Google's quest to build a smartphone as popular as the iPhone and Samsung Galaxy took a massive step forward when the original Google Pixel launched last year. Its successor – the aptly named Google Pixel 2 – is now on the shelves.

The Pixel 2 is a phone for Android lovers who want the purist interface on the market – even if it does only look like an incremental update from the original Pixel. But it's substantially more affordable than the likes of the Galaxy Note 8 and iPhone X, making it an obvious choice if you want a brand new flagship phone without paying stupid money.

And then there's the supersized Pixel 2 as well, with its fantastic 6-inch QHD+ display. Read on to see exactly how much you'll have to pay for your choice of new Google phone with our Pixel deals comparison chart.

Google Pixel 2 deals for SIM-free: how much does the phone cost?

Get out your calculator and dust off the abacus – if you want to bag the very best price on the Pixel 2 then buying the handset outright and combining it with a SIM only deal may save you some s.

The Pixel 2 costs 629 and the Pixel 2 XL will be 799. Considering that the cheapest SIM out there costs a mere 3.99 per month, that's less than 100 for the two year term and so will potentially give you plenty of change from 750 over two years if you go down that road. That's a pretty decent saving on the first set of prices to filter through.

There's no doubt that the Pixel 2 is one of the very finest Android phones out there, but the Pixel's successor is a familiar story of incremental improvements rather than whole-scale change. The feature that might just get you buying are the top-of the-line cameras for photos and video. While the delightful screen, great-sounding speakers and slick Android operating system will all appeal to a range of smartphone users.
