Best Nexus 5X deals and tariffs for May 2016

Get a great price for a Nexus 5X

Google brought LG back on board for the Nexus 5X to replicate the success of the Nexus 5 from 2013. The headline is: LG did it. The Nexus 5X is the smaller and cheaper brother of the Nexus 6P and comes with a gorgeous 5.2-inch display.

There's a beefed up processor, a big improvement in the camera and then there's USB-C support to round it all off. The phone only weighs 136 grams and is really easy to hold.

But the best bit is the Android 6 Marshmallow software and the fact you're set to get the latest software updates before any other manufacturer with the Nexus 5X. Or, at least for the next few years anyway.

When looking at the Nexus 5X, bear in mind there are two different storage versions so you need to decide on 16GB or 32GB. Let's take a look at some of the best Nexus 5X deals we have found in the UK.

Further down the page you'll find this months best deals sorted by their networks, and the size of the phone, but these top three are the best overall deals this month.
