Original post: Here we go, folks. Black Friday is finally here, and if you had the patience to stay up late, Amazon is rewarding you with some sweet deals on smartphones and more.
The hottest deal of the day that just went live on Amazon is for the Google Nexus 6. Last year’s Nexus smartphone is still a great option for anyone looking to stay up to date with the Android ecosystem. Featuring an expansive Quad HD AMOLED screen, a powerful processor, and premium build quality, the Nexus 6 is a great device, especially now that you can get it for a fraction of the price of its successor, the Nexus 6P.
Note: it appears that the 32GB model of the Nexus 6 is no longer available in stock.
Amazon is discounting all versions of the Nexus 6 by a healthy margin. Here’s the breakdown:
- Motorola Nexus 6, 32GB, Midnight Blue (U.S. Warranty) for $199.99 (down from $350)
- Motorola Nexus 6, 32GB, Cloud White (U.S. Warranty) for $199.99 (down from $350)
- Motorola Nexus 6, 64GB, Midnight Blue (U.S. Warranty) for $259.99 (down from $400)
- Motorola Nexus 6, 64GB, Cloud White (U.S. Warranty) for $259.99 (down from $400)
Update: The Nexus 5X is also discounted by $80 on Amazon today.
These are both “deals of the day,” but with so many people out prowling for a bargain, there’s no telling for how long stocks will last. Better hurry.
In other deals, Amazon is also discounting the well reviewed UE BOOM Wireless Bluetooth Speaker in all colors down to $99.99. This 360 degree wireless speaker has a great 4.6 stars score across thousands of reviews. It features a solid build and water and stain resistance, and drops a rich bass and a high volume.

You get an Intel i3 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of SSD storage space, and Intel HD Graphics 4400, with a battery life of 8.5 hours. That may not sound like much, but Google’s Chrome OS runs smoothly on this hardware, making it perfect as a second laptop.
