CHEAP: A Google Pixel 3 for $499 is a tasty deal… FEED ME
Pixel 3

Welcome to CHEAP, our series about things that are good, but most of all, cheap. CHEAP!

If you ask any tech reviewer about top camera phones out there, almost every one of them will mention Google’s Pixel 3. While other phones rely on two, three, or even four cameras, the search giant’s phone banks on a single camera and some insane AI wizardry.

In our camera comparison with the iPhone XS, Google’s phone came out on top, helped by its great image quality and features such as Night Sight and Super Res Zoom.

That’s why we think getting the Pixel 3 (64GB) for just $499 – down from $799 – is a stellar deal. The phone was released almost a year ago, but its spec sheet shows it’s built to last.


  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 845
  • Screen: 5.5-inch full HD display
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Rear camera: 12-megapixel
  • Front camera: Dual 8-megapixel cameras (wide-angle and standard)
  • Battery: 2,915mAh 
  • Software: Android 9.0 Pie

Apart from the camera, you can rest at night easily with the latest software updates and security patches. As we saw in a recent report, it’s often an ignored aspect of the phone.
