The long wait for the new Nexus 6 has finally come (almost) to an end. We now know exactly what to expect from the device and much of what to expect from Android 5.0 Lollipop. We have a preorder date, availability, and a tentative release window for the device. And, we have a surprising price tag on the new Google handset: $649.
In the general scheme of things, this price tag shouldn't really be all that surprising. The iPhone 6 costs $649 on full retail and the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is listed at $699 on Verizon and a whopping $849 on AT&T. Except for a couple notable exceptions, smartphones tend to cost around $600 at full retail. Nexus devices had been one of those exceptions with price tags in the $300 to $400 range. But, for whatever reason, this year is different. This year, the price tag for the Nexus 6 mirrors that of other flagship devices, and we want to know how you feel about that (though we can hazard a guess).
So, let us know: what do you think about the Nexus 6 price tag? Should a Nexus cost the same as other flagships? Is it too much? Do you even care, or were you not planning to buy a Nexus anyway? Vote in the poll, and let us know in the comments.
