Bought Nexus 6P for $543 (including state tax - California) and $50 google play credit.
In Eastern Europe (Bulgaria) will be at least $800 I think?
Galaxy S6 price in Bulgaria - 1500lv (approximately $800)
Nexus 5 price in Bulgaria - 700lv (approximately $380)
Nexus 5X price in Bulgaria - 1100lv (approximately $600)
...I'm pretty sure this one is going to fail badly here.
I'm better with my z3 compact. SD801 still does the job done even better than some newer cpu's and 2 gb of ram is enough even for power users like me.
that fingerprint scaner on the back is simply stupid. how am I supposed to unlock the phone laying on my desk ? Do I really have to pick up the phone ?
I'm one of the fools that ordered it in Europe.
I just love the Nexus brand and I killed my Nexus 5 2 months ago.
As for other smartphones, I did a lot of research and either they were even more expensive, or they were filled to the brink with bloatware. (I'm looking at you Samsung)
You have to have deep pockets here if you want a manageable smartphone that you can use with one hand and gets updates straight from Google HQ.
good lord, those prices. :(
guess they got no choice than to go with chinese brands then. (meizu, xiaomi, etc)
For whatever reason it happens this is a very high price for this nexus phone.
It makes it expensive against every other competitor.
Expect very low sales in Europe.
Anonymous, 03 Nov 2015I want to know who at Google HQ thought it would be a good idea to mark up the price of the 5X... moreIt's the taxes in Europe, plus the stronger dollar. Add to that the lack of TTIP (opposed by various nutjobs - yes, I know there are a few sore points, but, imho, not enough to oppose the treaty as a whole) and you get this price.
Can I buy e.g. the 6P in the US and bring it back to Denmark, or will it be locked or not work on Danish networks?
Don't buy current generation of Nexus devices if you live in Europe, plain and simple. Vote with your wallet! The only way we can influence these companies ....
Anonymous, 03 Nov 2015I want to know who at Google HQ thought it would be a good idea to mark up the price of the 5X... moreAgree. With just average build quality (read polycarbonate & sim tray issues) & 2 GB RAM, this is just another midranger but pricing is insane.
