I'm trying to replace my 32gb black Nexus 5 and have been waiting a month for it to come back in stock since a rep told me it will be back in stock soon. I messaged them back a few days ago and they have just told me that they wont be produced anymore so they only offer refurbished ones.

Here is the email:

I've removed my name and the senders name except for the first letter since I'm still trying to get a replacement and don't want anything to go wrong.

So.. If this is true.. for anyone thinking about not getting the Nexus 6 because its too big and getting a Nexus 5 instead.. looks like you have to hunt it down in retail shops since its not going to be produced anymore.

Yeah. UK Playstore is out of stock for all 32gb models. Since the Nexus 6 is not out yet they aren't going to remove it are they? They still have the 16gb to sell.

That's weird. The US play store shows both 16gb and 32gb black versions in stock. Maybe they are just selling off whats left?

Support does not equal produce.

The Nexus 5 stock they are getting in now are from unsold stock from retailers that are being forced to return unsold stock in place for the new Nexus devices. All Best Buy Locations have done this, Sprint is doing this, and T-Mobile is not too far behind either. Google is just reselling the returned stock direct on Google Play to burn away the remaining stock to those desperate enough that would not upgrade to the N6. That is it.


Nexus 5 will get Software Support for another year, but production has halted for some time now. Google is just trying to burn away stock directly (Hell they did this when they offered to swap out broken screened N5's in the US for new ones for free.) Just accept that the N5 is on its way out already.

Why would Google create this page: http://www.google.com/nexus/5/.

They stopped producing the Nexus 7 and there is no product page for that. There is for the Nexus 5 though.

Oh and my best guess is that they are getting rid of stock with KitKat on the Nexus 5s and loading the next batches with 5.0.

First things mentioned on the page "Nexus 9, 6, and Player" Not really advertising the 5 much huh?

Also tablet stock is not remotely the same resale market as phones. Google is selling the returned stock of N5's because they know there will be people out there crying the blues over the N6's size at launch. Its padding, padding to soothe the size whiners and if Google can still profit from it why not dissolve the stock in the best way?

Hmmm you have a point there. Love my n5. Hate this feeling of replacing it with the n6 so soon. But the ff speakers, Wi-Fi calling , more memory to start and bigger screen scream buy me.
