The Nexus 5X didn’t quite get the showcase that it deserved on the world market. Although the Nexus 5 was much beloved by hardcore Android fans by putting incredible power in your hands for how much you paid for it, LG’s follow up, the also-affordable 5X, was overshadowed by the premium-design Huawei Nexus 6P, which released around the same time.
This sucked for the 5X, but it rocks for you, because this very well-designed and relatively unappreciated smartphone’s price tag just keeps dropping. Now we’re seeing it for $269.99 on eBay, which is the lowest we’ve ever seen it.
Nexus 5X review
Let’s take a look at what you’re getting when you grab a Nexus 5X. Processor-wise, it’s rocking the Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 which is fueled by 2GB of RAM. 16GB of internal storage isn’t bad, and the 5.2 inch, 1920×1080 LCD display is pretty beautiful. On the back, the device sports a 12.3MP camera, and the selfie-snapper brings 5 megapixels to play with. The battery is 2700mAh, but the relatively underpowered specs means that usually more than enough. Best of all, the Nexus 5X runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow right out of the box, so if you’ve been looking for an affordable way to get into the marshmallowy goodness of Google Now On Tap, here’s your chance.
These are admittedly mid-range specs, but for 270 bucks, you’re getting a lot for what you pay. It looks like these slick little devices are flying off the eBay seller’s shelves like hotcakes, so if you want to jump on this deal, you’ll have to act fast. Click the button below to get a look.
