To make life easier for Shoppers thinking of where to buy Nexus 5, we decided to gather the intelligence from our Boxers all around the world, and list out all the important facts and numbers for you to make your choice.

Why buy your Nexus 5 through Boxers on ShopandBox?

1)   Availability: Google Nexus 5 is not yet officially released in your country. Shoppers who have been rushing to buy from us have come from Malaysia, Singapore, India, Saudi Arabia, Philippines, and we even had customers from Brazil and New Caledonia!

2)   Warranty & trustworthiness:
Some rogue re-sellers have the Nexus 5 in stock but you must know that the units being sold are grey imports which means you’re not going to get any warranty from LG. Whereas if you get it on from our trustworthy and trained Boxers, you get warranty from LG, and you won’t have to worry about your expensive toy not working.

3)   Price:
Yes, you hear it right: ShopandBox is the cheapest and fastest way for you to get your Nexus 5. We have awesome DHL express shipping rates which means you could be flaunting your new toy before you say ‘I really want a Nexus 5 for X’mas’.

A quick example. In Malaysia, the 16GB Nexus is selling for RM 1,700 to RM 2,000 on the Internet, whereas our Shoppers are able to get it from Japan for JPY 46,313 (RM 1457) or from Australia for AUD 486 (RM 1416).

In Singapore, the phone is going for SGD 630 – SGD 900, whereas our price ranges from SGD 560 to SGD 570

    Hi, just wanted to clarify, what do you mean warranty by LG? Is this LG Malaysia we’re talking about?

      Hi Kevin, warranty is provided by the manufacturer where your phone was bought from. So in order to claim warranty, all that is required is for you to send back the phone to your Boxer and he/she will assist you with claiming warranty directly from the manufacturer. Hope this helps with answering your question!

      Hi there, if you want to use in Singapore or Malaysia, we recommend you getting the Nexus 5 D821 model, which you can get from our boxers in Japan or Australia. 🙂
