Just yesterday we reported about how Best Buy had set the Nexus 5 off-contract price at a whopping $799. We’re not sure who was smoking what when that price was listed, but Best Buy has apparently realized its blunder and placed the off-contract price of the Nexus 5 to $449.99 instead. Their new price-point now mirrors Sprint’s and is much more reasonable.
While it may be more reasonable, I’m still not sure why someone would buy the phone from Best Buy or Sprint when you can just purchase it from Google for $100 less and take the phone anywhere. You could also get it immediately too. Unlike the Nexus 5, Google seems to have made a lot more phones this time around and is still accepting orders for immediate shipping (at least at the time this article was written and published).
It’s a great phone, just not $800 great. I’m currently thinking about getting one and freeing myself of AT&T altogether – not to say AT&T is bad, they’re just a little expensive. Any other Android users may want to consider the Nexus 5 too. It’s a powerful device that’s supported wonderfully and you get to keep it for all eternity!
Who buys a phone from Best Buy anyway?
