Anonymous, 13 Oct 2017And there is no tax in the US??in the US taxes are not included in the price list. they are added after buying. unlike EU by the law the Price must include the Tax.
NewHorizons, 05 Oct 2017Add 20% .. Prices in EU by the laws must include VAT taxesAnd there is no tax in the US??
renaud, 05 Oct 2017720 + 20 % = 864...still more expensive I know , but this is Google Europe branch pricing has nothing to do with EU market.
ask USA why they sell it more expensive in EU not EU people.
Anonymous, 05 Oct 2017Even after tax, the US price is noticeably cheaper than the European price. by the way , this is Google Europe pricing ... so Google are making them more expensive for EU.
Has nothing to do with EU market or sellers. Ask USA why they do this
Europeans should boycott those outrageous greedy US-companies... Pixel2 starts for 649 Dollar in the US. In Germany they want 799 Euro for it! Even with taxes and fees you have to pay in some configurations 150 Euro more than a customer in the US for the same Pixel.
LGV30, 05 Oct 2017Coz of iFruit, they do it so google must copy them to be seen as premium brand, I used Nexus 4... moreYeah, sadly, I want one. But here in Romania (which is best case scenario tbh), the Pixel 2 phones will be more expensive than the S8 duo and iPhone 8 duo.
So my only choices right now are the Nokia 8, wait for the Nokia 9 or wait for LineageOS 15 to hit the Galaxy S8.
Google 2k17 boys.
punmeisterone, 04 Oct 2017Why europeans have to get the cold shoulder from Google? -_-Coz of iFruit, they do it so google must copy them to be seen as premium brand, I used Nexus 4 it was such a great value for money, Now Google's just blindly following what apple is doing. No wonder they removed headphone jack the year they introduced Pixel Pods, they will tell that it's future but what it really is the greed for additional profits, coz you know people won't even consider buying their costly wireless headphones if google just provided 3.5mm jack, with that gone, some might give it a thought.

It's the American companies that are stupid, nearly nobody buys the Pixel phones in Europe and will definitely not do it at these prices for the pixel 2/2 XL.
BUT in general prices for phones are higher in Europe which makes people go for it anyway, iphones are atleast Â€100 more expensive in Europe than in the USA but that's also because apple (google as well) is an American company.
No matter what. This is waaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy too expensive. Not buying it.
Tech-9, 04 Oct 2017850$ = 720 euro . . . But retail cost 940 euro. ARE EUROPEANS RETARDED?! Nope, Google just wants more money.
harwey, 05 Oct 2017Googleheads...after first Pixel sold almost exclusively in US,you did it again.$650/550euro pr... moreThere's a lot of shipping/import fees when going outside your manufacturing Country. Some countries have import/export deals that make it much cheaper. I think there's a lot that goes into it. The conversion for the pixel XL from USD to CAD is $100 cheaper than what they are selling it for in Canada.
