I'm unsure if I want to sell this yet, or keep as a backup phone (and to play with Oreo, etc lol) but just thought I would see if there's any interest at this stage.  

 

I loved this phone, it's got a great screen, just the right size IMO, camera seemed really good to me, NFC and fingerprint reader was also nice. I also found the microphones on it excellent for "OK google" activation of google assistant - I tended to use it a lot in the car. It's one thing that the G6 I bought to replace it just doesn't seem to match. 

 

It's black, bought from Warehouse stationery in Nov 2016, and I got 3 year extended warranty when I bought it just in case the bootloop hit it. Has been fine, though it did occasionally freeze up and require a reboot (usually when connecting to a crap bluetooth dongle in my car so I suspect might have more to do with that)

 

I also found the battery a bit small for my liking (before it I had a windows phone with huge battery, so that was a bit of a shift) but it does charge super fast so that was nice.

I might be interested if the price is right (Only if it's the 32GB model) Mums still got a Nexus 5, so she's well due for an upgrade!
