Google Nexus 5x

I recently posted photos of my Samsung Galaxy S5, and about two weeks ago the thing decided to start going all 56k on me.

I decided it was time to upgrade to something a little bit newer and would allow me more control.  Having owned the original Google Nexus phone, I  decided to go with the Nexus 5x 32gb version in black.  I have a friend who has one and raved about it so I gave it a go.  No BS, its the fastest phone I have ever used and is only slightly smaller than its big brother the Nexus 6p, but is still slightly bigger than the GS5 I am upgrading from.  The best part of this phone? The fact you can do whatever you want.  I uninstalled everything I do not use or plan to use.  The second best part?  Locally (on device) stored finger-print reader to turn on phone and unlock at the same time.  Awesome.  

Both camera's (front/rear) are pretty good and the screen resolution is really good.

I bought a heavy duty supcase for it since it'll be on my kit at work and might get banged around.  Just remember it uses type-c usb so you'll have to swap your stuff to that.  Bright side is, they are not expensive, I bought a three pack of wires and it works really well.
