After looking at these sample tests, what did you think of them? We thought that they were a huge upgrade over their predecessors, although we would have been much happier to see the 4K video recording feature on Nexus 5X as well. Sadly, it was not to be and if you want to experience UHD video recording sessions, then you are going to have to upgrade to Nexus 6P, which retails for $499.99, while its smaller screen counterpart costs $379.99.
