Google Nexus 5x Review

Though many are of the opinion that Google should start off with its own hardware devices that are best suited for its operating system, Android the closest one could get is the Nexus. Nexus 5x is a Google attempting to make up for the disappointment many mid range users felt with Nexus 6. This latest model is released with LG hardware and the design looks much similar to what Moto Nexus was. This indicates that Google has maintained its design between the two models. This article gives you an in-depth Google Nexus 5x review.

1: Design:

First mention in the Google Nexus 5x review is its design. With its 5.2 inch screen it is definitely more convenient to hold on to the phone in one hand compared to Google Nexus 6. The phone is light due to its plastic panel and it comes in matte finish colours of black, white and greenish blue. The screen of the phone spills over slightly to the edges. Though it is convenient to swipe across the screen while using it in one hand, it can get a bit daunting to continually use it with one hand. Another observation is that, the phone looks nothing like a LG handset and more or less resembles what the Moto Nexus used to look like.
