    Nexus 5X is an upgrade to 2013 Nexus 5 which was the first nexus device to be build up by LG. Being slimmer, ergonomic and with a perfect hand grip, it took places in people’s hearts with a great sale. After two years, LG has launched its successor, naming Nexus 5X with some tiny upgrades to the device. Now you got a fingerprint sensor on the back part of the phone, a USB type C connector, improved camera for low light and 64-bit processor.

    Looks and Features:

    Nexus 5X has three color variants – Carbon, Quartz and Ice. Being a light weight device weighing around 136 grams, the phone is curvy from the edges and still comfy with the screen size being increased to 5.2 inches as compared to the Nexus 5’s screen of 4.95 inches. The fingerprint sensor on the back is positioned at very comfortable place making it easy to reach even with normal or small hands. There are two grills on top and bottom of the phone, making people fool just like two grills in Moto G, LG Nexus 5X also carries a single speaker in one grill and rest is just dummy.

    The screen is covered up with Gorilla Glass 3 covers up complete sides of the phone. The camera is slightly extended to the outer side of the back just above the fingerprint sensor. The back material is polycarbonate with a matte finish which attracts a lot of finger prints. The buttons have been switched to just right side only making it easier to handle the phone with just right hand. Guess all the companies nowadays are following the same trend of buttons of right side.

    The lower bottom of the phone is lined up with USB type C port along with a microphone.

    Screen / Display:

    Nexus 5X is also embedded with a IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display of 5.2 inches with a resolution of 1920X1080 with a pixel density of 424. Unlike other IPS LCD displays Nexus 5X displays got much deeper blacks on high contrasts, even though the display is not that great at the maximum brightness level of 455 nits. Display is fairly visible in bright sunlight with good brightness. Overall the display of Nexus 5X is average but improved as compared to Nexus 5 2013.

    Software / OS:

    Nexus 5X runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. Nexus devices are known for their first in line upgrades from Google and will always have an advantage over the software development. Nexus 5X would be getting the software updates on regular basis for at least 3 years from now after its release. Android 6.0 is quite impressive with its memory optimization and embedding of various custom features which you require on a common basis.


    Nexus 5X is rigged with a Snapdragon 808, 2 gigs of RAM and Adreno 418. Nexus 5X boasts quite a great performance on basic levels with the default kernel values and default settings. Comparing with the Xperia Z5 Compact and HTC One A9, Nexus 5X shows a great amount of performing values even on basic levels. Single core performance is kind of good but the multi core is great as compared to its fellow smartphones in the series. Nexus 5X beats any android device of its level in web browsing and gaming is tremendous as it doesn’t lower down the render levels even when you play a game of high resolution.

    Camera Quality:

    LG Nexus 5X has lot of improvements to its Camera as compared to Nexus 5. It features a 12.3 MP camera (Sony IMX377) rigged with a large sensor 1/2.3”. Along with a much wider aperture of f/2.0, it has dual LED flash and laser autofocus. Big aperture and larger sensor enhances the general photo capturing in low light quite better as compared to this segment smartphones. Nexus series is known for its performance, robustness and upgrades not for its camera or design or features so Nexus lovers won’t care if it has a decent camera or not.

    The front camera is 5 MP (from OmniVision) with the same aperture as rear one but with an advantage of HDR+ mode on front cam. Nexus 5X outperforms in dark with lot of detailing and after enabling the HDR+ mode, it gets much richer and better. Even the selfies are decent enough with lots of light and detailing if the HDR+ mode is enabled even if it is a bit slow. It can record 2160p and 1080p videos at 30 fps and 720p videos at 120 fps, missing the 1080p at 60 fps is an advantage. But still the video quality is quite detailing and high, seems a lot of work has been put up by LG to improvise its camera.

    Nexus 5X over Nexus 5 is surely an upgrade but still going over Nexus 5 to 5X for a fingerprint sensor, SD 808 and an improved, we wouldn’t call it an upgrade. But for those who haven’t tasted the last LG Nexus 5, they should definitely go for buying this phone this fall as it is cheap, well build and you are first in line to be upgraded by Google.

    Recently, Google announced Price Cut for Nexus 5X. From the launch price of Rs. 31,900 for 16GB and Rs. 35,900 for 32GB variant, it is now dropped to Rs. 24,573 and Rs. 31,550 for 16GB and 32GB variants.

    Some think that it's time for Google to start making its own smartphone hardware, the closest we have today is the Nexus series.Nexus 5 was reborn as the 5X to give users first-party software experience and Google design ideology at a reasonable price, while the 6P carries on the premium legacy of Moto's Nexus 6.
