Signing up for a £10 PAYG SIM from EE will get you 150 minutes, unlimited texts, and 500MB of data for 30 days, plus bring the price of the 5X down to £149.99, and you’re not tied into a contract.

Usually phones from Carphone Warehouse are unlocked, so if you sign up for the PAYG SIM you should still be able to use the handset with other SIM cards and pay the lower price for the 5X itself.

With HTC reportedly readying two new Google Nexus handsets, codenamed Marlin and Sailfish, the price of last year’s Nexus smartphones is likely to keep falling in the coming weeks.

Google is also preparing to release its new Android Nougat OS, which will likely debut on the new HTC Nexus handsets.

The Nexus 5X is the mid-range counterpart to last year’s Nexus 6P, and features an unskinned version of Android Marshmallow, a solid 5.2-inch display, and great performance.

Get over to Carphone Warehouse and grab this one while you can.
