I bought IPhone 6s last year after it was released. Before that I used Nexus 4 for more than two years. I didn't wanted to buy iPhone but my Nexus 4 was broken so I had to. I just gave a try to iPhone so that I could evaluate it as I used to hear a lot about iPhone being called best phone. After my use of iPhone 6s for 8 months, I just got fed up with that because I realized and experienced myself that it's just a hype. You pay a lot and get nothing but an apple which already has a bite ;-). So I sold that iPhone 6s and bought Google Nexus 5X two months ago. According to my experience Google's Nexus phones are best and no one would regret buying it as I did that of iPhone 6s. Google Nexus phones are best smartphones.
At the last update some users noticed a performance hit that google has promised to fix at the next update. Has this been fixed?
Anonymous, 16 Jul 2016Which fast charger you use ? Hi Anonymous,
I use the original charger that came in the box to charge it in the office and my home, and for my car I purchased the Aukey CC-T6 36W 2 Port USB Car Charger, it supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0, you can look it up on Amazon it cost me $9.90, also you need to buy a Type-A to Type-C cable, so I purchased an Anker PowerLine USB-C to USB 2.0 also on Amazon ($8.99).
With this car charger you can charge 2 phones at the same time, but when you do that, you won't get fast charging, when there is only 1 phone charging, then you'll get fast charging. Either way, it's great to charge two devices at once.

Many thanks, you've given great tips and good information. I'm about to buy the nexus! But first many thanks :D
Thanks for suggestions . But heard that moto g4 plus has heating issues and nexus 5x has better camera.
Also my usage is lite to moderate and special for camera purpose.
And my budget is around 15000 so I think that the new nexus 2016 will not fit in it.
Any other suggestions are welcome.

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?

These configuration makes any trouble?

Does effect any picture quality?

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.
