Ting Unboxing and a giveaway: Nexus 5X

 Nexus 5X – Ting shop 

The Nexus 5X is an affordable flagship smartphone co-developed by LG and Google to promote Android’s brand new operating system, 6.0 Marshmallow. It’s also the latest unboxing (and giveaway) we’re hosting on the Ting YouTube channel.

The Nexus 5X hits all of the requirements of a top-notch smartphone on the market today, addressing the drawbacks of the Nexus 5 and implementing some valuable features. The only time you might think otherwise is when you look at the price tag.

A stunning camera (even in low light settings) and 4K video recording are an awesome addition to the 5X. Battery life is no longer a chink in the armor of the Nexus line, either. You’ll find that a full day of use is no sweat for the 5X – we made it close to two in our testing.

The super fast fingerprint sensor is our favorite feature of the 5X. Positioned directly below the camera where your index finger naturally lands, there’s absolutely no effort involved in unlocking your device. Just hold your phone and you’re good to go!

The Nexus 5X runs stock Android 6.0 Marshmallow, giving you access to the latest Android tools (like Now on Tap and Doze) and Android updates the moment they’re released.

While it doesn’t sport a full metal body or glass shell, the 5X is solidly built and feels great in the hand. It’s attractive, affordable and a great match with Ting.

Like to get your hands on one? The Nexus 5X can be purchased from Google Play through our Ting shop listing.

We’re also randomly selecting a YouTube commenter to win a brand new Nexus 5X! Contest details are listed directly below.

How to enter:

  1. Subscribe to Ting on YouTube.
  2. Comment on the Nexus 5X Unboxing YouTube video (not this blog post) telling us whether you like pure, unmodified Stock Android (inside the Nexus line of devices) or prefer the way Samsung, LG and others change the Android interface.

Check out our quick unboxing, complete these two simple tasks and you’re set! Contest ends on Thursday, November 19. We’ll select the lucky winner at 4 PM ET and announce it in this blog post (and on YouTube). Congrats to our lucky winner, Ashley Y!
