Battery Life

The Nexus 5X comes with a non-removable 10.4 Wh (2,700 mAh at 3.85 V) battery, which is slightly below average for a phone of this size. The power requirements of a 1080p display and the Snapdragon 808 SoC should be friendly to the handset’s battery, though the somewhat small 2,700 mAh unit didn't deliver stellar battery life.

The Nexus 5X also supports fast charging, which allows you to charge the smartphone very quickly. For some reason, not every flagship includes fast charging, so I’m glad Google and LG have understood its importance to a good battery experience.
