Android 6.0 Marshmallow

The Android operating system integrates heavily with Google's services. Using the card-based Google Now, Android quickly surfaces information for you whenever you need it, powered by the same Knowledge Engine that runs Google's web search. It's a personalized and customizable OS, allowing you to add your favorite apps or widgets to your homescreen. You can even download new themes using the Google Play Store, which offers access to more than one million apps, games, books, music, movies, and more. Android 6.0 Marshmallow overhauls permissions, allowing you to have finer control over what your applications have access to. It also marks the debut of Now on Tap, a context-sensitive update to Google Now that checks your current screen for keywords and then searches for them automatically. Other performance and security enhancements are included as well.

Powerful Dual Cameras

The Nexus 5X's enhanced camera array excels in low-light conditions. The rear lens's larger 1.55μm pixels capture more light in all conditions to produce vivid details and sharp images.

Nexus Imprint

Built into the back of your device to accommodate the way you hold it, the Nexus Imprint fingerprint reader will turn on your screen with one touch, unlock your apps quickly, and let you breeze through checkout lines with Android Pay support.

USB Type-C

The USB Type-C charger is reversible, which means no more guessing which way is up. It also enables fast charging—you get almost four hours of use after only ten minutes of charging.

question

Does this phone work with Sprint network ?
Asked by: Anonymous
While it is certainly compatible, it may not actually be allowed onto the network. I am still working through it but the Sprint computers report the phone as not compatible. Apparently it was not originally registered with the Sprint database by LG so it is not allowed. It seems that I will have to get LG together with the original purchaser (BH? someone they bought it from?) as well as Sprint to get this cleared up. Trying, but not optimistic.
