The Google Nexus 5 Specs & Price in Bangladesh

The Nexus 5 is one of the most advanced android device. It is made by LG but branded by Google. One thing you must know that Google always releases its newer version of the android OS in its nexus devices. The Nexus 5 is the first device to use the latest android OS Kitkat. The new Nexus 5 is now available in Bangladesh but not through any official channel. The price is much higher due to this but no official warranty applicable for the devices you bought here. Even in India you can buy Nexus 5 officially. But, you know there is no way you can buy anything from the international market as  Bangladesh is yet to allow international transaction for its citizen. So, go to the sellers  who brought these through luggage evading taxes and sell them almost twice the price of the real price. That is how you make Bangladesh digital...!
