Buy Google Pixel on EE: Best Deals and Tariffs

EE has landed an ‘exclusive network’ partnership with Google that means no other operator will be able to sell the Pixel or Pixel XL in the UK. It’s not yet clear whether the deal is permanent, or for a limited time only, however.

You can buy the Google Pixel and Pixel XL in both black and silver with EE right now, with the network also selling the Daydream View VR headset in early November.

The Google Pixel is £9.99 with EE on a 24-month plan for £50.99 per month. That gets you unlimited minutes, unlimited texts, and 10GB of data.

Meanwhile, the Google Pixel XL is also £9.99 on a 24-month plan, but for a loftier £55.99 per month. That’ll net you the same unlimited minutes, unlimited texts, and 10GB of data.

If you pick up the phones on one of these 4GEE plans, you’ll also receive unlimited minutes, texts, and 500MB of data to use abroad in the European Union. And for a further £5 each month, you can upgrade to a 4GEE Max plan, which gives you access to EE’s fastest 4G speeds, as well as a free subscription to the BT Sport app.

“Pixel and Pixel XL are typical of a new generation of smartphones we’re seeing emerge that are built to take maximum advantage of advancements in 4G connectivity,” said Marc Allera, CEO of EE. “Google has long been known as an innovative tech brand and consumers can expect them to now become a new and exciting player within mobile following this move.”

Unfortunately, EE has confirmed to TrustedReviews that it won’t be selling the handsets on a SIM-free basis.

I've been a big fan of the Nexus line, with good specs at bargain prices.

Bought a 5X not so long ago for under 300 quid, so a bit sad looking at 600 quid. Did the world really need another iphone, Galaxy 7 level phone?

Any suggestions for where a previous Nexus man should look in the future...perhaps Oneplus?

The "Nexus Man" wouldn't go for a OnePlus. The point of the Nexus was timely updates and quality hardware for a lower price. Sure, you get decent hardware on the Oneplus, but they've only just released Marshmallow. That won't do for a ex-Nexus user.

True dat.

And so Nexus Man turns and walks off into wastelands, continuing his never ending search...
