The Nexus 5X was overpriced at launch time, but has come back into the reckoning after price cutsDec 09 2015 By Deepak Dhingra
At launch time, the Nexus 5X was priced at Rs 31,990 for the 16 gig model, while the 32GB variant was priced at a hefty Rs 35,990. At that price, we probably would’ve trashed it completely, since that’s premium territory and this phone’s plasticky build doesn’t justify that kind of outlay at all. However, a couple of drastic price cuts (that happened within a few days of launch), mean you can now get the 16GB variant for around Rs 25,000, and the 32 gig version for roughly Rs 30,000. The price reduction means the 5X, which seemed like a frail warrior earlier, has sharpened its sword and is back in the reckoning… and if you’ve read our review in its entirety, you’d know that it’s quite the all-rounder. The device manages to score in most vital aspects, offering a smooth performance, versatile cameras that offer good image quality, and excellent battery life. The good call quality is the icing on the proverbial cake. And how can we forget the platform? One of the first phones to run the latest version of Android and bringing all the new features that are part of the revamp, the Nexus 5X showcases the platform in all its stock, virginal glory. Then there’s the promise of speedy updates, straight from Google’s servers.All this combined put the Nexus 5X into a special category, but we can’t ignore its faults either – the plastic body that completely sours the deal as far as we’re concerned, along with the fixed storage. At ~ Rs 25k, the 16GB model isn’t a bad deal, but the limited amount of storage available would be a problem for all except those who just use their phones for basic tasks. Others would need to consider the 32GB variant, which now costs ~ Rs 30k after the price drop, but still remains in the premium domain. At this price, the Moto X Style (review) also becomes a compelling proposition, and while it isn’t for those who hate large-screened phones, it does have a lot to offer, including premium looks and build, a high-res screen, more RAM, and expandable storage. Do note that this device also runs stock Android, and has already received the Marshmallow update. If compact phones are more your thing and you’re ready to shell out a little extra, the Samsung Galaxy S6 (first impressions) is also worth a look for around Rs 35,000. The Marshmallow-laden HTC One A9 (first impressions) also deserves consideration in this price bracket.If you need a quick verdict on the Nexus 5X, we won’t beat about the bush. It’s a good device, but we’d probably wait for further price cuts before it really starts to entice us. And if you can’t wait and are really after a Nexus, let us remind you that the more premium Nexus 6P is out there as well and while it isn’t for the small-handed or the light-pocketed, is an excellent choice.
I bought Nexus 5x from eBay as it was selling cheaper during diwali offer.This review is for those who are confused to choose between Nexus 5x and 6P.nEarlier i have used Nexus 5/ Moto X Play/ One Plus Two. But When i started using the Nexus 5x i am completely surprised. The experience is so much amazing that i have decided never to use a non-nexus device in future.n1. Camera: If you are a camera lover, (especially low light photography)please buy this phone. This is by far the best camera(both in low light and day light) experience i have. It is better than OP2 and Moto xPlay's 21MP camera.NEXUS 5x and 6P has same camera performance.n2. Fingerprint Scanner(FS): The best/perfect FS out in the market right now. It takes only 6 touch to configure and works every time. So it is better than OP2 which is good but not as fast as Nexus 5x. NEXUS 5x and 6PP has similar FS experience.n3. Light weight: I do lots of surfing and watch videos. Both OP2 and Moto X play are good mobiles but they are too heavy(with silicon back case applied). After 10 minutes i feel like holding bricks in my hand. But with Nexus 5x i am so happy as it is very lightweight. 5/5 again. NEXUS 6P is much heavier than 5x.n4. Smaller size: Again after using bigger mobiles like OP2 and Moto X Play when i touched Nexus 5x, it was very pleasant experience. 5.2 inch screen is perfect for me. Neither too big not too small for watching videos and surfing. Nexus 6P is again much bigger.n5. Android M and future updates: I am a kind of person who cannot wait for future android updates.With Nexus 5x now i don't have to worry about future updates. Considering the track of Nexus 5(released in 2013 and received updates till 2015), Nexus 5x will receive all android updates till 2017. It means i can use it till late 2018 with updated software all the time.But such a promise cannot be expected from companies like Motorola and One Plus. So NOW I AM TENSION FREE FOR 3 YEARS AS FAR AS UPDATES ARE CONCERNED. NEXUS 5x and 6P both will get same set of updates.n6. Earphone provided with the mobile is very very good. Many times better than what Motorola provides. NEXUS 5x and 6P have similar earphones.n7 Gaming performance: Though i am not a serious gamer but i decided to test its gaming performance. I played games like Asphalt, San Andreas, Mortal Combat. GAMING PERFORMANCE is really good on NEXUS 5x. BUT NEXUS 6P IS MUCH BETTER FOR GAMING. SO GAMERS CHOSE NEXUS 6P.n8. Battery: Now this is a tricky comparison. Nexus 5x has 2700mah which takes around 90 minutes to completely charge itself with usb type c adaptor. for heavy use it lasts 12 hours on average. But my Moto x play which has 3630 mah battery does not have fast charger and with the charger provided it takes around 3 hours to completely charge the mobile and on heavy usage it lasts for 24 hours only. So considering the time it takes to charge the mobile i think Nexus 5x beats Moto x play and OP2(it takes around 150mins to completely charge itself). So unless and untill you do lots of travelling without power banks Nexus 5x battery will not disappoint you. AGAIN NEXUS 6P HAS MUCH BETTER BATTERY. SO IF BATTERY IS YOUR FIRST priority BUY NEXUS 6P.nSome features of Nexus 5x which did not impress me:n1. Single sim: i usually prefer double sim mobiles Except Nexus 5, all the mobiles i use are double sim. But i already have a good secondary mobile like redmi 2 prime at low cost to solve this issue.n2. Usb type c charger: I had to purchase a type c to micro usb adaptor separately.n3. Storage: I would love to have micro sd card slot on Nexus 5x. But as 32 GB model has 25GB free space. So it is not bad. BUT NEXUS 6P HAS 64GB MODEL TOO. IF YOU ARE BUYING NEXUS 5X PLEASE NEVER BUY 16GB MODEL.n4. Plastic back cover: Many people might get disappointed by non-metal finish. SO NEXUS 6P IS THE REAL PREMIUM NEXUS OF 2015.n5. 2GB RAM: In my daily experience i did not feel any lag with 2 GB RAM provided. But considering other manufacturer offer atleast 3GB RAM in 30K price range i think it is a con. 2GB RAM OF NEXUS 5X IS NOT GOOD FOR MULTITASKING. WE GET ONLY 600-700MB FREE OUT OF 2GB.nNEXUS 6P HAS 3GB RAM.n6. battery: it drains like water. heavy users will not like it. NEXUS 6P IS MUCH BETTER IN TERMS OF BATTERY.nWho should choose Nexus 5x:n1. If you like small screen and light weight mobile.n2. Medium and light users of mobile.n3. Casual gamers.n4. Have power banks or can recharge mobile anytime during the day.n5. Non-geeks.n6. Cannot afford NEXUS 6P.n7. Those who do not do MULTITASKING .n8. WANT TO UPGRADE FROM NEXUS 5 OF 2013.nWho should buy NEXUS 6P:n1. Heavy/power usersn2. If you do lots of MULTITASKING.n3. Like phablets and comfortable with heavy weightn4. Better battery requirement.n5. Geeks who want best processor in the market and can afford it.n6. Need more storage like 64GB.
Nowadays buying a mobile is almost like investing your money.nNexus 5x is the best mobile if you want to buy a mobile in the range of 20-25k today. The reason is it has only few cons. n1. Single simn2. Average battery - 2700mah battery can provide screen on time of around 210-240 mins. So battery performance is just average. But it is not bad. Considering mobiles like moto x play and one plus two with much Bigger battery go upto 300 mins approx. n3. No sd card support - i think this is the biggest con of nexus 5x. If you have otg it is fine. But i still miss sd card a lot. nnBut the pros of nexus 5x outweighs cons nn1. Excellent camera- it produces ultimate images Both in daylight and lowlight. I want to give 100 out of 10. Amazing performance. n2. Amazing gaming performance - outstanding. You will love it. It can manage any game in high reaolution with butter smoothness. n3. Light weight and apt size of 5.2 inches. Those who like smaller device will love it. n4 timely software updates - though it is not always a good thing as we get many bugs with new updates too. But still mine has got android 6.0.1 on 14th december.n5. Type c charger can charge nexus 5x in 90 mins. nnIn short i would like to say that if camera and gaming performance are your first two priority then buy this mobile . Do not think twice. Unless and untill you want to wait for xiaomi mi5 in april or may 2016. nnIf battery and storage is your first two priority and you do not want to buy nexus 5x, then wait for mi5 . Do Not waste money on one plus two or moto x play now.
