I'm looking to buy a nexus 5 and I was wondering if phones usually drop in price nearing/after the release of new generation (ie nexus 6 in a couple of months)? Worth waiting or should I just buy one now?

They typically do. I remember before the nexus 5 came out you could get a nexus 4 for $100 cheaper. Problem is they sold out within a day. So is it worth waiting 3-6months to save $100, it's up to you. Best time to buy phones would probably be around september when most companies have their flagship phone releases. Iphone, google, oneplus.

The best time to buy any technology is when you need it.

if it's good technology, right when it comes out. i bought my iphone 4 three years ago and only now is it starting to become obsolete. it was probably the best investment ive ever made in terms of technology. that being said im waiting for the iphone 6 because i love ios and ios dev.

Agreed. I had a 4 for two and a half years but had to upgrade in October. I didn't get enough memory(16gb) and it was so full it slowed down too much.

The best time is usually early in the morning when the store opens, that way you can get in and out quickly. Whenever I go in the afternoon to the AT&T store the cheeky kunts are always busy helping other people.

I'd wait for Nexus 6.
I'm due for a new phone, I've been wanting the Nexus 5 so badly, but i think i'm going to wait it out for the Nexus 6, and if Nexus 6 gets bad reviews (highly unlikely) then i'll buy a Nexus 5 at a cheaper price.

August all the new devices come out around the end of the summer, so then the older models go on sale or many are free with upgrades.
