Missed out on Apple’s iPhone X or Google’s Pixel 2 when they were released? Today’s your lucky day, so don’t wait any longer. The Apple Store and the Google Store have limited quantities of the phones available.
Two of the top flagships you can buy right now are pretty hard to get. Both the iPhone X and Pixel 2 have been sold out through multiple retailers for weeks, but currently they’re back in stock as holiday shopping is underway.
Whether you’re shopping through the Apple Store or the Google Store, you can get either phone. It’ll just take a couple weeks for your shiny new phone to arrive. So, if you can manage with whatever phone you’re rocking at the moment for a bit longer, soon you’ll have an iPhone X or Pixel 2 in your hands.
The wait time for the iPhone X is slightly shorter than what Pixel 2 buyers are going to see. Order an iPhone X through Apple and a delivery should be expected in 2-3 weeks. Through the Google Store, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 should arrive in 3-4 weeks.
There’s no question that Apple’s been doing a better job than Google keeping its flagship widely available. The Pixel 2, frankly, couldn’t be found anywhere for several weeks. At least with the iPhone X, you have the ability to shop around at different retailers and carriers, both online and in-store, to see if any units are in stock. Google oddly limits the Pixel 2 to the Google Store, Verizon, and Best Buy.
Delivery estimates from the Apple Store and the Google Store make it clear that the iPhone X and Pixel 2 will be on doorsteps before (or during) major holidays in December.
