For many fans, Google’s decision to stop producing the Nexus line was a major source of sadness. However, the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P can still be found on the market with the Android Nougat operating system.
Google’s decision was made in order for the company to begin producing high quality and high-end design phones such as the Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones.
The Pixel line offers devices with top-notch cameras, long battery life, good performance and of course a higher price. Many might say that the price is comparable to an iPhone, which is true; however the quality of the Pixel smartphones is high standard.
For those who remain loyal to the Nexus line, they can still manage to find some handsets. For example, if you get a reconditioned Nexus 5X you could find one for 200 £. A nexus 6P can still be found for 269.99 £.
The specs and features of the Nexus 5X
The Nexus 5X offered buyers a 5.2-inch display, a memory of 2GB of RAM and storage of 16/32GB. The model uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor with 1.8 GHz hexa-core 65-bit. It has two cameras, the frontal one of 5MP and the rear one of 12, 3 MP. The device comes in Carbon, Quarts and Ice.
The specs and features of the Nexus 6P
This smartphone offers a 5.7-inch display, 3GB of RAM and 32/64/128 GB of storage. It also features two cameras, the frontal camera with 8MP and the rear one with 12.3 MP. It uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor. The colors available are Aluminium, Graphite, Frost and Gold (Japan).
All in all, when compared, the Nexus 6P is the better choice if you are interested in storage space, processor quality and RAM. It is sad that the devices will not be produced anymore.
