On Tuesday, April 3, Verizon announced new promotional deals starting on Thursday, April 5. The carrier is offering up to 50 percent off for its top smartphones including the Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, iPhone X, Samsung Galaxy S9, and more.

For a limited time, you can trade in your smartphone and receive up to 50 percent off a Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL, along with a few other perks. The deal also includes two months free of YouTube TV, a Google Chromecast, and a Google Home Mini. But even if you decide to buy the device at full price without a trade in, you still receive the Google bundle.

With YouTube TV, you will be able to stream 50-plus live TV channels which also includes a cloud DVR with unlimited storage space. You can then redeem your YouTube TV trial via YouTube’s website. But it’s important to note that it’s only available for customers who haven’t subscribed to the trial in the past. After the trial period ends, you will be automatically charged $40 per month — unless you cancel beforehand.

In addition, Verizon is also offering a second deal starting April 5. Customers can get up to 50 percent off Android devices including the Samsung Galaxy S9, S9 Plus, and iPhone X as long as they have an eligible trade-in.

To get 50 percent off the iPhone 8, Galaxy S9, Pixel 2, or Moto Z2 Force, the following devices are eligible for trade in: iPhone 8, 8 Plus, 7, 7 Plus, 6S Plus, Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, GS8, GS8+, Note 8, Google Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, LG G6, LG V30, Moto Z2 Force, and Moto Z Force.

You will be able to receive 35 percent off when trading in the iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6S, Samsung GS7, Note 5, GS6, GS6 Edge, Gs6 Edge+, LG G5, LG V20, Moto Z Droid, Moto Z2 Play, or HTC 10.

As for the iPhone 8 Plus, Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, Pixel 2 XL, and LG V30, you can trade in the iPhone X, iPhone 8, 8 Plus, 7, 7 Plus, Samsung GS8, GS8+ Note 8, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, LG V30, or Moto Z2 Force.

For the 35 percent off, you can trade in the iPhone 6S, 6S Plus, Samsung GS7/Edge, Note 5, Google Pixel, Pixel XL, LG G6, LG V20, Moto Z2 Play, Moto Z Force, or HTC 10.

Lastly, to get 50 percent off the iPhone X or Galaxy Note 8 you have to trade in either the iPhone 8 Plus, GS8+, or Note 8. To get 35 percent off you can trade in the iPhone 7, 7 Plus, iPhone 8, Samsung GS8, Google Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, or LG V30.

The deal is available for both those who either switch to Verizon from another carrier or choose to upgrade. Trade-in credits will be issued over 24 months, and they will appear within one to two billing cycles after Verizon receives the device you traded in.

5 Android camera features that I need to have on my iPhone
iPhone 14 Pro and Google Pixel 7 Pro.

One of my favorite things to do with my iPhone 14 Pro is to take photos. Whether it’s part of my attempt to be artsy by snapping spontaneous moments with my husband and daughter, or just capturing the magic at Disneyland, I have a ton of photos. Though I don’t have time to edit every single one, I do like to spend time making edits on my favorites just to improve how they look before I post them on social media. But the built-in tools on the iPhone for taking photos and editing them are, well, lacking.

I’ve been testing a few different Android devices since I joined Digital Trends, and let me tell you — it’s been a trip. I’ve discovered so many new photo and camera tools on various Android devices that just show how much Apple is behind in that regard, despite being one of the most popular devices for mobile photography.

This is the Pixel 2’s secret eye-scanning feature that never was
Google Pixel 2 XL - Best Android phones

Google's Pixel 2 was one of the best phones the company made, but it had the potential to be even cooler. The Internal Archive this weekend shared a prototype of an early Pixel 2 model that was equipped with iris-scanning technology. Google did not ultimately ship the Pixel 2 with an iris scanner, opting instead for its Pixel Imprint rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.

According to the Archive, the Pixel prototype here was a single-purpose one. It was dedicated nearly entirely to testing iris recognition. The front camera is gone, replaced by an infrared unit, and the rear camera lacks LEDs as well. Even the software loaded on the phone is an entirely basic version of Android with nothing but the bare necessities.

There’s a very clear winner in our heated Pixel 7 vs. iPhone 14 camera battle
The back of the iPhone 14 Plus and Pixel 7.

The Pixel 7 has a fantastic camera, and it’s one of the top reasons to pick the latest Google phone over any other, but what about Apple’s latest phones? The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus share the same camera technology, and the smallest new iPhone also impressed in our recent review. Putting them against each other is the right thing to do.
Google Pixel 7 and iPhone 14 Plus camera specs
For this test, we are using the Apple iPhone 14 Plus, which has exactly the same camera system as the smaller iPhone 14. No matter which one you’re interested in, the results below are representative of both. For clarification, we’re using the Google Pixel 7 and not the Google Pixel 7 Pro.

Starting with the iPhone 14 Plus, you get a 12-megapixel main camera with an f/1.5 aperture and optical image stabilization, joined by a second 12MP camera for wide-angle photos and an f/2.4 aperture. Apple’s Photonic Engine, Deep Fusion, and Smart HDR 4 technology are all part of the software package working behind the scenes. This same specification is shared by the iPhone 14.
