LG Nexus 5X review: Falling short

 

Two years is a long time to own a smartphone when refresh cycles happen twice a year. Software updates play a key role in breathing new life into aging hardware, but the conscientious testing undertaken by carriers can delay releases by three months....

First in line for software updates ; Proficient 12.3MP and 5MP cameras ; Support for USB-C ; Quick finger scanner

No expandable storage ; Lesser battery life ; Unflattering design
