Sprint decides to cut Nexus 6 pricing and refund the difference to customers who paid more

Nexus 6 Sprint

In a rare move of consumer friendliness, Sprint has decided to cut pricing for the Google Nexus 6 by Motorola. Customers who purchase the device on contract will now only shell out $249.99 instead of $299.99, and the full off-contract price of the phone has dropped down to $648, as well. This means that Sprint customers who purchase the phone from the carrier instead of the Google Play Store will save a whopping one dollar, but more important is the fact that Sprint will no longer be ripping them off by $50, in effect charging customers for a 64GB Nexus 6 and only giving them a 32GB version.

Additionally, Sprint has decided to issue a refund for anyone who bought the device early, between November 14 and November 18. Sprint will proactively send these customers an SMS notifying them of a $50 credit that will appear on their bill.

Right now, Sprint is only selling the 32GB Nexus 6 in midnight blue. Customers who want a 64GB version, or a cloud white version, will have to purchase the phone from the Google Play Store.
