The most compelling Android devices released each year often fall under Google’s own Nexus brand. Every Nexus phone is launched running the latest version of Android without custom skins and other blemishes, and the hardware you get is typically just as good as other high-end competitors, albeit at a lower price point. The Nexus 5X is Google’s new mid-range contender, designed alongside the Nexus 6P to be the company’s poster boy for Android 6.0 ‘Marshmallow’. The handset is being manufactured by LG, who has returned to the realm of Nexus devices after developing the much-loved Nexus 5 in 2013. As Google didn’t release a five-inch-class smartphone last year, the 5X is a true successor to the Nexus 5, with many owners of the two-year-old handset eyeing off an upgrade around this time of year. Starting at $379 for the 16 GB model, the Nexus 5X includes a modest yet decent array of hardware. There’s a 5.2-inch 1080p display on the front, powered by a heat- and power-friendly Snapdragon 808 SoC with 2 GB of RAM. Internally you get a 2,700 mAh battery, and on the back is a large-pixel 12.3-megapixel Sony camera sensor. Read the complete review.
