The Nexus 5X is the smaller and more cost effective option in Google’s present cell phone line-up. It is situated at the rear of the Huawei-made Nexus 6P, which carries a larger 6″ display screen, a little better hardware and a increased, £449 price.

In contrast, the £339 Nexus 5X is a lot less costly than the Nexus 6P and slightly more budget friendly than Apple’s new iPhone SE. But, it is more pricey than some rivalling phones, such as the £250 OnePlus 2, which theoretically match most of its specs. It isn’t pretty the simple bargain the Nexus 5 was.

However, the 5X travels quite some distance to rationalise its higher price tag as a result of its thoroughly unskinned, future-proof version of Google’s most recent Android Marshmallow operating-system. The truth is, the software system helps to make the Nexus 5X one of the top small smartphones on the market today.

NEXUS 5X – DESIGN & Functions

The Nexus 5X features a very similar design to its precursor the Nexus 5, which isn’t shocking considering both of those were made by LG enterprise.

A few may sense the Nexus 5X looks a bit tedious, or unimaginative, but I’m a fan of its design. The unique Nexus 5’s soft touch back cover caused it to be one of the most cozy phones I have ever tried. This remains a fact on the Nexus 5X on account of a similar, soft-touch back. LG has undoubtedly taken what buyers loved about the Nexus 5 and fine-tuned it, which is good news.

Its 5.2-” display screen suggests this isn’t an enormous cellphone, either. It is actually roughly the same size and weight as the Samsung Galaxy S6 – it’s just a few centimetres taller and broader, and weighs in at just 136 grams. Almost no room is utilized by the bezel all around the display screen, a fact helped by the fresh fingerprint reader standing on the back.

LG has achieved quite a few significant design upgrades that separate it from its 2013 precursor, though. The cell phone provides a Type-C port, when compared to the Nexus 5’s older microUSB input. Google says the input will offer you much better transfer of data and charge speeds.

As noted right now, LG also has used Android 6.0 Marshmallow’s built-in “Nexus Imprint” support and added a finger print reader to the back of the Nexus 5X.

The sensor has similar functionality to Apple’s Touch ID scanner, enabling you to set the Nexus 5X to un-lock or grant certain activities – Android Pay purchases, for instance – only after its owner has validated their ID.

The configuration process is straightforward and only required me to tap a finger on the sensor a couple of times.

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

And additionally for the period of my entire week with the Nexus 5X never once didn’t recognize me – although used in the downpour.

NEXUS 5X Display Performance

The Nexus 5 and Nexus 6’s screens were both sub-par. The Nexus 5’s display screen was a little washed out and a bit unappealing to look at. The Nexus 6 took things to another extreme by having a horribly oversaturated display screen that deformed colours.

The Nexus 5X’s 5.2″ , 424-pixel per inch (ppi) display rests in a content middle ground between both. Colours are well balanced and do not suffer from the similar oversaturation seen on the Nexus 6.

They’re also reasonably vivid and bright and don’t seem overly lackluster, as they did on the Nexus 5.

Black levels are additionally pretty fine, though they’re not as deep as those viewed on top end rival phones’ Super AMOLED display screens, which include the Samsung Galaxy S6. Whites are fresh and additionally the viewing angle is remarkably broad and in my mind outshine the ones from the rival OnePlus 2.

Although it isn’t ‘Quad HD’ (Or 4K HD) similar to the Nexus 6P, icons & textual content on the the 5X’s 1080P (424 ppi) display screen seem very clear. I haven’t got any critical quibbles with the Nexus 5X’s display screen.
