If you’re willing to try a new carrier, Mint Mobile is taking $400 off Google’s best flagship yet
Google Pixel 7 Pro
The Pixel 7 Pro is the culmination of a promise Google has been making for seven years, and it delivers in almost every category. Photography is second to none, there’s plenty of power and the screen looks great even when it’s still curved.
Carrier deals are among the best Pixel 7 Pro deals to date, and while the big three have rolled out their usual charms, Mint Mobile is also getting in on the fun. If you buy the Google Pixel 7 Pro and 12 months of service, Mint Mobile will take $400 off the phone and pay for 6 months of your service plan, for every plan from the 4GB plan up to the unlimited plan. That gets you a year of unlimited 4G/5G service for the price of the 4GB plan, while you get the 7 Pro for almost 50% off.
ANDROIDPOLICE VIDEO OF THE DAY
As we mentioned in our Pixel 7 Pro review, the improvements and refinements of last year’s 7 Pro – especially for the cameras and zoom/macro photography – not only make it one of the best Android phones on the market, it is also finally justified in its $300 price hike over the near-Mini-Me clone that is the Pixel 7. To quote: “For a lot of people, the Pixel 7 might be enough. Use the primary lens on your smartphone – I think the $600 option will serve you well. But I’ve had so much fun shooting with this over the past few weeks. the telescope and ultra-wide angle lenses that when I inevitably switch to the smaller model for a closer look I know I’m going to miss those features.”
The only thing you’re missing out on buying one from Mint Mobile is that you can’t get that oh-so-pretty Hazel. You’d think a green and gold phone would totally match Mint’s green and orange aesthetic, but as they say, black goes with everything. And you’re going to put it in a sturdy Pixel 7 Pro case if you do have it, right? (Right??)
Mint Mobile may be best known for one of its co-owners, Ryan Reynolds, but other than the off-the-wall ads and that cute green fox, the MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator) remains one of the easier-to-use providers. Prices have been kept quite low, especially when you pre-purchase months of service like this deal does, and it remains one of the more affordable carriers in the United States. It runs on T-Mobile’s network – MVNOs lease the network from one of the larger carriers instead of building their own towers – so you don’t have to worry about a weak cell signal.
