    It's a really good phone. I ordered it last Saturday from this site and received it yesterday.

    It's amazing the quality of phone you can get nowadays for around $300. Most phones at this price will be lucky to get android n let alone the following version android m. If you looking at a phone to give excellent software support at a budget price then this is it.

    "Yes it's 16GB but that's just sufficient for some people." There, I fixed it.

    Really good phone if you don't need more than 16gb. Had it for 4 months and changed to 6P 32gb.

    Only downside was that it started to become laggy after opening a few apps, 3gb ram would have made it perfect.

    I also find the camera on 5X to be better than 6P.

      I also find the camera on 5X to be better than 6P.

      That's really weird - the camera is literally identical in the 5X and the 6P!

        some people just take bad pictures and blame it on the camera lol

        Aside from the technical specs, position of the lens and different shapes in two devices seem to affect the quality somehow.

        6P also take 240FPS video, and burst mode, 5X only has 120FPS and no burst mode.

        So just because they use the same lens it doesn't mean their performance is identical.

          The only thing I could find was:

          The Nexus 5x has an odd advantage in that since it doesn’t have burst mode you can prime the shutter, keeping that picture-taking time to a minimum when waiting for the ideal shot.

          But, in the same article, it mentioned that 5X was more likely to be affected by lens flare than the 6P.

          I imagine that with the 6Ps beefier chip, processing HDR+ shots would be faster (although I haven't bothered finding out if that's what affects HDR+ processing speed…)

          Articles and comparison shots:

          http://www.xda-developers.com/nexus-6p-vs-nexus-5x-camera/

          I didn't realise that the 6P brought 240 FPS video and burst mode to the table, but once again I think that's a processor (and maybe RAM?) thing.

          Anyway, they both seem pretty damn good to me.

          @Droz: Did you take both pics on both phone at the same time same location? Even with a slight different in light condition is enough to effect pic quality

    is this dual sim ?

    Can't decide between this 16gb with b28 model or the 32Gb with no b28 eBay deal!! What's more important!?

    • +2 votes

      It depends on your personal circumstances. I valued the 16GB b28 model over the 32GB non-b28 model because I realised I don't use that much space on my current phone (Samsung S4, giving it to my parents after I receive the 5X) and it seems a better bet for the global version as I'll use the 5X in Australia and the EU. I generally get in the habit of downloading photos to my PC for processing and clearing out phone RAM, plus run a minimum no. apps. If I need to change up, I can re-sell on the global 5X probably a bit more easily than the HK version also.

    •  

      Yeah true I think I'm in he same boat as you. Got one! 😁

      may as well just get a redmi note 3 pro if you don't care about b28

    $311 is you use the coupon "WELCOME"

  •  

    Brought it for 314 last week :'(

  •  

    I am asking on behalf of a "friend" so please excuse his ignorance. I looked at the specs and it appears this will work under optus 4G. Is this correct? Also, I'm assuming it's a grey market phone. Does this mean any warranty concerns means it needs to be sent back over seas?

  •  

    Unfortunately site charges a $33.90 surcharge if you don't live in a metro city. See: http://puu.sh/orbAE/c0bd1cd9f7.png

    Great price, but this shipping charge hurts. Hoping this is the start of a trend of cheap 5X Globals

    •  

      When you add it to the cart you can choose a cheaper shipping option. I live 5 hours from a metro city and this is the price I get http://i.imgur.com/DMU8m0V.png

        Sadly when I went through the checkout they add the surcharge back on
        http://puu.sh/orei4/739e001185.png

        They have a spreadsheet of 'remote' postcodes here which sadly I fall under.

        Still a great deal, but I hate postage surcharges!

        •  

          Same here. The irony of it is that there is a Toll depot about 300m walk from my delivery address and I have a family friend that does the DHL deliveries for the area and they don't know anything about DHL surcharge for remote areas…

  •  

    Sad to see they got rid of the WELCOME10 code which used to give you 10% off.

    All the comments about photos and videos sticking down all your storage, do you realise that the Google photos app automatically manages your storage? You get unlimited storage in Google photos cloud if you choose "high quality", which surely is fine for 99% of phone photos and videos…
    I haven't run out of storage since I turned this on and I'm managing to get by with 8gb (I don't need much, but I take lots of photo and video - which is syncd each night to Google photos on wifi at home)
    I realise this doesn't help everyone, just for those who don't realise this exists.

    •  

      What if when you're on holiday overseas. Rely on free WiFi to upload your holiday photos so you can delete some to make more space?

      • +3 votes

        As I said, this doesn't help everyone, but it has made it possible to cope with lower storage in a fairly pain free way.

    I was looking at this deal also but I wondered why the price difference is so large between eglobal and Google store itself all the retailers in Australia appear to be over charging with no rhyme or reason if 291 is a retail price.

    •  

      Look up eglobal company reviews. I have toyed with the idea of buying from them before but they have a bad track record of issues (sending out returned items w/ issues) + grey import stock. Your mileage may vary, but I would prefer paying a bit extra for a better company.

    Still waiting on an email back from them after last weekend as to why they will not honour their free shipping as a result of company policy. In short they want me to pay more to sort out their problem.

    "After checking on your order, Unfortunately it has failed our security check due to a high risk score. This maybe due to a high level firewall that was detected from our system. Please place a brand new order using a different ip address (i.e. your home computer).

    After checking with the management, as we are unable to offer free shipping, we can offer $15 discount. Please advise the new order number and we can arrange to make the arrangement.

    We apologize for the inconvenience caused.

    Anybody else having issues with the plug, I recommended this to my mum but she cant get the plug into the adapter (says the pins are two big), also took it to a few shops to buy a different adapter but they had the issue with the pins being too big to fit in the holes.
