T-Mobile to sell Nexus 5 for $102.99 more than Google Play Store’s price

T-Mobile has an offer for Google Nexus 5 buyers, which will lure an additional, to be precise, $102.99 from them. Are you confused, just follow this article to know more.


We don’t understand, why T-Mobile is selling the device for more than Google’s original price. Starting from November 14, the carrier will sell LG made Google Nexus 5 for $41.99 down payment with 24 monthly EMI of $17 along with the T-Mobile’s Simple Choice plan rates. The total of down payment and the monthly installment cost will be $451.99 precisely. If you are a buyer with one-time payment, you could buy an unlocked Nexus 5 from Google Pay Store for $349 and use it with T-Mobile’s plans.

T-Mobile tries to increase the profit margin of the low-margin device by providing it for such a low monthly payment by thinking that the buyers will not worry about the total cost by multiplying the EMI amounts, which points towards a whopping 33% of interest for 2 years. If you are kind of “okay” with this deal, then you can go ahead to this webpage to subscribe for the notification of Nexus 5’s availability. But, according to their official announcement, the device will be available on November 14 at its online store and on November 20 on offline retail stores.

After Sprint’s announcement of Nexus 5 for $149.99 on contract, T-Mobile is the second carrier in U.S. to announce this device and its Simple Choice plan starts at $50 per month for unlimited voice and text and additional 500MB mobile data. T-Mobile already announced the first ever free international data plans, it expects to bring in more subscribers in future. It already added 1 million customers in Q3 2013 and narrowed the quarterly loss.

Regarding the specifications, the LG Nexus 5 for Google runs Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box and boasts a Qualcomm Snapdragon S800 chipset with 2.20GHz speed alongside a 450MHz Adreno 330 GPU and 2GB of RAM. It has a 5-inch display with 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution with the highest pixel density of 440ppi. Available in Black and White with 16GB and 32GB storage options, Nexus 5 has an 8 megapixel camera plus an 1.3MP front camera.
