Hands-On With Google’s New Nexus 5X And 6P Phones

Posted on

Google unveiled two new Nexus telephones, an up to date version of its Chromecast dongle and an audio-solely version of the Chromecast at a press occasion in San Francisco in the present day. This was Google’s largest devoted hardware occasion to date, and we spent some high quality time with all the new units.

The metallic-clad Nexus 6P undoubtedly seems like a premium device. It nonetheless has a little bit of heft to it, however as a result of it’s just a little bit smaller, it feels a lot better within the hand than the considerably outsized older Nexus 6. Formally, it’s a tiny bit lighter than the earlier mannequin, however I doubt you’d discover a lot of a distinction. The AMOLED screen appeared nice, however we’d need to spend a bit extra time with it in actual-world circumstances to actually draw any conclusions about it. On the occasion, it appeared very sharp and appeared to render colours properly, however you’d anticipate that from a quad-HD screen.

Inside the managed surroundings of the occasion venue, the camera appeared to work rather well, however we weren’t capable of do any low-mild exams but, for instance.

In comparison with the new Nexus 6P, the smaller Nexus 5X clearly doesn’t fairly really feel as premium — principally as a result of compared to the metallic Nexus 6P, the plastic housing of the 5X is clearly a little bit of a letdown. For about $ one hundred thirty lower than the 6P, that is nonetheless a phone to be reckoned with, particularly as a result of it shares its camera tech with the bigger phone.

The very first thing you’ll in all probability discover concerning the device is that it feels very mild. Provided that it has a 2,four hundred mAh battery, that’s truly shocking. The 1080p screen gained’t blow you away, nevertheless it’s completely positive.

Which one do you have to get? We haven’t spent sufficient time with both of them to offer you a suggestion simply but, however we’ll review each telephones as soon as we get our review models. From the time I spent with them, although, I’d in all probability go for the 6P. In contrast to the final Nexus 6, this one doesn’t really feel as cumbersome — and for me, that was the primary cause why I stored my previous Nexus 5 round till now.
