It is pretty common knowledge now, that since the Google Nexus 6 was released it has constantly been out of stock. It seems the high price tag did not deter people (enough) to step away from buying one. That said, it seemed to have had a knock-on effect with the LG Google Nexus 5 too. As this has continuously been out of stock for awhile now. To be clear, it has not been out of stock (as in no stock), but instead it has been on backorder for over a month. That said, things can always change and it looks like they have.
Yes, if you cannot wait any longer for the Nexus 6 or simply do not want to pay that much for a device then you should definitely consider last year's Nexus device. The LG Nexus 5 is a great device and far more reasonably priced than its successor. If you are interested in picking it up then it is in stock in both the 16 and 32GB variants. If you want the 16GB one then it is only available in black. No white or red folks and the price (you probably already know) is $349.99. As mentioned the Nexus 5 32GB is also back in stock and like the smaller size-sibling, is only available in black. Again no red and white folks. This one will set you back another $50 on top coming in at $399.99. Which in reality is a bargain. An extra 16GB for $50. How long it will remain in stock is going to be the big question now, so if you do want one, grab one. For $350 you are still looking at a relevant and good device. And remember, it is carrier-free.

It has been awhile since it has been in stock so you might need a reminder on what's on offer. The LG Nexus 5 comes with a 4.9" screen with a 1920 x 1080 resolution. Inside, you are getting 2GB RAM and being powered by a Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor (clocking at 2.3GHz). If you have read this far then you know it comes in either a 16GB or 32GB variant. Cameras, you are looking at an 8MP rear shooter and a 1.3MP front facing camera. Additional features include 2300mAh battery, Bluetooth, WiFi...you know the rest. Oh wait, did I mention it comes running on Lollipop? You already knew that though, didn't you.
