T-Mobile cuts its price on the 16GB Nexus 5

The new deal from T-Mobile requires no down payment, and 24 monthly installments of $16.50. Math might not have been our best subject, but we can tell you that it works out to a price of $396. While that is still $47 more expensive than the price of the 16GB Nexus 5 purchased directly from Google using the Google Play Store, it does allow you to pay for the phone over 2 years instead of paying all at once.
If you're flush with cash, you might want to head over to the Google Play Store where the 16GB Nexus 5 is priced at $349 and the 32GB model is $399.

Who in the world wants to settle for 16gb nexus5 when a 32gb nexus 5 is available. T Mobile, stupid mistake is not offering the 32gb version.

Phonearena, dont forget that in the play store you still have to pay shipping and taxes which brings the 16GB model to $38x depending where you are. So the differance is less then you are making it out to be. Another thing to consider is that you are able to get the phone same day in the T mobile store vs waiting for the device to ship.

Why the hell would someone buy this from T-Mobile for $450 for this when you can buy the $399 32GB version on the google store and buy the $6.99 Tmobile 4G sim card from Straight Talk and use Tmobiles network paying $45 for unlimited everything?

As far as I can tell if you bring your own phone you'll be ineligible for T-Mobile's insurance/JUMP! plans.

Because StraightTalk throttles data after 2.5GB? I have fully unlimited and rather pay the extra $25 for unlimited data. Those who only need 2.5GB should definitely sign up for SS.
