Nexus 5X Unboxing and First Impressions

Late last month, Google introduced two new smartphones, Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P. The Nexus 5X is Google’s return to the budget market, offering a versatile phone that does everything without breaking the bank. It has a stunning 5.2-inch display, a fingerprint scanner like Samsung and Apple, great battery life, dual front-facing speakers, and more for all the same. wallet friendly $379 Price like old Nexus phones. This is our Nexus 5X unboxing and first impressions.

Instead of a very expensive phone like it was in 2014, this year Google has hit both categories. The do-it-all champion is back with the Nexus 5X, and a larger premium Nexus 6P made of aluminum is available for those who want it. Read on for more details on the Nexus 5X.

Google and LG teamed up for two years to present some of the most beloved Nexus smartphones ever, the Nexus 4, and then the Nexus 5 in 2013. Google changed that and went with a very expensive Nexus 6 in 2014, but now Google is back with a phone that everyone can love. The Nexus 5X offers everything anyone needs in a smartphone, but at a price that won’t break your budget.

Since the original Nexus 5 in 2013, users have been asking for a successor. A replacement that isn’t too big or expensive. The Nexus 6 had a massive 5.96-inch display, average specs, and a massive $649 price point that made it inaccessible to most.

On September 29, Google answered that prayer for many Android users or low-budget shoppers with the Nexus 5X. It has the perfect size, great design, a better new camera, good battery life for a change, great sound and more, all for $379. However, there are a few concessions that we’ll cover later in a full review.

We only have one day left to spend with the Nexus 5X, so we can’t share much thought yet, but the hands-on video and unboxing below should share lots of details for those considering one of Google’s newest smartphones.

As you can see from the video above, the Nexus 5X was exactly what millions of Nexus users wanted. It’s not too big, it’s not too small, but it’s still an extremely capable and powerful smartphone. Being called a “flagship phone” is enough, and no one should call it mid-range just because it doesn’t have the latest 8-core processor. Our short time with the Nexus 5X was impressive, especially considering the price.

Those who want a full-featured flagship phone will want to consider the Nexus 6P or Galaxy Note 5, but if you’re looking for a slightly smaller, pocket-friendly, yet still great all-around smartphone on the market, the Nexus 5X could be a great option.

We talked about a lot of things in our hands-on video above, but below are a few additional details about the specs, design, build quality, speakers, and the brand new fancy fingerprint on the Nexus 5X.

As you can see, the Nexus 5X has had its cuts in a few areas, but there’s nothing to stop buyers from giving it some serious thought. It has the same powerful 6-core processor as the LG G4 or Moto X, a better camera than the original Nexus 5, a bigger battery, faster charging and much more. soon. However, after spending two days with it, this is a well-made, fast, fluid and capable smartphone running Google’s latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It is the first smartphone to be released with Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

The Nexus 5X doesn’t have the latest Quad-HD display or stylus, nor does it have a powerful 8-core processor and a micro SD slot. He doesn’t need these things though. Buyers who want a pure Android experience without spending $600-700 on competing phones got exactly what they wanted from the Nexus 5X.

The Nexus 5X’s two downsides are its 2GB of RAM and only 16 or 32GB of internal storage, but it also costs only $379 or $429, making it one of the most capable smartphones under $400. Those who need more storage should consider the Nexus 6P, which comes in 32, 64 or 128GB storage options.

Google has shipped the new Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, but I’ve only had a few short days with each phone, mostly the Nexus 6P, so more details will come soon in a full review.

What I can say though is said in the hands-on video above. The Nexus 5X is an excellent smartphone for the price many want. Phones these days are either too big or too small and not very powerful with a lot of features missing. Google didn’t do this with the Nexus 5X. Yes, they’ve been cut in a few areas, but largely the same outstanding experience as the flagship Nexus 6P, scaled down a bit to keep the price down.

The first thing buyers will notice when they unbox the product is how lightweight it is yet well designed. It’s very similar to the original Nexus 5, but cleverly different. We now have a better phone in every shape, shape or form, but not expensive.

It’s light but doesn’t feel cheap. It has the same soft-touch matte plastic design design as the 2013 Nexus 5 and comes in White, Black or light Blue, similar to what you might find at a Tiffany & Co store. However, it also has the latest and greatest features and features.

Users will enjoy having one of the easiest to use and fastest fingerprint scanners available. This does everything from unlocking the phone to signing into apps, purchasing music on the Google Play Store, or making wireless mobile payments with Android Pay. It has the same 12.3-megapixel camera as the more expensive Nexus 6P, and we’ve been very impressed with it so far, but we didn’t have enough time to test all of its features to say more. Google claims it’s the best camera inside any Nexus smartphone, and so far it’s true. Low-light performance needs to be a strong package, so we’ll test it soon.

One thing we’re not happy with is only one speaker carried over to the other, although it looks like dual front-facing speakers. Not true stereo dual speakers like the Nexus 6P. Between the two is a large 5.2-inch 1080p display that looks great. While it doesn’t have a Quad-HD display like some of its rivals, it’s very clear, bright and looks good. The lower resolution will also keep battery life in check, which is a 2,700mAh battery.

For comparison, the Galaxy S6 has a 2,550 mAh battery. So in theory the Nexus 5X should last much longer, run Android 6.0 with new battery-saving technology, and feature Fast Charge. It goes from 0% to 50% in 25 minutes and fully charges in just over an hour. This is huge as users won’t have to constantly worry about battery life. In 2013 the Nexus 5 was a good phone but had a crappy camera and barely lasted 6 hours. The Nexus 5X, which was here in 2015, has a great camera and can last all day with moderate use and charges extremely fast thanks to the new USB Type-C fast charger in the box.

Without saying too much, the Nexus 5X looks like the best smartphone for $379 without a doubt, as we’ll have to save something for the full review. It offers more of everything in this price range, it doesn’t come as easy as the OnePlus Two, it features the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow and has a fingerprint scanner perfectly placed where the index finger is when users hold the phone. The fingerprint scanner is one of my favorite new features and one that many should be excited about.

But what potential buyers should know is that the Nexus 5X offers a lot for just $379. We recommend most people get the 32GB version for $429, as you’ll need the extra space to conveniently download songs, music, games, and apps from the Google Play Store. It’s worth noting that both the new Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P are unlocked, sold directly from Google, but work on all carriers in the United States. Meaning T-Mobile, Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and smaller regional carriers. Just insert a SIM card and it works universally with anyone.

Again, a full review and tons of hands-on videos, benchmarks, camera samples, battery life tests, and additional details are coming soon. Enjoy the photos below for now and stay tuned for more.
