But now that the Nexus 5X is here as the Nexus 5’s successor, let’s just see how well the Nexus 5X and LG G4 contend, shall we? Hit the break to see these two players go head to head!
Google today at an even in San Francisco introduced two new Android smartphones into the world–the LG-made Nexus 5X and the Huawei-manufactured Nexus 6P. Both devices are impressive handsets, but it goes without saying, the Nexus 6P is Google’s “flagship” model.

In the latter case, the device could go ahead and display notifications. Read more
Today, Google showed us a lot of new hardware. The company launched the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Pixel C and two new Chromecast models. Most of those devices are actually available right now through the Google Store.
The Accessories section of the Google Store just got busier. With the introduction of the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, Google needed to bring in new cases and cables.

So now there are all different types of cables that allow your device with a USB Type-C port to work with other phones, ports, and chargers.
