Absolute bargain, cheers OP.

I wonder will the Clearly White colour ever be in stock?

Think it takes a couple of days to port number over not sure how long to port back again.

Bought an eir sim today for a tenner, just bought this phone, says it will take 2 days to port but I'm tossing the sim as soon as the phone arrives. Was waiting for black Friday deal for a phone but this seems great, especially replacing a One Plus 3 which has become so slow.

Thanks again OP!

When they started advertising the offer a few weeks ago, no shops had stock, and some said they hadn't had any stock of that device for a long time. They may have had a delivery since then, though.

I heard a rumour that somebody ordered the phone, set the port date for sometime a few days away, received the phone and decided they weren't going to keep it. They then cancelled the port, but suddenly had a change of mind about returning the phone.

Somehow ended up with the phone without even porting a number. YMMV.

I checked in store on Henry St. (Dublin) and they hadn't had any in stock for ages, didn't know whether they'd be back, and didn't even know they were available online.

So I just bought one online using an Eir sim .

Thanks OP.

I read it's single sim which seems to be the only downside i saw when reading specs.

Single sim + esim. Another downside is lack on sd card slot.

It does mention somewhere full dual sim support with android 10, but can't seem to find out if that applies to this model, I'm abroad with a poor wifi connection, hard to find out.

Is the free unlimited Google Photos storage still applicable with new Pixel 3a?

Android 10 support Dual SIM Dual Standby (DSDS) so Google Pixel 3a support that as well but you do not use physical SIM in this case.
Not many mobile provides have eSIM cards in Europe... simply search for `ireland esim support` I do not see any in Ireland.. so for now this is more likely single sim phone.. It will take a year or two before the operators will realize that eSIM technology exist

No, and I think Google are ending it for all devices.
