T-Mobile Nexus 5 deal is enticing

#

The Nexus range of smartphones especially in the last couple of years has offered Android fans a somewhat cheaper way of owning a handset outright that also brings with it a vanilla experience of the Android operating system. Trouble is not everyone can afford to splash out so much cash in one go, which is why the T-Mobile Nexus 5 deal is so enticing.

There will be many that simply purchase the Nexus 5 straight from the Google Play Store but US carrier T-Mobile has the device available for a nice price that may tempt many customers to the handset.

Customers can pick up the Nexus 5 for no initial outlay and purchase the device via the monthly payment of $16.50 each month over two years. The full retail price of the 16GB version of the handset is $396 which may work out a little more expensive than Google will sell you the device for, but at least you can spread the payments out.

The carrier is also offering customers of other networks a nice little sweetener of up to $650 for families that defect from the likes of AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon. So if you are currently in the market for a new smartphone this Nexus 5 deal may be worth considering.

To recap the Nexus 5 comes with a 4.95-inch Full HD display powered by the quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, which is paired with 2GB of RAM. Camera wise we have an 8-meagpixel rear facing camera with LED flash and OIS, while around the front is a 1.3-megapixel unit.

Of course the handset is currently running on the latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat operating system, which has been experiencing issues for some users.

Will you get the Nexus 5 from T-Mobile?

    Anyone who is considering this need not be scared away by the linked article about Kit-Kat. The article is exclusively dealing with the Nexus 4. I know several people who have a Nexus 5 and no one is having problems since the 4.4.2 update. In fact an awful lot of this hoopla is mass hysteria, most likely whipped up by apple fanboys who can’t stand the thought of a better phone than an iphone at half the price.

    I have a Nexus 4 as week and the ONLY problem I have with it is with battery drain.

    I switched from cricket, bought a nexus 5 from Google and never looked back. I love t mobile and Iove this phone. Coming from a Galaxy s4, this phone is awesome.

    I just got the 5 and I love it!! I see no real issues, battery life is great and this little beast is fast as he’ll. Coming from a sg3 there is no real comparison.

    Just switched from Verizon and got a nexus 5. Wish I waited a month lol! I could’ve had my ETF paid for! 🙁
    Oh yeah, how many negative articles about the nexus 5 are written by people that own the phone? Probably zero!
    And I find it funny all of them say the phone looks cheap and boring, but whenever I show people my phone they say the same exact thing I said when I saw it: “woah”…
    Just go and get one already.

      The screen alone is sharper than anything else available and its noticeable. Nothing cheap about the most important part of any smart phone.

        They mean the design of the phone itself in the reviews Ive read. “Its just a black box” “looks boring and dull” blah blah. I guess they want shiny aluminum bands around it or something? meh.

    I just bought the nexus 5 from Google play and took it to metro pcs (where I already had my service) the phone is awesome, I’ve had no issues with it and it runs on T-Mobile network which is incredibly fast 4G. Ran a speed test on it and clocked in at 66Mb/s down and 20Mb/s up which is almost 3 times faster than my home internet. I highly recommend this phone to everyone.

      I have T-Mobile’s $30 plan and in the city I get speeds about 2-3x what I was getting with Verizon on LTE. Now if only they could get that coverage outside urban areas 😛

    I have I. Issue does not seamlessly let you use WiFi conection to call out and almost impossible to share contacts and I love the phone switched from iPhone

    1. Derek Pixley says:

      Sharing contacts isnt as intuitive as the iPhone, but you can.
      Not sure what “does not seamlessly let you use WiFi conection to call out” means.
