According to them, they had an "issue" that a yellow tint of the screen got worse after an update, they blamed the update for that.
How did I know? I bought a Nexus 5x a month ago and noticed it had a yellowish screen. I updated the software to the latest version and tried if it would solve the issue and it did. The "Cool Color Temparature" from the developer tools solved the yellow tint. However, I decided to request for a replacement 'cause I taught that it would bother me, knowing I had an abnormal screen.
They next day, I came back to their store for a replacement. I said it had a yellowish screen and I compared it to my previous phone as a basis. They told me that I should not compare it since they were different phones. Then they asked if I updated it, to which I said yes, they told me that they would not be able to replace it since I updated it. I told them that it was a hardware issue and software is out of the picture here. I knew that they felt that I would not bulge. They opened another box of a 5x, once it booted, I showed them the difference of the screens. They replaced the phone but not the box and accessories. They just swapped the IMEI stickers. I got a new unit without the yellowish screen. :)
If your on the replacement period, I suggest that you do not update, for them not to have leverage. I believe that on the issued receipt, that a software update voids the replacement period. In my case, it was overidden but we are not sure if they would be the case everytime. If you're beyond the replacement period, I recommend you to update. Don't listen to them. One of the main reasons that we got a Nexus phone is for timely and quick updates.

Once it's updated, you'll notice a diference, also consider setting manual brigthness (low is good), and turn off bluetooth and wifi when not in use.

i just bought a brand new unit here in the philippines and the issue that really caught my attention is how fast the battery decreases. i researched a lot about 5X before even buying it and based on the reviews, it has good battery life. but 3days after buying the phone i noticed how fast the battery reduces. i can compare it to my 3yr old iphone 4s, they almost have the same battery life. btw i am a moderate user and haven't even tried using the phone for heavy graphic games. the battery lasts for the whole day if used for average of 1 hour mobile data browsing and the remaining hours resting or have the phone do nothing at all because the cellular data itself eats up a lot like 5 mins of it loses up to 2% of my battery.
is it normal for this phone to have this performance or should i contact my seller about this?
what should i do to save more battery life?
is it safe to turn my battery saver after fully charging my phone?
Good day! i kinda need an explanation as to why my seller said that the OS should not be updated, for it can damage the unit. that bothered me for the main reason i bought this is because it is nexus plus it is the affordable version compared to 6P. i bought it here in the philippines and fyi this unit is only sold to few stores. i just need to know why. thank you!
i just bought mine here in the philippines, brand new. and i noticed how fast the battery reduces. is this normal for this unit? i can compare it to my old iphone 4s which i have been using for 3 years. they almost have the same battery life to think that that iphone is really old. i researched a lot before buying this phone and got a little disappointed with the battery performance because i was expecting more from it. can anyone give any tips for me? i am hoping to get answers from here. thanks! :)
ps i'm just a moderate user and got my phone for about 3 days now.
