10 Days with the Nexus 5X (pros and cons) from a user who just upgraded from Nexus 4:
+Cool design, light weight
+Handy finger print scanner
+Better battery life than my Nexus 4 (which needed replacement I guess!)
+Good camera for a phone
+Smooth Android as previous Nexus models
+Budget friendly (got 16GB model here in Dubai for approx. $300)
+Loudspeaker position is perfect
+Very good vibration alert
-Thumb ache after two days of use (I guess cause my hands are too small for the larger screen but I'm getting used to it)
-I like the Nexus 4 feel in my hand more
-Position of both volume keys and power/lock in same side makes for less space to rest your thumb will having a call
-Need to buy a USB adapter/cable if I don't want to carry my charger everywhere and to make my power banks compatible!
-One time I felt the touch screen needed too much pressure applied ! (I'm not using any screen protectors yet) Don't know why yet, I hope my hands were dirty or wet that time only
-Too slim for the size, I've ordered some case to add more thickness :D
Remarks: I'm facing some signal loss and till now I didn't see the LTE (4G) sign, will replace my manually cut nano-sim to a new one ASAP
But overall, cool phone which is a logical upgrade from Nexus 4 or 5... which is budget-friendly and carries lots of good stuff for the money. Hope this helps any potential buyer :)

Legolas, 23 Mar 2016Yes, the 5X DOES support OTG natively.I doubt that it support OTG! As mine does not support. Kindly enlighten me if it does support
AnonD-518103, 23 Mar 2016which will be the better choice..... Nexus 5X or Sony Z3+On paper, it seems that the z3+ is a better choice. If you prefer having timely updates and Vanilla Android, then the 5X is for you, If you like power specs and willing to throw high amounts of money through the screen, then the Z3+ is your pick

The Nexus 5x is aswome. It was not so great at first but with each update, the phone just shines and at 200 dollars its by far the best deal. NOW I know the 6p is bigger and better built, but I hate large phones. the 5X is perfect size imo. SO BUY IT you will be so pleased and happy. I will never give this phone up. I will buy the G5 because I feel it will the 5x's big brother or daddy. per say
