec sheet, while taking major shortcuts for the user experience in other areas. Also, we're talking about the OnePlus 6T, which I would make the exact same argument for ... except that argument would be based entirely on the experience of the 5, 5T and 6 ... since we know exactly nothing about the 6T so far. Logic says though... since OnePlus has never made a proper flagship, we don't have any reason to believe that they're going to in the form of the 6T. Is it possible? Sure.

    The 1+6 doesn't compete with the big boys in several factors, such as display, camera, features, nor price. It is a mid range device, even though it may not feel like it when using it since it's internals and fluid UI are competing with the best.

    It's the company flagship device #1
    It has gorilla glass 5 which midrange phone don't have, also the newest chip and 8 gig of ram which midrange device again don't have storage starting at 64gb a camera that's on par with the latest flagship plus 4k video
