Google Pixel XL may overcharge due to an Android 8.1 bug

Google Pixel XL may overcharge due to an Android 8.1 bug

To avail the promotion, customers will have to spread their payment for the Pixel 2 XL over 24 months, which is subject to credit approval.

If you have been on the hunt for a solid deal on the Google Pixel 2 XL, Google might have just the right one for you.

Google Pixel 2 XL has a price tag of $849 for the 64 GB model and $949 for the 128 GB model.


Do you plan on picking up a new Pixel 2 XL with these promos? The more frustrating part probably for some of the users is that while Google has already marked it as an issue with P3 status (although a Redditor said it should be P2), there has been no feedback from the tech giant since January. They are offering some good features hence the company can not reduce prices that will reduce their profit margin.

Google is also offering a free 18W USB-C power adapter if you buy a Pixel 2 XL. This is valid for short time. Once the transaction goes through, customers will be paying the full price of $35.38 per month for the 64 GB model and $39.54 per month for the 128 GB model in 24 months. This can potentially result in the Pixel XL overcharging, especially for those that use 3rd party chargers that may not have the safety features of the original.

If a phone has been on the market for nearly two years, it doesn't necessarily mean that all bugs have been eliminated or that it won't ever get new ones. When you get to the checkout screen, you should see a $35 credit to offset the retail cost of the charger. They believe that offering some good discount is better than investing huge amount in the advertisements.
