Deal: the original Google Nexus 5 is available for $139.99
Manufactured by LG, the original Nexus 5 was a real humdinger. Given its age, it's not quite up there with the best of them anymore, and Google has since added several newer handsets to its famed line-up. Having said that, it's still a very capable quad-core handset, and for less than $140, you can grab yourself a refurbed Nexus 5 on eBay. 

The OG Nexus 5 still has plenty to offer, and while the specs might not compete with modern-day Android darlings like the Samsung Galaxy S6, it's worth noting that the old timer got the Marshmallow software update way back in October. Along with the Snapdragon 800 chip that keeps the device running, there's a healthy 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of on-board storage. The display isn't to be balked at either -- the 5-inch panel is a full-HD 1080p effort -- and there's a 2,300 mAh battery to keep the lights on. 

If you're into your spec-heavy smartphones from Apple, Samsung and the like, then the original Nexus 5 will probably not suffice. Those nonplussed about high performance could do a lot worse than to snap this device up, though, and even if you are an annual flagship buyer, the Nexus 5 could make a great backup for $139.99. 

The mobilepros1 eBay shop has the handset in either black or white color configurations. Since the white version is, quite literally, a half-baked combination of a white back and black front, though, fans of one-color smartphones will probably want the darker variant. 

You can purchase the Nexus 5 at this great price by hitting up the source link after the jump.
