The Nexus 5 has returned to the Play Store


The Nexus 5 has returned to the Play Store and both the 16GB and 32GB models are in stock. Production of the Nexus 5 ceased in December and the red and white models were pulled from the Play Store. Google stated that the remaining stock of the black model would be sold through Q1 2015, but wouldn’t be consistently available. The stock has been out for some time now, but it appears to have been replenished, with both storage sizes of the Nexus 5 showing as “In Stock.”

The Nexus 5 is still priced the same way, with a $349 pricetag for the 16GB model and a $399 price for the 32GB model. There’s no telling how long the Nexus 5 will remain in stock, so it’s best to purchase one now if you’re interested. The Nexus 5 is still a great phone, with specs such as a 5-inch 1080p display and 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor. It makes for an excellent backup phone or even a good option for those with a tighter budget.

    Nexus 5 as backup phone? Wow that sounds elitist.

    Backup phones for me are Moto E or Moto G at most.

    I’ve got Nexus 5 for over a year now, and I plan to use it for at least another year or two. All the new smartphones are too big for my taste. Nexus 5 with Lollipop is still very fast and I don’t have any reason to change it for anything else. The same price now can be a kind of turn-off, but I think it’s still pretty competitive.

    At the moment my backup phones are a nexus4, moto g 1st gen, and moto g 2nd gen as I try out ZTE’s grand max+. More than likely go back to my nexus4 just cuz I like it best. And damn you Google for putting the nexus 5′s back after I buy a different phone, lol

      I think the Moto G, is a far nicer device than the nexus4. They are pretty close tbh, but the better battery in the g wins in for me.

      I also like the 4.5″ size for a phone, it just feels nice in the hand. It’s too small as a me I device, but so it the N4, but the g just feels nice to me.

      My son and daughter have the Moto G gen 1, and every time I grab it over my m8, It’s like Buttington old slipper one.

    Nice, lets hope Google issues a lollipop update to fix the known lollipop memory problems, my nexus 5 stutters all the time since upgrade.

      I’ve always used mem management apps, so not noticed the lollipop mem issue

    Oh good… If I broke my Nexus 5 today, I really wouldn’t know what to do… now I know :) the nexus 6 is way too big, and other Android devices are not even in contention.
