Google Nexus 5X




Google Nexus 5X (SIM Free / UK)

The all-Round Champ is Back

The compact, lightweight 5X mobile phone offers a 5.2-inch display, a fingerprint sensor, the best camera ever created for Nexus, and the latest Android technology.

USB Type-C

The Google Nexus 5X is one of the first mainstream phones to come with a USB Type-C connector. This is different to the standard micro USB connector seen on most new phones.

In the box you will find a cable with a USB Type-C connector on both ends. We sell spares of this cable here. You will also find the included mains adaptor has a USB Type-C port.

If you don't have a computer with a USB Type-C port, you may be interested in a USB Type-C to Type-A cable. This will also work with mains adaptors that have a standard Type-A port.

The popular Nexus 5 has been redesigned with an improved specification, more fitting of a 2015 Nexus device of 2015 but with a familiar form factor.

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 take on the day with you. Beneath the 5.2 inch 423ppi Full HD IPS display is a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor, giving you world-class speed at an affordable price. Coupled with 2GB or RAM all of your daily tasks are handled with ease.

A Powerful Camera that Captures More Light

The best all-around camera Google has put into a Nexus. The Sony camera senor really shows its power in conditions with less than ideal lighting. The larger 1.55um pixels capture more light, even in the dimmest conditions, to produce stunning details and sharp images. With a faster Google Camera app and dual LED flash you never miss a moment.

The Nexus 5X is also capable of capturing 4K and slow-motion videos, making this phone the most advanced multimedia Nexus device to date.

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

The Nexus 5X is quicker and more secure with a built in fingerprint sensor. Placed on the back of the 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 make contactless payments with Android Pay (where supported).

The new standard: USB Type-C

The new USB Type-C charger is reversible, which means no more guessing which way is up. With faster data transfer speeds, it also means you can charger your device faster. Quick charging technology means that you can get almost four hours of use after only ten minutes of charging.

Always New. Now Running Marshmallow.

Built from the inside out to make the most of the world’s most popular OS, Nexus is the ultimate Android experience. You are always among the first to receive software updates. And you will have the freshest, fastest version, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, working for you right out of the box.

Key new features include:

  • Now on Tap which anticipates what you need in the moment. With a simple tap, you can get cards with useful information and apps that feed your need to know.
  • Permissions your way means there is no need to give apps access all the time. Android Marshmallow lets you define what you want to share and when. Turn permissions off at any time too.
  • Battery saving features
    • Doze
      When your device is at rest, Doze automatically puts it into a sleep state. So your phone can still set off your alarm in the morning even if you forgot to charge it.
    • App Standby
      No more battery drain from seldom used apps: App Standby limits their impact on battery life so that your charge lasts longer.

Nexus 5X comes with the best Google apps pre-installed, so it's ready to use right out of the box. Search, Maps, Chrome, YouTube, Photos, Gmail, Drive and so much more; it is all just there and ready for you to enjoy on your phone.
