    Nexus is quite a lot cheaper in US than here. I would love to have it but 550 for it is too much, and that is for 32GB.
    That phone is just too big for me or else I would have gone out and got one already. And this is from a guy who used a Xperia Z Ultra for a while and that was a very, very, very big phone.

    It is certainly worth 450 but Nexus 5X is now 300 for 32GB so that is also very nice deal :)
    The comparable dealer is offering that phone this week was for about $270. Right now, I can get a very good condition Robin for $255... that I can argue is actually a better buy overall than the Nexus, except for the fact that Google May support the Nexus a bit better in the long run. But if you were to compare both phones side by side, I think the Robin is a better buy.

    Given good conditions, the Maxx does OK...

    We don't have Nextbit Robin here at all so for 300 Nexus 5X is the best bet.

    Understood. Still, I like the prices of the LG G5. I'll keep an eye on it to see if it gets to a price that really might interest me.

    Dropped my phone while exiting the car, it fell on the rocks and now I have a few visible scratches. Dakn it. They really annoy me when I swipe a finger across them.

    That whole idea of apps getting removed from the device if not used doesn't appeal to me. I want to be the one to decide what apps are on my device, not the device OEM.

    It's more so that they hang out into the cloud and can be retrieved after, that's their angle. My thing is they could have just doubled the internal storage and give the users a bit more control over cloud sync i would have bought one instantly.

    But i do get where you're coming from. I wish if Google (and the OEMs) let me uninstall their apps instead of disabling them...

    Makes sense. That's why on a hardware level I really like the XL, but on the software level this thing just keeps having me scratch my head.

    I think I'd lean toward the Oculus Rift for one main reason. John Carmack is on their development team.
