LG and Google spruce up the beloved Nexus 5Key features:
- 5.2-inch, 1080p display
- 12-megapixel camera
- 16GB/32GB storage
- Android 6.0 Marshmallow
We loved the original Nexus 5, but after the lack of an update last year we thought it was gone forever. Thankfully, it's back and better than ever. Teaming up once again with LG, Google has kitted the Nexus 5X
out with a sharp, yet fairly compact, 5.2-inch FHD display, impressive 12MP camera and a clean build of Android Marshmallow.
Plastic is the material of choice, rather than the metal of the Nexus 6P, but it feels rigid and durable. It's also small enough to be used in one hand, something we don't say very often. MicroUSB has also been ditched in favour of the reversible USB-C, which is great for the future, but not so much for that drawer of now useless cables.
The 12MP sensor captures nice photos in varying conditions, while the 2,700mAh cell should get you through the day. Performance is mostly impressive, though the odd stutter isn't completely out of the question. Buy Now at Amazon.com from $240
At time of review the Nexus 5X was available for £339.
