Nexus 5X was rolled out to the market as a part of Google's 7th gen Nexus smartphones (along with the Nexus 6P), in October 2015 as the descendant of the Nexus 5 from 2013.
Both Nexus 5 and the 5X are made by LG, but 5X is way ahead of what the predecessor was at the time of launch: though it is established that the Nexus 5 was a high-end smartphone, the Nexus 5X has been built as per 2015 and 2016 standards, like of a mid-range device. In addition to this, at launch, the Nexus 5X will cost more than 5. Here are the reasons that make this phone the best mid-range smartphone currently available in the US:
The Nexus 5X is powered by stock Android 6.0 Marshmallow (now upgraded to 6.0.1) which will give you unparalleled Google experience
The fingerprint scanner, known as the Nexus Imprint is the fastest scanner out there.
Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P also sport the same rear camera sensor: a 12.3 MP Sony IMX377 one with more-than-conventional pixels (1.55 μm), laser auto focus, and 4K video recording.
It has got USB Type-C port, the 2700 mAh non-removable battery that gets fully charged in an hour and hour; enough to last for a day.
Google Nexus 5X boasts a 5.2-inch IPS screen with 1080 x 1920 pixels and 423 ppi, which is quite sharp.
The 16GB variant will cost $299 and the 32GB variant would cost $349.
