Deal alert: the 32GB Google Nexus 5X is priced at $379 on eBay

A few days ago, Google slashed the price of the LG-made Google Nexus 5X by $30 in what appears to be a largely appreciated price correction for the handset. At the moment, the new Google Store price of the 32GB Nexus 5X is one of $399, but it turns out that a seller on eBay is offering the same device for $20 less.

Ebay seller Yapper_wireless is currently selling the 32GB Google Nexus 5X - in either Carbon black or Quartz white - at $379 with free expedited shipping in the US as well as a one-year manufacturer warranty. The seller, which has a 98.4% positive track record, is a top-rated seller on eBay. The product page says that the quantities are limited, meaning that you might want to hurry if this offer tempts you.

Although not perceived to offer as much value for the money as its spiritual predecessor, the original Google Nexus 5, the Nexus 5X is still a pretty decent upper mid-range smartphone, especially at $379 for the 32GB version. Aside from the vanilla version of Android and the promise of timely Android updates, the strong points of the handsets are a versatile 12MP primary camera, a fast battery recharge time, as well as color-accurate 5.2-inch FullHD display. 

On the downside, Google's decision to pair the hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chipset with just 2GB of RAM was largely criticized, especially given that other Snapdragon 808-based smartphones come with 3GB of RAM. For a much more detailed analysis of the smartphone, head on over to our Google Nexus 5X review.



What do you guys think, is the 32GB version of the Google Nexus 5X worth $379?

Not everyone wants a phablet phone even tho the nexus 5x has less RAM than the X pure they share similar performance plus you get updates more quicker with the nexus

I agree with the updates comment and the phablet comment, but I just feel that some of Motorola's custom software is more functional than some stock Android features. For example, I have my work schedule on my Google calendar, and every shift is marked as "Busy", I can setup my old Moto X to silence itself when a calendar event says "Busy". Stock Marshmallow won't do this, it has a similar feature, but I haven't been able to get the phone to silence itself based on calendar events unless they were invites I had received. And after never worrying about silencing my phone at work for two years, it sucks to have to go back to doing it manually.

It's those little details that really makes the Moto X user experience a pleasant one.

I'll take 3GB of RAM, micro SD card, and dual speakers over the half baked 5X.

I'll probably go back to Motorola once Google Fi opens up to non Nexus devices. I really just hope that this year's Moto X is a little more compact than the 2015 model. I love my Nexus 6P, but it would be nice if it were a little smaller.
