Deal: Google Nexus 6 available at the ultra-low price of $180 on eBay
Although both Google and Motorola have stopped selling the Nexus 6 a few good months ago, it turns out that a quick visit to eBay can land you a manufacturer refurbished Google Nexus 6 at the ultra-low price of $180 with free shipping included.

Top-rated eBay seller bidallies currently offers the Google Nexus 6 with 32GB of integrated storage at just $180. Sure, these are manufacturer refurbished units, but the seller says that these devices are in "excellent cosmetic condition" and have "no sign of use". The white version is already sold out at this price, so buyers will have to settle for the blue version of the Nexus 6.

The Google Nexus 6 was launched all the way back in late 2014, but you shouldn't underestimate its capabilities. The specs of the original Google Nexus phablet include a gargantuan 5.96-inch AMOLED display running at a resolution of 1440 by 2560 pixels, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chipset with 2.7GHz quad-core CPU, 3GB of RAM, a 13MP primary camera, and a 3220mAh battery.

If you're not good at reading through specs, what you should know is that the Google Nexus 6 performs smoother than most Android handsets you can get your hands on, offers a large crisp display, as well as a decent camera setup. On top of all this, the Nexus 6 currently runs the vanilla version of Android 6.0 Marshmallow and is scheduled to get the commercial version of Android N later this summer. 


If you're in the market for an Android phablet but can't go for current-gen devices such as the Google Nexus 6P or the Galaxy S7 edge due to budget restrictions, then this deal should be perfect for your situation.

lg g4 and nexus 6p are phablets and are smaller. Phablet doesn't need to be 6.0 5.5 and 5.7 works too

The Nexus 6 is also a Fi device as well. There is now 3 carriers that support Fi.

The correct approach is to enquire the screen to body ratio. Nexus 6 is 74.1% Nexus 6P is 71.4% So Nexus 6 has better screen estate compare to 6P. iPhone 6s plus is 67.7%

Well it better be this cheap. Considering it came out in November 2014 and it's OS update cycle is almost over.

If I remember correctly, Nexus 5 was updated well past the two year window.

That's barely a year and a half old...

Google only has guaranteed OS updates for 2 years. They will still get security updates for 3 years. But, it is possible they can like PapaSmurf said Nexus 5 was updated well past the 2 year window, but the Nexus 4 wasn't. So, I guess it is still up in the air.

Eww, I'll pass. The Nexus 6 was a terrible phone. The only redeeming qualities are the stereo speakers and the bands of all US carriers.

You just don't get tired of bashing Android devices, do you?

I don't get tired of being right.

More like you don't get tired of trolling Android. My Nexus 6 had none of those issues you claimed.

I don't recall saying anything about issues in my comment. Learn to read.

Mxyzptlk you have been wrong so many times. Besides we all know you love your iPhone and Apple watch. It's funny how Apple is going to go with AMOLED in 2017. Yet this device has an excellent AMOLED display, and it's QHD to boot. Not some low resolution HD display that you find on the iPhone 6/6S. This device also supports Fi. Something that Apple doesn't even have. The Nexus 6 has cat 6 LTE. The iPhone only received cat 6 LTE last year with the iPhone 6S/+. Mxyzptlk you can continue on to show the world how ignorant you really are.

1. I don't give a crap about QHD. FHD is just as good and doesn't require as much power to run. I guess that must have slipped your tiny mind when you decided to comment. 2. cat. 6 LTE isn't really that widespread right now. Don't waste my time. The 6S/+ has all the carrier bands and continues outperform many Android devices to which I am more than happy to post links to make you look bad. 3. You've already done a good job at showing how ignorant you are.

"You've already done a good job at showing how ignorant you are." not one is better at showing off their ignorance as you are... http://www.phonearena.com/news/Moto-Mods-prices-leaked-by-Verizon-prepare-to-pay-premium_id82111/comments

You need to stop spamming that link. It makes you look like a tool.

1. 1440 resolution would in fact require too much power to run... if your phone had an embarrassing 1750 mAh battery, but seeing as the phone has a 3220 mAh battery, I think you might find something else to bitch about. 2. It also has wireless charging, built in stereo speakers, is actually reasonably priced and don't have the Apple logo on it so you won't be embarrassed to use it in public. ;-)

1. You're making excuses again. Of course an android phone requires more battery to deal with Google Play services constantly running and the many wakelocks that happens on Android. 2. And?

@Mxyzptlk - You're never right. It must suck to be a loser and be wrong all the time.

Remind us all Mxyzptlk, when was the last time you were wrong?

35. Mxyzptlk unregistered

I don't have to remind you of anything.

As a current Nexus 6 owner I can tell you that after two years with it, it still runs perfectly well. Running Android N preview 3 on it with no problems. I see the occasional hiccup, but it is still a beta. That being said, the phone is great. The physical dimensions are not all that much bigger than my wife's Note 5. That said, given the deal, I'd buy another for this price. To each his own.

Android N preview 4 out now. Just updated my Nexus 6 to it! ;-)
