Google lets you customize Nexus cases with a picture for $35

It’s finally here. A couple of years ago, Google was rumored to be launching cases for the Nexus 5 which you could customize with your own photos, or with a section of a map of your favorite place. That never panned out for the Nexus 5. But it did for the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P and Nexus 6.

DEAL: Get a 32GB or 64GB Nexus 6 at Amazon for $250 or $300

Amazon is putting on a ridiculous discount for last year’s Nexus 6. The device is $250 for the 32GB version or $300 for the 64GB model. This is roughly $400 less than its original price tag, and low enough below the usual going rate (around $100 more for each model) that we’d consider this a bonafide steal.

Deal: Get the 32GB Nexus 6 for $249.99, 64GB for $299.99 at Amazon

If you aren’t against the idea of going with a year-old smartphone (that can still hold its own and has Marshmallow, to boot) then Amazon has a great deal going. The Nexus 6 (not to be confused with the Huawei-made Nexus 6P) is going for just $249.99 at Amazon. That’ll get you the 32GB model, and adding $50 gets you double that storage.
