Resumen del Video

Introducción

Han pasado un par de años desde que Google desveló su último teléfono inteligente de 5", el Nexus 5, y mucho ha cambiado desde entonces—la familia de Nexus ha crecido con una fableta de 6 pulgadas, una altamente aclamada tableta de 7 pulgadas y hasta un receptor de televisión con todas las funciones. Una cosa resulta constante, sin embargo—seguimos desmontando los Nexus tan rápido como los puedan hacer (en este caso, LG)

Hoy estamos viendo el Nexus 5X—sucesor del Nexus 5 que nos impresionó con su diseño modular y facilidad de acceso. ¿Obtendrá el 5X la misma calificación alta? Únete a nosotros alrededor de la mesa de desmontaje para enterarte.

  1. Antes de sacar el armazón al 5X, veamos que es lo que tiene guardado: Procesador de 64 bits con ocho núcleos 1.8 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 Cámara trasera de 12.3 MP/4K con foco automático asistido por láser y una cámara frontal de 5 MP.

    • Cámara trasera de 12.3 MP/4K con foco automático asistido por láser y una cámara frontal de 5 MP.

    • 2 GB LPDDR3 RAM con 16 GB o 32 GB almacenamiento interno.

    • IPS LCD de 5.2 pulgadas completamente HD de 1920 x 1080 con 423 ppi

    • Puerto USB tipo C con soporte para carga rápida

    • Escáner de huella digital Nexus Imprint

    • Android 6.0 Marshmallow

    Love the Back to The Future easter eggs through the teardown!

    Honam1021 - Contestar

    I am considering putting in a thin metallic plate between the battery and back cover, so I can use it with one of those vent mount magnetic holders. I tried removing the back, but a couldn't do it without worrying about breaking it. Can you show more details on how to remove the back please?

  2. Great Scott! La última oferta de Google incluye aun puerto de carga USB-C reversible junto a la toma de auriculares. Sin embargo, a pesar de su estilo nuevo y elegante, este puerto USB-C sólo soporta velocidades de transferencia USB 2.0— exactamente como el OnePlus 2.¡Qué decepción! Los que no es una decepción es el aumento de la velocidad de carga (5V/3A) que proporciona el puerto USB-C.

    • El indicador de notificación RGB LED está escondido por debajo de la rejilla del altavoz inferior y hace una grilla de notificación de 3x3. Es una pena que no se mueva.

    • La parte trasera del Nexus 5X alberga el totalmente nuevo lector de huella digital Nexus Imprint, cámara de 12.3 MP, flash doble y un telémetro láser.

  3. Como su hermano mayor, el 5X usa clips para sujetar la caja trasera al resto del teléfono. Las similitudes terminan ahí, ya que las tiras adhesivas que se encuentran en la caja trasera del Nexus 5 no se pueden encontrar en ninguna parte del Nexus 5X

  4. ¡Eso no estuvo tan mal! Las cosas van mejorando para el 5X al avistar por primera vez el interior del teléfono. Las antenas de Wi-Fi, MIMO y GPS todavía residen en la caja trasera, junto a la antena NFC que anteriormente vivía sola en el panel de control. Desafortunadamente, esas etiquetas súper convenientes del Nexus 5 se han transformado en códigos crípticos. Por suerte, esta etiqueta adhesiva en la parte interior del panel trasero tiene todo lo esencial: IMEI, país de origen y el número de modelo: LG-H790.

    • Nuestro ánimo mejoró cuando espiamos la batería de 2700 mAh a simple vista—es difícil encontrar una batería removible en esta época.

    • Pero... no fue así. El conector de la batería está guardada debajo del marco medio, y está totalmente inaccesible por ahora.

    Any idea if the camera lens cover is the same as another LG model? Mine's shattered already somehow (it wasn't dropped and has a case) and Google/LG aren't covering it under warranty (= paid repair)

    Matt DeVillier - Contestar

    Did you find out where you can buy the camera lens cover? My phone's Camera Lens cover and fingerprint scanner both are damaged. Can't find the parts anywhere.

    Shash Tel -

    Is the antenna combo actually behind the gray patch, or closer to the top where the contacts are? Where's the cellular antenna?

    Can you add a better image of the speaker ?

    Because some review said that the sound seems to go out by the back of the phone and not the front.

    Alex Andre - Contestar

    Also - Are the dedicated front-facing speaker (bottom) and the speaker used for phone calls (top) the same component? And, if so, do processor limitations prohibit this being a dual-front-facing speaker situation?

    Mike Swanson -

    It looks like the glass, digitizer, frame/bezel (and... is that a heatsink) are one component. If you need to replace the glass, as you said the digitizer as well, but that picture looks like the frame/bezel is also part of the digitizer. Is that correct?

    Sam Donham - Contestar

    I just disassembled mine to try to replace the screen/digitizer, unfortunately it seems you're correct, I could not figure out how to separate the front housing from the screen/digitizer. I found a spare screen/digitizer assembly from etradesupply.com, but they did not sell a front housing, so I assumed you didn't need it. Maybe you could separate with a heat gun and a lot of tinkering. Because I cannot find a replacement front housing to go with the screen/digitizer assembly.

    Daniel Berenbaum -

    So I took mine to a local shop because I don't have a heat gun and adhesives. As I expected, you ARE able to separate the screen/digitizer from the front housing, but it is much more complex than the rest of the disassembly.

    Daniel Berenbaum - Contestar

    What did it cost for the repair? I don't know if any place around my area does them.

    Paul Barrette -

    After 2yrs, processor below the RAM is causing it to heatup & bootloop. It would be great if iFixit teardown videos take this onto account on future teardowns & speak of it. So that the manufacturers would make a better design decisions. Great phone which ended up badly due to that bad design. Am working on finding a suitable 4Gb which i could replace the samsung RAM & bring it back to life. It would be great if anyone can help in suggesting a 4Gb RAM chip that can fit that socket.

    How difficult is it to replace the fingerprint scanner? Mine stopped working and disappeared from the security settings menu. If I replace it, should the problem be solved? May it be the motherboard itself?

    I presume the cylindrical object above the SIM tray assembly is the vibration motor? Any idea if this is the cause of a rattling noise reported by some users?

    Homunculus - Contestar

    They claim 4 hours of use after 10 minutes of charging? That's certainly not the case, and appears to be a ridiculous claim.

    Thanks for the heads up Vishnu. We've updated the teardown accordingly.

    Evan Noronha -

    This might be a stupid question, but how do they manage without OIS?

    Body Double -

    Actually, EIS can be enabled through a build.prop edit, I have 5x, and in my camera there is an option for video stabilization. So it seems that the hardware is capable but Google removed the option from the software for some reason.

the back cover looks like is had space for a wireless charge pad but as the 6p is metal and could not have wireless charging they wimped out.

brian whittle - Contestar

agreed, I'd love to know what that light grey area is on the inside of the back cover.

Oliver Hamilton -

I'm sure the NFC antenna is in there

Jonathan Mayer -

Where is the touch screen controller?

CapTouch - Contestar

Does the Nexus 5x battery size is the same as Nexus 5 2013 battery size? I'm hoping that the 5x's battery can be put inside N5 2013.

Yonathan Winata - Contestar

The Nexus 5X battery is 2700 mA, which is 500 more than the nexus 5's 2300 mA battery. I don't think the batteries are interchangeable.

Muthukumaran N M -

Would it be possible to add an aftermarket wireless QI charging sticker for this one like the LG G4?

Ben Bosch - Contestar

I hope so, this is a deal breaker for me. I'm not 'upgrading' from the N5 if the new devices can't do something the previous one could.

Oliver Hamilton -

I was holding out hopes since it's an LG made device, but looking at the pictures I don't see any pins to attach an aftermarket pad.

can the Toshiba 16 GB eMMC 5.0 Flash Memory be replaced by say a 64GB or 128GB if one could purchase them from Toshiba?

stewartrales - Contestar

Please give me the dimensions of Nexus 5x battery, i'm thinking about SWAP to Nexus 5 2013

kutkovoy - Contestar

If they had moved the USB and audio jack to the top there would have been room for a monster battery.

brian whittle - Contestar

Audio jacks belong on the bottom. USB could make sense on the top, but this would still be weird. But no audio jack should *ever* be on the top.

This is probably my favorite change from the Nexus 5.

isantop -

Anyone know USB C in N5X or N6P support OTG + charge in same time? With any usb hub or adapter USB C to others port (multiple adapter with HDMI, USB, usb C for charging...).

Maybe it's must be support in kernel, but is HW able it?

Petr Matula - Contestar

Yes.. you can buy otg cable from Amazon.com it should be 3.0 and USB 3.0 male-male cable.. and you can charge your phone using OTG

Hi, does anybody know where the water sensor is? My 5x seems to think that I am contantly plug-ins and unplugging my earphones while they are actually unplugged. This renders phone useless. Repair service claims proof of corrosion around jack and that motherboard needs to be replaced. Device was never droppen in water or otherwise noticably exposed to water. What of a single droplet would-be have enterde thru jack?

I have a Nexus 5x on Verizon and since doing a screen/digitizer/mid frame replacement I now have terrible cellular service. I do get service, it's just really bad now. Any ideas on what I may have done or what I can do to fix the problem?

I did slightly dent the metal case the houses the Qualcomm QCA6174 802.11ac Wi-Fi 2x2 MIMO Combo SoC, but that shouldn't have affected cellular LTE, right?

Steve Bachmeier - Contestar

Hi Steve,

I have the same problem after replacing the lcd and frame. Works in strong coverage areas but not on light coverage (where it was working even with broken screen). Did you get a solution?

Thanks

ross goodwin -

@steveb My screen broke last week so I replaced it with a screen on frame part. Everything seems to be functioning properly except my cell reception is now spotty... If I restart the phone it will get reception and drop out again.... Were you ever able to find a solution for your problem?

Brock -

Is it possible for the phone to leak a liquid or gel from the laser auto focus?

Damian Dugdale - Contestar

Great tear down, especially the colorcoded parts. Although it is really nice it does not help me further with my question. Does anybody know the exact locations of the antenna's? After some succesful repairs I am afraid this time with my Nexus 5 x I have overseen something. I have an issue now with my gsm antenna after replacing screen with frame. All other functions work properly so mainly I am interested in the gsm antenna but bonus points for who knows them all :). I think many will be helped with this.

Can not find it anywhere else either and the information i see here is:

1. The Wi-Fi, MIMO, and GPS antennae still reside on the rear case, along with the NFC antenna which formerly lived on its own control board

2. The lower half contains a few antennas and the phone's front-facing speaker.

Much appreciated !

Rob

Thundercat - Contestar

are you able to fix the antenna problem? I get "No service" problem frequently and i believe it could be antenna related. Please let me know .

ravi -

I also get the no service problem and can't figure out why

Ethan Berkowitz -

My 5x also has poor reception, often no service indoors, etc. In my case I sent it for service, but apparently it is water damaged and they won't fix anything. (I've seen some pictures and it certainly looks a bit dirty inside... I bought this phone used so I don't know its history).

Anyway; when I get it back from service, I'll take it apart myself, clean it, put i back together, and hope for the best.  So if anybody has some good ideas about the antenna or other things that might affect the reception, I'm interested too!

erik -

Hi,

I have the same problem after replacing the lcd and frame. Works in strong coverage areas but not on light coverage (where it was working even with broken screen). Did you get a solution?

Thanks

ross goodwin -

Follow up to my previous reply: Cleaning didn't help unfortunately .

My phone had some water damage/stains around the USB-port and the little label on the midframe had turned pink indicating water had been there too. But the phone certainly looks just fine.  There must be something very subtle that severely affects reception ... (I did not attempt to remove the little covers over the chips so I don't know how it looks there)

erik -

@thundercat I am interested if you ever found a solution. I have had my Nexus 5X for 1.5 years now and in my area have rarely had issues with cell reception. My screen broke last week so I replaced it with a screen on frame part. I was very careful taking it apart, transferring over all of the components and reassembling. Everything seems to be functioning properly except my cell reception is now spotty... If I restart the phone it will get reception and drop out again.

Brock -

UPDATE: I figured out that I had a bad screen on frame part. It seems like the tape and grounding contacts were not the same material as the original. I ordered a 2nd screen on frame replacement part and installed it. Phone worked like new.... First part I ordered was from a random retailer on ebay... Lesson learned: buy from a reputable part retailer.

Brock -

@thundercat I have the exact same questions as you. I dropped my phone quite hard and now my issue is 'no service'. So no phone calls or mobile network.

Did you find the antenna?

Thanks

Steven -

Hi,

I used the teardown recommendations here to replace a broken screen. I bought a screen with frame from amazon. I was able to boot up the phone after replacing the screen. However, when i enable the speakers (stereo speakers) either by playing media/videos there is no sound. I tried to check if there are loose connections, on the bottom haft of the mid-frame, a screeching sound is heard if i pressed the midframe. Any ideas on how to fix this?

Best regards,

Jan

Seems like there is no dedicated sound DSP, like in the Nexus 5, to listen music with up to 60 hours battery runtime?

Hi, Possibly someone has a experience on changing the power mgmt IC PMI8994 ? We were thinking of ordering a new one and changing it without any special equipment, unsure if it’s even something that needs to have money and time wasted on it.

Could you point where are contacts or a slot of Wi-Fi antenna?

Anyone attempted an LCD/digitizer separation and refusion? I have a perfectly functional LCD with cracked glass.

I am just curious: Do you know where the gyro, the accelerometer and the barometer are?

Hey guys. I wonder if replacing the storage memory (toshiba) would be hard to do?

I can’t really see how it hold in place and if any soldering is needed to remove it to, for example, place it on another motherboard.

1) how can you replace the USB port charger? 2) if not the port itself, the entire assembly board? where can I buy that piece? Natasha
