Everything you need to know about the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P

nexus6pnexus5x_bigAbout a year ago many believed that the Nexus line was dying out. Many rumors speculated that Google was ready to drop the Nexus program altogether but instead gave us a Nexus that even Google admitted failed initial sales expectations. But now, Google has just unveiled two Nexus devices which may just return the Nexus line to its former glory. The two phones in question are the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P. The Nexus 5X is supposed to be the spiritual successor to the Nexus 5 which was a huge success within the android community and arguably the best Nexus device. The Nexus 5X is a phone with some decent specs at a very competitive price point of just $379 which puts it in about the same price range as the One Plus 2 and Moto X Pure Edition. Even though it has a relatively low price point it still manages to pack some pretty serious specs for that price point: Snapdragon 808 processor chip, 2700 mAh battery, 2GB of RAM, a fingerprint scanner and a 12.3 megapixels camera with huge pixels to capture as much light as possible and improve performance in lowlight situations along with the ability to capture 4k video. The Nexus 6P is definitely Google’s flagship device with some seriously powerful internals for just $499 which is much less than many of its competitors such as the iPhone 6S and Galaxy S6. It has a beautiful metal design which makes it seem much more high end than any other Nexus device before it. They reduced the screen size slightly and made it narrower for better usability. It has a quad HD display, 12.3-megapixel camera (same camera as Nexus 5X), a Snapdragon 810 2.0 processor with 3GB of RAM, a fingerprint scanner, USB type-c with fast charging capability and not to mention a pretty big 3450 mAh battery. The Nexus 6P definitely seems to aim more towards power users basically having everything a good smartphone should have on paper. Of course, time will tell if it performs in real time as well as it sounds on paper.
