After a lot of rumors about the new LG Nexus 5X and the Huawei Nexus 6 coming out around the end of September or beginning of October, the fact that the Motorola Nexus 6 is now available at a bargain price simply clears all doubt about the upcoming new releases.
The Motorola Nexus 6 was originally launched at $650 and is now available for $350 on Amazon.com. This means that the price have been cut down with a whopping $300, ever since the smartphone got launched. However, the $350 price is for the 32GB storage version, while the 64GB storage version still costs $400.

Should you buy a Motorola Nexus 6?
If you are looking to purchase a new smartphone, or you simply want to have a second one as a backup, you can’t really go wrong with the Motorola Nexus 6. The phone has specifications that would make other smartphones look very dull and slow, even though the phone is almost a year old, which is like an eternity in the technology field.
By cutting the prices for its Nexus 6 models, Motorola created a serious threat for its own brand new Moto X Pure Edition smart phones, which started with its pre-orders only a couple of days ago. The new Moto X Pure Edition starts at $399, while the year-old Nexus 6 goes for $350 for the 32GB version and $400 for the 64GB version.
The Motorola Nexus 6 also has other advantages over the Moto X Pure Edition, such as having a larger display and larger battery, which means that you will be able to use your smartphone longer throughout the day. The Nexus 6 also has a superior GPU compared to the Moto X Pure Edition, and its camera features optical image stabilization.
However, the Moto X Pure Edition does have a much higher resolution main camera and front camera. The Moto X Pure Edition also allows you to insert your own micro SD card for more flash storage, while the Nexus 6 does not. It is really up to your own taste whether you should buy the Nexus 6 or not, and the size of your wallet of course.
