If you have marked November 20th in your calendar as the expected release date of the Nexus 5 on T-Mobile, you might want to make some corrections. The phone actually went on sale online today and will be available in local stores next Wednesday. T-Mobile is offering the Nexus 5 for $449.99 outright. The full retail price may hit your wallet hard, however, there is another option. You can choose the installment plan in which case the phone will cost you $41.99 down plus $17 per month over the period of 24 months.
T-Mobile Nexus 5 on sale for $449
When the excitement at the thought of having the Nexus 5 within the next few days subsides a little, you may notice that the price is different than what Google is asking for the phone. To be more exact, if you opted for Play Store, you would pay $350 or $100 less. Then, is there even a reason to bother with T-Mobile? You may ask. Actually there is.
It all depends on how patient you are, since estimated shipping time listed on Play Store may be four weeks or maybe even more. So if you want the phone bad and you want it now, picking it from a carrier is the only option you have at the moment.
Considering what the Nexus 5 has to offer, many customers certainly will be willing to pay those extra $100 to get their hands on the phone rather sooner than later. Undoubtedly, the highlight of the handset is Android 4.4 KitKat in vanilla flavor. The latest version of the platform is much faster and runs smoother thanks to unnecessary background services having been removed thus reducing the memory consumption of the most used features.
