timmmay: https://www.shipito.com/ can get small things to NZ via air mail for $15 insured. I have this 20,000mah battery pack, cost $30 at regular prices, works well - charges my S4 a bunch of times. Just because something is discounted doesn't mean it's the best option.


That's true. I tend to follow reviews and reviews on the Anker are better. I have 6 other Anker products which work flawlessly, and so I tend to be pretty loyal like that.

zhuyan: Amazon is going to sell today the latest Nexus 6 Unlocked 32GB for US$199; I'm still trying to figure out the corresponding NZ time to grab it.


You mean the Motorola Nexus 6 or the latest latest Huawei Nexus 6P?



The Motorola Nexus 6 it is

Under 12 Days of Deals, Uncoming deals, it shows $199 but the time for sale shows "starts at 9:00pm"

The Product page itself currently still shows $339.95 though; have to eat and see...


Looking at the comments, people may receive the international or the US version by random chance, will do some research first to see if the US version actually works in NZ first. 


Any insight to share? From what I can see, 2 of the 3 LTE bands for Spark at least match.


3G will be fine, 850/900/2100 are all covered.

only the 2800 LTE band is missing if I get the US version. 

Well, I can live with that in central Auckland

Bought the Nexus 6 for $199 USD ($305NZD). Absolutely cannot beat that price-performance ratio.

Couldn't you guys have bought the Nexus 6 before the sale, and then use the 7 day if price is lower refund policy thing Amazon does?

Went to get this and it came up that the cart isnt working and the time it gives that it will be working is when the deal runs out. WTF sort of crap is that?

zhuyan: It's for grab now!!!  The white one 32GB is $199; I just grabbed one! :)


Brought one for me, one for the wife.

Received this today.

"We wanted to let you know that we have shipped your items. We've combined 2 "Motorola Nexus 6 Unlocked..." from your orders together in the same package. "

Gee, thanks Amazon :-(

To think, I didn't get the 64GB one to avoid import duty...

You probably would have got nailed anyway... and paid more for shipping. You needed to have different shipping addresses if you wanted to fly under the radar...

Surely he could have shipped his wife's phone with her name as the receiver? Duty is per-person right?
