Best Buy Mobile: Stay Connected
The days of rotary phones are long past, and now you’re hard pressed to find someone without a cell phone in their pocket. It’s how we stay in touch, check transit schedules and find that new restaurant. With a wide variety of mobiles, prepaid cell phones and cell phone accessories available from top carriers, the right cell phone and plan for you is out there, and Best Buy can help you find it.
With manufacturers battling it out to make the brightest, fastest and best smartphone on the market, we get to pick from the cream of the crop. With devices that let you surf, stream, text, call and plan your life, the lineup of smartphones has everything you need in the palm of your hand.
Google Pixel and Pixel XL
The new Pixel and Pixel XL from Google represent a pinnacle of hardware and software running the latest version of Android, 7.1 Nougat.
Forging glass and metal together into a premium design worthy of the power under the hood, these smartphones are built to perform to the highest standard. The 5-inch Pixel and 5.5-inch Pixel each sport the same powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor and high-resolution (2560 x 1440) AMOLED display, running Android 7.1 Nougat and all the latest features.
The Pixel Imprint fingerprint sensor in the back unlocks the phone with speed and precision. Switching from an older phone(1) to a Pixel is easier now through the Quick Switch Adapter included in the box.
Pre-loaded with Google’s suite of apps, the standout feature is Google Assistant, an artificial intelligence voice recognition platform built to act on your command. Say “Ok, Google,” or hold the home button to spring it to life, waiting for you to tell it what you want.
Trust the Pixel or Pixel XL to capture photos and video the envy of others. Shoot with Smartburst for action shots to freeze that one moment in time. Use Lens Blur to give your photos pro-looking depth-of-field effects. Shoot video in 4K resolution for playback on a 4K TV to see the crisp detail.
Never run out of space for all your photos and videos when you have unlimited storage at your disposal. Google Photos will back up and store all your images and clips at full resolution, organizing them so you can find and share them on a whim.
If your tastes run a bit simpler, the mobile market still has the phones that you need. With cell phones and basic plans for calling and texting, or prepaid cell phones that let you pay as you go, the right phone and plan combination can get you back in the game.
Best Buy offers cell phone plans and prepaid cell phones from all of the major carriers. Whether you choose to go with Bell, Fido, Telus Mobility, Rogers, Virgin Mobile, Koodo, Chatr and SaskTel, you can find a plan that works with your needs and suits your lifestyle perfectly.
Cell Phone Accessories
Once you’ve picked your cell phone, it’s time to deck it out. Pick up a protective case that reflects your unique style, a mobile charger for the car, an extra MicroSD card or a Bluetooth headset. Cell phone accessories will let you guard your mobile so that you can stay connected with your friends and family wherever you go.
