This is a 16GB version of the Nexus 5X.
The LG Nexus 5X is Googles update to the well received and everyone's favourite Nexus 5. It retains some of the aspects of the Nexus 5 like the all plastic build and gets a update across the board with updated Processor, Screen, Camera, Battery life and Speakers.
Design And Build:
The design of the Google Nexus 5X seems to be rather boring and uninspiring on a first look. Phone feels great in hand with its curvy ergonomic design making it a joy to use and the grippy soft touch plastic back makes it even better. Sure it maybe a all Plastic phone in the age of most phones going Metal or Glass and doesn't feel as premium as most flagships in the market right now , but its great device to use and feels great in hand and well put together.
The Camera is one of the biggest updates to the latest series of Nexus series, Google promises one of the best cameras in the market on the Nexus 5X specially touting its low light capabilities with 12.3 MP camera with a large 1.55 um pixel size.
The Display on LG Nexus 5X gets bumped to 5.2 inches from last year’s 5 inch screen. It retains the 1080p IPS LCD display. Display should be crisp and colour reproduction is great always and there is very little if not nothing to complain about the display especially considering the Nexus 5X is the cheaper Nexus this year.
The processor could actually be one of the primary reasons one would like to go for the LG Nexus 5X. Powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor. Same processor powering the flagships like LG G4 at 2k resolution with ease, ensures this device performs seamlessly with only 1080p screen. Furthermore thanks to stock android 6.0 out of the box the phone is speedy and multitasking is a breeze even with just 2GB RAM. Moreover the Adreno 418 GPU ensures that even the most graphic intensive games play on seamlessly and without any lags.
The battery has gotten a bump to 2700 mAh this year, which gives the Nexus 5X a considerable boost compared to Nexus 5. Updated processor and newer screen also helps with better battery life giving the Nexus 5X update the much needed battery life upgrade it needed over its predecessor.
If one were to rate the overall standing of the LG Nexus 5X, it appears to be the best device that Google has along with LG. However in terms of being alongside the best flagship mobiles in the market today it still has to go the distance. The best part of the phone is it runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box and should be one of the smoothest and best performing devices in the market and upgraded specs should make it one of the best overall devices in the market especially if you want Android in purest form.
