AT&T’s version of the Nexus 6 comes with the carrier’s logo in back and plenty of extra bloatware (though it can be removed). We prefer a pure Android experience for our Nexus devices, and if you tend to agree with us, you may be better off picking up Google’s new smartphones from T-Mobile instead.
T-Mobile’s Senior Product Manager Des Smith took to Google+ this weekend to confirm that the Nexus 6 will come bloatware-free when you pick one up from the UnCarrier. “We know you guys buy a #Nexus6 to avoid that kind of thing!” he wrote, taking a shot at competing carriers. Smith adds that the device will come with T-Mobile’s MyAccount app pre-installed at Google’s request, but you’ll be able to delete it pretty easily.
The T-Mobile Nexus 6 launched last week after a short delay. You can order the device online with 32GB or 64GB of storage, though carrier stores are only offering the 32GB option for now. T-Mobile is also limited to the Midnight Blue variant, so you’ll have to try somewhere else if you prefer your phones in white.
