Price slash: The Nexus 6 smartphone is now significantly cheaper at the Google Store
The Google-branded, Motorola-Made Nexus 6 is the Big G's current flagship smartphone, and although its phablet sizing has put some users off, the handset has reviewed rather well. With Android M and the next flagship Nexus on the horizon, Google has decided to slash the price of the Nexus 6 considerably for those in parts of Europe. In the U.K, the Google Store is shifting the 32-gig Nexus 6 for £304 ($475), while the 64 GB edition can be snapped up for the cost of £379 ($591). The Google Store has also reduced the device's cost in other parts of Europe, with German consumers able to purchase the Nexus 6 32 GB for €419 ($464), or the 64 GB model for €479 ($531).

The Nexus 5 is often referred to as the best Nexus smartphone to date, and with good reason. A solid build, great hardware and a very reasonable price tag was topped off nicely by the pure Android software that it ran. The Nexus 6, while ticking most of the high-end smartphone boxes, has always been weighed down a tad by its cost, allied to the fact that fewer people want 6-inch+ handsets. But if you can cope with such a large panel and would like to grab a premium smartphone for relatively cheap, now's your chance. 

As for the successor to the Nexus 6, Google could well go back to LG as the manufacturer, as it did with the much-vaunted Nexus 5. Apparently set to roll out in the fall, the handset may include a fingerprint scanner as well as a 3D dual-camera setup, but for now, this is mere speculation. 

As we continue to wait for further updates, those in the U.K. and Germany can get their hands on the Nexus 6 at its new price at the source.

Single factor of phablet keeps me away from N6
