When I made the decision that I was going to order an Android based phone, I knew right away that I would go with the Nexus 5. As someone who has no intentions of rooting or roming the phone, I wanted the best experience out of the box. I think the stock Android of the Nexus fits the bill. So when I started looking a couple of weeks ago, I was surprised to see the third color option. I was kind of intrigued by the bright red one. If you know me, you would know that loud and flashy are not what I’m about. But for some reason that red one still drew me in. However at the time, while red was shown, it was out of stock and not available to order. At that time, and my usual need to order stuff on impulse, I almost pulled the trigger on a black Nexus 5. Somehow I managed to fight the urge and held off for a week. When I checked the store at the end of last week, the red ones were available to order again (with a 2 – 3 week ship time). Done! Right then and there I ordered me a red, 32GB Nexus 5.
If you’re still reading this, you know I haven’t given a specific reason yet. Well, here it is. The color of the phone does not matter to me at all. In fact I always have my phone in a case anyways. But I thought when the time comes to sell it, maybe, just maybe there might be little more demand for a red one as the market won’t be as saturated as it is with the white and black ones. And maybe it will sell faster or maybe I will get a few more dollars because of it. Who know, but that is the reason.
