Nexus 5 Newegg deal

There may be a couple of new Nexus handsets on the market now, but the original Nexus 5 still has its charms. At a discounted price of just $210, it’s a really tough bargain to beat.

Newegg is running a sale this week which sees a 58 percent discount applies to the handset, with the price dropping all the way from $500 to just $210. The model on offer is the unlocked North American LG-D820, which is important if you’re an AT&T or T-Mobile customer, along with 32GB of internal storage space.

Although it may be a couple of year’s old, the Nexus 5’s core hardware still stacks up fairly well with today’s mid/high tier handsets. There’s a 5-inch 1080p display, quad-core Snapdragon 800 SoC, 2GB of RAM, a 2,300mAh battery, and an 8 megapixel rear camera. Not to mention, it’s a cost effective way to receive a fast upgrade to the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS.

The phone is available from Newegg in both black and white color options and the deal will run for the next 5 days, ending on Sunday.
