Verizon Pixel 2 XL at Best Buy is Now $500 Off

Top 8 tips for improving the performance of your Android smartphone

Deals site Woot is now offering refurbished Pixel 3 XL handsets with 128GB of storage in black for just $519.99. This functionality was initially featured within the first Android Q beta. Keep in mind that this is very early software, built for developers, and is not intended for daily use on average users smartphones.

In total, Google only opened the Android Q beta for the Google Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. It was so far an exclusive feature for US Pixel owners but now Duplex is making its grand rollout in the states.

Not only were there complaints that Google's second-gen flagship couldn't meet the vibrancy that its rivals could, there were numerous reports of screen burn-in issues, problems with responsiveness, shut downs, reboots, audio crackling, battery drain and even some devices leaving factories without their operating system.
