The Nexus 5X 16GB is 2.9inches (72.6mm) wide, 5.8inches (147mm) tall, and 0.31inches (7.9mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the Nexus 5X 16GB, it weighs about 4.8oz (136g). The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed.

Its features would position it somewhere between high and mid-level among currently available smartphones, but it will be rather stress-free in terms of using most apps. Most 3D games that don't burn up too much memory should be playable to a satisfying degree for the most part. 2D games should be no problem at all.
