This weekend only, Daily Steals is offering refurbished Nexus 5s, typically $300, for the record-low price of $150.
The LGsmartphone runs Android Marshmallow and sports 2 gigs of RAM, 16GB of storage, an 8MP camera, and a Snapdragon 800 chip. These unlocked, refurb Nexus 5 D820 devices don’t appear to have any warranty information, but Daily Steals has a standing policy to accept any returns within a month of purchase.
Although it’s now two years old, the Nexus 5 remains an excellent balance of cost and performance. At this reduced price, the bang-per-buck ratio is staggering. On release, the device was praised for its high-quality 5-inch screen and minimalist appearance. The Nexus 5 originally had a $400 price tag, but was compared favorably to devices costing $650 or more. Google’s no-frills approach to designing the Nexus 5 was thought to be an object lesson by the company that high-quality Android devices could be created without costing a fortune.
The Daily Steals’ offer for this smartphone expires on Monday, so if you’re in the market for an unlocked Android device on a budget, now is your time to act.
