Deal: original Nexus 5 for $140

Google Nexus 5 black aa 13

With the Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, and Nexus 6P all proceeding it, there’s no denying that the Nexus 5 is, well, getting up there in years. Don’t let this fool you though, despite its age, the Nexus 5 is still an exceptional device, particularly for those that are just looking for up-to-date software and a no frills experience.

With this age also comes plenty of discounts, with the phone going as low as $129.99 back in November. While that price was pretty temporary, Ebay seller mobilepros1 comes pretty close, selling the handset (refurbished) in your choice of black or white for $139.99 with free shipping in the US. The phone can also be sold in “many other countries”, though you’ll obviously have to pay extra for the shipping costs.

So what kind of specs we talking about with the Nexus 5? The Nexus 5 is powered by a Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB RAM and 32GB storage. Other specs include a 5-inch 1080p screen, an 8 MP rear camera, a 1.3 MP front-facing shooter, a 2300 mAh battery, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow (via OTA upgrades). While that’s certainly not bleeding age, the Nexus 5 is still more than capable of keeping up with other phones around that price point and even performs better than devices like the Moto G 3rd gen, which cost around $40 more.

For those with modest needs, or if you are just looking for a backup phone, we still highly recommend the Nexus 5. Keep in mind this is the US model, designed for proper use with Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile, though it should also work in many international markets. What do you think, is the Nexus 5 worth picking up at this price? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
