The Nexus 5X is a delightful device. It does not overawe you with highly saturated images, power-packed specifi cations, or any of that. This year, the Nexus is all about taming the power, and using available resources in full glory. Priced at Rs. 31,900, the Nexus 5X beats all other similarly-priced devices not only in terms of brilliance in performance, but also in streamlining the entire
device. The Nexus 5X, truly, is Android in all of its glory.
The Nexus 5X is very passive in terms of looks. Neatly liveried in black, matte plastic, it is no beauty pageant, and while the Nexus logo on the back makes it stand out among the sea of other similar Androids, maybe LG could have designed it that much better.The 5.2-inch, IPS panel LCD display, at a resolution of 1080×1920 pixels, is just the right balance of brightness, contrast, sharpness and colour. The Nexus 5X is an embodiment of performance prowess, and brings out the very best out of the Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor. The Adreno 418 GPU renders good graphics, and the performance is streamlined for high octane games. With the Nexus 5X, Android is as close as it can get to seamless performance, that iOS has been renowned for. The Nexus 5X is not about the amount of RAM that it contains, or the number of cores that the processor comprises – it is all about optimising available resources to give the best possible performance, and it does so with competence of a true fl agship smartphone.
