Just when we thought all hope was lost for the Nexus 5 (in terms of the Google Play Store), we spotted it last night as back in stock! The Nexus 5 was reportedly discontinued after it was removed from the Google Play Store a few weeks ago, many saying that with the limited success the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 are having, the entire Nexus line might end up being scraped. The Nexus 5, on the other hand, seems to be back in stock and you can order it from the Google Play Store for its original list price.
You can get the Nexus 5 shipped out in 1 or 2 business days and you’ll have to scrape up $350 for the 16 GB version and $400 for the 32 GB version, which to me seem like reasonable prices at the moment. Still, Google might have done well to discount the phone more, at least to balance out the tables a bit. Nonetheless, we’re glad to see the Nexus 5 is back in stock, although we don’t know how long it will be in the Google Play Store this time.
Even though you can buy a Nexus 5 from other online retailers, getting it from the Google Play Store is the favorite option of many Americans and otherwise. We can’t put our finger on why the company decided to put the phone back in stock, but people seem glad about it anyway. We can assume that the number of Nexus 5 devices is limited, as it’s probably the last batch Google has in stock, so if you’re interested in getting it, you better hurry up a bit. You can only get the black version, though, but that shouldn’t be a problem as it is reportedly the most popular variant out there anyway.
The Nexus 5 is an acclaimed smartphone praised mostly because of its stock Android OS. Since Google has already sent out Android 5.0 Lollipop to the device, you’ll be getting the latest and greatest features if you decided to buy now. You can also flash custom ROMs if you would like more customization on the Nexus 5, so it’s up to you. The Nexus 5 comes with a 4.95 inch True HD IPS+ display with a 1080*1920 resolution, Snapdragon 800 CPU, 2 GB RAM, 8 MP camera with optical image stabilization and LED flash, 1.3 MP front camera. Qi wireless charging and a 2300 mAh battery.
