Nexus phones are a dream come true for those users who want all the best Google has to offer untainted with carrier-specific apps and services. Currently, the company is putting all its efforts into promoting the newest addition to the Nexus family, the 6P, which resulted in last year’s Nexus 6 being pulled from the Google Store. It doesn’t mean however, that the phone is no longer worth your attention. On the contrary, the unlocked Nexus 6 smartphone is an awesome device and today its price reached the lowest point this year – the handset is now on sale for just $249.99 which is over 50% off its original price.
Nexus 6 on sale today $400 less than its initial price
It’s not the first discount on the Motorola-made Nexus 6. The phone was launched with a hefty price tag of $649 but as it usually happens, it got more budget-friendly with time. After several price trims, Amazon is now offering the 32GB Nexus 6 for $249.99, while a model with twice as much storage (64GB) will set you back $299.99. That’s a whole $100 cheaper than what Motorola is asking for the phone and $400 less than its initial price.
What can you get for under $250? Quite a lot, actually. In fact, even though the Nexus 6 is a little over a year old, it’s still on par with some of the best phones released this year. For starters, the handset packs a huge 5.96-inch screen with QHD (1440 x 2560 pixels) resolution and under the hood has a Snapdragon 805 chipset with a 2.7GHz quad-core Krait 450 CPU and an Adreno 420 GPU as well as 3GB of RAM to boot. On the back the device has a 13-megapixel camera with OIS and dual-LED flash while the front houses a rather modest 2-megapixel sensor. Last but not least, power is delivered by a capacious 3,220 mAh battery which should be good for up to 24 hours of talk time or up to 330 hours of standby time. Moreover, as Google promised, the phone will get timely Android updates throughout 2016.
For now, Amazon is the only retailer that sells the Nexus 6 at such affordable price. The deal will run until Christmas so you still have a few days to take advantage of the discount. That said, the Nexus 6 would make a perfect holiday gift.
