Ale, 16 Oct 2015Have just placed the same pre-order with Carphone warehouse as you, 32gb in Black. See I like ... moreGood luck with that one! I wouldn't buy anything from the carphone warehouse as their staff are rude and make it very hard for you to return any product regardless of whether you are well within your rights to do so!
AnonD-440236, 19 Oct 2015Guys if u are not happy with the specs of 5x for around 36k for 32gig variant, just like me. I... more'Best of all running on top of sense 7'...nexus users do not want sense or touch whizz or any of that bloat ware. First impressions of the new nexus 5 are that it's made even more cheaply than the original... The speaker is supposed to be even worse than the original which was bad. Basically there's no way I'm buying it as the reason I bought the original was it had the best chipset you could get at the time of release. This latest one has a chipset that isn't flagship grade and that 2gb of ram you get isn't the faster type like you get in many flagships today. To be honest I'd be more tempted to go with last year's nexus 6 as it has come down in price drastically and you actually get quality with a premium look. When my original nexus 5 came out the galaxy S flagships were still plastic so you could easily compare them...plastic rubbish is no longer acceptable and you can do better for your money now.. Like a one plus 2 which has a latest version of the snapdragon 810 chipset inside and it doesn't overheat... Too much lol.
Well This is a let down, I have not seen the yet but the specs are pretty mediocre.
A full HD Phone with 2700mAh... Battery will not last a day even if the new Marshmellow Android is efficient in that department.
On paper Xiaomi Mi4 looks better than this phone (without LTE) but with a 13 meg primary 8 meg secondary Full HD 5" screen and 3080mAh Li-Po Battery and Snapdragon 801 with 3 GB RAM and Mi4 was launched 1.5 Years back.
So Google need to stop getting into the shoes of Samsung .. providing mediocre hardware for premium.
Guys if u are not happy with the specs of 5x for around 36k for 32gig variant, just like me. I say that its worth while taking a look at HTC ONE ME it has been launched in july 2015... Now it's price is 33699k in ebay and only 35199 in amazon.... It has an awesome duel tone finish (i.e. Metal n polycarbonate) it comes with 3 gigs of ram 32gigs internal 2Tb external, 20mp rear camera 4up (ultra pixel) front cam, fingerprint reader, 2.2ghz octa core processor, no heating issues , 2850 mah battery, QHD display, 566ppi, promised marshmallow update within a month n best of all running on top of sense 7 UI..... So it is a good choice if 5x is a bit let off... Im certainly going for this one...:P
Betlog, 18 Oct 2015Seriously Google's flagship looked like more off a phone from 2013..2gb RAM? 16gb and 32gb storage??following the footsteps of apple ;)

Got a hands on late last week. Sat all three colors down in front of me and basked in their glory. This is a very nice piece of hardware. I went home and ordered one. Feels very light and almost one hand operable. The UI is fluid and flawless, 6.0 is what I had hoped Lollipop was going to be. I have finally found the successor to my beloved Moto X 13 dev ed. Still rocking my Nexus 10 and hoping to get some marshmallow fluff for it. Cheers.
AnonD-405901, 16 Oct 2015Everyone has personal opinion, my first smartphone was Android loved it. Then switched to iPho... moreI was iPhone hater about 3-4 years ago until tried it and is good phone and very consistent just bored with it at moment. Swap between most platforms iOS/android/blackberry but windows misses out on my music apps and them dots that fly onto screen then off again annoy me,also feels like I am swiping far too much.
I feel its time to bring out something new and ideas will be their on drawing board (like concepts) it is battery that are hindering everything plus foldable screens not ready yet. My dream device still is Nokia E90 style device running android.

This is what I do with all the 100's phones I've had.
Screen test for dead pixels and how it performs sunlight,colour depth i.e. is it good colour or pale and then a sideways test see how much it fades.
Audio through headphones and voice tonal quality through speaker for podcasts playing etc.
Cam quality in auto,does it take a nice clear shot with good contrast. Is video recording stutter free i.e. smooth continuously when played back. My Sony Z5C I sent back showed 4k video stuttering and jerky whilst recording on phone screen but when got home it was ok.Earpiece tonal quality in phone calls plus able to handle nightclub bass sounds when video recording.
Battery test,do 2.5 hrs mp3 playback, 40 mins video recording, 40 photos,10 mins phone calls,10 texts sent/recieved, plus 30 mins twitter 30 mins web.
If it fails on any it goes back.Most fail on audio thru headphones, cam quality,microphones cannot handle nightclub sounds maybe battery (have battery back up thingy).Too big.
So most phones will suite most folk only me being picky in some areas but I like convergence and want it all in one device.
Hope this comes with USB OTG as it will solve my storage problems.

The actual model I want is 64/128 gb Huawei 6p but it is too big. Might try Blackberry Classic I tested Q10 and know the Android apps I use work plus qwerty keyboard back. BB Priv on was but that looks huge too.
Using a Vodafone smart ultra plus/iphone 5 to put me on till Nexus .
Prof. Khan, 16 Oct 2015Is Nexus 5X available in Germany Plz tell me with price of 16GBYou got onto GSMArena via the internet so you have internet access. How can you not know in your own country if a phone is available or not via Google search or basic mobile phone knowledge? Even if you live out of town you are a geek to be on this forum you must know your country phone shops.
Priyank, 15 Oct 2015Compare the Specs with same priced OInePlus Two... a bit disappointing Nexus 5x > OnePlus 2
I have a question: if I buy my Nexus in Asia, will it be OK with the networks (2G/3G/4G), since the models are different. What about the Samsung Galaxy S6?
I have a question: if I buy the nexus in asia, and go back Europe to use it, will it be OK with the network (2G/3G/4G)? Since the Asian model has different bands. And what about the Galaxy S6?
AnonD-8044, 15 Oct 2015Not long now till it's out but has felt like an eternity.

See I like the 2 tone white with black front and almost went for that instead, but I think I read that the white Nexus 5 would discolour over time and that this new one uses the same type of material.
So settled on black in the end. I currently have an iPhone 6S, but I am still within my two week return window with Apple, so hopefully I get the 5X on Monday and if I like it I'll return the iPhone. If I'm not happy with it I take it back to CP warehouse and stay in the IOS zone, there's nothing else in the android space at the moment I am interested in.
