Nexus 5X on sale for its lowest price ever: $280 on eBay

The Google Nexus 5X is one of the best - if not the best - affordable phone you can buy at the moment, and it's just went on sale for the lowest price we have ever seen for the device: you can now get the 16GB Nexus 5X for just $280, while the 32GB model is on sale for $330 on eBay.

That's a $20 discount on top of the $50 cut that Google itself instituted a few weeks ago.

At that price, the Nexus 5X really is a steal: it features a 5.2" display with a 1080 x 1920-pixel resolution, runs on the Snapdragon 808 system chip and sports a very capable, 12-megapixel camera with a brand new Sony sensor that does an excellent job with both images and video (it lacks proper video stabilization, though).

The best part about owning a Nexus device, however, seems to be the quick access to Android updates: the 5X is one of a very few phones that run Android 6.0 Marshmallow at the moment, and it is first in line for updates in the future. Compare this to the nearly half-a-year wait to get Android updates on even the top-end Android phones like the Galaxy S6 and Note 5.

Price is ridiculous. It's bargain for a phone like this. I had it and loved it. Decent phone.

A phone with the latest updates to Android, with a hexacore 64 bit CPU with 2gb of ram, fastest and latest LTE, same with WiFi and Bluetooth. The cameras are great as well as their low light performance, with its full HD 1080p resolution display. All for only $280. You cannot go wrong with that price. Well worth it.

Indeed ridiculous... It's making me wanna cry cause I can't get my paws on it while sitting here, on this lone duck (also known as Aussie Country which is full of Kangaroos and stuff). Perhaps it meant to steal the spot light of upcoming S7 "Which comes with a TON of bloat as standard"??? Sorry about that, I just can't help myself!

European guy, eh Wiencon... Well, that makes perfect sense cause petrol (aka gasoline) is still a tad over 1 Quid in Brit Country (the last time I checked, of course!)... YOU PAY TAXES THROUGH YOUR BLOODY NOSES! And I feel sorry for you, lad... Truly, I do...

Man, sometimes I just hate Americans... Not because I'm a racist (which I am, a tad bit). But because they're the first in line to get the latest and greatest stuff, and for what? FOR DARN PEANUTS... Let it be cars, motorcycles, electronics or smartphones... Visit Australia and you'll see what I mean...! A Mercedes E Class that goes for less than 50k USD in America, will most likely be selling for well over 100k around here, normally in the realm of 120k... I'M SO CROSS WITH AMERICANS... Ah, the envy, it's killing me... G'Day!

Yeah, I recently bought guitar from US because it was 350 USD plus shipping that cost me almost half of guitar's price but the other option was to buy from UK and guess what price did it have. 550 GBP! This is ridiculous!
