Leading up to the Nexus announcement in September, the rumors were that both the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P would be sold exclusively on the Google Store. At least in the US. And that had been true, up until today. The Nexus 5X is now available from Amazon, where you can pick it up for the same price as on the Google Store, but if you’re an Amazon Prime member, you can get free two-day shipping, something that can’t be done on the Google Store, unfortunately.
Amazon is offering the Nexus 5X in both the 16GB and 32GB variants, for $379 and $429 respectively. It’s also available in black, white and mint colors. LG is also offering the US Warranty with the purchase of a Nexus 5X from Amazon. Which is not the same as Nexus Protect, which Google is offering on their store for both of these Nexus devices. This simply means that if something’s wrong with your device, LG will take care of it. Still nice to have that piece of mind with a warranty, though.
As a refresher, the Nexus 5X is the 5.2-inch 1080p Nexus from Google and LG and is the successor to the Nexus 5 from 2013. Inside, we also have the hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chipset, along with 2GB of RAM and the choice of 16GB or 32GB of storage. There is no microSD card slot included in the Nexus 5X (or the Nexus 6P). We do have a 2700mAh battery inside which should keep you going all day long, and included is Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which is the latest version of Android from Google. Now an important note for those on T-Mobile. It has not been certified for Band 12 LTE just yet. While the Nexus 6P has been listed as supporting it, it still needs the OTA to officially support it. Which means you won’t get as great coverage inside, on T-Mobile.
