Google will charge you 940 for a Pixel 2 XL but with some research you can easily knock 100 off that. Similarly, an official Galaxy Note8 (dual SIM) from Samsung is 1,000, but going through another store you can get down quite a bit. Still, we can do better than either of those.
The Pixel 2 XL is 700 for a new unit with 64GB storage, you can get it from eBay over here. Only the Just Black color option is available (sorry, panda fans).

The Galaxy Note 8 is 616 over here. Its a dual SIM phone with Exynos 8895 chipset and 64GB storage. That link is for the Midnight Black color, a Maple Gold color is available here for the same price.

As a bonus deal, theres a 128GB microSD card here for 28, which is a few pounds off the Amazon UK price.
