Today's post from yours truly is not
about the Nexus 6P, despite the fact that I got to play with Howard's loaner from Huawei over lunch yesterday. Today's post is about some other
phones that were on the table.
It was around this time last year that Google announced the Moto-made Nexus 6
, a gargantuan phone with a gargantuan price tag—well past the $500 I've traditionally budgeted for my annual purchase of an unlocked phone. This year a 128GB 6P is again right up there at $849 CAD
, which begs the question: What can $500 get you nowadays?
