I wanted buy a new phone and I've searched almost every detail to limit the options. Gorilla glass was the reason I eliminated p9 lite. Nexus 5x is the best at its price tag, but in my country black color is less available->more expensive than white. (ps.finally got Htc m9 for 50Â€ more than nexus 5x)

Good to know you're becoming one of the big family of nexus owners, you won't regret purchasing a great phone!
Yeah, I did forgot to mention that part, thank to Anonymous fellow who pointed that out.
About the call drops, up to this day I haven't had any call drops in my carrier's network. Actually I was in Movistar but they couldn't handle LTE in my phone, so I moved to Cable&Wireless and I'm more than happy with LTE and good coverage.
I almost forgot... Even though your carrier say they support LTE (whichever band they use), double check the bands they use, and confirm if their LTE network support the N5X. As I told before, I was in Movistar before owning the N5X, Movistar's band is 28 (700), once I got the phone, it didn't connect to LTE, so I switched to Cable&Wireless (who offered LTE as well, at the same band 28 (700)), and the phone DID connect to LTE. You can purchase a prepaid sim of each carrier of your country and check which connect to LTE on this phone.

Thank you for your extensive reply. I think i'll go for the nexus! I dont use my phone very often, only for whats'app, calling, some e-mails and sometimes i make sport photos. Maybe if i've a new phone i will also try pokemon-go :P but it won't be like gaming 24/7.
The Huawei has 300mAh battery more than the nexus but i think that won't make a very big difference (3000mAh - 2700mAh). Because a iphone for example has 1500mAh.
The gorilla glass is also a plus.
I didn't notice the wide network bands, thank for this. I actually red that when you're calling the line drops sometimes. But i guess you don't have this problem?

AS1, 14 Jul 2016Hello Legolas,

The Nexus 5x covers more network bands than any other phone I've ever seen or owned, both have almost the same specs, except for the sd-card slot of the P9, if you prefer having expandale storage, then this is your pick.
Another alternative other than the P9 lite & N5X would be the Samsung A5 (2016), it has almost the same features of the other 2 but has Lollipop in it.
I've been using the N5X since March, so far I'm loving the battery life of this device, it usually last more than a day when not in use, and almost half day in use (facebook, whatsapp, snapchat, instagram, some games, web browsing), it charges super fast when connected to a fast charger.
My first tip to you is to know for what are you going to use the phone: eg. Media consumer (youtube, netflix, music, and other streaming service), gamer, photography, office/work, all-around (a little of all).
Once you choose a way of usage, you can then go for the specs (screen, OS, memory, chipset, storage, network compatibility, etc.) this step depends heavily on taste and likings, and last go for the price.
If you need any other advice don't hesitate on contacting me.
Wait for the next Nexus or if you can't wait, get the Moto G4 Plus at a similar price as it's new, too, and runs stock Android as well.
AS1, 14 Jul 2016Hello Legolas, I have also the same question. I did some research to those phones but i fin... moreDo NOT think about Huawei. Choose between Z5 compact and Nexus 5x. I do not own either of them. But I own Nexus 5. I have owned it for past 2 years and actually got bored of using it BUT it never disappointed me, so I never ended up actually changing it. Meanwhile I had chance of using Galaxy s6 and IPhone 6s plus. IPhone was a good phone but too large for me. As far as Galaxy is concerned, it was a huge disappointment. So sold it within 10 days and I was back to my Nexus. It may not offer superb battery or iPhone camera performance, but its guaranteed you would never regret buying a Nexus.

I have also the same question. I did some research to those phones but i find it hard to choose.
I think the P9 Lite:
- Better batery
- Dual Sim
The nexus 5x:
- Google maps etc
- Fast upgrades
- Cost less
Also found the sony xperia z5 compact
- Best camera of those 3 but is pretty old so they won't support this phone very long i guess.
When i read reviews i see that the nexus scores higher than the p9 lite but has batery problems. Do you have some tips? Or a better alternative. I come from iphone so i don't know much about android phones. So if you could give some tips that would be great!

Since this was released in 2015 and a new model is lurking around the corner, and the fact that it costs 300 eur where I live... Should I still buy this one?
I know this is going to get N, but what about the next version that comes in October 2018? In terms of support, specs and everything, is this still worth my 300 euros?
