There are certainly a lot of points in favor of the Nexus 6P, which may convince some potential buyers to spend the extra cash to get the larger of the two Nexus phones. Not all prices are similar between countries though: going from the 32 GB model of the Nexus 5X to the 32 GB model of the Nexus 6P only costs $70 in the US, but costs €120 in Europe, so it’s worth keeping in mind that the Nexus 5X might be relatively cheaper where you live.
