Sprint now offering the Nexus 6 for $299.99 on contract
Sprint customers desiring the drool producing, beastly Nexus 6, can now purchase the device fromthe carrier. Whether you choose instant gratification by walking into a physical Sprint store, or choose to order the stock Android handset online, it will cost you $299.99 with a signed two-year pact. Those using Sprint Easy Pay can put $0 down and pay 24 monthly installments of $29. Or, another option is to pay the full retail price, which is $696.

Why does drool form on your lips when you see the phone? Well, it could be due to the phone's specs. The Nexus 6 is equipped with a 6-inch screen with a 1440 x 2560 resolution, producing a 493ppi pixel density. A quad-core 2.7GHz Snapdragon 805 CPU powers the phone, which features the Adreno 420 GPU crunching graphics. 3GB of RAM is on board, and there is 32GB of native storage inside. A 13MP camera is on back, and includes OIS. On front, you will find a 2MP shooter. The 3220mAh battery keeps the ceiling fan spinning, and Android 5.0 is pre-installed.

It is interesting that a missed shipment of Nexus 6 units has forced T-Mobile to delay the launch of the phone, while Sprint is plowing ahead with today's release of the device.

Now it was a good thing I took advantage of getting the Note 4 with the trade in promo of $200 for an old phone (bought one of of eBay for $20). It came out to $100 before tax on contract with Sprint before taxes less cost of the trade in phone. Good thing I didn't wait, plus the Note 4 is a great phone overall as well! I was thinking about the Nexus 6 but didn't want to wait.

Well let me help some of you clueless people. I bought A Nexus 6 from Sprint, and it only cost me the price of the total amount in taxes. Sprint's no contract plan is like a reverse contract plan. Pay 29.00 a month, and sign up for the 60.00 unlimited plan and you will have the phone paid off in two years just like the contact plan with no upfront cost. My unlimited plan now cost $85.00 for calls, text, and data no throttling. With the Nexus 6 on the 60.00 unlimited text, and data I pay $29.00 for a total of $89.00. This is $4.00 more a month than I am paying now and my enrollment cost was only the cost of the taxes for this phone. There is no interest like when paying a credit car, and you can pay off the phone early at any time. The catch is you must have good credit, or be with Sprint for a few years....that's it. Tax cost vary state by state, and anyone that moans at this deal just wants it for free, and don't deserve it!

Wow.. Im glad I didn't wait. Google is never going to get sales like this. Before someone says the nexus line isn't about sales look into the reason it's on carriers

I'd go with the 6+ over the N6 if I had to choose and I've never even owned an iPhone.

I own an IPhone 6+ and held this phone in my hand and to be honest it feels great, Android 5.0 is great the only thing I did not like was the screen for some odd reason.. Too dim, overall great phone...

That's a hard pill to swallow when the last Nexus was only $50 more outright. No matter how much more was put into the phone, going from $350 to $650 is gonna shock people.
