nexus 5x second opinions aa (6 of 10)

If you’re in the market for a new phone, and you’re looking for an absolutely pure Android experience, you just got lucky. As part of a daily deal, 16GB Nexus 5Xs are going on sale at Ebay for $312. That’s almost $40 off the normal price, which makes this a pretty solid deal.

The Nexus 5X isn’t quite a flagship-tier device, but nevertheless, you get a lot of bang for your buck with this smartphone. Although it’s priced as a mid-ranger, it runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow right out of the box and has a very impressive camera. The 5X is somewhat of a reimagining of the Nexus 5, which some regard as the best phone of the Nexus line for its time to date.

Spec-wise, we’re looking at a 5.2-inch LCD display with Gorilla Glass 3. The processor is a 2.0GHz hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 MSM8992 riding on top of 2GB of RAM. The device comes in 16GB and 32GB variations, but the one on sale right now is the smaller 16GB version. The battery is so-so with 2700mAh, but the rear-mounted fingerprint scanner is top-notch and highly responsive. The 12.3MP main camera is phenomenal with its laser-assisted auto-focus and high quality low light capabilities.

The casing is plastic, so if you’re coming from a device made from metal and glass, you might note that the 5X doesn’t have quite the “premium” feel that you’re used to. Nevertheless, its construction and design are very solid, and even if it’s a little light in your hand, it by no means feels cheap. Plus, that pure, vanilla Android means that you’ll be getting absolutely zero bloatware. You’d really be hard pressed to get this much cool tech crammed into a handset for a lower price.
