Smartphones Google Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P

At the beginning of the path line from Google Nexus device was nothing more than an experiment – the company “test the waters”, trying to release the device under its own brand, attracting partners for this purpose as producers. At some point, Nexus was very attractive (Google Nexus 4), with the excellent performance is Google asking less than the rest of the company. Then came the next stage – when the Nexus line has become a more or less balanced against other smartphones (Google Nexus 5, 6), and as the main feature was the priority appears on devices a series of new versions of Android. Smartphones Google Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P – just out of this generation, that is expressly stated in the model name. Quite good, strong unit without pronounced deficiencies and one important advantage over other phones – latest version of OS Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

In this small article I briefly tell you about the two smartphone cite their performance and share their opinions on the models.

More expensive smartphone in the line of the two devices is replacing Google Nexus 6. If you close your eyes to different manufacturers, and look at the dry characteristics, without any additional chips, it appears that the Nexus between 6 and Nexus 6P much in common. However, it is logical, the new model is essentially a neat improvement in the previous one, this is not a new generation, namely “upgrade”. I will not describe the design, it is very subjective, except to say that thanks to the use of aluminum smartphone should be in reality a pleasant and at the same time practical. The housing is made entirely of metal, except for the front panel of glass.

Using a screen based on AMOLED-matrix – probably not the best news for many, but the latest generation of these matrices from Samsung is constantly being improved, so that it is not the colors without the possibility of setting a couple of years ago. Ultimately, you need to look at the machine in person, to see how well set up the screen and how well the matrix itself. High resolution – good enough for most and FullHD, but WQHD accurately enough for everyone.

Platform raises questions. Yes, it uses a recent version of Snapdragon 810, the so-called revision 2.1, which solved the problem with overheating, in particular. But this does not mean that Nexus 6P will have no problems specific to the HTC One M9 and Sony Xperia Z3 Plus. RAM sufficient internal memory to choose from 32 to 128 GB. The memory card slot is not, it’s Nexus.

A special emphasis on the presentation of Nexus 6P was placed on the cells, in particular, on the main 12.3-megapixel camera c 1.55 nm in size terms, laser focus and f / 2.0. On paper and on the official test shots the camera seems very decent, not enough unless the optical stabilization, but, in practice, without OIS camera can produce good results under different conditions. The camera has a mode Auto HDR +. The front camera has a resolution of 8 MP.

Another feature – fingerprint scanner on the “back” device. For the United States to the scanner will be “tied” service Android Pay, for others it’s just a convenient way to lock the device by fingerprint without entering a code.

For Nexus 6P implemented a system Android Sensor Hub, which, for example, partially awakens screen and displays it on the notice and at a time when you just take the smartphone in your hands, but do not touch the power button or fingerprint reader. A similar feature is already implemented by Motorola, as in the old days was present in a slightly different form on smartphones by Nokia.

The sale of the unit will be available in three colors – white, silver and black. The cost is as follows:

  • Google Nexus 6P 32GB – $ 499 US
  • Google Nexus 6P 64 GB – 549 US dollars
  • Google Nexus 6P 128 GB – 649 US dollars

New Nexus 6P is really difficult to name an absolute flagship. Yes, there is a high resolution screen, fast charge (thanks Snapdragon platform 810), 128 GB of internal memory, if desired, a good (still “on paper”) camera and many other things. At the same time, it does not have enough wireless charging for the camera – optical stabilization system, memory card slot, and two slots for SIM-cards for all were happy. Perhaps part of the “hotelok” from this list will appear in the next generation of the Nexus (Nexus 8?), And yet is. At Huawei and Google receives strong, Mighty unit at the competition, however, and at a similar price.

A simpler and cheaper model – Nexus 5X from the company LG. By analogy with the new Nexus 5X 6P is a development usual “five”, which, incidentally, also produced the Korean company LG. The main materials – plastic and glass front panel. The colors – white, black and mint versions. Google Nexus 5X more compact than the older model, it uses a screen with a diagonal of 5.2 ” and a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels based on the IPS LCD matrix.

Platform – Qualcomm Snapdragon 808, for me, it is a better solution than the 810, albeit fresh audit. 2 GB of RAM, built-in – 16 or 32 slots for memory card is not present.

The main camera, according to the description, this set is the same as in the Nexus 6P, just one to one. Furthermore, on the official Google website even examples of photos from the camera for both models are given exactly the same, apparently, someone overlooked. Either way, the characteristics of the camera must be good.

As 6P, there is a fingerprint reader on the “back” building and, of course, Android 6.0 Marshmallow. I liked the younger model primarily for its size and weight – it is noticeably smaller 6P. Again, Google Nexus 5 was very successful, in my opinion, the smartphone: a balanced, adequate for the price, with a good camera and an acceptable speed. If all that is done in the LG, the device is improved in all aspects, and “on paper” it looks that way, it is good and right. Actually, successful device like Nexus 5 is what we wanted.

General for the two new smartphones chips – connector standard USB Type-C, the onscreen touch keys, support for LTE Cat.6, shooting in slow-motion (120 frames for 6P and 240 personnel for 5X).

The cost of a smartphone – 380 US dollars for a younger, 16 GB version.

Both devices are available for pre-order in the official online store and Google will soon go on sale in the US, UK, Japan, and a few weeks later – in a number of other countries. Russia on the list yet.

At this time, Google presentation was even more simple and serene expectancy than in the past year. There was an impression that the company is doing an event for geeks and those who are in the subject, organizing everything is very simple, I would even say, clumsy, and briefly telling fact, and so well-known things. At least, if we talk about the new series of smartphones Nexus. Sami aids – high-quality devices of two different classes. Yes, without any revelations ultralow prices or “wow performance”, but here it should be remembered that the line of Nexus – it is primarily a platform for a clean system Android, and Google does everything right, providing annual actual iron to everyone who He wants to be always with the latest version of OS Android.
