We like the Nexus 5X a lot. The LG made device built on the original Nexus 5 of two years ago, which itself was a stunning handset, and has been a success with consumers. If you want to pick up the Nexus 5X in time for Christmas then you will be able to get it for $50 off. Google has cut the price of the handset by that amount on the Google Play Store for the holiday season.There are two variants of the Nexus 5X of course, so the 16GB version will now cost $330 (down from $380) while the 32GB version is now $380. The deals is also available through retailers Amazon and B&H, both of which offer the handset unlocked.
Indeed, the Nexus 5X is such a potent all-round device that it provides a compelling alternative to the more expensive and bigger Nexus 6P from Huawei. Of course, the 6P is a full on flagship and shapes up pretty spectacularly itself, but nevertheless there is a lot to like about the Nexus 5X. Aesthetically the Nexus 5X is not a huge departure from the original LG Nexus from two years ago, although it has been modernized and looks good. Like all Nexus smartphone, the 5X is not going to push the sexiest devices in its price class, but it is a solid looking smartphone regardless. The specs are where LG and Google have made the most improvements, and in that regard the Nexus 5X is mostly a brand new handset. It gets a 5.1-inch IPS LCD display with Full HD 1080p resolution, a hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, the same chipset used in LG?s 4G flagship. Other specs include 2GB of RAM, the same 12.3 megapixel snapper found on the Nexus 6P, a 5 megapixel front facing lens, a 2700mAh juicer, and 16GB or 32GB storage options. Some other specs include a front facing speaker, a one tap fingerprint scanner on the rear, and USB Type-C compatibility.
