Google Play edition devices are no longer available

Never got around to purchasing a Google Play edition device? Then it is likely safe to say you never will. Slowly but surely, we have seen Google Play edition devices vanish online. A warning was never issued by Google and the company has proceeded to pull the devices from the Play Store. Most recently, the Samsung Galaxy S 4 Google Play edition was removed after months of being out of stock. Then, today, the HTC One (M8) Google Play edition was shown the door. It left the Google Play edition section with nothing to show; therefore, the initiative that pushed a stock Android experience on flagship devices is presumably gone.

Have you ever purchased a Google Play edition device? Let us know in the comments.

    Purchased a LG GPad 8.3 GPE a year ago. Love it because of the fast Google updates! Sorry to see Google quit the line. Definitely would buy another GPE phone or tablet.

    I don’t have a GPE device but my AT&T Galaxy S4 is running a GPE ROM (and it’s fantastic)

    My son has a GPE Moto G.
