If you’ve been thinking about treating yourself to a new Nexus 6, now is the time. A number of retailers have slashed $150 off the handset’s price tag for a limited time, so it now starts at $499.

Google, Amazon, Best Buy, and Motorola¬†are all offering the Nexus 6 at that price through June 23, and Motorola will even allow you to pay for the device over 12 months if you don’t want to cough up the full $499 upfront.

With a 6-inch display, you have to be a super-sized smartphone lover to want the Nexus 6, but it’s a terrific device if you can adjust to its size. It has a great Quad HD display, dual front-facing speakers, an impressive 13-megapixel camera, and a quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor.

And because it’s a Nexus device, it gets all of Google’s latest software updates as soon as they’re available, so you don’t have to wait months for third-party tweaks and carrier approval.

This is one of the biggest reductions we’ve seen on the Nexus 6 since it made its debut last November, so we would certainly recommend taking advantage of it if you’ve had your eye on this device.
