Nexus 5 gets price cut in the U.K. to £240 ($399 USD) from Carphone Warehouse
Good news for those of you who live in the U.K. Carphone Warehouse has cut the price of the Nexus 5 from £300 ($499 USD) to £240 ($399 USD). Both the white and red versions of the phone are currently out of stock and have a pre-order button on the retailer's site. The white model is scheduled to start shipping on February 27th. The black variant of the phone can be ordered right this second.

Just to refresh your memory, the Nexus 5 is equipped with a 5 inch screen offering resolution of 1080 x 1920. A quad-core 2.26GHz Snapdragon 800 CPU is under the hood with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage on board. Keep in mind that there is no microSD slot on this model. The 8MP camera on back includes OIS and captures video in 1080 x 1920 at 30fps. A 1.3MP snapper is on front of the phone. The 2300mAh cell keeps the lights on while Android 4.4.2 is pre-installed.

Just to compare, the price of the same phone in the U.S. remains $349 from the Google Play Store.

16gb is no use to anyone I would fill that within a few months.

There was also a price drop in NZ,
Down from NZ$700 (US$580) to NZ$600 (US$500)
Still NZ$180 (US$150) over the US price
Still a lot cheaper than the other flagships though
