The Google Pixel 6 and Google Pixel 6 Pro have been around for a little while in Australia, officially launching back in 2021. Both devices now have newer iterations in the form of the Google Pixel 7 and the Google Pixel 7 Pro, so it’s worth asking – is the Pixel 6 series still worth buying?

We’ve taken a close look at what Pixel 6 plans the telcos are offering, and we’ve found that you’re probably better off with a Google Pixel 7 plan instead. We found that it’s actually cheaper to sign up to the Pixel 7 on a plan with Vodafone than it is to get the Pixel 6, and why wouldn’t you want to go with the newer, cheaper option?

If you still want either the Pixel 6 or Pixel 6 Pro, then you’re probably better off buying the device outright. This way, you’ll be able to pair the phone with a SIM-only plan, and there’s lots of cheaper options available than what you’ll find at Telstra, Optus or Vodafone. However, stock of the handset is starting to dry up, and we only recommend buying outright if you can find it on sale, at 15% off or more.

Noteworthy Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro deals

We don’t recommend you buy either the Pixel 6 or Pixel 6 Pro on a plan, however, these are the outright deals you should know about:

Vodafone has the best Google Pixel 6 Pro plan available, but we caution against taking it up, because we’ve found you can get the latest Pixel 7 Pro on a plan for the same monthly price. Whether you get the Pixel 6 Pro or the Pixel 7 Pro, we recommend pairing it with Vodafone’s AU$45 Small plan, as it’s the most affordable option available. It also comes with 40GB of data and access to Vodafone’s 5G network. 

Total cost over 24 months is AU$2,378.88

Optus and Telstra are the only two telcos stocking the Pixel 6 on their online stores, and Optus has the cheaper plan of the two. We don’t think getting the Pixel 6 on a plan is a particularly smart buy though, because you can get the newer Google Pixel 7 at Vodafone for a cheaper monthly price. Optus’ Small plan paired with Pixel 6 repayments will cost you AU$90.61 a month, while Vodafone’s cheapest plan matched with the Pixel 7 will cost you AU$86.62 each billing.

Total cost over 24 months is AU$2,174.64

Are there any cheap Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro plans?

No, we haven’t seen any cheap Google Pixel 6 or Pixel 6 Pro plans at the time of writing. In fact, we’ve found that you can get the newer Pixel 7 Pro on a plan for the same price as the Pixel 6 Pro. There’s even less reason to sign up for the Google Pixel 6, as you can get the latest Pixel 7 on a plan for cheaper.
