The Nexus 5 is still a pretty darn desirable phone with all this Android L business going on. You can grab a Nexus 5 on eBay today for a reasonable discount. It's $329.99, but there's no tax and shipping is free.

2014-07-10 14_11_43-New LG Google Nexus 5 16GB Black Factory Unlocked D821 Smart Phone _ eBay

Like most of these deals, the price isn't much lower than the one listed in the Play Store. However, Google charges you tax and shipping, which can easily work out to an extra $30-40. This deal comes with free basic shipping in the US and no tax, unless you're in Missouri. You could save $60-70 total, depending on where you live.

This is a new device – exactly the same thing you'd get from the Play Store (the D821 with international LTE bands), just a little cheaper. You can get it shipped to other countries, but it's probably too pricey to make sense.

    hmm D821 its not the EU LTE band version?

  • Francesco

    It's the international version. LTE is a problem in US networks. Don't save 50$ to end up without LTE...

    This eBay listing shows the 16GB Nexus 5 as having a list price of $600 (thus claiming that $330 is 44% off). Have I missed something here? T-Mobile only wants $400 for it, and it's $350 on the Play Store. I don't think I've ever seen the Nexus 5 listed at $600.

    • clovervidia

      I got my 32GB for $400 and there's nothing above that. Maybe they just did that to make it seem like a greater discount than it really is.

        Yeah, I think you're right. I see a lot of people on eBay selling Nexus 5's for way higher prices than you can buy them for on the Play Store. I wonder if the people selling them a lot of times, just assume that its off contract price is 600 or so.

        • Petr Bělousov

          actually, in part of EU where Google Play doesn't sell devices the 32GB version is sold for up to $650 with tax...

            Oh shit! I'm sorry to hear that :(

    THIS IS NOT THE US VERSION. IT WON'T GET LTE AND WON'T WORK ON SPRINT.

      International - RIGHT THERE IN THE EBAY SELLERS HEADER

      Besides, most people will probably use a Nexus on AT&T or T-Mobile anyway because of GSM being easy to access without a contract.

  • dude

    This device is the LG D821 which is the Global version, it's not the North American version will it will lack some required LTE bands.

  • UniBroW

    International version

  • Tomás De Bona

    Why this looks weird?

  • SupershopperNz

    Nz $599 for a 16 GB version D821 out here in New Zealand straight purchase. Love my ember red model but where is 4.4.4 android update. Rod

  • Hugh Johnson

    16Gb is not enough...

  • Jeffrey Fazal

    That
    is really a great deal with 44% off on actual price. I will definitely grab
    this deal of eBay along with wireless charger to gift it to my friend on her
    upcoming birthday.

    Nexus 5 is the right choice for many young people, not so expensive comparing with other brands, so it attracts big group of people, but they ignore something basic, like battery, some people still need external charger to keep enough power,that’s why some company’s products bacome famous like : WIWOFIT Wireless Charger
