Google Play will start to accept pre-orders for the Nexus 6 on October 29. There is no seperate Verizon model, it’s only One model. Can I order from Play store on 29th and when it arrives I can switch Nano sim from my Verizon Moto X and it should work?
I plan on getting an Nexus 6. I just haven’t decided whether to get it from Google Play or T-Mobile. Band compatibility plus WiFi calling are pretty much my only reasons for buying from T-Mobile. I just hope that T-Mobile will also offer the 64GB option. This is how every Nexus device should be launched.

Considering its price, specs, and battery life, the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact is the best value for its size. The Z3 Compact is now available pre-order for $529.99 and a ship date of November 3rd. The handset can be used on AT&T and T-Mobile networks (no band 12 LTE). The phone is not a whale, but it is still water resistant. And the battery life is great. It’s not a perfect phone, but it a very nice balance of form, function, and price.
The Nexus 6 will be available for pre-order begin on October 29th, $649 is the retail price for the 32GB, the 64GB one bought unlocked will cost $699.
- AT&T – AT&T today confirmed that it will add the Nexus 6 by Motorola, to its industry-leading device portfolio. Pricing and availability will be announced at a later date. Here’s to hoping the leaked image of AT&T price was right $50 on contact. $50 now PLUS $25 per month for 24 months contract which totals $650. They still get their money! Or wait for NEXT details.
- Verizon – release date in November
- Sprint – Sprint customers can pre-register for more information on Nexus 6 at www.sprint.com/nexus6.
- T-Mobile – The Nexus 6 by Motorola will join T-Mobile’s stellar device lineup on November 12 for $0 down (and $27.08 a month for 24 months on our Equipment Installment Plan). The device is going to support “Wi-Fi Un-leashed” from early 2015. After an OTA software update, it’ll become the first Nexus device to support Wi-Fi calling thanks to capabilities baked in to Android 5.0.
- US Cellular – release date in November
The new Nexus 6 is a full featured, high spec phone, which is in line with other ‘flagship’ phones. And it is pure Android. The price is a little high but I’d still buy it if it wasn’t such a gigantic phone, I just don’t need something that large. Features include stereo front speakers, OIS, Quad HD, Fast Charging, Snapdragon 805, 3GB of Ram and Lollipop, and slightly curved. For those watching at home, that’s the GS5, HTC M8, LG G3, LG G3, Motorola, and Google. Its the key features of each all rolled into one!
The Nexus 6 will probably have same specs than Galaxy Note 4 (Snapdragon 805, 3G memory, Quad HD display). I hope it has a good camera. I hate the one that’s on the N5 right now.
T-Mobile will sell the Sony Xperia Z3 beginning October 29. It’ll be available with $0 down on EIP and 24 monthly payments of $26.25, that’s a full retail price $630. The Xperia Z3 IMO is a better device than the Galaxy S5, it has a better design with great looking hardware.
The Sony Xperia Z3 Compact features include a 20.7 MP camera, 4K video, 2-day battery charge, upcoming Playstation connectivity….and Waterproofing to boot. If the Compact is available on contract like the Z3 and Z3v, it should be even less than $199. Sounds like a good deal. The Xperia Z3 Compact D5803 supports T-Mobile and AT&T LTE connectivity on bands.
The Sony website currently lists a black Xperia Z3 as the “Coming Soon” to T-Mobile option. The Z3’s have terrific cameras, I’m going to wait to see what Google has planned for the Nexus line of phones. If it’s too big a phone then I’m probably going to spring for the Z3.

The T-Mobile Lumia 530 will be available starting October 15 for just $79.20. Really interesting price, though I’m looking forward to the One for WP8. Hopefully T-Mobile gets a new flagship Windows phone.
