After looking through Newegg’s massive big Black Friday sales event this morning, we picked out a couple of items that we thought may be of interest.
The first is a brand new Nexus 6 32GB for just $288.99. As far as I can tell, that’s the lowest price we have seen on this phone to date. Now, I know it’s a year old, but trust me when I say that this phone runs so beautifully smooth on Marshmallow. In fact, it’s almost a more buttery experience than what we are seeing on the two new Nexus phones, if you can believe that. (more…)
The Nexus 6, last year’s flagship Nexus device, is back for a third or fourth (I’ve lost track) time through an eBay deal for an absurdly low $289 price. And again, this for for a brand new, unlocked Nexus 6 in Midnight Blue with 32GB of storage. This is also the XT1103 model, which is the North American variant that works on all carriers here, including Verizon.
The deal includes free economy shipping and probably shouldn’t be passed on if you are in need of a really good phone, but have less than $300 to spend.

Google just posted a whole bunch of new factory images for its line of Nexus devices, likely as November’s monthly security update (Yep, here are the details.). We have both Android 6.0 Marshmallow and Android 5.1.1 Lollipop images, depending on the device, of course. (more…)
UPDATE 10/28: IT’S BACK! Who knows why it was pulled initially, but it’s back at $289 with free shipping. [DEAL LINK] (more…)

Update: Looks like the seller didn’t like selling you last year’s Nexus 6, a perfectly good phone even for late 2015, at that ridiculously low price. The listing has been pulled.
I know that you are all awaiting the shipment notification for your Nexus 6P orders, or maybe our review of it, or maybe to see if it’s good a few months down the road, but if you need an excellent phone to temporarily pass the time, check out this deal on the Nexus 6 over at eBay. For $289, you can have a brand new, unlocked Nexus 6 with 32GB of storage. That’s nuts!
Remember, this phone originally retailed for $649 when launched. It’s now well under half the price that Google and the silly carrier partners it joined with last year thought it was worth.
And look, this phone isn’t as good as the 6P. But after spending some time with it on official Android 6.0 Marshmallow over the past few days, I’m starting to think that it may be better than the newly announced Nexus 5X. This is still a solid option, especially at that price.

One of the most common requests we hear during our initial period with a new phone is “How does it compare to this phone or that phone?” To get out ahead of that we put together this video, which is 10 minutes of the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X compared to the hottest phones on the planet, including the Moto X Pure, iPhone 6, Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note 5, LG V10, and of course, the original Nexus 5 and Nexus 6.
This video isn’t a software, performance, or feature comparison, it’s more of a, how this phone feels and looks next to that phone, type of comparison. We do this with most phones and you all seem to enjoy them, so here is that same approach with the new Nexus devices. (more…)
Update 10/16: Nexus 6 .zip files added for general, T-Mobile, and Project Fi.
Google told us yesterday that Android 6.0 Marshmallow OTA updates were starting to rollout to the Nexus devices set to receive them, so like we always do for major updates, we have started capturing all of the URLs for the .zip files for each. Below, you will find Android 6.0 Marshmallow OTA .zip files for the Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7 (2013), Nexus 9, and Nexus Player.
If you aren’t seeing a file just yet, that’s because we probably haven’t seen it yet. As we continue to receive new file URLs that are direct downloads from Google, we will continue to update this post. (more…)
It’s back (for the 3rd time)! The Nexus 6 32GB for $299 is back at eBay today. Who knows for how long, but previous week’s similar deals sold out pretty quickly. If you want last year’s Nexus before it’s gone forever, now would be the time to jump on it.
As a reminder, this phone originally retailed for $650. Quite the discount in less than 12 months.
