Pixel Pass introduces Google’s new way to buy its phones

Pixel Pass introduces Google’s new way to buy its phones

Many consumers, especially in the US, prefer to buy their phones from their mobile carriers, not really out of loyalty to the network. More often than not, it's the subsidies and financing options that soften the blow when buying a new and more expensive smartphone. Manufacturers have, of course, started offering such options to convince people to buy phones directly for them, and Google's new Pixel Pass takes that idea a bit further by putting Pixel 6 buyers knee-deep in its services for a long time.

Pixel 5a Google Fi sighting confirms name and price

Pixel 5a Google Fi sighting confirms name and price

While many have their eyes set on the more premium Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, Google will be getting its mid-range offering out of the way first. Considering how much it might have in common with the Pixel 5, however, it might not even be accurate to label the Pixel 5a as a mid-tier phone. Regardless of specs, however, it will be the price that will determine where it slots in, and, based on an early sighting on Google's Fi MVNO network, it definitely fits the bill.

Google Fi Pixel 4a subscription program doesn’t include Google Fi

New smartphones come and go every year, and every year the prices for these phones also rise higher and higher. There will always be room for what many call "wallet-friendly" phones, especially if they come with tempting financing options. That is what Google's MVNO business is offering by letting you buy a Pixel 4a and a protection plan with a two-year monthly subscription. Ironically, that doesn't include a Google Fi cellular plan itself.

Google Fi compatibility check: what you’ll be missing out on

After a prematurely published embargo, Google has formally acknowledged that it was expanding its Project Fi, now officially called Google Fi, MVNO service to more smartphones. Shockingly, that even includes more recent iPhones. But while it has indeed embraced more Android phones and iPhones, it isn’t doing it without prejudice. Fortunately, Google has provided a simple online tool to show you what features you won’t get unless you opt for a phone that’s fully supported on Fi.

Google Project Fi making its way to Samsung, OnePlus, iPhones

Google Project Fi making its way to Samsung, OnePlus, iPhones

Even before it started making its own smartphones, it was already a cellular carrier. Well, not exactly but Project Fi allowed Google to be an MVNO, piggybacking on T-Mobile's, Sprint's, and US Cellular's networks and offer a new take on carrier plans. But despite being in business for years, Project Fi hasn’t exactly outgrown its roots. That might soon be changing with a premature revelation of Project Fi’s expansion to Samsung Galaxies, OnePluses, and, surprisingly, iPhones.

Project Fi enhanced network rolls into beta: Here’s what it does

Today, Google announced some improvements coming to Project Fi, all in the name of bringing users "the best connection."

Moto X4 on Project Fi now comes in 64 GB option

On the hunt for an affordable “pure” Android phone with a hefty discount on Google’s Fi MVNO? Your only option to date would be 2017’s Moto X4 (the Pixel 2 doesn’t really count as “affordable”). The only catch was that Project Fi only offered the lower configuration for the Android One phone. More than a year later, Google is now offering the Moto X4 with more “gigs” to keep the smartphone alive on its Project Fi network.
