Back in October when the Google Nexus 5X originally launched, the entry-level 16GB version handset carried a price of $379. As months passed, Google and third party retailers started offering the mid-range Nexus phone at significantly discounted prices. However, a cent under $270 is the lowest historical price for the Nexus 5X.
The $379 price tag appeared to draw some customers away from the handset, especially since similarly-priced alternatives (Motorola's Moto X Pure Edition) offered tough competition in the sub-$400 segment of the market. At $270, however, the Google Nexus 5X becomes an excellent pick if you're looking for a mid-range smartphone that offers an above-decent overall experience.
Just in case you need a refresher, the Nexus 5X features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chipset with 2GB of RAM, has a 12MP primary camera, a 5.2-inch display running at 1080 by 1920 pixels, a fingerprint reader on the back, and reaps the performance benefits of stock Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
