The Nexus 5X produced by LG is a long overdue sequel to the popular Nexus 5 and remains the cheapest option for Stock Android fans. Pricing & Availability: …


Discover The NEXUS 5X?

The Nexus 5X is the scaled-down and more economical alternative in Google’s present smart phone line-up. It sits right behind the Huawei-manufactured Nexus 6P, which includes a larger sized 6in. screen, to some degree swifter components and a higher, £449 selling price.

In contrast, the £339 Nexus 5X is appreciably cheaper than the Nexus 6P and a little more affordable than Apple’s fresh iPhone SE. Nevertheless, it is more pricey than several rival mobile phones, similar to the £250 OnePlus 2, which theoretically is equal to many of its specs. It isn’t fairly the clear-cut bargain the Nexus 5 was.

Still the 5X goes a considerable way to justify its higher price tag as a result of its entirely unskinned, future-proof version of Google’s latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating-system. Actually, the software helps make the Nexus 5X one of the top smaller smartphones available on the market.


The Nexus 5X comes with a very similar design to its predecessor the Nexus 5, which is not amazing considering both of those were manufactured by LG company.

Some may sense the Nexus 5X appears to be some unappealing, or unimaginative, but I am a big fan of its design. The innovative Nexus 5’s soft touch back cover caused it to be one of the most cozy devices that I have ever used. This remains to be true on the Nexus 5X on account of a very similar, soft-touch back. LG has clearly understood what folks preferred about the Nexus 5 and enhanced it, which is wonderful.

Its 5.2-inch screen indicates this is not a giant cellular telephone, either. It is actually around the equivalent measurements and weight as the Samsung Galaxy S6 – it is simply a few centimeters taller and broader, and weighs about just 136 g. Hardly any room is used by the bezel all around the screen, a fact helped by the new fingerprint scanner standing on the rear.

LG has made multiple significant design improvements that separate it from its retired predecessor, though. The mobile phone provides a USB Type-C port, rather than the Nexus 5’s old microUSB input. Google says the input will deliver enhanced data transfer rate and charge speeds.

As spotted right now, LG in addition has taken advantage of Android 6.0 Marshmallow’s built-in “Nexus Imprint” support and added a finger print scanner to the rear of the Nexus 5X.

The reader provides comparable capability to Apple’s Touch ID scanner, meaning you can set the Nexus 5X to unlock or confirm certain actions – Android Pay purchases, as an example – only after its owner has proven their ID.

The setup process is easy and merely required me to tap a finger on the reader a couple of times.

Once set up, I discovered the reader is among the list of best available on an Android Operating-system smart phone. It analyze my finger print in nano-seconds

And for the period of my entire week with the Nexus 5X never once didn’t identify me – even though used in the heavy rain.


The Nexus 5 and Nexus 6’s displays were both low level. The Nexus 5’s screen was to some degree pale and some dreary to see. The Nexus 6 took things to the opposite extreme by using a horribly oversaturated display which deformed colors.

The Nexus 5X’s 5.2inch , 424-pixel per inch (ppi) display screen sits in a pleased middle ground between both. Colours are well-balanced and don’t put up with the similar oversaturation observed on the Nexus 6.

Also they are reasonably lively and do not appear far too colorless, as they did on the Nexus 5.

Black levels are additionally relatively nice, even if they aren’t as deep as those observed on top notch competitive devices’ Super AMOLED display screens, such as the Galaxy S6. Whites are clean and also the viewing angle is extremely vast and I believe defeat those of the competitive OnePlus 2.

Even as it is not ‘Quad HD’ (Or 4K HD) just like Nexus 6P, icons & text on the the 5X’s FHD (424 ppi) screen seem nicely sharp. I don’t have any critical quibbles with the Nexus 5X’s screen.
