    Just wondering what you guys think is the better value for the money. I am looking for a new phone and have been looking at the $350 32gb 2014 Nexus 6 and the upcoming Nexus 5x for the $379 16gb version. I am leaning toward the 5x but the lack of storage is bothering me. Tell me what you guys think!

    For me, the Nexus 6P is out of the question as it's too large. I like a smaller phone. My options are pretty limited for a phone that runs virtually stock Android, which is what I like. I was thinking about getting the new Moto G, but it wont play some of the higher end games very well that I like to play. So, I am thinking of getting the 32 gig 5x. It ticks all the boxes for me. Although I think that 32 gig 6p is a better value for the money, but I just don't like a phone that large.

    Keep in mind that the 6p is slightly bigger than the iphone 6 plus

    The Nexus 5 reminded me of why I use Android phones to begin with. I remember taking it out of the box for the first time, on launch day, and thinking this was one of the best software experiences I'd ever had on a smartphone. As time went on the shortcomings became more apparent, but everything else was so accommodating that I didn't care. The battery life started to dwindle and the camera never got much better. I still have one to this day, which is easily the longest I've ever held onto a phone before. It's been my test device for both Lollipop and Marshmallow Dev previews. It's still fast. It's a phone I'd use as a daily driver, but the camera and the battery just don't hold up well (although the M Preview has made the battery better.)

    So if you told me I could have that device refreshed with a more powerful and efficient CPU, a bigger battery, a final build of Marshmallow, fast charging, a fingerprint sensor, and what looks to be a vastly improved camera, I'd absolutely want in. No phone is going to be perfect, but for me, the Nexus 5 back in 2013 came close. This new one appears to be inching even closer.

    I didn't say it wasn't. I guess our definitions of "slightly" are different is more of what I was pointing out.
