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.
