Cheapest UK price yet for the LG-made Nexus.

We may be rapidly approaching new Nexus season, but there's still time to pick up a great deal on last year's models — specifically, the LG-made Nexus 5X, which has already been discounted by various U.S. retailers. And now Brits can get in on the action, with Carphone Warehouse selling the 5X for £169 SIM-free.

That gets you a 16GB Nexus 5X in ice blue. Stump up £229 for the 32GB model and you'll have a choice of blue or white backs for the handset. Contract deals are also available, starting at £28 per month with nothing to pay upfront, but with SIM-free pricing this low there's little incentive to get locked into a two-year contract.

The 5X lacks the hardware muscle of its heftier sibling, but with the latest software updates it's still a decent buy, currently occupying the top spot on our list of best cheap Android phones.
