Dear koodo, I've been a customer since the day nexus 4 came out and I love you guys but my phone is on its last legs and I want to replace it with the nexus 5x. Im really hoping you'll start carrying it soon so I can give you my business when I buy it but so far you haven't brought it in yet. I know two other Canadian carriers have it but I want to buy it with you. Please tell me it's coming soon.

Wait until after Christmas before you go to another carrier, there are some new devices coming and with many ppl asking for the newest Nexus devices they may just be one or two of those new offerings.

considering I looked online this morning and it wasn't there yet and now it is... I'm going to say that's pretty good. Thanks! I'll get right on it.

So I checked it out but even with my full tab accumulated it's more expensive to buy it through koodo than to get it online from the play store. How does that work?

The 950/XL is a great option. But it's Windows Phone. The high end specs can't be put to as good of a use as you can with iOS/Android. There are still a bunch of apps not available on the platform and many of the apps that are available are far behind in development/features vs. their counterparts.

Windows Phone has some cool tricks up its sleeve with live tiles on the start screen and lock screen, a good voice assistant Cortana, free offline GPS navigation, good email system, Lumias generally have great cameras, etc. but the ecosystem is still lacking.

I'm hoping Windows Mobile 10 significantly improves the ecosystem to make it a more viable choice for consumers.

The pricing Koodo has listed for the Nexus 5x is outrageous! Considering you can order it unlocked from the Canadian Google Play store for $499 (for same 16 GB model as Koodo is selling) and $559 for the 32 GB model (which Koodo isn't offering) why would you pay Koodo $654 for the 16 GB model of this phone? Koodo is this an error??

Both Telus and Koodo have the Nexus 5X overpriced :(

It's weird since Koodo's pricing for the Nexus 6P is similar to what Google is charging.

Yeah, this doesn't jive with me. The 5X should be just over 500.
