Deal: Amazon is now offering the Motorola Nexus 6 starting at $349.99
With about a month to go before we get to see the 2016 Google Nexus smartphone lineup, expected to consist out of a 5.2-inch LG-made smartphone and a 5.8-inch Nexus made by Huawei, last year's Motorola Nexus 6 is probably fading away as far as customer interest is concerned, especially since Google is maintaining the handset's premium price. Despite this, however, Amazon is now offering a very tempting deal on the Nexus 6, which will probably see some Nexus 6 units flying off shelves and into the hands of those with an eye for stock Android implementations.

Amazon is currently offering the 32GB version of the Motorola Nexus 6 at $349.99, with the 64GB version of the handset priced at $399.99. Both the Midnight Blue and the Cloud White versions of the smartphone are available. At this price, customers get an unlocked device which can be used on any GSM carrier such as AT&T and T-Mobile, as well as US warranty. On top of this Amazon is also throwing in free shipping.

Note that these prices are $150 lower than what Google is currently asking for the same handsets. It's safe to say that the Nexus 6 was never as cheap as Amazon is currently offering it.

The Google Nexus 6, manufactured by Motorola, comes with a 6-inch display running a resolution of 1440 by 2560 pixels (QHD), a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chipset paired with 3GB of RAM, a 3220mAh battery, as well as a 13MP primary sensor. Although the hardware specs are very tempting to this date, the main advantage of the Nexus 6 over other phablets is its stock Android implementation. The Nexus 6 is likely to be one of the first smartphones to get updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow when the OS launches this fall. If you're interested in picking up a Nexus 6 for $349.00 from Amazon, make sure to read our Google Nexus 6 review before committing to a purchase.

What do you guys think of Amazon's discounted prices for the Nexus 6?

Great phone. Got mine on release date last year. I really want to upgrade to probably the Z5 and if not that, something next year, but then I'd have to quit Project Fi and go back to T-Mobile and the savings are too good. Might be stuck with N6 for another year.

Yeah, I'm finally really tempted to pull the trigger. Waiting for the new nexus releases and especially to see what LG does.

For that price I'm really struggling on whether or not to buy the Nexus 6. It's an awesome phone if you don't mind the size, and you can hop on Google's project Fi with it which makes it so damn appealing. I'm sure this year's Nexus's will have that option as well though.

Thats a very good price for this phone. With the Nexus for 2016 coming out with in a month, I would wait and see what Huawei has to offer.

May pick up a cloud white 64gb. The blue gets disgustingly greasy.

32GB for $349, if only all new nexus were like this.

That's what the price should have been before.

with 1 GB of RAM, 1810 mAh battery and less than 1080p resolution, the iPhone should be priced at $150 like other comparable phones, but I don't see you complaining about their prices.

No with 3GB of RAM.

Umm.... you wish iPhones had 3GB of RAM.

You changed your comment because I could have sworn you said something different. Even if you didn't we aren't talking about the iPhone and they aren't even compatible.

No, of course not, you never talk about the iPhone and how they're the most expensive and over priced phones on the market. You only talk about Motorola even though their phones are priced well below the competition.

Hey. if the iphone is able to give a great , smooth & fluid experience to user then why should be caring about the specs.

I'm not criticizing the specs, I'm criticizing the price, and Mxyzptlk's hypocrisy.

15. Mxyzptlk unregistered

He's being ignorant. Don't try and use logic with him.

Couldn't resist that price. Snagged a 64gb cloud white Nexus 6 and on T-Mobile. I could not be happier with this phone.
