Google nixes the Nexus 6 from Google Store

Google nixes the Nexus 6 from Google Store
Google today stopped selling the Nexus 6 via Google Store, more than 1 year after releasing it. Perhaps this shouldn't come as a surprise, since the Nexus 6P is now Google's flagship handset, and it's almost as large as the Nexus 6. At the moment, the Nexus 6P and the smaller Nexus 5X are the only two smartphones that are available to purchase from Google Store.

If you want to buy a Nexus 6, you can still find it at Amazon, Best Buy, and other retailers, for as low as $349.99 off contract (32 GB model).

The Nexus 6 is the first (and only, until now) Nexus smartphone manufactured by Motorola, also being the first and only to sport a 6 inch display. Originally running Android Lollipop, the Nexus 6 is now being updated to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, and will be among the first devices to get the latest software updates from Google for about another year or so.

Besides its 6-inch Quad HD display, the Nexus 6 features a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, a 13 MP rear camera, 2 MP front-facing camera, 3 GB of RAM, and a 3220 mAh battery with wireless charging capabilities.

Good riddance. The Nexus 6 wasn't that great of a Nexus phone and it could have been much better. If Motorola ever does another Nexus, they should follow the MXPE as a blueprint since they actually did get that one right this time.

Nexus 6 was so great of a Nexus phone. And with MXPE, Motorola just nailed it to a T!

It could have been great, it may be great with MM since the terrible battery life might be fixed. But that camera is still awful.

It's camera rocks hard! Stop being a salty fan

Actually it doesn't, which is saying a lot since it has OIS while the MXPE doesn't and still manages to take much better photos and videos than the Nexus 6.

As long as it moto, It will drive Mxy nuts! I own the 64GB version and its freaking awesome especially with 6.0. Its camera are good! All the bug smash! For me i prefer it over Huawei 6P 5.7" screen. Not going to buy any phone smaller than 6" for me.

No. He can't. He's a serious hater when it comes to Motorola. Irrationally so. I've actually started to ignore him.

You mean your recent comments have gotten you in trouble when I refused to take the bait.

No trouble at all Michelle. That's just a pipe dream fantasy of yours. So sorry to burst your bubble... Naaaaaaaah! Who am I kidding? I couldn't care less about bursting your bubbles!

Good riddance to a half baked phone, RIP Nexus 6.

Nexus 6 does have issues such as battery life and software bugs at its earlier life cycle coupled with an expensive price tag of $600+ Now, those are history with Marshmallow Doze and i think its a good deal for those who want it.

I wouldn't be surprised to see me get over my fear of huge devices and grab this from a Best Buy or Amazon. I was unimpressed with the Nexus offerings at their price point this year, and the user reviews on nearly every site are so good. If I move off of Windows, pure Android is my preference. I think this will sing for the next couple years, and I trust the old Motorola (Google used the Moto engineering crowd while they owned it).

If the screen was a half in smaller... It really would have made difference. It was just too larger of a phone!

Thought this was the best of the Nexus devices. Even the 6p that has the bending issues?
