LG Nexus 5X Battery Test Results

By 05:47 Thu, 29 Jul 2021 Comments


The LG Nexus 5X comes with Doze, the recent Android feature that promises to extdiscontinue standby time by being smart about when it lets apps run in the background. To be fair, the recent Nexus 5 will acquire the same feature after the update, but its replacement has two hardware improvements that software updates can't create up for.

The first is the bigger battery – 2,700mAh – and the second is the newer chipset, Snapdragon 808, built on a 20nm process instead of the 28nm process used for the Snapdragon 800.

The recent Nexus 5X significantly improves the talk time over its predecessor and indeed posts and above average of 17 hours. We've seen much better performance, the Moto X Style (S808, 3,000mAh) went over 22 hours, and worse – the LG G4 (S808, 3,000mAh) couldn’t quite create it to 17 hours.

It's the video playback time that doesn’t live up to the common performance of a modern smartphone. At six and a half hours, even the LG G4 and Moto X Style with their sizeable screens outlast the Nexus 5X. Even the recent HTC One A9 with a tiny 2,150mAh battery and less capable chipset (28nm) went on for 8 hours and 30 minutes.

With two fine results and one disappointment, plus the recent Doze feature, the endurance rating works out to 60 hours. Of the competitors mentioned above, only the Xperia Z5 (73h) and Moto X Style (63h) last longer.




The LG Nexus 5X is fine for about two and a half days of moderate use, but with heavy utilize it will acquire you to the discontinue of the second day. The powerful charger that comes with it – 5V @ 3A or 15W – is quick to top up the battery.

You can even sneak in half an hour of charging and it will create a remarkable impact. To charge at the office you will need a Universal Serial Bus (USB) Type-C cable and those are fairly rare. And you can pack up your wireless charger from the Nexus 5, the 5X doesn’t support it.
