+Zachary Kew-Denniss won't get a 5X because he "likes big ponies". Okay Zac, okay...

Haha, I already knew that you'd have extensive information on the 820, didn't mean to doubt your knowledge.

While to some extent your point about "always waiting for the next best thing" is very true, but the 820 to 830 likely won't be as big as a leap as 808/810 -> 820.

More powerful GPU would also mean games would launch faster, look at speed comparisons between iPhone 6S vs Galaxy S6, the iPhone 6S can launch games much faster.

Looks like you can now use Google Play credit for device / accessories purchases from the Google Store. This was not the case before. You still can't use mixed payment methods though so this is unlikely to be useful unless you have enough credit to cover the entire order cost (you can't use it as a partial payment).

Hand held night shot with Auto HDR+. I am not great at taking photos, but this phone makes my photos look great.

I saw several dozen comments today about the lack of the notification LED on the 5X based on its absence from the specs, so I decided to reach out to +Dave Burke (Google's VP of Engineering) to figure this out once and for all.

Thanks to Dave, we got the full picture of what's going on here. Read on to find out.

Tl;dr: Both phones have true notification LEDs (unlike N6), but because Ambient Display is used for notifications, they aren't going to be used for actual notifications, but rather accessible to apps like Light Flow, etc.

Now go ahead and correct this misconception everywhere you can see and point them to the article.
