The end is nye. The brilliant reinvention of Google's mobile phones is nearing the expiration of its shelf life. The Google Pixel will soon be no more.
Since the announcement of the Pixel 2, every major retailer has been trying to flog the last of its stock of the predecessor. Now all that's available on contract are refurbished deals for the Google Pixel.
It seems like a a bit of a shame we were hoping that the phone would simply drop in value as a cheap alternative to the Pixel 2, just like they have done on other usurped flagships such as the iPhone 6S and Samsung Galaxy S7.
But suddenly they're gone. And now that Pixel 2 XL is also available, it looks like the original Pixel XL is going the same way - there's hardly any deals still available for this once popular smartphone.
In the comparison chart below, you'll see the contract plans that remain for the Pixel XL and refurbished Google Pixels. And below that, we pick out some of the more attractive Pixel XL deals you can still get your hands on.

You've reached the bit where we round up all of this month's best Google Pixel XL deals - what's left of them! EE is now the only place flogging the fallen giant. These are its cheapest deals, but at this stage you'd be well advised to go for a Pixel 2 XL deal instead.
Google Pixel XL 32GB | EE | FREE upfront | Unlimited calls and texts | 3GB data | £37.99pm
You get the Pixel XL handset and a Daydream View VR headset absolutely FREE with this deal from EE.
