The Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL are rarely discounted because the two phones are already pretty reasonably priced. Today, though, Amazon has the Pixel 3a XL in black at just $449, which is a price drop of $30.
That price is not available on the white or purple versions, and the you won’t find a similar discount on the regular Pixel 3a either (yet). Not sure why the deal on this color in particular, but someone at Amazon must have an extra bit of black 3a XL stock to get rid of.
Should you buy a Pixel 3a XL today knowing that the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL are around the corner? Well, they aren’t exactly phones in the same category, so, sure. The Pixel 3a line is a well-priced, solid line-up of phones that somehow charmed me into spending months with them, even as other higher-end devices sat on my desk asking to be used.
