Best Google Pixel 5 Deals: Where to buy Google’s flagship

While Google is gearing up to launch the much-awaited Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, the Google Pixel 5 has been out for a while now, and it’s an impressive piece of tech for the price. In our Google Pixel 5 review, Adam Conway mentioned: “If you’re looking for a fantastic software experience with good performance, the Google Pixel 5 is definitely worth looking at.” The mid-range chipset may scare off those wanting the bleeding edge, but this flagship runs better than expected and comes at a more affordable price.

Offering a 6 inch, OLED screen with a 90Hz refresh rate and 8GB RAM, you’ll be able to watch anything you like and it’ll be smooth and stutter-free. You’ll even be able to play games without any issues. Couple that with impressive front and rear cameras, and you’ll have a device that can stand with the best, while only costing $699.

Of course, retailers are always offering some great Google Pixel 5 deals, as they’re vying for you to purchase this flagship device from them. We’ve rounded up the best deals, so you can skip the research and pick up your new phone.

If you want to get your hands on the Google Pixel 5, you’ll need to decide if you want an unlocked version or something under a carrier plan. Amazon, Best Buy, and the Google Store have unlocked phones, while Verizon is the current carrier with the Pixel 5 available to buy.

Best Carrier Google Pixel 5 Deals

    The Google Pixel 5 is available at Verizon. You can grab either the black or green version, and you can save if you trade in an eligible phone.

AT&T

The Google Pixel 5 is currently sold out at AT&T but keep checking back — it may return soon.

    If you're already with AT&T you can grab your Google Pixel 5 directly from them when stock returns.

Note that both carriers are currently only offering in-store pick-up for the Pixel 5a, so you can’t order it online.

In a year full of $1,000 – $2,000 flagships, the Google Pixel 5 doesn’t attempt to become a flagship, but it still ends up becoming one simply because it’s at the helm of the ship for Google in 2020 and the first half of 2021. But that goes to show not everyone needs to have a flagship processor. Most average users should be just fine with the modest package of the Pixel 5, and the camera is just the icing on the top that makes it one of the phones a lot of reviewers can heartily recommend this year.
