Deal: Motorola Slashes Nexus 6 by $150 for Limited Time

Google, Amazon, and Best Buy all recently dropped the Nexus 6 by $150 to $499. We don’t know if that price drop is temporary or not, but Motorola seems to be on board with the deal. From today through June 23, you can buy the Nexus 6 in 32GB or 64GB at $150 off. You can even finance the discounted phone for 12 months if you don’t want to pay for it all up front.

The Nexus 6 may be a whale, but it’s a whale that is controlled by Google. In other words, you can never go wrong with a Nexus. Here is our Nexus 6 review from a few months back.

Verizon’s Moto X (1st Gen) has a Soak Test Incoming, Lollipop? (Updated: Nope!)

A soak test for Verizon’s Moto X (1st gen) is about to begin, likely in preparation for the phone’s update to Android 5.1 Lollipop. Invites for the test arrived in the inboxes of a handful of our readers, but I should point out that the emails don’t seem to specifically mention Lollipop.
