So Google has suddenly launched the Nexus 5 with Android 4.4 KitKat and you want to get your hands on one. Well here are your options for where to but the Nexus 5 and get the best deal. Read our full Nexus 5 review.

Google Play Store

You can, of course, go straight to Google to buy the Nexus 5. It's available SIM-free on the Play Store for £299. That price will bag you the 16 GB model but we think it's worth paying the £40 extra to double it to 32 GB as there's no microSD card slot.

The Nexus 5 is available in black and white and the former is already extremely popular on the Play Store – it's shipping on 8 November and the time of writing.

Carphone Warehouse

The Carphone Warehouse is selling the Nexus 5 slightly cheaper than Google, at £299. The first 1,000 customers to order it on a 4G contract will get a free Nexus 7 worth £139 meaning it's the original model rather than the 2013 edition. Nevertheless, it's a free tablet.

You can get the Nexus 5 for free on a pay month contract starting at £32 per month. Those upgrading can get it for £29 per month.

Unless you're buying from the Play Store, O2 has the exclusive on the 32 GB Nexus 5. It's available on the O2 Refresh tariff ranging between free and £639 with a 4G contract starting at £32 per month.

Moving to a 3G contract brings prices down to £529 and £27 per month respectively.

You can get the Nexus 5 from Three on its One Plan for free if you sign up to the two year £35 per month contract. Ultimate Internet 500 costs £29 per month with an upfront cost of £49 while Ultimate Internet 1000 plan that costs £32 a month with the same upfront fee.

If you fancy Pay As You Go then the Nexus 5 will set you back £399 with Three.
