Google unveiled the long-rumored Google Nexus 5 with a price tag of $349 for the 16GB model. However, if you’re planning to get the handset from Best Buy, you will definitely prefer to wait for 3-4 weeks as the retailer is offering the Sprint Google Nexus 5 for a whopping $799.99 off-contract, and that’s for the 16GB model.
Yes, it’s not a mistake, Best Buy is offering Google Nexus 5 16GB Sprint version for $149.99 with a two-year agreement or $799.99 outright, more than double the price offered on the Google Play Store and even $350 higher than the official Sprint listing. The handset is even listed at 449.99 on the Sprint website, so paying $799.99 on Best Buy is completely insane.
Best Buy normally charge high for a replacement phone, but a price that high is simply not reasonable. There’s a possibility that it could be an error of some sort, but it’s unlikely. We’ll find out soon enough if it’s an error or whether the retailer is really offering the handset for that amount.
The handset features a 4.95-inch display with 1080p resolution, 2GB RAM and it’s powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 800 chipset with a clock speed of 2.2GHz with Adreno 330 GPU. Other specifications include 16/32GB storage, 8MP camera with OIS, 2,300 mAh battery and runs Android 4.4 KitKat on top of it.
