Nexus 5X Hands-On: Light, Fun, And Friendly

The Nexus 5X is, by Google's own admission, a spiritual successor to the very-popular-for-what-it-was Nexus 5. It has a reasonably-sized display at 5.2 inches with a reasonable 1080p resolution, a not too fast, not too slow Snapdragon 808 processor, and comes with a usable if not super-capacious 16 or 32GB of internal storage. At just $379 to start, the Nexus 5X isn't the cheapest "nice" smartphone we've seen, but it is certainly nothing if not cheerful, especially in this light blue shade (which is indeed blue, I promise).

The phone feels fast, as does just about any Nexus running a fresh build of Marshmallow.

Well you don't have to wait at all to find out, because Google already has quite a few cases and cables on the Google Store for both devices. I'm going to cut right to the chase and dump all the information.

[Update: Installment Pricing] The Nexus 5X And Nexus 6P Are Compatible With Project Fi And All Major US Carriers

As if there was any doubt, both the LG Nexus 5X and the Huawei Nexus 6P, introduced today at Google's yearly Nexus event, will be compatible with Project Fi. That makes them just the second and third phones (after the Nexus 6 from last year) to be available on Google's combination Wi-Fi/LTE mobile virtual network, which uses both the T-Mobile and Sprint networks as a backbone. Fi switches rapidly between T-Mobile, Sprint, and Wi-Fi (VOIP) for data and calls, and that little extra functionality means that conventional smartphones need not apply.

Chromecast App Update Will Add Content Discovery, Multiple Device Control, And Comprehensive Video Search

In addition to revised hardware for Chromecast and the new Chromcast Audio, Google also announced a new version of the Chromecast app at its San Francisco event. This updated app is more than just a connection tool, it's a content discovery portal, automatically detecting Chromecast and Chromecast Audio-compatible apps on your phone or tablet. It will show popular and personalized content suggestions to users, and recommend new Chromecast apps from the Play Store.

The new default screen is What's On, a sort of pick-and-mix of the Chromecast-compatible content on your phone right now. It's presented in a scrolling list of categories, not unlike the home page of the Play Store app.

Chromecast Gets A New Model With Improved Wi-Fi And A Hockey Puck Design, Chromecast Audio Connects Speakers To Wi-Fi - Both Available Today For $35 Each

Google's Chromecast streaming gadget was a surprise success when the company introduced it in 2013 - although perhaps not so surprising when you consider that it plays web video from a variety of services and undercuts even the cheapest competitors from the likes of Roku and Apple TV. Chromecast hasn't had a major revision in over two years, perhaps because it hasn't really needed one. But now there's one available, a new hockey puck design with an "dangling" HDMI port, wider Wi-Fi support, and better video thanks to an improved antenna design.

But fret not, dear friends, because good news is afoot: Marshmallow will begin making its way to the Nexus 5, 6, 7 (2013), 9, and Player starting "next week" — most likely on October 5th like we heard yesterday. That's also the day that we expect 6.0 to start hitting AOSP.
