LG Nexus 5X vs LG Nexus 5: What’s new

lg-nexus-5x-vs-nexus-5

Last night Google took the wraps off the Nexus 5X at its launch event in San Francisco. A successor to Nexus 5, the new smartphone brings along a host of new features in tow. Right from amped up hardware to the design and build, there are a lot of noticeable changes in the LG Nexus 5X. We pitted the LG Nexus 5X against its predecessor, the Nexus 5, and compared it based on price, specifications and features. Here s how they compare.

Price: While the LG Nexus 5X price for 16GB base variant starts from Rs 31,900, the price for 32GB variant is unknown. In comparison the Nexus 5 was launched a couple of years back, with prices starting from Rs 28,999. The smartphone though can now be picked up for as low as Rs 19,900 for the 16GB variant, and Rs 27,901 for the 32GB variant.

Specifications and features: The Nexus 5X comes with a slightly larger 5.2-inch full HD display and Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection, whereas the Nexus 5 flaunted a 4.9-inch full HD display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection.

Under the hood, the new Nexus 5X is powered by 1.8GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor, whereas the Nexus 5 was powered by a 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core. The RAM on both devices is still the same at 2GB, and internal storage is also the same with 16GB and 32GB variants.

On the photography front, the new Nexus 5X comes with 12.3-megapixel rear camera with dual LED flash. It features what Google calls very large 1.4 micro pixels that helps capture more light, laser autofocus and 4K video recording facility. Up front, there is a 5-megapixel f/2.0 selfie camera.

In comparison, the Nexus 5 came with an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and 1080p video recording facility. Up front there was a 1.3-megapixel selfie camera.

The Nexus 5X comes with a slightly higher battery capacity of 2,700mAh compared to 2,300mAh unit on the Nexus 5. The Nexus 5X also comes with USB Type-C connectivity port that supports fast charging feature. As it s a reversible port, you no longer need to guess which side is up.

The Nexus 5X will ship with Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS out-of-the-box, whereas the Nexus 5 currently runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop OS. However, the Nexus 5 will start receiving the OTA update from next week onwards.

Another huge difference is the presence of the Nexus Imprint fingerprint sensor on the Nexus 5X. This is an advanced fingerprint sensor, which Google says is among the fastest in the market. It is said to take only a couple of seconds to register a fingerprint, and can recognize a fingerprint to unlock the screen in less than 600 milliseconds. Nexus Imprint can also be used to authorize app purchases in the Play Store.

On paper the new Nexus 5X seems a worthy upgrade over its predecessor, as far as specifications and features are concerned. That said, the new smartphone is almost Rs 10,000 more expensive than its predecessor, which could potentially deter some buyers. We will wait until we have reviewed the smartphones before passing our final judgment.
