Vojikik , 22 Jun 2016So you should not buy that if the seller tells you that. They are maybe correct or not but you... morei already bought the device and though i have not much noticed anything weird aside from the fact that i won't be allowed to update my OS, everything seems to run smoothly. so, i don't regret buying it in the first place. thanks for your answer btw

I just wonder why they won't allow us to do the update. i thought it would be like "jailbreaking" the iphone where updates are restricted. but i was thinking that maybe that can't happen on android. so, you're saying that updating won't do harm on my device, right? i'm a little hesitant since i just bought the phone and i'm trying my best to use it properly, but i'll consider the update maybe after a month or so just in case. thanks btw :)

They are maybe correct or not but you cannot even tell if the seller are right or wrong until you update your OS then see for your eyes.
Legolas, 21 Jun 2016They are lying to you, actually updating the phone improves its performance.oh okay. i'm just scared that something might happen if i start to update this. thanks by the way :)
I'm in doubt between nexus 5x 32gb (280Â€) and p9 lite 3Gb ram (215Â€).... Which smartphone should I buy? Thanks.
AnonD-551477, 21 Jun 2016why 32 gb not 16??? Just because of storage capacity, with 16GB you get like 10GB free to use, with 32GB you get like 24GB free to use. If you don't care about little storage capacity, then opt for the 16GB one.

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.
