Deal: up to $170 off the excellent Google Nexus 6P
The Google Nexus 6P is among the most celebrated phablets of recent times, and with good reason. The Huawei-made handset offers a premium build, beautiful display and a laudable point-and-shoot experience. Despite its age—the Nexus 6P was announced way back in September of last year—it can still hold its own against some of the newer entries that have since graced us with their presence. If you're into your big-screened powerhouses, the 6P remains a very attractive prospect, and thanks to Amazon, both the 64 and 128-gig models can be snapped up on the cheap. 

Upon the arrival of the Nexus 6P, the price of the base 32 GB model was set at $499. Given that many of today's apps and games are quite liberal with how much space they command—coupled with the lack of microSD support with the Nexus 6P—and you'll see why many buyers have instead opted for the 64 or 128 GB models. Initially, those larger variants costed $549 and $649 respectively, but thanks to Amazon, you can get the fully-loaded edition for almost $200 less than its original cost. 

The Nexus line has been at the heart of Android's rise in the mobile game, and whilst it's now ten months since the Nexus 6P became official, it's still among the best phablets in the business. The 64 GB version in gold, silver or graphite can be had for $403.75, saving almost $150 on the $549 regular price. The silver or graphite 128 GB edition, meanwhile, is now $478.75, which is a tidy discount from the $649 retail cost. 

The deal is part of Amazon's Prime Day promotions, and you can find a bunch of great savings and offers in our round-up. Meanwhile, if you're still on the fence regarding the Nexus 6P or would just like more information, be sure to take a peek at our in-depth review.

What's the deal with Lumias & Nexus'...? Discounts, more discounts, even more discounts, BOGO Deals, free giveaway... They both are fine phones as far as I'm concerned... I've got both, and love em' both...!!! Okay, fine... Lumia is 'plagued' with Windows OS... But what about Nexus? It's same old bloody 'rotten' Android that everyone loves, now isn't it...? Guess people crave BLOAT now a days, eh? Oh well... G'Day!

The average Joe wants iPhones or Galaxies when it comes to high end phones, that's why.

Discounts help with getting more people to buy. Not enough people know about the Nexus phones though.

Don't hold your breath on micro SD on nexus phones. I'd love it to, but I suspect it's quite unlikely.

Last year's Nexus 6P is still one of the best phones you can buy right now... but I do understand the draw of having the latest and greatest. I'm excited to see what this year holds in regards to the Nexus brand.

Both microsoft and google does not care about the profit from sale of lumia and nexus respectively. For microsoft it is all about prestige to keep lumia alive somehow till they get any alternative . For google, nexus is a tool to showcase android power and force other OEM to maintain standard. But a nexus device is anyday better than a lumia device.

I almost pulled the trigger on the 64GB version, but then just happened to notice the 32GB Moto X was slashed to 249.99 on the same day! As much as I love Nexus devices, I couldn't pass up that deal on Moto X. Looking back, I kind of wish I would have bought both since they both seem great in their own right. Oh well, I'm sure it will be slashed before the next Nexus comes out.
