Best Buy taking pre orders for the Sprint Nexus 5, starting at $149.99

Nexus 5

When the Nexus 5 was announced a couple of days ago, it was revealed that Sprint and T-Mobile will be carrying the smartphone as well through a contract. And now local retailer Best Buy has started taking pre orders for the Sprint variant of the smartphone, costing $149.99 after a $50 mail in rebate with a two year contract for both new and upgrading customers. The smartphone costs $449.99 off contract, which is slightly on the higher side compared to the Google Play Store pricing. The smartphone will be available in Best Buy stores from November 8.

Most users prefer buying the Nexus 5 directly from Google as it comes unlocked and allows users to do as they wish with the carrier of their choice. But it’s a pretty decent deal to have a carrier sign up with Google for the launch of the Nexus flagship like T-Mobile did last year with the Nexus 4.

Just as a refresher, the smartphone packs a 5 inch 1080p display, an 8MP camera with OIS, a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 SoC, 2GB of RAM, 16 or 32GB of storage variants, Android 4.4 KitKat and a 2,300 mAh battery. Head over to the links below to get the new Nexus 5 through Sprint. The carrier isn’t offering the 32GB variant as of yet.
