What are your favorite Nexus 5X and 6P chassis colors?
posted by Daniel P. / Oct 01, 2015, 8:25 AM
Nexus 5X strays away from the flashy exquisite red of its LG-made predecessor, introducing a more nuanced pastel color instead. With a renewed emphasis on design, Google also partnered with Huawei for an all-metal Nexus 6P, which comes in Aluminium, Graphite, and Frost colors, as well as a golden version, which, however, will only be hitting Japan for now.
As a reminder, the 5X comes with a 5.2" 1080p display, Snapdragon 808 silicon, 2 GB of RAM, and a new 12.3 MP camera on the back that offers large, 1.55 micron pixels to rake in more light.
The phone is built from polycarbonate, while the Nexus 6P, on the other hand, offers an "aeronautic-grade" aluminum chassis, Snapdragon 810, 5.7" WQHD Super AMOLED display, and the same unique 12.3 MP camera. Which color would you pick, if you are eyeing one of these two new Nexus warriors?

I would say the majority put a case on there phones. So Why dont case manufacturers etch the word Nexus on the back of there cases??? clear case does not look as good on a black phone than a white phone.??? I want to shout I Have A Nexus Phone. If there is one for the 5x please provide the link

I like to rock my phones naked with a tempered glass protector as I'm pretty careful with how I handle my devices, but I do love your idea of etching the word nexus on the various cases. My 6P will have a case on it, I'd say 30% of the time that I'll own it. However, if I find one that is super slim and light weight then I'll certainly grab a couple of those and leave it on.

The Nexus 6P is looking so boss. Also the one time $89.00 for the Nexus Protect, makes me want to rock the phone naked with just a tempered glass screen protector. Since it's covered for drops, spills, & cracks for a FULL 2 years! That Aluminium one is looking so freaking sexy, but maybe I may import one from Japan so I can have that boss looking gold one since from what I understand all these Nexus 6P should all be the same.

Thin thing about Nexus protect is it is $89 up front and $79 deductible per claim with a maximum 2 claims in 2 years.... So if you already pay for insurance for your device then you might be better off sticking with what you have....

Very curious from someone who has seen them hands on. I like the graphite but it kind of looks like the chamfer edges and the area around the fingerprint sensor don't have that shine that they do on the aluminum and white. I prefer the shine than a matt finish so I think i'm going with aluminum but hoping someone who has seen these in person can give their impressions.
