Effective monthly cost

The Effective monthly cost helps you to compare the total amount you'll pay for different deals, including those with an upfront cost, cashback, or bill credits, helping you find the best value deal.

The Effective monthly cost is NOT the amount that will be taken from your bank account by direct debit every month (this is the “Monthly cost”).

Included in the Effective monthly cost figure is:

  • The total line rental cost over the life of the contract (Monthly cost multiplied by the length of the contract in months)
  • Any upfront handset cost (if applicable)
  • Any cashback promotions or bill credits that will be received through the duration of the contract (if applicable)

For example. A contract has an upfront handset cost of £50. The contract is 24 months long, and is £25 per month. This means the total line rental is 24 months x £25, which is £600. If there was £100 cashback, this would be taken into account too, by subtracting it from the total line rental cost. £600-£100 = £500. Add in the handset cost £50+£500 =£550 to give the total contract cost of £550. To get the Effective monthly cost, divide this by the contract length: £550/24 months, to give £22.92.

*Networks may increase Monthly price in line with Retail Price Index (RPI).

Overview Image

Nexus 5

The all new Nexus 5 couples a great mobile processor with pure Android software and an elegant design to create one of the most impressive and up to date phones around. The super fast processor and new Android 4.4, KitKat® software mean it runs as smooth as it looks.

Overview Image

The essential tech specs.

The Nexus 5 has a 2,300mAh battery that’s good for up to 300 hours life on standby, or up to 17 hours when you’re making phone calls. It’s powered by a 2.26GHz quad core Snapdragon™ 800 processor and the new Android 4.4, KitKat® operating system. There’s a 5” full HD display that has a super sharp pixel density of 445 pixels per inch, so it’s sharp and large enough for enjoying HD movies. You’ll also get an 8MP camera and 16GB of internal storage.

Overview Image

Capture the moments that matter.

The advanced new lens on the Nexus 5 captures 56% more light, giving brighter night shots and sharper action photos. There’s also optical image stabilisation, so you can stop worrying about shaky hands and blurry pictures – the lens in the phone is always kept steady. With Google+™, Auto-Awesome and your Nexus 5 you can automatically create animations, panoramas, photo collages and more from your photos. Auto-Awesome can also edit together the best parts of your videos into a short, beautiful film. From there it’s easy to change the look and feel of your footage, pick the right music and share with the people who matter.

Overview Image

Slimmer, lighter design.

The Nexus 5 is precision-built from strong, premium materials, and the simple design is super sleek. At only 130g and 8.59 mm thin, it’s the most powerful Nexus phone yet, but still ultra portable and easy to use, no matter how big your hands are. And it comes in both black and white, too.

Overview Image

Speed and power to spare on a stunning 5” display.

The 5” touchscreen gives you more room to do what you want, and better colours too. The 1080p full HD display lets you see every detail in lifelike colour with less glare and a wider viewing angle. With the cutting edge Snapdragon™ 800 processor you’ll race through games, whiz around the web and switch between apps at the flick of a finger.

Overview Image

Powered by Android 4.4, KitKat®.

The new Android 4.4, KitKat® software comes with a host of new features. There’s a smart dialler that automatically suggests the people you’re most likely to call. Don’t see them? Just type or say their name to search your address book and nearby places. There’s also Caller ID - Android will automatically match an incoming phone number to a person or business, even if they’re not in your address book. With wireless printing you can use any printer that supports Google Cloud Print™, or enable your printer by downloading an app from the Google Play™ Store. Android now as emoji icons too, so when you can’t find the right thing to say, don’t write at all. Just send a smiley face, a thumbs up, or any of the hundreds of emoji icons on the Google Keyboard.
