The Nexus 5X was LG’s creation for Google and it was released last year, in October, with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. The Xiaomi Redmi 3s was unveiled in June, being a low-end smartphone with a giant battery.

Today we will compare these two devices and let you decide which one of them suits your needs better.



The LG Nexus 5X measures 147×72.6×7.9mm and weights 136 grams. The phone has a plastic body with a protruding circular camera in the top middle and below it there’s a fingerprint scanner.

On the other hand, the Xiaomi Redmi 3s is thicker and heavier, as it measures 139.3×69.6×8.5mm and weights 144 grams, but that’s because its body is made of metal. The edges are rounded and at the top and bottom are found two slim antenna bars, while the camera is located in the upper left corner.


The LG Nexus 5X has an IPS LCD display of 5.2-inch that supports a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels at 423 ppi. The Xiaomi Redmi 3s has a smaller IPS LCD display of 5-inch that supports a lower resolution of 1280×720 pixels at 294 ppi.

The LG Nexus 5X features a Qualcomm MSM8992 Snapdragon 808 chipset, a quad-core Cortex A53 CPU clocked at 1.4GHz and a dual-core Cortex A57 CPU clocked at 1.8GHz, an Adreno 418 graphics card and 2GB of RAM.

The Xiaomi Redmi 3s has a Qualcomm MSM8937 Snapdragon 430 chipset, an octa-core Cortex A53 CPU clocked at 1.4GHz, an Adreno 505 graphics card and 2GB of RAM.


The LG Nexus 5X has been released in two internal storage variants of 16GB and 32GB, but it doesn’t feature a microSD card slot for storage expansion. The Xiaomi Redmi 3s comes with an internal storage of only 16GB, which can be expanded up to 256GB.
