Hi guys,

I have a reasonable condition Nexus 5 white in 32GB. It's from Google Play Australia - and had it since December last year.
Well taken care of - no dead pixels / dirt / excellent vibration / no rattly buttons etc. The white phone looks excellent - but the glossy sides are quite soft and even without any drops it can easily cause light scratches and slight marring of the edges. The phone is in excellent nick otherwise. It's always had Nillikin glass protector on since new - so absolutely no scratch on the screen or on the camera lens. This phone is plenty loud - so don't need be worried about a quiet speaker.

Never been dropped or been exposed to water.

4G works excellent with Vodafone and has good reception. Excellent battery life (3G life is really good, 4G life is quite acceptable - no need to charge until night)

I am planning to upgrade so it's up for sale. Oh it's currently wrapped in DBrand red Nexus 5 skin. Looks pretty neat. (No front vinyl, just the sides and the back).

$500 + shipping.

Located in Auckland.

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

The marred sides are from me - I repaired the GPS signal issues (quite common with Nexus 5) - and during that process, I made small marks on the sides. I have since have put on dBrand skin which covers them up very well and virtually no defects are seen. 

Getting Nexus 5 is a little like lucky dip unfortunately. You either get issues with buttons, yellow screen, GPS issues, bad vibrating motor, quiet sound... 

This one is pretty much perfect after the GPS fix. It's one fantastic quick phone - and gets good 4G / 3G reception in NZ.

With 3G reception the phone will last almost 2 days (36-40 hours) with moderate use. With 4G the phone will make through one day with about 20% to spare around 11pm. (no charge during the day, unplugged at 6:40am)

I will through in some cases if you want. Will come fully boxed, original LG quick charger, manual, etc etc.
