Google Nexus 5 X Specification & Review
At the Nexus launch last night, Google surprised everyone with the advent of not just one but two Nexus devices this year. Following the trends of the power players of the smartphone world- Apple and Samsung, both of which introduced top of the line hot new smartphones in recent weeks- Google too has come up with its very own version of big smartphone, the Huawei made Nexus 6P and a smaller and cheaper model, the LG Nexus 5X.
The Best Deal
All those of us who absolytely adored the Nexus 5 will see ourselves falling for Nexus 5X as well. It retains all the smartness and solid built of its predecessor the Nexus 5. The latest Google Nexus 5X has a distinct plastic feel and is as light as a feather. But do not let the plastic feel bother you much because even the so called-smart glass and metal phones didn’t deliver. The Nexus 5X not only looks great but also feels great. Unlike its glass and metal competitors, you don’t have to worry about smudging or scuffing it.
The Google Nexus offers top notch performance at an affordable price. It is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 808 processor and comes packed with powerful specifications that take care of all your needs without tacking any frills. The Nexus 5X has a 1080p display and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection and a 12 megapixel camera that can shoot videos up to 4K.The other exciting features of Nexus 5X will be based on Android Marshmallow which will figure in this smartphone.
The most important upgrade to the Nexus 5X is the finger print sensor on the back, whose position has been appreciated by many. Touted as the Nexus Imprint by Google, it is in line with Samsung, Apple and many other smartphone manufacturers that are taking smartphone security to a higher level. It only takes 600 ms for Nexus Imprint to recognize your fingerprint. According to Google, it gets better over time as it learns more about your fingerprints with each use.
The 16 GB Nexus 5X is available for $379 in the US while the 32 GB version is available for $430. Currently it is available in US, Canada, Ireland, UK, Korea and Japan. It will be shipped off to 40 more countries after 19th October.
