Nexus devices on sale: Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P  |  The Ausdroid Shop has all your Nexus accessories here.

The Galaxy 5 is available from today onwards on Telstra Prepaid and will set you back a measly $199 dollars, which is a pretty fair price. Telstra was aiming to launch the Samsung Galaxy 5 as the cheapest Android smartphone in Oz, but with Boost Mobile already taking that crown, Telstra are going to have to work on another slogan for it.

The Galaxy 5 has about the same specs as the Huawei U8300 but sports a different formfactor for those who prefer a full touchscreen experience. Full specs after the break :)
