It's been a decent phone for the 3+ years I had it. Until the dreaded bootloop. Just ended up getting a different replacement. 5x definitely had some nice features that I wish were in the phone I bought to replace it. I think it took a performance hit with Android 8.0 installed. Just with it couldve lasted longer.
Mine just started bootlooping today, it lasted a year and four months. I never played any games in it and i thought that it would at least last 2 years, well luckily i bought it for very little money. Now i'm getting an iPhone
Just to post comment about bootloop, my Nexus 5X got it yesterday. Next month it would be full 3 years how I own it, it was great phone, but yesterday just freezed for few seconds then restarted itself and started bootlooping. I loved kamera and that simple Android OS, but now it's time to buy something else.
nexus 5x is one phone I ever enjoyed using,But the one am using the screen got blank and could nt fix it
Last time i order nexus 5x Refurbished on Shopee. When i got nexus on hand. I feel worm on back fingerprint. Amd then i shutdown form charging.left 15 minutes. And i turn on back. Suddenly notice bootloop. And. Shutdown byself. So i try. To open and try to heatgun. So. Nothing happen. When turn on. So my nexus was dead. I want to reballing. But. I dont have tool. I check on online. The nexus got for custom emmc to 4 ram. I research. It actually. Form LG V10 emmc exchange to mexus emmc. That why how nexus got 4 ram. Dont ever buy thia device. I got 2 nexus for cheap price H791/H798. Both also dead nexus.

Bootloop ... Twice in 9 Month.... First time, my hubby fix it.... Last time, LG's warranty prounanced dead.
They'll send me a new one... 😒
Have been using it for 4 years now, to problems at all, awesome phone, not even a boot loop issue or anything. Best phone i ever had, but previously i used galaxies for many years.
Don't buy: even as a second hand phone, the risk of the phone entering a boot-loop is too great and unless it's covered under warranty it could cost a lot to replace the motherboard (which is the only certain fix)
trevmorr, 23 Nov 2018there is no fix dudehi, i think in the page of developers google, are the ota's for flash in this device Nexus 5x
search nexus 5x update on google
I've been using this phone since january, and i love it!
The things i love the most are: 1st the android vanilla, very fluid, stable and fast. 2nd, The fast charging capabilities. Amazing to see my phone full charged in around an hour. And 3rd his amazing camera. Just very crisp and detailed for the price (i've paid like $100 u$s).
Lately i have been a little worried for the known hardware issues of this model. I was wondering if i should sell it regardless of my excitement for this phone while is still covered with warranty. And if i should. Then what is the logical upgrade?. I was considering the Xiaomi Mi A1 but im not very convinced about the camera. Do you guys have any recommendation?
