Because Nexus devices have never offered expandable storage via microSD card, it is difficult to believe that the successors to the Nexus 6P would provide that option to buyers. So there’s no point waiting – the only recourse is to get the 128GB version of the Google flagship.
But it that version costs $650, and with that money one could easily get the cheapest version of the HTC 10 and slot in a microSD card.
The good news is that there are two deals which allow buyers to seize the 128GB Nexus 6P – one via an Amazon Prime Day promotion and the other via Google’s very own Project Fi carrier service.
On Amazon the device costs $479, a good $20 cheaper than its price on Project Fi. The only catch is that for the more affordable deal is that it runs for a shorter period; Google hasn’t provided an expiry for its $150 discount deal on Fi.
But there’s no hassle in getting the price cut from Fi as well. If you purchase the 6P through the Google Play Store for full price, you only need to activate the Fi service and the account with which you purchased the device would get refunded.
There aren’t any extra steps. You can also activate it on Fi to reap the discount and deactivate it immediately after that with no penalty.
