If the Nexus 5X is your latest craving, it’s time to act. The LG-built phone is now for sale on the Google Store, with a promised shipping time of three days.

You can get the Nexus 5X in one of three colors: carbon, quartz, or ice (essentially black, white, or pale blue). 

The price is $379 for 16GB of storage and $429 for 32GB. You can add on Nexus Protect for an additional $69. 

The Nexus 6P, however, is nearly sold out. Only the 32GB, aluminum model is available, with an expected ship time of three to four weeks.

Why this matters: As the flagship devices for Marshmallow, Google has a lot riding on the Nexus 5X and 6P. Our hands-on with Google’s newest phones left us with a good impression. The Nexus 5X is especially a great value at the price. It also offers the fastest way to get your hands on a new phone that runs Marshmallow out of the box.
