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.
