Google Nexus 5X Discounted to $349 on Google Store
Just a day after Amazon started selling the 32GB Motorola-made Nexus 6 for an insanely cheap price of $249.99, Google has slashed the price of its newest Nexus hardware on the block. Manufactured by LG, the Nexus 5X is now available with a discount of $30 from the Google Store, at least in the US for now.
The base model of LG Nexus 5X with 16GB storage has been slashed to $349 from its regular price of $379, while the 32GB model is discounted to $399, down from its original $429-dollar price.
Unlike the deals that are usually available during Black Friday, Cyber Monday or the holiday season, the recent price cut on the Google Nexus 5X appears to be permanent. And if it does, expect other retailers like Amazon and BestBuy to follow the suit as well.
Meanwhile, there is no discount available on the more powerful, Huawei-made Nexus 6P. Launched back in September last year, the metal-clad smartphone still costs $499 for the base model, just like in the first day of availability.
The Nexus 5X has, however, also got a perfectly respectable feature set that includes a 5.2-inch full HD screen, a Snapdragon 808 chipset, 2GB of RAM, 12.3MP main camera with dual-LED flash, and 5MP selfie shooter.
Running on stock Android Marshmallow, 5X also features a fast and accurate fingerprint scanner, and 3220mAh battery with Turbo Charging.
