Today, Amazon has a pretty nice deal on the Google Nexus 5 over on Sprint. We’ve seen a lot of sales for the Sprint Nexus 5 lately. Sprint is really trying to move them along, or in this case Amazon is. And they must be selling pretty well. The Google Nexus 5 was the first phone to ship with Android 4.4 KitKat, it also has a few exclusive features like the new launcher and the new dialer. It’s also on sale from Google Play for $350 or $400 depending on if you want the 16GB or the 32GB model. Of course that’s unlocked. And the Google Play Version does work on Sprint.
Right now Amazon is selling the 16GB version in both black and white (or panda) for $9.99 for new customers and current customers. Which is a bit strange, but welcomed. Usually current customers pay more than new customers to sign a new contract. It all looks and sounds good to me, how about you? The Google Nexus 5 comes with a 5-inch 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.3GHz, 2300mAh battery and 4G LTE! It’s a pretty great phone, sure battery life isn’t the best, but it’s manageable for most people.
The beauty of a Nexus is that you will get updates faster than anyone, and that you’ll get them straight from Google. No waiting for Sprint to release the update to your device, like we used to have to do with the Galaxy Nexus two years ago. It’s definitely a good thing to get the updates from Google. As one of those Sprint Galaxy Nexus owners, I can attest to the fact that the Sprint Galaxy Nexus always got updates pretty late compared to the other Galaxy Nexus devices out there. Usually about 4-5 months later.
