Snag a Nexus 6 for $48 off with T-Mobile promo code

nexus6handson

The Nexus 6 is one of the most popular Android smartphones on the block, and right now you can get one from T-Mobile at a discounted price.

T-Mobile is offering $48 off the price of a Nexus 6 with the promo code NEXUS6DEAL. Both the 32GB and 64GB Midnight Blue models are available, regularly priced at $649.92 and $699.84, respectively. T-Mobile says that it can ship the 32GB model immediately, but orders of the more capacious 64GB model aren’t expected to go out for 7-10 days.

This T-Mobile discount on the Nexus 6 is pretty nice for several reasons. Not only is the N6 still fairly new, but it’s also due to get Android updates in a speedy manner, and T-Mobile recently revealed that it’ll be updated to support its 700MHz airwaves in “early 2015”. So yeah, if you’re in the market for a new smartphone, you may want to mosey over to T-Mobile’s online shop and think about the Nexus 6.

    Still hasn’t convinced me to give up my N5 for this phablet.

      cool

  • 9to5Slavery

    I wish tmobile had more bands for aggregation.

  • james

    Got my n6 last week man

    • 9to5Slavery

      Cool story

  • Naruto44

    But you have to activate a new line to qualify in the deal 48off

  • dontsh00tmesanta

    I jumped to the 64gb model and got the 48 off after some discussion

    • mark

      what was the wording you used to get $48 off your JUMP? how were they able to apply the discount?

      • dontsh00tmesanta

        In essence the promo back in december when I got it did not specify only new lines…..

  • Android_God

    Does anyone know if the Nexus 6 comes with an FM radio?

    • Takethegoodpersontest

      Shouldn’t Android god know all things Android?

    • schweddyballs

      FM radio is not a huge feature people look for anymore, but plenty of apps in the app store will provide you with it. Any phone can potentially have FM radio lol

      • Cole Walter Tague

        The phone’s hardware has to have the radio. The international g3 has FM radio but for the at&t version it is not in it. Developers tried to add the software for it but it would not work because at&t had lg remove the hardware required.

  • HeatFan786

    Does it come with glue since some of the Nexus 6s have back plate issues?

    • schweddyballs

      My nexus 6 has 0 backplate issues. This is the same rationale people had during the iPhone bending days. Some electronics have defects, but the majority don’t.

      • HeatFan786

        But the Nexus 6 has more issues than other phones. Some people were noticing some screen burn in, backplate issues, supply issues, battery problems, etc. Add in the software issues and you have a great deal of problems.

        • Hector Arteaga

          No problems here. Wife and I both got them, great phones.

        • skywalkr2

          Absolutely NO ISSUES on my phone. Its as solid a phone as I have ever owned.

  • kalel33

    So the deal is that you can now buy it for the same price as you can on Google Play. At least it’s better than when they used to charge over $100 more than Google Play did for a Nexus device.

    • Henry Pham

      I’m seeing that both the Play store and T-Mobile show the same regular price. So with the discount TMobile is cheaper.

      • kalel33

        Yeah, I read it wrong above. Was up too late. It’s a good deal.

  • Chris Fisher

    I have JUMP! available on 2/5/15. I really wanted the LG G Flex 2 to be announced for T-Mobile so I’d know whether to save my JUMP! for that but with no announcement I will most likely get the Nexus 6 now..well, February 5th, and then jump to the Flex 2 when it arrives on T-Mobile.

    • HeatFan786

      Flex 2 has overheating problems. I would stay away from that.

      • Chris Fisher

        I’ll definitely keep an eye on this. My LG G3 is supposed to have overheating issues as well and I’ve not had an issue. I realize that my one story on my one phone doesn’t mean anything. Since T-Mobile has not even released that they are getting the phone I’ll have some time to see how the device does on other carriers.

        • Durandal_1707

          I used to have an LG phone (the G2x) which would overheat all the time. When it did, it would lock up and become unable to take calls, and even holding down the power button wouldn’t be able to turn it off. I had to take the backplate off, remove the battery, and put it back in, almost every day, and sometimes multiple times per day.

          I guess what I’m saying is, I’d be wary of getting an LG phone without a removable battery, because it’ll probably be a paperweight within a week.

        • Chris Fisher

          I’m 100% with you on the G2x. I hated that phone and even custom ROMs could not fix the issues with it since it was just bad hardware. I thought I’d never get another LG phone but the G2 is great. I then had the LG G Flex and now the LG G3 and I love the button placement, the software, and feel of the phone.

          I appreciate the warning and now I’m kind of happy that T-Mobile may get the phone later than other carriers so I can read reviews.

        • HeatFan786

          No, the LG G3 has heating issues overall. When I had one, it didn’t have much, but it uses a fail safe option of turning brightness down from 100% to 90% automatically because of heating. LG sticking an 801 in it was the worst thing they did to an otherwise solid phone. Add the laggy software and you have a few folks that wish they had a different stroke.

        • monkeybutts

          The average user won’t experience too many problems with the G3. But it really depends on what you do with the phone. Auto brightness is highly recommended on any phone unless you are outside all day.

        • HeatFan786

          But the idea that a phone cannot maintain full brightness for more than 15 minutes is absurd. The 805 was a lot better for the QHD screen concept since it is configured to be more efficient. I do read a lot of people feel the G3 has too much lag (especially on the 2GB of RAM model), the battery life wasn’t the best, and the UI is too overbearing. But that sounds similar to the Galaxy S Line too since there is too much lag and the UI is overbearing. I didn’t notice problems with the lag on it, but the UI was overbearing and hampered a bit of the experience.

    what screen do you enter the promo code on? i dont see a field for it anywhere. is that because I am a current subscriber?

    what are the chances I could go into a store and get this? i dont like buying something this valuable online.

    • monkeybutts

      I think it’s new customers only, try complaining to chat about it though they might give it to you for that price.

      • Dakota

        Or tweet Legere

    • jp

      You will most likely not be able to get it in the store. Online offers are for the online channel only.

  • Philip

    I remember buying my Nexus 4 from Google directly. My phone died of natural causes after troubleshoot with Google. They sent me a link to get another NEW phone and I print a prepaid label to ship it back to Google the dead phone. THATS THE DIFFERENCE! Betcha Tmo is not going to get you a new phone!

    • PiCASSiMO

      That will vary with Google. Our Nexus 4 replacement came in a refurb box. My last 5-replacements on my Nexus 5 came in refurb and one new box. Even the new one had an issue from the start (haptic feedback was damaged).

      • Dakota

        Lots of issues with Nexus 5 and Lollipop… Yeah they’ll send you refurbished but they all have the same problems and support sucks. Google is driving me into iPhone hands next time

  • PiCASSiMO

    Still too expensive… after dishing $400 for my 32GB Nexus 5, when it breaks or is lost, I’m probably not going to spend more than $200 for a replacement. There is no need for getting a flagship phone these days as our family back-up LG F6 that we’ve purchased for $40 recently is more than enough for our daily use.

  • Ordeith

    Not even in the top 100 on Amazon. Contract or not.

  • shamatuu

    48 bucks is nothing!.

    • Mr Paul

      Yeah, LOL like anyone is going to say: “Oh, I was a little turned off by the 650/700 dollar price tag, but 48 dollars off just makes me want to buy 2!”

  • Paul Garrison

    This is only for new activation, so…

    • will

      whats really the point of that now, given that they dont have contracts? if you didnt care about your phone number i suppose you could just cancel the service and start again…

      • Paul Garrison

        If you click on it and ready the fine-print, it say new activation. Don’t hate me, but it’s over now anyway.

    • Orlando Duran

      No its not….there is no contract

    • MSworab

      I called and they let me by it for one of my existing lines and gave the $48 off

      • Paul Garrison

        They let you by proves my point.

  • Khanh

    i wish tmobile can also sell the white one.. i want the white..

  • Plow Rox

    FYI The discount code “NEXUS6DEAL” works just fine for current T-Mobile Customers, wife used her jump to go from the Nexus 4 to get the Nexus 6 and they credited the account the $50. So it works for us old timers too :))
