    Great Smartphone! Nexus 5x and 6p in Pictures

    Great Smartphone! It's Oct 21st and the Nexus 5x and 6p that I sent for back in 1985 are finally here!

    I was going to write a whole spiel about the 5x and the 6p but I ran out of time so I took the easy way out and just snapped a bunch of pictures.

    Here's the box the Nexus 6p comes in. Apologies for the damage - Andrew and I couldn't help ourselves. Don't judge, you'd do the same thing too.

    Included are a 2 USB-C cables, a long one and a short one along with a charger.

    LG seems to be engaged in some serious cost cutting with the 5x box. The outer cover isn't long enough to cover the whole box.

    You only get one USB-C cable with the 5x.

    And here's the family portrait along with the Nexus' crazy uncle.

    I know looks are subjective but anyone else think the 5x is a bit less photogenic than the 5?

    The 5x has dual front facing speakers so its quite a bit longer than the 5.

    Yes, that's the 2 phones. The 5x really is this much bigger.

    You can think of the USB-C as either being super cool and future proof or you can think that it means your considerable investment in MicroUSB cables is about to go down the sink. Both thoughts are valid.

    The circle is a fingerprint sensor. I'm not sure if I prefer having it on the back like it is here or in front like on a Samsung, iPhone or HTC A9.

    You can't really see it but there's a NanoSIM slot on this side.

    Power and volume buttons.

    Here are the sixes.

    Again maybe it's just me but I think the 6 is a much nicer looking phone than the 6p. Not that it matters I guess.

    The Nexus 6 has a more coherant design.

    If the 5x "isn't very photogenic" then the 6p is downright fugly.

    Someone call the fashion police. Seriously though there's a lot of stuff going on here. Camera, flash and the IR focusing laser - it's the same one you'll find on the 5x and on the LG G4/G4 Vigor. It sounds cool but I don't find it makes much difference. The laser is so weak I doubt it works for more than a few feet. There's also the fingerprint reader.

    Sorry for the questionable quality but I'm out of time so I just grabbed my iPhone for these pictures.

    While it's quite a narrow phone, it's the same length as the 6.

    Again, the USB-C connector. Futureproof or completely unnecessary?

    I will say that the metal body feels quite nice and sleek.

    It also feels quite a bit less bulky/massive than the 6.

    Probably the 6p's best angle.

    The stereo speakers are pretty decent.

    Anyways sorry for the laziness but I'll have full reviews of each phone and giveaways later so look out for them!

    And here are some miscellaneous pics:

    Now to put a USB-C port on the Delorean. I hear it's able to handle the 1.21 jigowatts of power so I can go see the next year's Nexus.

    I wonder if the 6p gets hot with the 810 processor ?

    Since the issue has been so well known for so long, I am sure Google engineers have built in some smart processor throttling to keep temperatures under control

    It gets warm - like any other phone.

    It doesn't get hot.

    I'm not sure if it's because a) it's built on a more refined process which allows it to run faster without getting hot or b) if it just throttles more.

    I did run some preliminary benchmarks and it scores higher than the HTC One M9. Different Android versions aside it also runs a 810 SoC with 3GB of RAM.

    Hate to break it to everyone but the 5X has only a single front-firing speaker, the one below the screen. The one above is earpiece-only.

    My HoFo feedback... is that still a thing?

    That's correct, only the 6P has stereo speakers.

    I agree that neither phone lives up to the aesthetics of their respective predecessors. The 6P would be just fine if it wasn't for that ugly glass bump thing for the sensors. But the reviews I've read seem to have the phones doing very well in all the metrics that really matter, including camera performance. MKBHD said he hasn't had any heat/throttling issues on the 6P. Despite what I've said about Huawei in the past, if I hadn't just bought my 6 in June, I'd have preordered the thing. As it is, I'll sit this generation out because I'm too damn in love with my 6.


    There are mixed reports going around right now that the 5X at least might be Band 12 capable after all, which will be good for T-Mobile users.
    Nexus 6 - 64 GB - Midnight Blue
    Nexus 4 - 16 GB - Black
    Nexus 9 - 32 GB - Black
    And my first: Samsung Galaxy Craptivate.

    I thought both are supposed to get band 12 very soon, if not at actual ship time

    That's what's supposed to happen. I'd wait for actual confirmation.

    "supposed to" is not a very confidence inspiring term in the mobile tech world.

    I'm still testing the 6p and it does get hot enough to throttle. I haven't figured out whether this happens under normal usage though.
