Deal: get a new Google Nexus 5 for just $175 from eBay
If you're on the lookout for an inexpensive Android 6.0 Marshmallow phone, then a new deal on eBay might seem of particular interest to you. Retailer mobilepros1 is currently selling the Google Nexus 5 at just $179. At this price, you can get your hands on a new, unlocked handset that's fully compatible with GSM carriers in the US such as T-Mobile and AT&T.

In more than one way, not all of them price-related, the LG-made Nexus 5 is the best Nexus smartphone that Google has ever launched. In fact, the handset was so good and such aggressively priced that people couldn't have enough of it, an interest that spurred the launch of a follow-up, the new LG Nexus 5X.

Although the Nexus 5X is definitely a better handset overall compared to its predecessor, there's a hefty price difference between the two as well. While the original Nexus 5 can be had for just $179 via this recent deal, the Google Nexus 5X is priced at a much steeper $379.

Having been launched back in late 2013, the original Nexus 5 is now a two-year-old smartphone model, but don't let its age fool you, the phone still packs a decent punch in terms of both hardware and software. If you're in need of a quick refresh, the Nexus 5 comes with a 5-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1080 by 1920 pixels, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset (2.3GHz quad-core CPU - Adreno 330 GPU), 2GB of RAM, 16GB of integrated storage space, an 8MP primary camera, a 1.3MP secondary shooter on the front, as well as a 2300mAh battery. 

On the software side, the Nexus 5 was launched with Android 4.4 KitKat, but has since been updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the latest version of the OS currently available, and one that has yet to land on major phones outside of the Nexus family.
