    So long, Nexus 6. We hardly new you.

    The Motorola-made Google Nexus 6 is now gone from the Google Play Store, and is "no longer available for purchase," at least on the Play Store. This means that Google has stopped ordering new Nexus 6 units to be built and that they probably ran out of stock.

    Although the device has a monstrous size, for many folks, it was/is a remarkable device. It didn't have the adorable name "Shamu" for nothing. Google apparently wants to concentrate on the new Nexus 6P, so the old feller, the Nexus 6 is being put out to pasture.

    If there are any folks who still wants one, there are still a couple of options left at good prices:
    Once these are gone, that will be the remaining stock and the device will be extinct (unless they bring it back in the future).

    LOL. Just recently the lower speaker grill on my Nexus 6 mysteriously disappeared. The top speaker grill is now wobbly. There goes my thinking that I would finally be satisfied with my purchase of the Nexus 6 of which I baby.

    Not to mention that it constantly crashes, and the battery life has significantly dropped, even though I'm on Marshmallow.

    The Dark side is steadily calling me...and it rhymes with Snapple!
