If you’re in the market for a new phone, and you’re looking for an absolutely pure Android experience, you just got lucky. As part of a daily deal, 16GB Nexus 5Xs are going on sale at Ebay for $312. That’s almost $40 off the normal price, which makes this a pretty solid deal.

The Nexus 5X isn’t quite a flagship-tier device, but nevertheless, you get a lot of bang for your buck with this smartphone. Although it’s priced as a mid-ranger, it runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow right out of the box and has a very impressive camera. The 5X is somewhat of a reimagining of the Nexus 5, which some regard as the best phone of the Nexus line for its time to date.

REVIEWS OF THE NEXUS 5X

Spec-wise, we’re looking at a 5.2-inch LCD display with Gorilla Glass 3. The processor is a 2.0GHz hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 MSM8992 riding on top of 2GB of RAM. The device comes in 16GB and 32GB variations, but the one on sale right now is the smaller 16GB version. The battery is so-so with 2700mAh, but the rear-mounted fingerprint scanner is top-notch and highly responsive. The 12.3MP main camera is phenomenal with its laser-assisted auto-focus and high quality low light capabilities.

The casing is plastic, so if you’re coming from a device made from metal and glass, you might note that the 5X doesn’t have quite the “premium” feel that you’re used to. Nevertheless, its construction and design are very solid, and even if it’s a little light in your hand, it by no means feels cheap. Plus, that pure, vanilla Android means that you’ll be getting absolutely zero bloatware. You’d really be hard pressed to get this much cool tech crammed into a handset for a lower price.

    The Honor 5X is still more than $100 less than this.

    • coltieboy

      Yeah, but the Honor 5X has the 615 which is a terrible flop of a chip. I’ll never buy a phone with a 615 again. Also, we’re talking about Huawei, so you’d be lucky to get 1 software update as opposed to continued support for 3 years minimum with a Nexus.

      So is the Mi4c which is better than both.

      • coltieboy

        All Xiaomi phones are a bargain, too bad they don’t have the proper bands to support North American 4g network speeds… I still don’t see why they don’t just throw a few more bands in their phones.

        • Karly Johnston

          Because they have to pay licenses then the phones aren’t so cheap. I have the Mi4c on Tmob H+ and it really isn’t much different than the alternative band 4 LTE, slight latency is all.

    If they cut the price in half. I MIGHT consider it. Even then I have to think really hard before I buy it. In my view N5x worth about $99.
