Pulled a total impulse buy on a white 32gb Nexus 5 as I've always been eyeing this phone. I just ordered a Z1 LTE C6906 in white from Sony (Buy.com had them for sale for $285!! but went back up to over $500 in 24hrs) so I'll decide which one to keep and then sell the other

Buy on!

It's worth paying a bit extra to have the 1 year warranty go through Google instead of LG.

I am seeing them in my area go for 250 to 325 depending on the version on Craigslist in mint condition. Might grab one of these as a backup.

Personally I never keep phones more than a year so this doesn't really persuade my purchases. But thanks for noting that.

It is the same 1 year warranty when from Google or otherwise,it is LG's warranty.You get Google's effort in front which is worth something, but for us in California buying from Google is $444.90 delivered vs this deal a $385 delivered is 15% more than taking this dealer or LG's warranty. Given failure rates are low for N5 I don't see the justification for 15% higher.
