LG Nexus 5X Doesn’t Age!
Google launched a bunch of smartphones along the years and there’s one that stood the test of time better than the rest. We are talking about Nexus 5X’s and the fact that despite its age, it’s still highly popular to this day. The smartphone features a balanced mix of hardware specs and operating system updates and this is what makes it viable to be a daily driver even in 2017.
Nexus 5X was launched back in October of 2015 and surprisingly, its hardware specs are still capable of running heavy tasks. LG is the company that’s responsible for Nexus 5X’s durable specs while Google is the one who makes sure to roll out important operating system updates to it. Today we will take a closer look under Nexus 5X’s hood and see what makes it so special.
Taking in consideration the fact that Google is directly managing Nexus 5X, no one should be surprised to find out that even though Nexus 5X ships with Android 6.0 Marshmallow it can easily be upgraded to Google’s latest Android 7.1.2 Nougat. Being able to download Google’s latest operating system is really great since it brings a ton of new features which enhance Nexus 5X’s user experience.
Leaving the operating system aside, LG’s hardware specs are what actually helped in keeping Nexus 5X alive after all those years. The smartphone is powered by a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor which clocks at 1.8GHz and that’s coupled with an Adreno 418 graphics processing unit. Furthermore, LG has made sure to pair Nexus 5X’s processor with 2GB of RAM and a rather large non-removable Li-Po 2,700 mAh battery.
Nexus 5X seems to be an all-round great smartphone that’s more than capable of performing heavy duties. Nexus 5X might not on the same level as Samsung’s Galaxy S8 or even Google’s Pixel flagship but it can still be easily used as a daily driver.
