Google Store discounts see $200 price cut on Nexus 9, $80 off Nexus 5X [Amazon too]

Update: B&H also has the Nexus 5X at $80 off across the board.

Update: Looks like Amazon is upping the competition. The online retailer has price-matched the Google Store, and you can now pick up the 16GB Nexus 5X for $299 in black or white.  Sadly, the 32GB version is back-ordered, but the price is still listed at $349, the same as Google’s discounted price.

While you could pick up last year’s Nexus 6 64GB at a ridiculously low price ($260) on Amazon earlier today, Google’s official online store has some discounts of its own to offer for Black Friday. Perhaps most attractive is the $80 price cut on one of this year’s newest Nexus phones.

You can now buy the 32GB Nexus 5X for just $349 (down from $429), while the 16GB version is $299. At time of writing, all color options are in stock, but the discount only applies while inventory is there.  While it’s not the biggest discount we’ve ever seen, it’s still very generous given how new the Nexus 5X is. Google only announced the product last month, and it’s one of the only available phones to support Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box.

While stocks last, you can also snag the Nexus 9 at a discount. The tablet is down to just $199 for the 16GB version and $279 for the 32GB model, cutting the price down by a hefty $200. As things stand (at least until the Pixel C is available), the Nexus 9 is currently one of the only tablets available offering a pure Android experience. Multiple manufacturers have Android tablets on the market, but most come with a boat-load of bloatware. For $199 I’d argue you can’t get a better Android tablet if you value performance and software purity.

If you’re curious to see what other deals are out there today, be sure to bookmark 9to5Toys’ Black Friday page and 9to5Mac’s Black Friday Gameplan.

Along with all of its usual wide-ranging discounts, Amazon has slashed the prices of its own hardware for Black Friday. Despite the fact that its newest Android-based tablets were already crazily good value for money, you can now pick them up even cheaper. Prices now start as low as $35 for a Kindle Fire tablet, while the special Kids Edition and HD 6 have seen generous discounts too…

Nexus 6 down to an incredible $199 for Black Friday [Sold Out]

Update 2: 64GB ‘Deal of the Day’ model is also now sold out in both Midnight Blue and Cloud White. Update 1: As you’d expect, a deal this good didn’t last long. Amazon has already sold out of its 32GB ‘deal of the day’ inventory, but you can still pick up the 64GB version for $259.

A few months ago when the Nexus 6 dropped below $300 for the first time, we stood aghast at the sheer value of the deal. It’s still one of the best big phones available, especially if you want a pure Android experience. For today only, one of Amazon’s deals of the day is the Nexus 6, and it’s dropped to just $199 for the 32GB model or just $259 for the 64GB version.

For that kind of money, I can’t think of a single phone that comes close to offering the same experience as the Nexus 6. It may be last year’s flagship, but it’s still very much a flagship. It features a 5.9-inch Quad HD resolution AMOLED screen, 3GB RAM, Snapdragon 805 processor, 13MP camera and a 3220mAh battery, all in a solid metal-framed device with a comfortable (albeit really big) rounded back. What’s more, it supports Quick-Charge technology for superfast charging and is one of the few devices that already supports Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

If you’re after the best Android experience possible, but don’t want to pay a lot of money to get it, you won’t regret buying the Nexus 6, unless you really don’t want a big phone. It’s one of my personal favorites of the past year and — until the new Moto X came out — was my daily driver for months.
