Google Nexus has always aimed to show the best in Android. To meet the growing competition Google has decided to come up with Nexus 5X. It is all metal phone with huge screen and finger print recognition. In this article let’s find out if it can create the same stir that was created by its predecessors.
Look

Measuring 5.2 in breadth it is a very big phone. You will find the power button on the right edge and below it you will find the volume button. It comes with a single Nano- SIM tray. The 3.5 mm socket is placed on the bottom. It comes with USB Type –C port. This makes it difficult for you as this means you cannot use any charger. You will have to go for Type- A or Type-C cable. You cannot remove the rear of the phone which means even the battery is non-removable. It is made of plastic and has a soft matte finish.
Software

Loaded with 6.0 Android Marshmallow it looks very similar to Lollipop but on further using you will find it is different. The “OK Google” voice command works superbly even when you are in a noisy environment. It has Ambient Display that allows you to see notifications on screen without consuming power. It has a Doze mode which helps to improve battery life.
Camera

Nexus 5x camera does a great job in taking rich and vibrant close up. Even at night the camera takes great pictures. For selfies and video chatting the front camera does a great job. To take good pictures the rear camera does a great job. It has 2700 mAh battery, Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth 4.2.

Performance

The phone runs smooth and the apps are quick to open. In direct sunlight, the screen really performs well. It delivers quality music and games are fun to play with. The phone does heat up after while watching videos and playing games. The phone runs for 9 hours if you watch video continuously.
Summary

If you are looking for a premium quality build but will be able to manage a big phone 5X is for you. It does not support microSD support. Plus you will now have to manage with Type-C USB. Priced at Rs. 31,900 for 16GB and Rs. 35,900 for 32 GB it does fall into the high end phones.

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
