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.

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.
Ale, 16 Oct 2015Have just placed the same pre-order with Carphone warehouse as you, 32gb in Black. See I like ... moreSame here really not much left on the horizon to try. 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?

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.

I went for black 32gb at Carphone(30 GBP cheaper than Playstore) but would have gone white if it had white front to match. Be cool if had RAM slots for upgrade like computer and sd card come to think of it.

The main thing missing & a mistake not adding is OIS on the camera & expecially for the video recording, from samples I have seen the video is much shakier than the nexus 5 with OIS. Such a shame, I have still ordered it though for better low light camera & better battery life.
