If you’ve been wanting that special gift for under the tree this Christmas, how about the Microsoft LG Nexus 5X from Big W?

It’s an obvious data entry mistake, with the picture for the phone and pricing ($649 for the 16GB model and $739 for the 32GB model) matching up with RRP of the LG built Nexus 5X. The description on the site also confirms this is the LG Nexus 5X:

The Ultimate All Rounder. Capturing the soul of the Nexus family, the 5X offers top-line performance in a compact, lightweight device that’s ready to go anywhere, anytime. Beneath the 5.2-inch display is a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor for world-class speed at an affordable price.

Availability wise, it appears that the Nexus 5X is only available online with a few searches on the site showing no stock at stores in cities around Australia.

The prices are pretty much what you’ll find around the place, but if you’re looking for a bargain you can get a 32GB model for $665.10 plus shipping using Big W’s eBay store which comes with a discount using eBay’s 10% off purchases over $100 Christmas discount.

If you want to check out the ‘Microsoft’ Nexus 5X on the Big W main page, you can head over and see it in all its glory.

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.
