Our LG Nexus 5X Review

What are the main features?

The Nexus 5X is loaded with features that utilise its unique OS to create a modern smartphone that works with your everyday life. If you’re user of the Google ecosystem, the 5X is perfectly compatible with both your work life and your free time. 

The Nexus 5X has been built with Google in mind. Whilst running on the Android operating system as standard, the Google network has been built into the device in a way that works with all apps and helps you get around your phone faster. Google Search is built into the home screen, meaning you can search the web without having to open a browser. 

As well as this, Google’s ecosystem means that you can pick up where you left off when browsing, no matter what device you’re on. If you want to check out a tab you’ve left open on the desktop version of Chrome but are away from your computer, it’ll be waiting for you on the mobile version via your Nexus. This also works with YouTube browsing, so you’ll never miss a video on the go. 

The Nexus 5X has also been built to be one of the most secure smartphones on the market. The unique locking mechanism on the back of the device responds exclusively to your touch so you won’t be at risk if your phone gets lost or stolen. This fingerprint sensor is also strategically placed to unlock the phone as you pick it up using Nexus Imprint, making the process more natural than other devices. Nexus Imprint will also learn more every time you unlock your phone, making it easier and quicker the next time. 

The new, powerful camera on the Nexus 5X ensures you’ll always have enough light to take the perfect shot. This is possible due to the larger pixels includes in the camera, allowing you to capture HD shots even in the dimmest of conditions. The camera works with the dedicated Google Camera app in order open faster, meaning you won’t miss a shot before it goes. Plus, with the Google Photos app, you’ll be able to view your pictures and share them with other devices. 

Top end, mid-range or budget?

If you’re looking for a smartphone on a strict budget, the Nexus 5X might not be the phone you’re looking for. A number of new and cutting edge features means that it isn’t the cheapest handset available to buy, even when considering Google phones.

If however you’re in the market for a mid-range smartphone, the Nexus 5X should be a model you consider. Whilst not as expensive as other models, it doesn’t fall into the budget range either, making it ideal for those who want a phone that can keep up with the rest but that won’t break the bank. 

What’s it like for games and apps?

The Google Play Store is one of the best app stores available, offering a huge number of Android compatible apps and games that are usable on more than one device. Users can choose from a variety of apps, from simple social media clients such as Facebook and Twitter, to the latest mobile games everyone’s talking about, such as Clash of Clans.

The powerful processor of the 5X also makes it perfect for any type of app you want to run, with users able to play games with intricate 3D graphics without slow down or other issues. The Nexus 5X combines a huge amount of variety with an advanced design to create a great phone for gaming.

Who would like this phone?

Whilst packed with interesting features, the Nexus 5X is not just a phone for smartphone veterans. Due to its Google OS, many users who are familiar with the Google platform from PCs will be instantly at home when using the 5X. This means that if you’ve never owned a smartphone before but are familiar with Google in general, you can jump right in without having to navigate complicated menus.

What do we think?

The Nexus 5X is an advanced and practical smartphone that’s ideal for dedicated Google users. The baked in Google architecture means you’re never more than a click away from your favourite apps and services, such as Google Maps, YouTube and Google Drive.

With a smaller price point than some phones, the 5X is also highly recommended for those who don’t want to spend all their budget on the latest model, but can afford to buy better than the basic option.
