This smartphone features a hexa-core 1.8 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor and 2GB of RAM. It also comes equipped with 32GB of storage. The integrated USB Type-C interface allows you to connect the device for mass-storage purposes. This is LG's third Nexus (4, 5 and now 5X). The design has shifted from the LG Nexus 4 and 5 exterior to something that could have come out of Motorola's sketchbooks. The fact that the Nexus 5X doesn't feel like it belongs in the LG lineup is a clear sign that the 5X is more Google than LG.
The Nexus 5X houses a 5.2" IPS LCD display, which is designed to deliver robust imagery and color depth. Its 1920 x 1080 native screen resolution lets you watch Full HD content without pixel loss. The Nexus 5X features a powerful dual-camera array: a 12.3MP rear camera with a pixel size of 1.55µm and f/2.0 aperture and a 5MP front-facing lens. The rear camera's larger pixel size is designed to absorb more light, producing sharp photos even in low-light conditions.
The Sony IMX377 sensor is not very high resolution - 12.3MP - but it has 1.55µm pixels (for comparison, the iPhone 6 has 1.5µm pixels). Physically, it is a large sensor, 1/2.3", matching the Xperia Z series, which pumps out a lot more megapixels than the Nexus 5X.
It also has a relatively wide aperture of f/2.0, dual-LED flash and laser autofocus. There's no Optical Image Stabilization though, like the 2013 model had. Also, there doesn't seem to be phase-detection AF, just contrast + laser. The selfie camera uses a 5MP sensor (from OmniVision), also with an f/2.0 aperture. Both main and front camera have HDR+ mode.
Video mode gives you a choice of 2160p @ 30fps and 1080p @ 30fps for common shooting with a 720p @ 120fps option if you want some slow-motion effects. There's no 1080p @ 60fps mode though, which would make a big difference for fast-paced scenes. Also, changing resolution involves going into the settings, which isn't all that convenient. Anyway, the 2160p videos are captured at 42Mbps bitrate and have rock solid 30fps
The Android operating system integrates heavily with Google's services. It's a personalized and customizable OS, allowing you to add your favorite apps or widgets to your homescreen. You can even download new themes using the Google Play Store, which offers access to more than one million apps, games, books, music, movies, and more.
With Android 6.0 Marshmallow overhauls permissions, allowing you to have finer control over what your applications have access to. It also marks the debut of Now on Tap, a context-sensitive update to Google Now that checks your current screen for keywords and then searches for them automatically.
The LG Nexus 5X comes equipped with an LTE Cat. 6 modem for speeds up to 300Mbps down and 50Mbps up. Besides that you have the usual Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac at 2.4GHz and 5GHz and Bluetooth 4.2 with A2DP. The LG Nexus 5X comes with a 2,700mAh battery, not big for its size, but a definite improvement over the 2,300mAh battery and it has a new OS feature to make sure the battery is used efficiently. The standby power draw of the Nexus 5X is pretty good, especially for this capacity. Even so the total standby rating isn't that high, the poor video playback in particular drags down the result.
