mid-range smartphone of the year 2015 - lg nexus 5x

If you’re in the market for a new smartphone, and you want a pure Android experience on Marshmallow without breaking the bank, then we’ve got some seriously good news for you. Google just slashed the price of the 16GB Nexus 5X to $299.00 and $349.00 for the 32GB version.

This is an interesting development, because just two weeks ago, Google trimmed $30 off the mid-range Nexus device to bring its price down to $350. Now we’re seeing an even bigger chunk lopped off. For a device running a Snapdragon 808 with 2GB of RAM and a 5.2 inch display, you’re getting a lot of tech-per-dollar here. For its default price, the Nexus 5X is now going for less than it did even on Black Friday.

Technically, there’s still a way to get the smartphone for even cheaper. Right now, BuyDig is running a limited-quantity offer that puts a 16GB version of this device in your hands for $299.99, but they’ll also send you a $20 pre-paid Visa card to boot. When the Nexus 5X originally launched, we were impressed with its specs, but thought the price was perhaps a bit much when compared with competitors like the OnePlus 2 and Moto X Pure. Now it looks like the device is finally dropping to a price range where it’s truly a tempting choice.
