Deal: Google is now selling the Nexus 6 32 GB for $499, and the Nexus 6 64 GB for $549
While the Motorola-made Nexus 6 has been around for about 7 months, it's still an impressive device, currently being Google's flagship smartphone. If you wanted to buy the Nexus 6, but you were put off by its not so attractive price, you should know that the handset is now available starting at $499 from Google Store.

Obviously, $499 is the price of a Nexus 6 32 GB. But the 64 GB variant of the extra-large Nexus is now also cheaper than ever: $549. All in all, Google slashed $150 off the prices of both versions. We don't know if this is a limited time offering, but we're also seeing Best Buy and Amazon offering the Nexus 6 32 GB for just $499.

This new deal might have something to do with the fact that not one, but two new Nexus smartphones could be released later this year. Reportedly, sometime soon we should see Google announcing a 5.7-inch Huawei-made Nexus, as well as a 5.2-inch LG-made Nexus, both running Android M (obviously). However, these next generation Nexus devices might be launched towards the end of 2015, so there's still plenty of time to buy a Nexus 6 if you really want one.

Very nice price point for the phone. This is the price that it should have launched at IMO.

Super nice price!

23. Mxyzptlk unregistered

I agree. That price should have been those at the start.

Yes, this price point is much more appropriate for this device, especially along with the new competition in terms of other flagships out there.

if they launched a 5" version at this price or less, it would have done much better. I have actually never seen someone in person with it.

They did. It's called the Moto X. You should look at that model. It is even cheaper then the Nexus 6 price right now. Also it offers some unique features that are still not found on other smart phones.

The Moto X is inferior to the Nexus 5 in terms of camera/screen and it was more expensive, you can search comparisons online. The design is similar to the Nexus 6 though. The hardware of the Moto X and the Nexus 6 inside the shell is drastically different.

How's the screen inferior?

I think he means the resolution, 2k on the Nexus and 1080p on the X. However, it's doubtful there is any difference to the naked eye, and FHD is easier on the battery compared to a QHD screen.

Phones like the Nexus and Note series that are some of the last models to be released each year will always have better specs. The earlier released phones (Galaxy S, HTC One, Moto X, etc) usually have hardware that was released in the Nexus and Note series the year prior.

the problem is the nexus 6 is expensive even at that price point, the asus did great on their 299 model, with few sacrifices. Only on the display at 1080p, while the nexus was priced so high and there was no need for that.

I agree some what for me some of the sacrifices don't do well with me and some of the pluses. Pluses are I'm betting battery life is better on the Asus, 4 gig of ram to make everything move very smooth. Some of the minuses are it looks incredibly cheap, screen isn't as good, wont be aupported by the xda community, doesn't have front facing stareo speakers and the biggest is the updates.

more like the droid turbo than the moto x, is a 5.2 inch display with all the guts of the nexus 6.

Its absolutely a clone of the droid turbo but smaller to appeal to the masses

Correct, the guts of the Droid Turbo are comparable to the Nexus 6, unlike the Moto X. The post above hypthized that the Moto X 2014 is like a smaller version of the Nexus 6, which it looks like, but it is not at all similar. I simply said that the Nexus 5 which is an older phone than the Moto X is a much better phone that came at a lower price. Unfortunately it can no longer be purchased.

Sadly I cannot buy it directly. It would have been a nice replace for my Z1.

Off topic here but is anyone getting a stupid San Andrews pop up ad when browsing Phonearena on their phone?

12. PapaSmurf

Nope because Mercury Browser on my 6 Plus blocks all ads. :) Btw, go watch the movie. It's pretty good.

24. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Same. The ads are Annoying.

Sorry, I meant San Andreas..

I love my white nexus 6 and 5.1. I do wish it had multi window like my note 4 though

That's an excellent price. I can't think of a better value at that price point.

Still way too much

This is a step in the right direction. I have a feeling this will be the price until September/October, and the price may go down even further, to get ready for this year's Nexus. I'd like the 32GB model to get in the $450 range. I'd pick one up, even just to use it as a mini-tablet.
