Googleheads...after first Pixel sold almost exclusively in US,you did it again.$650/550euro price in US,but in Germany -800euro/944$.....wtf??!!!!thats what, 45% difference....
So,I guess people in Europe should buy other phones,certainly not your ugly massively overpriced repacked U11...thats your message to european consumers,Google?
Or you`re so blinded by iFruit company and their greed so you decide to be like them?
Oh,and btw the other phone,XL does look almost interresting...sort of...
Tech-9, 04 Oct 2017Test 🙄I totally agree with you, this is crazy. Personally, I'm not buying cellphones made by Apple, Samsung or Google, because I believe they are way overpriced and the manufacturers are just robbing their customers.
BTW - my current cellphone: ZTE Axon 7.
Seriously £900 for the Pixel 2 XL 128GB phone?
Flagship phones have literally got 50% more expensive in the last 12 months. Same for other manufacturers too. My S7 Edge bought almost exactly a year ago had a retail price of £610 at 4he time and that was already overpriced. What is the cause of this very heavy industry price rise? Same could be said of midrange phones too.
I'd appreciate it if Gsmarena could do an article about this, even asking manufacturers.

Making a phone cost 300$ final price 940 euro. And these things sell 10s million units. What a joke pricing. A daylight robbery. Only difference between 80 and 800$ phone is camera and cpu. Every phone have same functions and patents 80 or 800
Tech-9, 04 Oct 2017850$ = 720 euro . . . But retail cost 940 euro. ARE EUROPEANS RETARDED?! us price - before sales tax
eu price - after 20% vat
Crazy google prices, not everybody around in the world made dollars. With that price in my country, you need to work at least 2-3 months with a good office job.
That's why xiaomi are raping everyone with 150-250 devices.
"but boss, our phone lacks most features of the competitors"
"shut up lackey, i know what im doing. people will believe its a flagship if we price it high enough"
Mailman, 04 Oct 2017In USA and Canada you still need to add tax when buying. What about Europe?You have to add shipping + handling costs + insurance during international transportation. Than, you have to add the Custom duties (could be 20% because the device is made in China). On top of the cost structure, you have to add TVA (sales tax). You can consider TVA = 20%.
And, I didn't mentioned the re-seller markup...

You forgot transportation cost, custom taxes and about 20% sales taxes over the accumulated price CIP or CIF. The price for US does not include any custom or sales taxes.

ravsun, 04 Oct 2017650 USD converts to 811 CAD (approx.). Why the additional 90 CAD?650$ converts to 550Â€. Why additionail 250Â€?
So 940 euro in Germany, that means in the EU the price will be somewhere between 940 and 1000 euro average for the XL. Yeah right that won't sell.
