Even though you can’t actually purchase a Nexus 6 yet, the idea of an almost 6″ screen isn’t everyones idea of a great form factor. The Nexus 5 is still a great option for those looking to purchase a phone though, and while Google hasn’t yet dropped the price on the Nexus 5, seemingly intending to keep it round as a second option, Expansys Australia has just dropped their price on all models of the phone.

Expansys are offering the Black, White and Red models of the Nexus 5 for a discounted price, as well as offering free shipping Australia wide. The 16GB model of the Nexus 5 has dropped to $384.99, while a 32GB model will set you back $409.99. Also currently receiving updates to Android 5.0 (Lollipop) – as long as you aren’t using a Telstra SIM card – the phone still has a fairly respectable list of specs on-board :

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

It’s becoming an old phone now but still a good one.. Pity the new 2014 Moto X wasn’t cheaper..
