The best Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL deals in June 2019

So you want to grab some Google Pixel 3 deals? We don't blame you, not only is this one of the best camera phones out there (the Huawei P30 Pro still has that accolade) but it is also super cheap again after a massive price drop.

Much like the devices we are now seeing from companies like OnePlus and Xiamoi, Google Pixel 3 deals are great alternatives to the big ruling three - Samsung, Apple and Huawei.

Having only hit the shelves in November, to say we've been pleasantly surprised by Pixel 3 deals on contract would be a massive understatement. It's now commonplace to see tariffs with cheap monthly bills and getting big data deals for less than £600 over the two year term is an easy feat. Even with the Google Pixel 4 and Google Pixel 3a deals widely available, we're still very much in love 

For example, you'll see deals as cheap as £18 a month floating around now, albeit with a pretty large upfront cost. Forget paying over the odds to some 'charming' salesman in a high street store - you won't find better Pixel 3 deals than on this very page.

So what's it like then, the Google Pixel 3? Well take a look at our review and you'll see that we like it - A LOT. In all honesty, it isn't massively different to its predecessor. Those large bezels remain on the regular version - although they've now disappeared for the Pixel 3 XL - but the screen has increased to 5.4 inches and the resolution is cranked up to 1080 x 2160. And it seems a lot of effort in the design has gone into improving the already market-leading cameras. We can't think of a smartphone with a better main snapper.

Pixel 3 deals: today's best contracts in the UK

Google Pixel 3 | EE | £15 upfront | 2GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £20pm
We really don't think we've ever seen a Google Pixel 3 deal this cheap. If you apply our code 10OFF at the checkout you will just need to pay £15 upfront. Following up the cheap bills theme is the £20 a month costs you'll be paying. You do only get 2GB of data but when you're paying so little that's an easy sacrifice to make.  Total two year cost is £505

Google Pixel 3 | Vodafone | £40 upfront (with 10OFF code) | 5GB data | Unlimited minutes and texts | £24pm

To get such a high-tech camera you do have to take a bit off a hit when it comes to battery life and the processor but the photos coming out of this phone look so good it's easy to forget about that.

SIM-free Google Pixel 3 deals

This is where the prospect of the Google Pixel 3 becomes very interesting indeed. The company has been very smart in pricing its flagship phone cheaper than what you'll pay to buy the latest Samsung Galaxy or iPhone. So a brand new smartphone that's cheaper than its nearest competitors...we see what you're doing there, Google.

At least that was the idea in previous years, but the Google Pixel 3 SIM-free price has really shot up this year. But right now you can get the device for around the £650 mark that puts it in the same kind of echelons as the Samsung Galaxy S9. We are starting to see prices drop into the realms of the low £600's but we don't know how long that will last. While a lofty £869 for the Pixel 3 XL is competitive when compared to iPhone XS, but around the same as Samsung's awesome Note 9.

If you have the spare £700-odd available to spend, and know that you just want to buy the phone straight away outright, then we strongly suggest that you take a look at our best SIM only deals page as well (unless you're already sorted for a SIM, of course). But on this particular phone, going for a handset and SIMO may not actually save you anything over a contract.
