Nexus 6 on sale at Amazon, pricing starts at $249.99

nexus6rearsmall

If you’ve been thinking of starting 2016 with a new smartphone, Amazon can help you out.

Amazon is selling the 32GB Nexus 6 for $249.99. The N6 comes new and factory unlocked, and the 32GB model is available in both Cloud White and Midnight Blue. If you’d like more storage — and you might, since the N6 doesn’t have a microSD slot — Amazon is selling the 64GB Nexus 6 in Cloud White and Midnight Blue for $299.99.

The Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P may be the new hotness on the Nexus block, but the Nexus 6 is still going to be a solid smartphone for most everyone. And on T-Mobile, the N6 has received its Android 6.0.1 update, complete new emoji and other Marshmallow-y goodness.

If you’d like to treat yourself to a discounted Nexus 6, hit up the Amazon link below.

    Some of them are used even though amazon say its new i bought one two weeks ago and it was used

    • J.J.

      I’d be pissed… And sending it back if possible! Nothing like pulling that plastic off for the first time….. I think I have a problem?

      • Benben

        They gave me 100$ back so l kept it

        • J.J.

          Sweet deal then lol

        • Acdc1a

          I’d take a slightly used one for $149 and $199 respectively. Very nice.

    • Battery

      How is the Nexus 6 battery life?

      • Benbeb

        Battery life is better than I expected

  • Guest

    I Might buy this. Is the US unlocked version fully compatable with t-mobile? Ie wifi calling and volte?

    • gmo8492

      Yes, it completely supports both those features and supports T-Mobiles band 12 LTE.

      • Stefan Naumowicz

        Incorrect…. It does not offer either of those features

        • Enrique Escobar

          yes it does!! i have one, bought it from google play and it supports both features

        • Medion

          I think he’s trolling.

    • Stefan Naumowicz

      It is compatible with all tmo bands, but does not have WiFi calling or volte. Don’t listen to the other guy.

    • Brad

      Definitely has those features.

  • David

    These were $199 during black friday I believe and the 64GB version were $249. So might as well wait a little bit longer.

    • Medion

      They’re not being made anymore. The BF deal was meant to clear stock, and it didn’t. I wouldn’t gamble, for anyone who truly wants one.

      • DILAW IDDAHLA

        It’s a good deal, but I suggest trying out the phone. I had a Note 3 when I got the N6. I really wanted to keep it, but a few flaws ruined it for me. Battery life, camera is so so (I had a Note 3 which had a better camera), headset speaker static, curved design rocks when touching the phone while sitting on a desk, FFC speakers are awesome, but using the speaker when making calls is not as crisp/clear as even the Note 2 nor 3.

        • Nexus 6 versus Note Line

          I was thinking about upgrading, based on your comment it appears the Note 3 or Samsung Note line has a slight edge

        • Acdc1a

          Opinions are like a**holes, everyone has them. I went from the Note 3 to the Nexus 6 and there’s no way I’d look back. I’m also in a Band 12 market so that also factors in…but I’d take my phone over the wife’s Note 4 any day of the week.

        • Nexus 6 versus Note Line…

          Yes, you may be right about opinions…may be, I was trying to simply obtain feedback based on actual user experience with both devices (software, camera, battery…). As someone posted earlier, I will purchase the N6 device and determines if it fits the bill.

        • Acdc1a

          My experience is the camera is better than most people give it credit for, certainly as good as the Note 3 despite other comments. It is not a top tier camera and stock Android software still isn’t fantastic, but unless you’re a photographer or like to make posters out of your pictures you won’t really notice.

          There’s no question that for most tech users stock Android is the way to go. The original Nexus 6 plows through any task you throw at it with ease, very un-Note 3 like. TouchWiz is heavy on the Note 3 and the phone is starting to show its age with lag.

          Battery life is as good as can be expected on such a large phones. Most days I can go all day, there are days of heavy usage where the phone has to be plugged in before bedtime. The good news is the thing charges very fast.

          When you get yours I’m interested to see what you think.

        • Nexus 6 versus Note Line…

          Awesome, thank you, I will you know my thoughts…

        • opinions..lol…im done with samsung. bad HAL stuff. Nexus was made to root

        • camera on N6 with 6.0.1 rocks

  • Matt

    No SD card slot and a “baked in” battery kills it for me.

    • Medion

      I agree with you on the battery, but what options do we have left?

      LG G4? G5 is rumored to go with sealed battery.
      Lumia 950 series? It’s Windows 10 Mobile, and the Surface phone rumored to supplant it is likely to have a sealed battery.

      We lost that battle. I miss user replaceable batteries.

      • Matt

        It’s quite simple really, I’m going to stick to lower end phones. Hell, the LG Stylo is perfect. No one really needs a high end phone, they want one. I can think of better things to spend money on than a flagship phone.

        • DILAW IDDAHLA

          The LG Stylo is actually not a bad phone. I got it for one of my siblings for $199 from T-Mo. Nice phone. N6 is a nice phone, but the battery life I experienced was disappointing.

        • Battery Life…

          In follow-up, how is the battery life, average…? I have the LG Stylo, however, I am thinking about the Nexus 6…

        • DILAW IDDAHLA

          I had the N6 before marshmallow, but on lollipop the N6 battery was disappointing. The stylo battery life was better. Both were on lollipop. I can tell you and I swear that my nexus 7 2013 battery life got worse after the marshmallow update. N6 users claim battery life improved on marshmallows but none say it a dramatic improvement

        • Battery Life…

          Thank you for your response!

        • Acdc1a

          I can’t speak for the Stylo but i have the Nexus 6. It’s better than any flagship phone I’ve ever used and I’ve used the majority right up until the S6, Note 5, and G4. For $249 you really can’t get more phone for the money.

        • Battery Life…

          Thank you, I ordered the device (Nexus 6)…

        • patt

          It was 199.99 on bf. You overpaid still

        • Battery Life…

          Okay, you are right (smile)… but it is still a greater bargain than paying $600.00 or $700. 00 dollars for the other flag ship devices.

        • patt

          Depends the phone is not that great and way to big

        • Acdc1a

          It won’t be $199.99 for new stock again. You can take that to the bank.

        • patt

          I would never buy a Nexus6.

        • agreed. I missed 199 but got it at 249 monday before xmas

      • Deibid

        The zte Zmax 2 is a great phone and for the price you can’t beat it. Just bought the at&t Gophone zte Zmax 2 for $99. The unlock code was free from at&t unlock website. It has a removable battery and bands 2,4,12. Can’t beat the price!

        • spamnrice

          I have the Zmax 1.. do you know if your battery is better and have you confirmed B12 is working? thinking about “upgrading” lol

        • Deibid

          The battery is a champ! And it’s removable so it makes to so great to get another one. It’s a 3000mah (Zmax one is slightly larger) but it lasts forever.

          Haven’t tried band 12 yet (usually on band 4 here in San Diego). I don’t think you can go wrong for $99 though. Wally world also has it for this price now.

        • spamnrice

          Sweet. I live in SD also and although we don’t have B12 yet, I go to Anaheim and LA a lot. I love my Zmax so it’s worth it to try the 2 for $99. Just assumed it was only for ATT. Didn’t think about unlocking.

        • Deibid

          At&t unlocks for free on their website. Just remember to always select non at&t customer. Took about 3 days to get the unlock code sent. Works with tmobile flawlessly (sans wifi calling which I’ve never needed).

        • spamnrice

          Are you rooted? I was going to buy this phone today but I can’t find any guides to root the Zmax 2 and that is a must for me.

        • rooting on zmax 1 was a no go. dead issue

        • I know for a fact that on t mobile band 12 700 mhz was working on Zmax 1. T mob finally issued a patch and turned it on. Now of course long beach Ca does not have much band 12 but nice to know I can get it is I want on Nexus 6 as well. (but I have not tested it yet)

      • dtam

        I’d get a g4. my nexus 6 is slightly too big, the wife’s g4 is the perfect size

      • J.J.

        Yea not much left on the battery/SD card front. I can lived with the “baked” in battery if they make it large enough, which seems to never be the case.

      • I agree that most phones going forward will be sealed. No SD card. No batt removal. The apple sheep have accepted this for years

    • Panzer

      You’re probably going to be disappointed with phones going forward.

      • Matt

        I’m just going to stick to budget phones.

  • As of Jan 12 2016 the “new” 249.00 phones seem to be gone. I got one at 249.00 the monday before xmas from amazon. in sealed box. New. Got the 6.0.1 update right away and also the jan sec update last night. Thanks google. No thanks to you t mobile. If you want updates get a nexus device unlocked with no phone co branding on it. I had the tmobile ZTE Zmax and I will tell you that the battery on that phone on kit kat 4.4 will last 3 x as long as the Nexus 6 on marshmallow. Just the facts. But that Zte phone would pretty much outlast anything out there. But updates? Forget about it on t mobile. They are not going to update any cheapo phones. No money in that.

    • Improved Performance…

      After the software update (marshmallow ), did you notice improveed battery performance?

      • since I got the phone dec 24 and it immediately updated to 6.0.1 I dont know what batt life was like before. Its “ok” now but if I am on the phone all day forget it. It will be done by 6pm. Google does need to think more about battery life as apposed to silly crap. Who out there has a phone that complains that battery life is too long? I do like the turbo charger. Very slick. 1800-1900 mAh charging in about 1 hr

    • WhatsWIth

      What do you mean “new” phones. Aren’t the ones they are selling on Amazon new?

      • J.J.

        I have seen on forums that this deal/seller sometimes slips a few used phones out the door, but I hear if you complain they may give you some money back or full return

        • NexusPhones

          How can you tell us used?

        • J.J.

          I would say broken seal (unless otherwise stated that they unsealed for some reason), no retail plastic on screen, accessories/paperwork missing or open, any marks, Knicks, scuffs anywhere on phone, phone boots up not in setup mode among other things.

      • if you read all the amazon listings you will see that many (nexus 6) are used from 3rd party sellers. Also anything that comes with no box or in an open box I really dont consider as “new” as far as phones go. A week ago everyone was boasting another price drop on amazon but there were no new phones for sale. odd

    • J.J.

      I feel your pain but a little research would show you zte and updates are never in the same sentence. Plus when buying a $200 range phone history tells us it will not be updated often. If updates are important to you my advise is do as you did and stay with an unlocked nexus with no branding, or if you don’t mind waiting a bit on an update an unlocked no branded current flagship from moto/lg. They seem to be semi decent with updates.

      • I dont know about LG. GF has the G3 and it is still on 5.0.1. Same with the LG tablet. Taking over a year for ANY update is not acceptable. Its as if HP would need to approve your MS updates on your computer. We need to get beyond the phone co. model that exists now. Its flawed. The 5.0.1 version has an alarm flaw. Huge problem for some people. As for ZTE well that phone was the same price at the nexus 6 on Amazon and the nexus gets updates. Again the handset makers “overlays” like touchwiz are cute and all but getting in the way of security updates

        • J.J.

          very true the system is flawed. if im not mistaken i believe some are getting 6.0 now on the g3, but yes the process is too slow. as for the zte zmax its a bit unfair to compare pricing to update schedule currently since the nexus 6 msrp was $700(and a google sponsored phone) compared to the much cheaper msrp of the zmax. i for one can appreciate some of the added features of overlays, but as you stated they should never get in the way of performance and security updates as they currently do. good luck and enjoy that 6. i have to slap the credit card out of my hand every time i see it on sale. lol

  • Roger Sales

    Does an unlocked Nexus 6 support VoLTE over band 12? I know on some devices that’s an issue.

    • Yes…

      Yes, please check the specifications…

  • Panzer

    God I should have waited to buy my Nexus 6.

    • Nexus 6 Experience…

      How is the Nexus 6 battery life, especially, after the software update?

      • Panzer

        Marshmallow in general has been great. 6.0.1 I’m seeing two and a half days with minimal use. 8-10 hours with extreme use.

  • 2areBetterThanOne

    Well, I bought 2 of the d*mn things. Hope it was a good choice. I figure they should be good for a couple of years and a 6p is just too much. I got a 64 gig and by the time I decided on another one they were out of those so I got a 32 gig. I may sell that one later.
