Prices For Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, And Chromecast Across The Globe

Last year's lineup aside, a good balance of specs and price has become a hallmark of Google's Nexus line, but this year not everyone around the world will be getting the same bang for their buck.If you live in Europe, you may end up paying over 40% more for a Nexus phone than stateside, and you won't receive Google's $50 Play credit either.

We've gathered the prices from several countries for both Nexus phones, as well as the Chromecast, and arranged the numbers out in the table below for your viewing pleasure.

Hopefully it won't be too much longer, and we'll finally be able to see the results of that Quickoffice purchase.
