Going back to at least the Nexus 4, inventory shortages have been the name of the game when it comes to the release of new Nexus devices. Often it can take months or more of fighting and struggling before stock reaches a stable point, as was especially true with the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5.
Keeping with tradition, the Google Store’s inventory for the Huawei-made Nexus 6P hasn’t been without hiccups, with shipping times slipping to a month or even slightly longer. There’s also been at least a few storage and color options that have seen “temporarily out of stock” notices since the phone’s release as well. The good news is that, at least for the moment, the Nexus 6P is now fully in stock with a shipping estimate of just 1-2 days for all colors and storage variants.
Considering the fact the Nexus 6P hasn’t been on the market very long just yet, we wouldn’t be surprised if some of these configurations end up seeing more supply constraints in the weeks to come. In other words, if you really want a Nexus 6P without any unnecessary wait, now is the time to buy.
Is the Nexus 6P worth picking up? The answer to that question depends on what you’re personally looking for, though you’ll want to check out our full review to get a better idea of what to expect from the handset. As a quick refresher, the Nexus 6P is powered by a Snapdragon 810 processor with 3GB RAM. Other specs include a 5.7-inch QHD display, a 12.3MP rear camera, and special extras like a fingerprint scanner. The Nexus 6P also has the distinction of being the very first all-metal Nexus handset.
Anyone planning on picking this up now that it is back in stock? For those that already own a Nexus 6P, would you still recommend it to others?
