Edited by:"Eden0032"Found 4th Dec
Thought this was a good deal with the 2 year warranty. Any issues you can get a replacement or repair. Been looking for a while and haven't seen it any cheaper.

£265 for the Google Pixel XL. It is locked to EE, but EE will unlock for £8.99 according to their website.

I just purchased this (tbf I did have £132 worth of CeX vouchers bringing it down to £133!)

Great price if it comes in decent nick. Good find

What is Grade B? Grade A is £310 so the huge drop must mean it's in well used condition with scratches to be 20% cheaper.

I'd say that grade C show signs of being well used. From past experience, grade B usually means missing earphones/box/official charger and instead comes with a generic charger

Great phone

They value a box/accessories at £45? Grade C is £250.

I bought a Grade B phone which came with the original fast charger and earphones still sealed and the phone was completely unmarked and looked new.
But as it lacked the retail box it was marked as Grade B.
It's the luck of the draw.

Awesome deal. Android 8.1 soon, this will be the first to get it.

Have had mine for a year, great phone if you can live with 32gb storage...

Grade b is grade a missing box or with box and scratches. Always go to cex to pre examine I think.

Dunno quite what 8.1 is but my N8 already has Oreo. Decent deal though. Heated.

I recently got lg g6 b grade. It came in generic box with only the charger but condition was pristine, prefer that rather than having the box. 2 year warranty fo peace of mind. If you're into a pixel itd a decent price, especially if yoy liok around and buy some discounted vouchers

As some people have already said, grade B could be almost brand new but missing a box, or it could just as easily be scratched and battered. Grades depend on the person grading them not the actual guidelines set.

Scratched and battered is much more likely to be Grade C.
This isn't Amazon Warehouse where they are overwhelmed with the volume of returns and the variety of items.
CeX only handle a small range of goods and visually grading a phone is not difficult so the odds are in your favour.

If I am not happy with the condition can I return it? How does it work? Havent bought from CeX before

If you bought it from the Store then you can return it within 2 days but you will only get a CEX voucher & not cash etc. If you bought it online then you have 14 days to return........8)

Tbf I was torn between the G6 and Pixel XL (see my discussion post). Decided to go for this based on the free photo storage.

Yeah I was consoderong pixel too but the small bezels and wide lens camera (this thing can do really unique photos!) Has swayed me towards lg. Im happy but sure you would enjoy yours as well!

All gone

In my experience, Grade B means 1 of 2 things. Either mint condition without box etc. or bad condition with everything. You therefore need to look in person.

*all* grade B phones going forward will come without the box. Some stores may have kept the box and will dispatch the box with the device if the item was brought in before they changed their policy but as it stands if you get a grade B there is a chance you won't get an original charger and you are very unlikely to get an original box.

This is a new policy. They are actively throwing boxes away when devices are brought in as a B grade at this point. Seems wasteful to me but what do I know.

This information was given to me by a large store, and frustrating news to me as I don't tend to buy devices without the original box and accessories but have been lucky with B grades in terms of item condition before. They told me that they had been through all their B grades and disposed of the boxes.

There's one in Inverness. I'd have bought it today but the screen has a fairly significant mark on it. Looks good other than that.

Does anyone know if they refund in original payment method or voucher if you buy from CEX online and return within the 14 days? Seriously tempted by some of the prices on the standard Pixel but there are some horror stories of the CEX refund experience on trustpilot and various forums....

I've only had to return from an online order once. Took it to local store a couple of days after and they processed the refund on the original payment. Was straightforward and no hassle.

I want a Pixel, I don't want to pay over £500, should I wait till new years or buy second hand???

Had I not got the £27 a month deal on the Pixel 2, I would have bought one of these.

Phone arrived today and it's in fairly good condition. A few very slight marks around the edge of the phone, but other than that all good!

Just waiting to speak with EE to unlock it.
