first Motorola went retard and now google. What's the point of coming up with two models of a phone if they are both going to be huge. At lest offer one decent sized phone. while 5.2 in. is not huge, those bezels make this a damn big phone.
So funny how people complain about no OIS, OIS is SHIT in mobiles, software Stabilization is much better, sadly though most companies don't do it well.
However Sony on the other hand with the Z5... apparently the most stable video and it has no OIS..
Here is an example. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=to9CcKXLjIw
Why remove wireless charging? So stupid... Guess Samsung is my only choice..
SoWhAt249, 30 Sep 2015There is no version 2.1 or whatever... It's the MSM8994... The same chip found in HTC One M9, ... moreI believe that you are aware that it's a Google phone... It's a nexus... I dont think that Google didn't considered those factors... It was stated in the previous articles that they used v2.1 anyway ... Cmon dude... It's made by Google... And nexus devices are supposed to be the "ideal smartphones"...
It's how Google envisioned how a smartphone should be...
Nexus 5x may be from polycarbonate, but it is NOT unibody for sure: it has the same bad frame as the prior one: a plastic frame with a back cover, which in time may get loose, allowing moist and dust to enter inside.
I love my nexus 5 and I think I don't need to upgrade to any of this year devices
Nexus 2015.Nexus 5X & 6P its a very stylish and beautifully crafted Smartphone along with the added feature of Android M.Nexus camera is better than its predecessor and also Iphone 6 & 6 plus.Great phone by Google.Only single word Wow.
Subhajit007, 29 Sep 2015SD810 v2.1 have you noticed that ?? that means heat is under control... not as out of contr... moreThere is no version 2.1 or whatever... It's the MSM8994... The same chip found in HTC One M9, LG G Flex 2, OnePlus Two, and every other phone that has a Snapdragon 810... They just lower the clock as HTC did so the device does not heat up, but then you get a reduced performance... Add a 2K display and you got the reduced performance + the overheating issue again...
No wonder they name it 5X because it's just "in-between-move" from nexus 5 to nexus whatever the number.
The difference only appears like "S" series of iPhone. The chipset used speaks itself, snapdragon 800 to 80x.
No significant upgrade.
I think this nexus is just refresh series.
Really disappointed at the UK pricing (again UK having to pay more!) And the 2GB ram! Wish it had 3GB. At the 32GB GBP379 price point I'd get the lg g4!
If sony made the nexus 6 and samsung made the nexus 5 it will be amazing device but now very disappointed......
Anonymous, 30 Sep 2015808 is not 64 bityou are screwed then... SD808 is built on 64-bit chip... cant u see those quad A53 chips and dual A57 chips clubbed together to make a hexa-core SOC...
I would say the 6P has some crappy design decisions. Why make it 5.7 inch? Just to be in line with Samsung and Apple? A full-fledged 6 inch would have been great, since buyers are already making the leap upwards from 5.5 inch. Then the battery size seems a step down from Huawei's own Mate 7 from last year, when they managed to fit 4000 mAh. And they could have done it here too, if only they did not shoot for the "slimmest possible phone" trophy. They needed to make that bevel for the camera anyway, why not have it on the same level with the rest of the phone and include a larger battery? I'm still curious if the Snapdragon 810 overheats throttles itself to underperform on this phone as well.
...it seems I'm not going to buy a Nexus this year.
I was really looking forward to getting the Nexus 5X but am disappointed as it is missing some of the key features like OIS and Wireless Charging. Also, the stereo speakers were a let down. & 2Gb RAM??? What's the point of having it with a 64-bit chipset? It is going to be laggy and obsolete in 6 months. I was hoping for at least 3Gb.
Google you've let the flagship killers kill Nexus 5X all over again.
