Nexus 5 16GB model is back in stock at the Play Store, estimated 3-4 week shipping

by: Andrew GrushNovember 18, 2013


If you’re still eagerly waiting for your opportunity to pick up the 16GB version of the white or black Nexus 5, you’ll be happy to know that the handset is once again available for ordering — at least for those in the United States.

Currently the shipping dates are estimated for 3-4 weeks for both colors of the 16GB model. The 32GB variant is also still available, with the black model expected to arrive in 2-3 weeks and the white model “shipping by November 26th”.

We have to admit that Google has done a substantially better job with the Nexus 5 launch than it has with past Nexus devices.

Not only does Google seem to have a better grasp over stock supply this time around, most Nexus 5 buyers have also reported that the entire ordering/shipping process went without any major glitches or drama, unlike the Nexus 4. In fact, we’ve even heard several reports that Google has been shipping devices sooner than the estimated dates given to Nexus 5 buyers.

Still haven’t decided whether or not to pick up the Nexus 5? Be sure to check out our review for a better idea of what to expect from the handset.

So how about it, have you picked up the Nexus 5 yet? Did you run into any snags, or was the entire process a pleasant one?

    I got my nexus 5 on the 13th, they told me it would be a few days until the 4G LTE became available on it while they (Sprint) updated the towers in my area. Other than that it has been funtioning perfectly. I’m really impressed with the phone. You can’t beat it for the price!

    I ordered my Nexus 5 32 GB, 2 days after it was announced and it told me it would arrive in 2-3 weeks and my nexus arrived on the 8th. So it arrived a lot sooner than expected. Just like my chromecast. It was a great experienced.
