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.

The 16GB model of the Nexus 5 has dropped to $384.99, while a 32GB model will set you back $409.99.

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