Google Nexus 5X Reviews Roundup


Release date: 22 October 2015

Summary: After a long wait the follow-up to the much loved Nexus 5 has finally arrived in town. The overall consensus is that the Google Nexus 5X will be a firm favourite with current Nexus 5 fans but may fail to win over those that are more design conscious. Star standouts include the fingerprint sensor, camera and the new Marshmallow operating system. Sticking points involve the plastic design and poor battery performance.
