    Since it's built into Lollipop, I have no doubts.

    My Moto X Pure Edition supported it out of the box.

    My biggest question about the 5x and 6p for Verizon isnt whether or not the phone supports their radio bands, but if it supports ALL of them. I have done a bit of browsing on the supported frequencies vs the frequencies verizon uses and to me it looked like one of verizon's lower frequency bands is ommited from the supported lists on the new Nexi. Maybe there was some misinformation at play, or whether or not that is a big deal is to be seen, but I would hate to put money down on a new nexus, go through the painstaking crap that is going to be to put the phone on their network only to lack connectivity in some certain areas that lower frequency band is being used.

    What band are you specifically talking about?

    Sorry. I had to look again. I believe it's the CDMA 800 band.


    EDIT: Here are my sources:

    It looks like my Google-foo failed me. It seems all frequencies used by verizon currently are indeed supported.

    They show all their bands in the store.

    6P - https://store.google.com/product/nexus_6p
    5X - https://store.google.com/product/nexus_5x

    Scroll down near the bottom and click "Full feature and specs". From there you can go to the Network section and see it all .

    Sadly the more important question is will Verizon "let" it work on Verizon's network. Having seen Verizon from both sides it would not surprise me if they prevent it. I await actual user confirmation before I get excited.

    I'll let you know. I will activate my 5X on VZW. If it's a problem, I'll post the details.

    I'm pretty confident it'll work on Verizon. They seem to be taking a different tack as a company. See this article http://www.engadget.com/2015/08/25/v...our-own-phone/ . My brother hasn't had any problems with his Moto X PE on VZW.

    Also one of the Google presenters last week did say it would work on all major US networks. Pretty sure they wouldn't just make that up without having first confirmed it with those major networks.

    Does anyone know if the DROID Maxx uses a nano Sim? Currently have this phone on Verizon. Just wondering if I got the 5x I would just take out the sim from my Droid and pop into the 5x. Thanks!

    Just called and had my Nexus 5x activated , they view the device as the LG-H790. My G4 had a micro sim and I hacked it up trying to cut it down to fit in the 5x. They sent me a sim free of charge. I guess they do recognize and support the phone?

    I would be wary of saying VZW "supports" the phone.
