Google Nexus 5 Now Available For As Low As $49 On Contract With Sprint

These days, premier smartphones usually cost a good bit of cash even on contract, but it appears that the Google Nexus 5 can be had for as little as $49 on contract from Sprint. According to a listing on Amazon, prices for the Sprint version of the phone range from $49 to $449.99, and at least one rater said that he got the $49 option.

Deals can certainly be funky on Amazon--for example, that $449.99 price tag is absurd because you can buy a Nexus 5 outright from Google for just $349--so take it all with a grain of salt, but fifty bucks is a great deal for the Nexus 5.
