Hardwareedit

The device has a fingerprint sensor on the back called 'Nexus Imprint' which can be used by third party apps8 It is compatible with Project Fi, Google's own mobile network9

In order to save power, Google has introduced what it calls an 'Android Sensor Hub' It is a secondary low-power processor whose purpose is to run activity-recognition algorithms by directly monitoring the device's accelerometer, gyroscope, fingerprint reader, and camera sensors, allowing the main CPU to remain inactive until something requires its attention The Sensor Hub recognizes when the device has been picked up and will automatically display notifications in a low-power white-on-black text until the screen has been properly activated Additionally, the Sensor Hub stack also supports hardware sensor batching, a feature introduced in KitKat that permits sensors to delay for a short period of time the handoff of non-critical data to the operating system – as opposed to sending a constant stream of data to the CPU, which results in the use of more power Sensor batching has been used in step counters to avoid requiring the main processor to constantly remain awake for each step to be measured1011

Google Nexus 5X houses a 123 megapixelSony IMX377EQH5 155 μm pixels f/20 aperture rear camera which is assisted by laser autofocus and dual LED flash It can record 4K UHD videos at 30 FPS and slow motion videos at 120 FPS It also has a 5 megapixel front camera1213

The Nexus 5X has been assessed by iFixIt as easy to repair, the only issues being the lack of removable battery and a display fused with the front glass14

The Nexus 5X and 6P are among the first phones to use the new USB Type-C connector instead of the Micro-USB type, hitherto standard15 Unfortunately, despite the Type-C connector, the USB port will only transfer at USB 20 speeds 480 Mb/s, and not USB 30 speeds 50 Gb/s Also, video is not available on this port, so Type-C-to-HDMI adapters will not work However, USB On-The-Go is supported

Softwareedit

The phone originally came with Android 60 Marshmallow, which includes "Now On Tap", "Doze" battery saving feature, detailed control of app permissions, and support for Google "Imprint" fingerprint sensor16

In December 2015, Google released Android 601 Marshmallow for the Nexus 5X, among other devices17

On August 22, 2016, Google released Android 70 Nougat for the Nexus 5X, as well as several other devices18

On December 6, 2016, Google released Android 711 Nougat for the Nexus 5X, as well as several other devices

Designedit

Color choices include Carbon, Quartz, and Ice The body is a hard polymer plastic with the proximity sensor, light sensor, voice speaker on top of display and audio speaker below display, RGB LED notification light under audio speaker, and front facing camera on front of device The back of the device includes a 123 megapixel camera, Google "Imprint" finger print sensor, dual tone flash, and LGE's laser auto focus19 One side of the device contains the nano SIM slot and the other includes the power button, and volume buttons Microphones are on top and bottom of device20

Problemsedit

Some Nexus 5Xs in early batches had yellow-tinted screens, which Google replaced21

Some users have reported that the display has touch-sensitivity problems when the charger is connected22

Some users have reported spontaneous unrecoverable boot loops The issue seems more prominent following the update to Android 7023 As of November 24th 2016, LG no longer manufactures Nexus 5X motherboards and are offering full refunds for devices experiencing bootloops24 As of the same date, no clear pattern among affected units has emerged and no statement identifying affected models has been made by LG
