Hot deal: Google Nexus 5X priced at just $240 on eBay

Hot deal: Google Nexus 5X priced at just $240 on eBay
For a limited time and while the stock lasts, the Google Nexus 5X can be had for just $240 on eBay. That's the price for an unlocked model in black (mint and white not available) with 16GB of integrated storage, and it also includes free shipping. 

The deal is from eBay's, which is a top-rated eBay seller with 98.3% positive feedback.

Since the Google Nexus 5X was launched back in October 2016, we've seen the handset being offered at notable discounts. However, $240 for the entry-level model is one of the lowest prices that we've ever seen for a brand-new unit. As any Nexus fan can tell you, $240 is a very good price for the Google Nexus 5X, one of the best mid-rangers currently available on the market.

Unfortunately, the Google Nexus 5X model on sale at $240 is only compatible with GSM carriers such as T-Mobile and AT&T, but 4G compatibility is limited to AT&T's network. Another drawback is that the seller doesn't offer a warranty with your device, which means that you should probably invest in a device protection plan if you want to be sure that you won't have to cover any potential hardware repair from your pocket.

If you're tempted by the offer, make sure to head on over to our detailed Google Nexus 5X review for a complete analysis of Google's first mid-range Nexus smartphone. As a quick refresher, the Nexus 5X features a 5.2-inch display running at a resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels, a hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chipset paired with 2GB of RAM, a 12MP primary camera, as well as a fingerprint sensor on the back. On the software side, the Nexus 5X currently runs stock Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and the handset will continue to get timely updates to newer Android versions for the nest 18 months or so.

You can get it for $199 if you buy it and sign up for Project Fi at the same time.

It's a great phone, after the latest updates it's fast and smooth. If you need an android phone that "just works", go get it.

Oh my days, can't believe it, that's a good price, but memory is limited.

Last time i check T-mobile was still using band4 LTE 1700/2100, which the nexus 5x should be compatible. I never heard Google customize phone for carriers so it is very likely that the phone actually works with T-mobile. Just the seller wasn't sure? Can someone confirm?

Great price for Nexus 5x widely ignored, which went on an expensive price, with 16 gigs of ram and without expandable memory. Nothing to do with his older brother, the Nexus 6p yes worth.

No thanks (even for free).

It has 2GB of memory and subpar specs compared to the Moto X. It doesn't even have dual front firing speakers and it's limited to GSM networks. I'm assuming the seller is either selling an international variant or they're just clueless since the US model is universally unlocked. But still, the 5X is a disappointment because it could have been so much more. Spend the extra and get the Moto X or the bigger brother, the 6P. #TerribleDeal

Moto x is 2x more, when they where similarly priced, you could have said that.
