Nexus 5X vs Nexus 5: Changes to Look for

Google has finally announced the new set of Nexus handsets following so many days of speculation.
The Nexus 5X is set to replace the two-year old champion Nexus 5.
Here we are looking at how the Nexus 5X compares to the Nexus 5. We have crunched through the numbers and the specs to see what the differences are and what's changed over the last couple of years. Read on to find out.

The first and as usual the mehhh... kinda change is that Nexus 5X arrives with a 5.2-inch display sporting a Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, which delivers a pixel density of 424ppi.
This means the display on the Nexus 5X will be just a tad bigger than the 4.95-inch Nexus 5 but as the resolution is the same, the older device will present crisper images thanks to a higher pixel density of 445ppi.

Now this is the big change we all were looking forward to, the Nexus 5X has been made by LG, following in the footsteps of the Nexus 5. The new device has a slightly more interesting design though, with a raised rear camera lens, as well as a rear fingerprint sensor called the Nexus Imprint. The camera lens has also moved from the top left hand corner where it was on the Nexus 5, to the top middle on the Nexus 5X.

Nexu5x Dimensions: The Nexus 5X measures 147 x 72.6mm with a thickness of 7.9mm at its slimmest. The Nexus 5 on the other hand measures 137.8 x 69.2 x 8.59mm so the newer device is larger overall, but a little slimmer.

The Nexus 5 comes in five colours in total, while the Nexus 5X is only available in three. White, black and a shade of blue, although not the same, are included for both devices.

The Nexus 5X comes with the hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chipset, Adreno 418 graphics and 2GB of RAM. It also has a 2700mAh battery capacity and 16GB and 32GB models will be available.
The Nexus 5 on the other hand features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, Adreno 330 graphics and 2GB of RAM, so there should certainly be an improvement in terms of performance. The storage is the same at 16GB and 32GB models, but the battery is bigger on the 5X with the 5 offering 2300mAh.
Neither the 5X or the 5 offer microSD support.

The Nexus 5X will bring with itself the latest version of Android software - 6.0 Marshmallow. The Nexus 5 currently offers Android Lollipop but it will be one of the first devices to get the upgrade to Marshmallow so you'll eventually get the same user experience on both devices once the upgrade starts rolling.
Google announced that the older Nexus devices including the 6 will receive the update in the beginning of October.

The Nexus 5X comes with a 12.3-megapixel rear camera with a dual-LED flash, f/2.0 aperture and IR laser-assisted autofocus. The front camera is  5-megapixels.
The Nexus 5 by comparison features an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 1.3-megapixel front camera, so both will be significantly better on the 5X.
The Nexus 5X will also have larger pixels on its rear camera sensor than before, which is claimed will read more light and therefore perform better in low light situations.

See comparison -> Nexus 5x v/s Nexus 5

It must be remembered that the Nexus 5 has been around for a couple years so it will come as no surprise that the rumoured specs for the Nexus 5X trump it in almost every way.
Except for being slightly larger in terms of footprint, the Nexus 5X has a bigger display, a faster processor, more RAM, a bigger battery capacity, better cameras and it will come with the latest software from the box. It also has the addition of the Nexus fingerprint sensor.
The Nexus 5 was a great device when it first launched but based on the specs, the Nexus 5X is the clear winner between these two in terms of the numbers, despite the older device offering the sharper display.

Bro-Code by Barney Stinson

The Bro Code is a living document which such is not yet publicly available in an unabridged volume. The original document is housed in a non-disclosed location, two stories beneath sea level in a vacuum-sealed bulletproof chamber. Re-printed here is a sampling of some of her articles. Learn. Live. Enjoy.

Bros before hoes. I cannot stress this enough. Always remember, girlfriends come and go, but your boys are always there. Breaking this rule is to commit the cardinal sin against Team Testosterone.

Never drink the last beer, unless you've been granted specific permission that it's OK

If a girl falls into the following criteria, she is off limits forever until the end of time:
A. Was an ex-girlfriend
B. Your friend specifically told you he wanted her
C. Is your buddy's sister (However, if it's your buddy's cousin, well she's up for grabs, and you're welcome to rub it in his face for years to come)

Never diss a guy whose team just lost a crushing game. Just leave it alone, it's kinder to pick on them for a dead relative

You must never own a cat

If you get 2 tickets to the big game/gig/event, the priority list for granting the second ticket is as follows:
1. Your best friends (in order of how long you've known them)
2. Your acquaintances
3. Your co-workers
4. The mailman
5. The UPS guy
7. John Kerry

1,485,726. Your girlfriend

You are allowed to enjoy exactly one chick TV show, and one chick flick. You may have no more. And if you like Grease, well, we're already too late

Birthday and Christmas presents for your guy friends are optional. Beer always makes a great gift

If you go the bar with your buddies, you must buy a round of drinks at least once

There are no mercy rules when playing someone in Madden, Hoops, Street Hockey, Bare-fisted boxing, etc.

If you owe someone money, pay them back as soon as humanly possible—unless it's a gambling debt, which must be paid immediately

Standard shotgun rules are as follows:
A. Shotgun may only be called within full sight of the car
B. Shotgun must be called outside
C. Shotgun calls last approximately ten minutes
D. Shotgun never carries over to a second ride

NO PDA (Public Displays of Affection), even if John Legend says they just don't care. I mean, congratulations, another girl can stand the sight of you. You don't need to wear her like a fucking trophy

It's alright to cheat at any game where money isn't involved. In certain circumstances, relationships may be classified as "games"

Don't tell other guys elaborate stories about your weightlifting exercise routine. No one cares

Never openly question another guy's sports wisdom, unless said information specifically pertains to your favorite team.

When out with the guys, never accept a call from your girlfriend—unless she's dying or trapped under a burning fuel truck, and if that's the case, make it quick

Always allow a buffer zone at urinals and on couches

Never share a bed with a guy, unless there's no way around it

Bros before Hoes. I know, I already used it. I can't stress it enough, though. It is absolutely infuriating how many of my guy friends have become insufferable dicks since they've gone out with someone

Bros will not be assumed to be exclusive unless each has explicitly granted the other exclusive Bro rights. If a Bro is not exclusive then a Bro may have more than one Bro. However, upon becoming exclusive, said Bro must break any Bro ties with all other Bros.

A bro will, in a timely manner, alert his bro to the existence of a girl fight

If a Bro catches another Bro in plagiarism - albeit awesome plagiarism - a Bro shall be required to ask the Bro to cite his source.

Bros cannot make eye-contact during a Devil's Threeway (2 dudes)

If one Bro calls another Bro a douche then said naming must be confirmed by another Bro even if the third Bro is a chick. This naming only requires a "second" by any Bro and does not require a majority vote by all Bros involved.

Love thy neigh-bro

The bro with the better paying job is required to buy the first round. If the other bro is temporarily out of money or left his wallet at home drinks can be lended yet in the long run these drinks must be repaid, later that night by wingman services or any other act of entertainment or at the next gathering.

A Bro will, whenever possible, provide his Bro with protection

A Bro shall never reveal the score of a sporting event to another Bro until that Bro has thrice confirmed it’s cool.

A Bro may not speculate on the expected Bro / chick ratio of a party or venue without first disclosing the present-time observed ratio.

If a Bro, for whatever reason, becomes aware of another Bro’s girlfriend’s birthday and / or anniversary date, he shall endeavor to make that information available to his Bro, regardless whether he thinks his Bro already knows

One Bro makes a solo chick attack
A second Bro provides a crutch
A third Bro rounds out the pack
But a fourth Bro is one too much

Should a Bro be near to closing with a girl, his Bro shall do anything within his means to ensure the desired outcome, up to and including the seduction of said girl’s wildly unattractive cousin / friend / mother.

A Bro shall honor his father and mother.

In the event that two Bros acquire the same target, the Bro with the longer dry spell has dibs. Should the dry spells be of equal length, a game of discreet roshambo shall determine the outcome.

In a scenario in which two or more Bros are engaged in entertainment of the adult variety, one Bro is forbidden from intentionally or unintentionally touching another Bro in ANY capacity, including but not limited to; the high five, the fist bump, or the congratulatory gluteal pat. Winking is also kind of a no-no.

A Bro much provide his bro with a ticket to an event if said event involves the second Bro’s favorite sports team in a playoff scenario

A Bro must always reciprocate a round of drink(s) among Bros with the proviso that no existing wager supersedes this purchase and exchange of spirits.

If a Bro suffers pain from a permanent dissolution of a relationship with a lady friend, a Bro shall offer nothing more than a “that sucks, man” and copious quantities of beer

Should a Bro pick up a guitar at a party and commence playing, another Bro shall point out that he is a tool

If a Bro is on a hot streak, another Bro will do everything possibly to ensure its longevity, even if that includes jeopardizing his own records, the missing of work, or temporarily immigrating to a foreign country.

A Bro never cries

When in a slap bet thy bro must always obey the rules of the slap bet. If caught cheating in a slap bet the selected slap bet coordinator must rule the consequences of how many more slaps must be given to thy cheater

A Bro shall at all times say 'Yes'

When one bro engages a fellow bro in a political debate, said debate shall remain civil and in good spirits. Should said debate become an argument, the bro who initiated the "argument" shall slap himself and then down two Miller Chills. This bro will then, in the proceeding Gubernatorial, Congressional, or Presidential election, vote for the candidate of his fellow Bro's choosing

A Bro may never pursue the mom of another Bro. Be it here resolved that at no point is it permissible for one Bro to engage in carnal delicacies with another Bro's mother. It is, however, allowed and encouraged for one Bro to graphically suggest to a Bro the athletic feats, animalia, and/or machinery utilized during a fictional encounter with his mom. Should a Bro discover his Bro is in fact adopted, he is free to pursue his Bro's adoptive mother, but only after first corroborating non-biological parentage through notarized birth certificates, hospital records, or comparative deoxyribonucleic acid gel electrophoresis, whichever is easiest. Since the adopted Bro cannot legitimately claim to have shared a canal with his Bro, ARTICLE 89 expressly prohibits the adopted Bro from invoking the Sloppy Second clause in any related filings with the International Court of Bros. Though the mom of a Bro is always off limits, the step-mom of a Bro is allowed if she initiates it and/or is wearing at least one article of leopard print clothing. If she looks good in it.

Motivational Speech about The DREAM

I dont know what the dream is that you have
I dont care how disappointing it may have been as you have been working towards that dream.
But that dream that you're holding in your mind
That is possible.
Some of you already know
That it is hard.
It's not easy.
It's hard changing your life.
Then in the process of working on your dreams
You are going to incur and incur a lot of disappointment,
A lot of failure.
A lot of pain.
The moment when you're going to doubt yourself.
I say God why, why does this happening to me?
I'm just trying to take care of my children and my mother
I'm not trying to steal or rob from anybody.
How is this had to happen to me
For those of you who had experience some hardships
Don't give up on your dream
There are rough times are going of to come, but they have not come to stay!. They have come to pass
Greatness, is not this ,wonderful, esoteric, illusive god like featuring them
Only the special among us are, will ever take,
Ya know, it's something that truly exist in all of us
It's very important for you to believe, that you are the ONE
Most people, they raise a family, they earn a living and then they die.
They stop growing, they stop working on themselves, they stop stretching, they stop pushing themselves
That are lot people like to complain, but they don't wanna do anything about their situation
And most people don't on work on their dream. Why??
One is because of FEAR. The fear of failure. What if things don't workout
And the fear of success. "What if they do and i can't handle it"
These are not risk takers
You spent so much time with other people, you spent so much time trying to get people to like you,
You know other people more then you know yourself
You study them, you know about them, you wanna hangout like them, you wanna be just be like them
And you know what??
You invested so much time on them. You don't know who you are!
I challenge you to spent time by yourselves.
It's necessary, that you get the losers out of your life if you want to live you DREAM
But people who running toward their dream,life has a special kind of meaning..
"When you become the 'right person', what you do is start to separating yourselves from others people"
You began to have a certain uniqueness
As long as you following another others, as long as you being a "copycat"
You will never ever be the best "copycat" in the world
But you will be the best you could be
I'm challenging you to find you value
That everybody won't see it, that everybody wont join you, that everybody wont have the vision.
It's necessary to know that
That you are uncommon breed
It's necessary that you aligned yourself with people and attract people into your business
Who are hungry!
People who are unstoppable and unreasonable
People who are refusing to live life just as it is, and who want more!!
The people that are living their dream are partying WINNERS!! to attach themself too
The people that are living their dream, are the people that know that
If it is gonna happen its up to them!
If you wanna be more successful
If you wanna have and do something you never done before
Number 2 i'm asking to invest in you
Someone opinion of you!
Does not have to become your reality
That you don't have go through life being a victim
And even though you face disappointment, you have to know within yourself
That I can do this! Even if no one else see's it for me, I must see it for myself
"This is what I believe and, I'm willing die for it, period"
No matter how bad it is, or how bad it gets
I'm going to make it!
I wanna represent an Idea. I wanna represent Possibility
As some of you right now, you wanna be, you know im saying, you wanna go to next level
I wanna council, yo I wanna be engineer, I wanna be a doctor." Listen to me
You can't go to that level.
You can't get to that level economically where you wanna be until you start investing in your mind
You're not reading books
I'm challenging your all to go conference (library)
I dare you invest high!
I dare you to be alone!
I dare you spent hours getting to know yourself!
When you become who you are, when you become the person that you created to be
Designed to be who you were designed to be
When you become individual,
What you do is, you take yourself and you start separating yourself from others
I challenge you to get a place where people don't like you or even don't bother you no more.
Why? coz you not concerned what make them happy!
Because you're trying to blow up, you're trying to get to the next level
I need you to invest in your mind.
If you still talk about your dream.
If you still talk about your goal.
Which of you not done anything
Just take the first step!
That you can make your parents proud
You can make your school proud
You can touch millions of people life's and the world would never be the same again!
Because you came this way
Don't let nobody steal your dream!
Have we face a rejections and a "NO" and we have a meeting and no one shows up
Or somebody say "You can count on me" and they don't come through
What if we have that kind of attitudes that cause reposes. Nobody believes in you. You lose again and again and again!. The light are cut off
But you're still looking at your dream, reviewing it everyday! say it yourself, it's not over!
Until I WIN!!
