This is a 2nd look or re-review of the Google Nexus 5X made by LG to see how well it holds up now about 6 months after its release and a more reasonable …



The Nexus 5X is the more compact and lower-price alternative in Google’s existing handset product line. It rests right behind the Huawei-made Nexus 6P, which has got a larger sized 6″ display, to some extent speedier hardware components and a higher, £449 cost.

In comparison, the £339 5X is notably cheaper than the 6P and a little more affordable than Apple’s fresh iPhone SE. However, it’s higher in price than several rival models, such as the £250 OnePlus 2, which on paper match the majority of its technical specs. It’s not fairly the clear-cut bargain the Nexus 5 was.

However, the 5X moves a long way to warrant its higher selling price on account of its wholly unskinned, future-proof version of Google’s best and newest Android Marshmallow operating-system. The fact is, the software system helps to make the 5X one of the best more compact handsets out there.


The Nexus 5X possesses a very similar design to its forerunner the Nexus 5, which isn’t unforeseen considering both were made by LG company.

Some people may feel the Nexus 5X looks a little lackluster, or unimaginative, but I am a big fan of its design. The unique Nexus 5’s soft touch back cover made it one of the most cozy mobile phones I’ve ever used. This remains to be a truth on the Nexus 5X because of a similar, soft-touch back. LG has evidently comprehended what folks preferred about the Nexus 5 and improved it, which is very good news.

Its 5.2-in display implies this isn’t a large phone, either. It is roughly the same measurements and weight as the Samsung Galaxy S6 – it’s simply just a few centimetres taller and wider, and weighs only 136 grams. Very little room is occupied by the bezel around the display, a fact helped by the new finger print scanner located on the back.

LG has made some significant design upgrades that distinguish it from its 2013 forerunner, though. The handset features a Type-C port, instead of the Nexus 5’s older microUSB input. Google says the input will give you increased data transfer rate and charge speeds.

As pointed out just now, LG also has taken advantage of Android 6.0 Marshmallow’s built-in “Nexus Imprint” support and included a finger marks scanner to the rear of the Nexus 5X.

The sensor offers you similar capability to Apple’s Touch ID scanner, in order to set the Nexus 5X to un-lock or confirm a few actions – Android Pay buys, as an example – only when its owner has verified their identity.

The configuration process is a breeze and just requested me to touch a finger on the sensor once or twice.

Once set up, I found the sensor is among the best available on an Android handset. It scan my finger marks in nano-seconds

And during my whole week with the Nexus 5X never ever once didn’t identify me – although being utilized in the heavy rain.


The Nexus 5 and Nexus 6’s screens were both sub-par. The Nexus 5’s display was slightly washed out and somewhat flat to look at. The Nexus 6 took things to the opposite extreme by having a horribly oversaturated display screen that altered colours.

The Nexus 5X’s 5.2in , 424-pixel per inch (ppi) screen is placed in a delighted someplace between both. Colors are healthy and well balanced and won’t experience the same oversaturation found on the Nexus 6.

They’ve also been fairly dazzling and do not seem excessively tedious, as they did on the Nexus 5.

Black levels are also fairly excellent, though they’re not as deep as those observed on first class rivalling mobile phones’ Super AMOLED display screens, just like the Galaxy S6. White levels are fresh and additionally the viewing angle is superbly broad and in my mind surpass those of the rivalling OnePlus 2.

While it isn’t ‘Quad HD’ (Also called 4K HD) similar to the Nexus 6P, icons as well as text on the the 5X’s FHD (424 ppi) display appear well clear. I haven’t got any severe quibbles with the Nexus 5X’s display.
