This weekend only, Daily Steals is offering refurbished Nexus 5s, typically $300, for the record-low price of $150.
The LG smartphone runs Android Marshmallow and sports 2 gigs of RAM, 16GB of storage, an 8MP camera, and a Snapdragon 800 chip. These unlocked, refurb Nexus 5 D820 devices don’t appear to have any warranty information, but Daily Steals has a standing policy to accept any returns within a month of purchase.
Although it’s now two years old, the Nexus 5 remains an excellent balance of cost and performance. At this reduced price, the bang-per-buck ratio is staggering. On release, the device was praised for its high-quality 5-inch screen and minimalist appearance. The Nexus 5 originally had a $400 price tag, but was compared favorably to devices costing $650 or more. Google’s no-frills approach to designing the Nexus 5 was thought to be an object lesson by the company that high-quality Android devices could be created without costing a fortune.
The Daily Steals’ offer for this smartphone expires on Monday, so if you’re in the market for an unlocked Android device on a budget, now is your time to act.
What do you think? Going to pick one up? I’m almost tempted to grab one for resale at this price. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
