Everyone loves the idea of a foldable phone designed by Google, but without a good Pixel Fold deal, you’re going to have to spend a lot of cash. Fortunately, those days may soon be over, as Best Buy is currently dropping an epic $400 off the innovative device, returning the price to an all-time low that we’ve only encountered once before (around Black Friday).
Since this foldable phone typically retails at a steep $1,799.99 for the 256GB version, this limited time discount presents a unique opportunity for folks who prefer to buy their smartphones unlocked. Best Buy is even sweetening the deal by throwing in a month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and three months of Google One cloud storage.
✅Recommended if: you want one of the most innovative foldable phones on the market for under the retail price; you enjoy using Google software; you like buying unlocked phones.
❌Skip this deal if: you prefer small phones; you’re eligible for a trade-in or deal from your wireless carrier; you’re shopping on a budget.
Google’s first-ever foldable phone, the Pixel Fold directly challenges Samsung’s Z Fold series’ dominance in this space by delivering a stunningly sleek design with flagship-level performance, some unique foldable software features, and years of software support.
The Fold is essentially a powerful tablet and a smartphone combined in a single device — which explains some of the cost — but the experience is not for everyone. If you need loads of battery life or you prefer a more compact phone, for instance, maybe look elsewhere (perhaps the Motorola Razr Plus). But if you’re a Pixel fan and you want to see what all the fuss is about, the Pixel Fold might just be the perfect introduction into a whole new world of foldable innovation.
