Many people had problems with the skyrocketing prices of Google’s flagship smartphones, Pixel 2 (Even though they are always willing to pay more than that for an iPhone) so Google started a trade-in program. If you were following the Pixel sub-reddit since the starting of the program, you may have noticed threads full of packaging related complaints. The packaging was from Google that was sent to the customers for sending their phones back to them for receiving the discount.
Google Upgrades The Trade-In Packaging
Even though plastic bubble wrap sleeves were sent out to customers for the same matter but that wasn’t enough, so Google revamped the idea by upgrading the packaging to new cardboard boxes lined with padded foam. Ever since the cardboard boxes with padded foams were introduced, the Pixel sub-reddit has been generating positive reviews for this new change as the worry of getting their phones damaged throughout the shipping process is not there anymore.
The Discount Program
With the trade-in program in place, the value for a good-condition Pixel smartphone can be found below:
- Google Pixel 32GB – $350
- Google Pixel 128GB – $360
- Google Pixel XL 32GB – $400
