I bought my 5X in 2016 April. For 2 - 3 months, it has been crashing and restarting. Today it crashed, and restarted as usual, and then the system was start updating. Then the phone crashed again. Now it would not start. I assume it is an issue with the charging IC and that LG Nexus 5X is not very reliable in hardware department.
This phone is overall 7/10. But failed to sustain updates after 7.0 and its motherboard got crashed. i recommend not to buy this phone.
I have problem,this phone is overhit all the time. I think no one can fixed it.
It was good phone but in month of march this year 2017, while i was on call suddenly phone shut down, been to LG they ask for bill and orignal material which i got, after 15 days i got a call lady said we are not able to fix it up we are not shure its software problem or mother bord, if you want this phone in working condition submit 10 thousand rs. will try to work, what the hell, any one who can fix my phone in INDIA ?
Unable to load the camera after an update. Also unable to use the front camera through apps like WhatsApp.
To solve bootloop, I've flash with the stock firmware manualy...
Download the last firmware for "bullhead" for Nexus 5X : 7.1.2 (N2G47W, Jun 2017)
In fastboost mode on the phone ( google search to know howto do this ), then connect usb to the computer.
Unzip the firmware.
Launch the "flash-all.bat" - (that's all).
It need some apps (fastboot.exe...) can be found there:
Unzip in the same folder and rerun "flash-all.bat".
After the flash, the phone reboot, it's ok.

My phone broke down and gets stuck in a boot loop after software update. It does not seem to stand heat. Also my old google product also ended up in boot loop.
It does not seem like LG is yet up to deliver reliable mobile products.
What device will be better. Last phone(during last 2 years) was Nexus 5, but now I'm testing Xiaomi Mi5s, nice phone, but I still prefer pure stock Android. Is it worth to buy Nexus 5x now?
I own Nexus 5X, I already charged full. I used it and dropped it, when I returned to use my phone It was switched off, up till this moment I send this report. I need it working, i need answers . respond

I h... moreHave a chance to get this again but already had 3 . I do like Nexus and this model but if recent updates have not solved anything then it must be hardware, loved my LG Nexus 4 and 5 but this has given me so much agro.
Rumours LG building Pixel 2 lets hope like Nexus 5.
