The Nexus lineup has always had a fan following of its own right from the time the first Nexus smartphone came out from the stable of HTC. The last couple of iterations, the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 were a success globally but things haven’t really clicked in the current iteration of the smartphone, the Nexus 6.
The Nexus 6 from Motorola went a little over the board in terms of real estate on offer and that made the device less pocketable than some of its counterparts. We have absolutely no complaints from the resolution, protection, colour reproduction or contrast of the smartphone but a size of 6-inches seems a little too much to handle even for the fans of phablets. The smartphone couldn’t take off in the sales department as much as Google and Motorola would have liked it too and it failed miserably despite being a good smartphone under the hood.
Motorola recently dropped the price of Nexus 6 in India by Rs 7,000 which made the device available at a price of Rs 36,999 instead of Rs 43,999 for the 32GB version and at Rs 41,999 instead of Rs 48,999 for the 64GB version. It seems like that the price cut didn’t help the cause either and Motorola has further reduced the price of the device by another Rs 2,000.
You can now buy the 32GB version for Rs 34,999 and 64GB version for Rs 39,999. Flipkart is further offering an exchange offer under which you can exchange your older smartphone for up to Rs 5,000. With a price drop of Rs 9,000 over the initial price, the new price surely makes the smartphone worth the consideration.
It packs in a 5.9-inch QHD AMOLED display, 2.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, Adreno 420 GPU, 3GB of RAM, 32GB/64GB of internal storage space, a 13-megapixel primary camera with OIS and dual-LED flash, 2-megapixel front camera and a 3,220mAh battery.
