Nexus 6 32GB drops to $249 at Amazon, 64GB available for $299


Ever since the Nexus 5X and 6P were released, we’ve seen quite a few discounts on the Nexus 6. Today another sale has appeared, offering one of the best prices we’ve seen on 2014’s Nexus flagship.

Amazon is selling the 32GB Nexus 6 in both Cloud White and Midnight Blue for $249.99. If you need more storage for apps, music, photos, or whatever else, you can get the 64GB Nexus 6 in Cloud White for $299.99. No matter which model you choose, you can get your new N6 before Christmas if you’re an Amazon Prime member.

The Nexus 6’s spec list includes a 5.9-inch 2560×1440 AMOLED display, Snapdragon 805 processor, 13-megapixel camera, 3220mAh battery, and dual front-facing speakers. So while it’s not the freshest Nexus on the block, it’s still got a respectable feature set that ought to serve most folks well for a while. And while it took Android 6.0 a bit longer than expected to hit N6 units running on T-Mobile, the Android 6.0.1 update came quickly, just like you’d expect from a Nexus.

    This is a seriously killer deal. It has a *Snapdragon 805* though, not 801.

    • Ascertion

      805 is better than the 801, though.

      • MJ

        Just pointing out the author’s typo. The article states that it has a snap 801, but it actually has the more powerful 805 chip.

      It’s getting funny. If you break your screen it costs about $200 to get it replaced… but a brand new phone… only $250.

      • Acdc1a

        The time is coming when all but fruit will be sub $400…and like the ealy PC days…by the time Fruitco figures it out the masses will have left.

          To be honest, I feel like they’re making some unnecessarily arrogant moves that are heading them in that direction as well.

          Making a Mac with only -1- USB C port (that’s also the charging port) for instance, and the rumors of them removing the headphone jack in the upcoming iphone and requiring users to use a proprietary lightning headphone connector instead.

          There’s also them not embracing touch for Desktops and Laptops, and not making hybrid touch/mouse+keyboard productivity devices like the Surface Pro, and now I feel like they’re making odd, alienating moves and being out innovated by people like Microsoft (MICROSOFT!) of all people.

          Not to say I don’t like their products, just that if they don’t watch it, they’ll become irrelevant again.

          I actually like the iPhone for ease of use if nothing else. The issue is cost vs. functionality. There is nothing a brand new iPhone can do that a 2 generation old Android flagship can’t. Consumerism is a huge issue in this country and Apple feeds it.

          When we get to another recession it’s my belief that the anti-consumer things you mentioned will haunt Apple most.

    Does this version support wifi calling?

    • Anthony

      Yea, if you flash it with the rom from google…

      • SirStephenH

        The builds are unified. No need to flash a specific ROM for a specific Carrier. Just update to the latest build.

    • SirStephenH

      Yes. It’s built into Android 6.0.1.


    I bought this phone twice. I really wanted to love it and keep it, but the battery life compared to my note 4 is not even average. When I had the N6 I used to run out of battery by 6 pm almost everyday while my note still has around 30% – 35%. I loved the nexus experience and also the design of the phone

  • Acdc1a

    Bought mine. Thanks for the timely info!

  • Awesome…

    Awesome, thank you for the tip. I just purchased one from Amazon. The price on T-mobile online is $399.00 certified pre-owned. So, this is a great savings!!

  • KenP

    I bought my Nexus 6 from Amazon for $349 about 3 months ago and thought it was a good deal. LTE Band 12, wifi calling, Android 6.0.1 operating system, wireless charging, and fast charging are some of its key features. Negative for some is it’s large size for pockets. At $249, this is a steal.

    • Chris

      Yeah, I should’ve waited haha. But oh well, no buyer’s remorse here.

    • Nexus 6 Battery Life…

      It is an awesome deal, I just purchased the Nexus 6 today, how is the battery life? Thanks!

      • KenP

        About average. The automatic android 6 “doze” feature extends the battery life when the phone is not in use. I have a wireless charging pad which i find extends life to a full day since I lay the phone on the pad when not using it (and therefore the phone gets a trickle charge several hours a day).


        I used to charge the phone overnight. I wake up at 7:30 am and takes it off the charger and by noon it’s around 60% with normal usage (no video streaming, just texting here and there, checking email around 5 times and Bluetooth on the whole time). But 5 to 6 pm I used to be below 20%. You definitely need to charge it more than once a day. Great phone, but battery life and poor headset speaker when making calls not very good in my opinion

      • I’m almost thinking it would make a great backup phone at this price. I had a 6 for a year before I bought my V10. Battery life was MUCH improved by many of the custom ROMs out there. Take your pick, they pretty much beat even stock Marshmallow.

  • Alvin Brinson

    Kinda wish I hadn’t bought a OnePlus One a few months ago… Now I can’t justify this!… ohwell. I’ll take my Free LTE through 2017 from T-Mobile and be happy.

    • steveb944

      Why would you get a One so late when there were better options at that time? Even waiting for the Two would have been better.

  • gmo8492

    The Nexus 6 was $50 cheaper than this if you were lucky enough to get it on Black Friday.

    • Acdc1a

      I missed it. Didn’t miss this one though.

  • dtam

    anyone else have wifi connection problems?

  • Mike Palomba

    What ever happened to the new app that was supposed to launch?

    • Ascertion

      It was leaked on Reddit. No official post I don’t think.

  • JMccovery

    If I didn’t have a new Note 4, I would’ve jumped on the 64GB N6… *sigh* Oh well, loving what I have.

  • Panzer

    Just got off the phone with a T-mobile tech rep told me that the reason I’m having slow data is because of the 6.0.1 update. Also said the expected fix should be around the first week of january.

    • Acdc1a

      HMM…I’m not having that issue. Did they provide some insight as to what about the update might have caused it?

      I did find as everyone else has mentioned that when I get on band 12 it’s quite slow though usable.

    • williejackbrainer

      Slow data? I’m on 6.0.1 and my data is fine. I haven’t noticed any data issues regarding slow data speeds.
