Hitting the sweet spot

Capturing the soul of the Nexus family, the 5X offers top-line performance in a compact, lightweight device that's ready to go anywhere, anytime. Beneath the 5.2-inch display is a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor for world-class speed at an affordable price.

A powerful camera that catches more light

The best all-around camera we've ever put into a Nexus shines in low-light conditions. Its larger 1.55μm pixels capture more light even in the dimmest conditions to produce stunning details and sharp images. With a faster Google Camera app, you'll never miss a moment, and with the smart Google Photos app, your memories are easy to relive and always at your fingertips.

All your photos, organized and easy to find

All your photos, organized and easy to find Google Photos is a new way to store, search, and share all your photos and videos. Store an unlimited amount of photos and videos at high quality for free, and access them anywhere. Automatically organized and searchable by the people, places, and things in them, your memories are always easy to find and share.

Simplified security: Nexus Imprint

Your Nexus is quicker and more secure with a fingerprint sensor. Placed on the back of your device to complement the way you naturally hold it, Nexus Imprint will turn on your screen with one touch, unlock your apps quickly and easily, and let you breeze through checkout lines. And, by incorporating measurements each time you use it, Nexus Imprint gets smarter with every touch.

The new standard: USB Type-C™

The USB Type-C charger is reversible, which means no more guessing which way is up. And it's fast—get almost four hours of use after only ten minutes of charging.

Always new. Now running Marshmallow.

Built to get the best out of the world's most popular OS, Nexus is the ultimate Android experience. You're always among the first to receive software and security updates*. And you'll have the freshest, fastest version—Android 6.0 Marshmallow—working for you right out of the box.

What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good phone but... it stopped working a month after the one year warranty - it has the "bootloop" issue. apparently it is a very common issue, and many people's 5X failed shortly after their warranty expired as well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke because of trash reasoning I brought in my phone asking about why it broke according to the customer service the phone got moisture inside of it due to the atmosphere varying it in therefore corroding the insides and when I asked for a replacement they said that because the moisture got into the phone THROUGH THE ATMOSPHERE it was my problem and there was nothing I could do, with a phone being so cheap that moisture in the air can break it I greatly recommend you do not purchase this phone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It stopped working just shortly after 1 year I bought my Nexus 5X in February 2016. Overall, it seemed good. However, in April 2017 (just 1 year and 2 months after I bought it) it crashed while I was sending a sms and never worked again. First, the screen froze. I turned it off and when I tried to turn it on again, it never did. I researched in the Internet and this seemed to be a recurrent problem with this phone. Users posted a few trouble shootings. I tried them all. I talked to my carrier, to Google and to LG (Philippines, US, and Canada) for hours and they had no other trouble shootings to recommend. They told me to repair it because the warranty was only valid for 1 year (I was barely 2 months off). After 2 weeks, the repair shop gave up on it saying that after replacing the power button 3 times and having read that this was a common flaw, there was nothing they could do. I am stuck with my carrier for 2 years!!! So I still have to find a phone for the remaining 10 months of my contract. It is worth mentioning that the same happen to my Nexus 4, only in that occasion, this happened 2 years and 3 months after I had bought it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great price for great value Have a Nexus 4, love it. Upgrading to a Nexus 5x rather than 6P because I like LG. Can`t beat the low price for a full feature phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome phone, ahead of its time The LG Nexus 5 was my first smartphone. Before this one I had two other LG cell phones and only stopped using them because the technology was outdated and not supported. My LG Keybo was awesome and worked wickly until I upgraded to the Nexus, this, even after I ran it over with my ATV!!! The only problem with the Nexus is no upgrade able internal memory i.e. micro SD card slot

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the LG Nexus 5x As the second LG Nexus hardware I have owned I have nothing but great things to say bout my Nexus 5x! I love the sleek look of the design and the size is perfect. The phone comes pre-loaded with all of the Google apps and products I use most often which was convenient and syncs with my lifestyle. I am always recommending the product to friends and family as an affordable piece of hardware that will make your life easier!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly a great product! This is my first Smart Phone. I'm thrilled with it!! The Camera on this product is truly awesome. I bought this phone and I use 7-11 Speak out Prepaid Cell Cards with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nexus The Nexus 5x is a good successor to the 5 but it could be a bit faster as i had to root it to adjust for the thermal throttling but i put all this on Google for bad optimization of Marshmallow not on LG The overall build quality is good
