nexus-5 Update: According to the store’s forums, Woot has been shipping customers 16GB refurbished or ‘open box’ versions instead of the 32GB new version advertised in their original listing. If yours hasn’t shipped yet, be sure to check your device as soon as it comes to make sure you have been sent the storage capacity advertised. If you get the incorrect version, get in touch with Woot for a solution. They’re aware of the issue, a Woot staff member posted the following message:

Hey all. Good morning. I know you’re upset and we are as well. We are working hard to figure out what all happened with this.

As soon as we get it all sorted out, I’ll post here and you’ll get an email from CS as well.

I’m so sorry for this and please know that I’m working to keep on top of it.

Online retailer Woot has a one day only offer on the unlocked LG Nexus 5 in new condition with 32GB storage. For those of you who have been looking out for a pure Android smartphone on a budget, today’s offer on 2014’s Nexus may be too good to miss.

The LG Nexus 5 might not be a new phone anymore, but it’s still one of the best cheap ways to get a flavor of pure, stock Android Marshmallow. Typically, on sites like Amazon, you can snag a refurbished Nexus 5 for around $180, or a brand new unused model for $270.

It goes without saying that Woot’s one-day sale is, comparatively, very good value. There’s a limit of 3 devices per customer, and devices ship in 3-5 business days.

As a reminder, the specs are as follows:

  • 4.95-inch full HD (1920×1080) IPS display
  • Quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor
  • 2GB RAM – 32GB storage
  • 8MP rear/main camera w/1080p video
  • 1.3MP front camera
  • Shipped with Android 4.4.2 KitKat, upgradeable to Android 6.0 Marshmallow
  • 2,300mAh battery
  • Wireless charging support (Qi)
  • Measures 5.43 x 2.72 x 0.34 inches
  • Weighs 4.59oz

If you want to pick one up for $150, head on over to Woot. The deal will end by the end of today, or until inventory is sold out, whichever comes first.
