With the launch of the Nexus 6P and 5X, the Nexus 6 has lost its status as Google’s flagship smartphone. And so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the N6 has been pulled from the virtual shelves of Google’s online store.
The Google Store now lists the Nexus 6 as “no longer available for purchase.” Since you can no longer buy it from Google, the Nexus 6 has been pulled from the Phones section of the Google Store as well, leaving the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X as the only two devices on that page.
Of course, since this is the Internet, the Nexus 6’s removal from the Google Store doesn’t mean that it’s impossible to buy. Amazon is still selling the 32GB Midnight Blue model for $349.99, and Expansys-USA has the 32GB in both Midnight Blue and Cloud White for $369.99. Expansys is also offering the 64GB Midnight Blue model for $469.99 if you’re interested in a more capacious device.
The Nexus 6 caught a lot of flak during its reign atop the Nexus pile, with many folks criticizing its size and price tag. I really enjoyed my time with the Nexus 6 — though I am an admitted phablet fan — and I think that it’s a pretty solid option for folks that want a big phone on a budget. It may not be Google’s flagship Nexus anymore, but it’s still a Nexus that’ll get Android updates faster than most other Android devices.
