Nexus 5X arrives in Europe for pre-orders, set to ship on November 9th
If you live in Europe and have been waiting for Google to list the Nexus 5X, we have great news for you. The stock Android handset is now being listed in the continent on your country's Google Play Store.  But be forewarned. The 16GB Nexus 5X is $149 more in Euros when you do the conversion. The 32GB version is $154 more expensive in Euros. In addition, European buyers don't receive the $50 Google Play Store credit, or the 90-day free Play Store Music subscription that U.S. buyers get.

Perhaps to partially make up for that difference, those buying the Nexus 5X in Spain, Italy, Germany and France could find themselves with a free Chromecast. Even with that thrown into the equation though, European consumers are reaching much deeper into their wallets for the model, compared to U.S. buyers. Units start shipping on November 9th.

To refresh your memory, the Nexus 5X is equipped with a 5.2-inch LCD screen, carrying a 1080 x 1920 resolution. That works out to a resolution of 423ppi. A Snapdragon 808 SoC is under the hood, featuring a hexa-core 1.8GHz CPU and the Adreno 418 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside, along with 32GB/64GB of non-expandable native storage. 

A 12.3MP rear camera comes with an aperture of f/2.0, and the 5MP front-facing camera takes selfies and handles video chats. A 2700mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Android 6.0 is pre-installed.

For some reason, iPhone 6 still better than this new Nexus 5X. Shame that they can't improve better than the older iPhone 6. Just saying my opinion. Only the battery life is the advantages but it doesn't matter if you have powerbank.
