    Hmmm this or the 6P? Going to be touch deciding. I like smaller devices but the 6P might be the one.

    If 5x had battery and storage of 6p it would be a no brainer. As it is, neither one interests me.

    Yeah, same thing here. Neither interests me. Much as I dislike the size of the Nexus 6, I've seen deals for $299, and at least it has the wireless charging that the Nexus phones leave out. It's just a very inconvenient size for me. Storage isn't an issue since I've had a 32GB Nexus 7 (2013) for a couple of years now and am still not at the halfway point.

    I'm beyond disappointed that either of these phones come with 16GB.
    Totally agree with Xeene... ZERO interest in either of these.

    I can't believe 32GB isn't the standard for 2015.

    Well, I decided. 5X or 6P? No, I got a deal on a Nexus 6 for $299, new from this eBay auction: Nexus 6 XT1103 (Latest Model) - 32GB - (Unlocked) Smartphone I figure if i don't like its awkward large size, I can turn it around and not lose much money. Many used Nexus 6 phones are selling for more than $299 at the moment. The price of the 5X for what it offers isn't that good, and it lacks wireless charging and has a few other quirks I don't like, so that killed the idea of the 5X for me. Certainly a letdown.
