Daily Steals, the daily deals website, has somewhat of a reverse bargain for us today. They are selling an unlocked 16GB Nexus 4 for $499, or $150 more than you could pay to purchase the phone through the Google Play Store. The key here is you can’t currently purchase the phone from the Google Play Store due to high demand, so Daily Steals is one of few options for anxious buyers.
Is it worth the extra cash to obtain many an Android fanatic’s dream phone? That’s a question you will have to answer yourself. The site’s FAQ says most products will ship within six days, but exactly how purchased items are shipped is up to the discretion of Daily Steals. This means you likely won’t be getting the thing overnight. And by the time all of that shakes out, there is a decent chance new Nexus 4 units will be available direct from Google.
But if you have reached your last hours of desperation, you can’t say we didn’t let you know where to turn to grab a shiny new Nexus. Just don’t be sad if the thing pops up on Google Play before the one you overpaid for shows up at your doorstep.
