Google’s Nexus 6 is Hard to Get

Getting hold of Google’s new Nexus 6 is no easy task

The Nexus 6 arrived at Google Play Store and sold out in a few minutes , leaving many users with honey on their lips, while filling out the purchase form, others had already sold out.

In less than half an hour Google Play was hanging the out-of-stock sign, unmarked when it would be available again . But the new shipments have met the same fate, turning the phone into the most desired and sought-after object of the moment.

Already in Spain

A couple of days ago we told you that the Nexus 6 had arrived at the Spanish Play Store, but that, it has arrived but without an option to buy. Even today it still has a sign in the store saying “Coming soon” but without any sign of a date to buy the smartphone.

Not that it is a cheap phone, because it is not, and even less if we compare it with the price policy that Google has always had with its Nexus range and seeing the starting price of the Nexus 5, which was practically half. In this case comes in two models, 32Gb and 64 Gb, at a price of 649 euros and 699 euros, respectively.

Moreover, as if the price were not already high, comes with the dreaded and hated conversion 1 dollar 1 euro, which raises the price by about 130 euros more for each model , just for that reason.

Is it that hard to get?

Well, it seems that this is the case and the real reason we do not know if it is because there is a very high demand, which may be, or simply because the stock is very scarce, which is also the case.

Last week, new stock was received at the stores in the United States, to meet this high demand. Google’s intention is to bring new units every week, specifically on Wednesdays, in order to meet the demand and stop it from being almost a legend, rather than a reality. It even jokes that getting hold of the Nexus 6 is as difficult as seeing a Unicorn, as we have seen in phoneArena.

In this diagram you can see if you can get the Nexus 6.

It summarizes in a few words and in a very simple way, the availability of the Nexus 6 today.

A very powerful smarphone

The new Nexus 6 is an expensive smartphone, yes, but it is also one of the most powerful you can find on the market. The phone manufactured by Motorola features a 6-inch screen (5.96 to be exact) with a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels and 493 ppi. The Snapdragon 805 processor and the 3 Gb RAM, plus a 13 Mp camera, complete a device that has plenty of power.

If you want to know the smartphone first hand and see its features in more detail, we leave you with a video of its unboxing, which we published a few days ago but you may have missed it.

We will see if it is possible to buy now definitely from Spanish Play Store in the next weeks and if that weekly supply with new units also arrives here.

Are you planning on getting the Nexus 6? If the answer is yes, leave us in the comments because you want to buy it and because you prefer the Google phone over other models.
