Deal: Google Nexus 6 brand new and unlocked for $299

Deal: Google Nexus 6 brand new and unlocked for $299
After the fanfare that greeted the arrival of the new Nexus smartphones earlier this week, last year's Motorola-made Google Nexus 6 might seem like a distant memory. A solid, albeit very large handset, the Nexus 6 still has much to bring to the table. If you're on the hunt for a bargain, the outgoing flagship can be snagged for just $299.99, saving $350 off the suggested retail price. 

While this particular deal arrives via an eBay vendor, it should be noted that the Nexus 6 is brand new and unlocked, and the seller has an extremely good reputation. If this isn't a problem for you, then you'll surely be tempted by a smartphone that boasts a quad-HD display, quad-core Snapdragon 805 and a healthy 3 GB of RAM. In fact, the only real down-side is that it doesn't include a microSD slot, but even then, there's 64 GB of on-board real estate. 

Sure, the 6-inch display isn't for everyone. Make no mistake, the thing is huge, and if you've got small hands, you're going to have difficulty in using the Nexus 6 without discomfort. But if you like a smartphone with a large footprint, the Nexus 6 is one of the most sizable around, and as an added plus point, will be among the first to run Android 6.0 Marshmallow when it hits the scene in a few days' time. 

With an MSRP of $650, this is quite the deal. For $299.99, you'll struggle to get as much bang for your buck, particularly from a reputable firm like Motorola. 

With the new Nexus 6P here now, the price point for the Nexus 6 is likely to continue dropping. Thus, even if eBay isn't to your taste, there will be other deals, and as we spot them, we'll be sure to keep you in the loop. 

If you do wish to take a look at this offer, though, check the source link below.

Meh. Right now you can get: oneplus two for 379$. moto X style for 400$. LG G4 for 400$ nexus 5X for 429$. All of them are much better phones than nexus 6, and are sensibly sized too.

10,000 people have the Oneplus two, but this you can get without an invite.

All 10,000 of those people are in Westeros though. Tyrion speaks from experience.

oneplus two for 379$ poor official support, I have a oneplus one and haven't seen any update since they released the Two. No NFC, Mediocre camera. Phone is limited to GSM carriers, non-removable battery. only 1080p phone in this list, finger print scanner, invite system moto X style for 400$. Reviews say the non-removable battery is mediocre, sd card, good official support, works with all US carriers, camera seems mediocre LG G4 for 400$ Good official support though skinned-OS needs to be improved, removable battery, sd card, limited to GSM carrier if purchased unlocked. probably the best camera in this list. nexus 5X for 429$ good official support, works with all GSM/CDMA carriers, camera seems mediocre, finger print scanner(not sure how useful it is), small non-removable battery (average battery life likely) Overall, none of these phone seems like a big upgrade from previous gen flagships. The only feature i value most is universal support for all CDMA and GSM carrier as that allows me to shop around for cheap or possibly free MVNO (freedom, ringplus) hope that is the direction phone makers are moving

Oneplus 2: Oxygen OS/ invite only LG G4: $449. Carrier variants, specifically Sprint/Verizon, LG's overlay on Android, updates on LG's/Carrier's timeframe Moto X Style: $399.99 for 16GB/ $449 32GB (yes there is SD card reader), Updates after the first year questionable (Just ask VZW Moto X (2014) customers how they are enjoying simultaneous Voice/Data), IPS LCD with Active Notifications (which will affect battery life). Nexus 5X: $379 16GB/ $429 32GB, not sipping until the end of October, FHD, smaller battery The nexus 6 is guaranteed to at least receive OS updates for another year plus security patches for 3 years beyond that. The Nexus 6 can also be used on all carriers as it comes as one of the first truly unlocked phones. At 299 its not a bad price, but once the 5X and 6P start shipping the price will further decrease...

Not a bad price if you can stand the lackluster camera and the terrible battery life.

Camera isn't bad, but I was coming from a Galaxy S4.
