I'd love to watch this video on my Nexus 5X that is just over 15 months old, however it's succumbed to the infamous bootloop problem and now I've gotta pay for LG to repair it. It's gonna be expensive. Although it is a good phone, the motherboard is crap and will fail. Don't buy this phone.
so this happened yesterday, My second Nexus Phone just died, got stuck into a bootloop, then refused to turn on, then shut-off completely after exactly 1 Year and 2 months (14 months).
now to tell you the story from the beginning, I had my first Nexus device in 2012 which was Nexus 7, and I was amazed on how well pure android performs on a tablet contrary to Samsung tablets, I was in love, that was my first mistake, 2 years down the road, the tab began to hang and freeze & the only solution was to reset and work with it again, something about its build or RAM i don't know exactly.
then in 2013 I got my first nexus phone (Nexus 5) it was really amazing, it performed beyond expectations, was very fast compared to its rivals which cost almost its double, and I was happy, actually happy, but Unfortunately, this did not last, on mid 2016 it got stuck into a bootloop where the power button got stuck that it always is pressed , maybe it was my fault as the cover of the nexus was slightly pressing down on the button, I said ok, tried to fix it, went to professionals but to no avail.
people said, well it performed well for over 3 years, you should praise it for all those 3 years, and I said fine, so I thought to myself, If a mobile worth 3500 EGP got me around 3 years with nothing like freeze or hang or random shut-off, definitely its successor (Nexus 5x) would at least perform the same, if not better.
here then and there is where I made the stupidest mistake, I was deeply loyal to the Nexus devices that I didn't even consider any other brand, I thought to my self no other mobile will be this comfortable and within this price range, this was in July-2016 so it cost me exactly EGP 3800, which I was like "YAY" :D
here was my mistake, I was so stupid that I bought the same phone from the same manufacturer with the same brand expecting things would be different " this is the definition of insanity " by the way.
My new phone nexus 5x had died from the SAME problem that the first phone suffered from.
What I failed to notice, being blind by my loyalty to GOOGLE & LG, never thought that google would betray its loyal customers like this, is when google supposedly discovered the issue that LG had done with the Nexus line it decided to switch to another brand in its Nexus 6P.
As I was too busy trusting you "Google" & "LG", you have stabbed in my back.
After a through research on the nexus forum, i discovered the following, thousands of Nexus 5x users had encountered that same problem exactly after 1 year of their purchase (depending on their usage), so when I followed what they did, it was so ********* simple, they just went to google & then it was replaced, the most complain that I saw, is that one of the guys had to wait a long time until his device was replaced because he bought it from a third party store.
What I've also learned, is that google recognizes this problem and immediately replaces the device.
Too bad that I'm in this hellhole, where If I sent it to google they would replace it, and when it comes back to this swamp, I'll have to pay CUSTOMS for the SECOND time, which by my estimation would definitely cost more than what I had originally paid, in addition to the shipping cost, and all of this would not be done in a fortnight, it would take at least 2 -3 months.
so in conclusion, I've got now 3 Nexus devices (N7 + N5 + N5x)
How many of them I can actually use ?
Answer = ZERO
This story was just to sum up my mistake, and to widen your gaze not to stay loyal to one single company or brand just because it was good in the past, when you need to make a decision you need to be more objective and consider all possible scenarios.
I have a 5X, best phone I had, one day I was playing a game and it just froze and the screen went black and it wouldn't turn on and still won't till this day and I figured out its called boot loop that's a problem with the LG Google Nexus 5X
Ohhh, I loved my nexus 5x.
I had it for almost 2 years before it died, that was actually a pretty funny (sad for me) story; the device went on a boot loop two months ago and I went to a phone service that replaced a few parts (battery, charging pin, etc), then after two days the processor died. I couldn't take it to a google or lg certified service because I live in Venezuela and there are non of those here. But coming back to the nexus, I'm pretty much certain that it was THE BEST "budget phone" that I ever used or owned (I previously had a nexus 4 and a moto g2), for know I'm stuck with my old and nasty galaxy S3.
Ever heard of the word bootloop? it's a a nightmare that strikes nexus 5X phones once you keep upgrading. My phone litteraly shut down and I was on a call. and this was after upgrading to the new android O.
Hi Marques! I really loved your video about Nexus 5x and I have to thank you because I recently bought one and I never thought I will like Google phones so much.
Keep up with the awesome work and don't forget you are awesome!
about a year on the nexus after years of iPhone... just wanted to explore google phones and how they work...the picture quality is the best thing about this phone - software is shit. but Man I can't wait for the iPhone 8 !! plus my macbook pro yearns for one
James Gordon don't know how much it costs by you but it runs smooth and can handle some more powerful games too. The camera is 100% the best at that price As far as I know it's gonna get Android 8 so software shouldn't be a problem. it's a great phone if you value stock android, updates and camera but I think you can get a better one for its price. Since it has no SD card slot, consider buying the 32gb model, it'll be worth it
Very stuck between this and the 6P, for budgeting reasons of course. Pixel is too expensive. I plan to switch to Project Fi. Currently using the iPhone SE, last Android phone I had was the LG G3. I know you can pay over time but I want to just buy a phone out of the gate, because I don't know if I'll want to stick with the same phone while paying it off.
Hey Marques, great video! Been a while since you recorded this, but I just started looking at these phones. Your delivery is Broadcast ready. Anderson Cooper used to freelance and shoot his own video. What amazed me about his work, was how well he stayed on message. Apparently even people with lots of experience have a hard time with this. You didn't miss a beat!
Bia S. I get around 3.5 hours of screen on time with mainly gaming and listening to music. Battery life isn't the greatest thing of the phone, but it's acceptable and I always have a powerbank with me, so that's okay.
Bia S. 5X. Only things that A5 (16) is better are the expendable storage, superAmoled display (quite oversaturated) and the Samsung has got Gorilla Glass 4 in front and back and it looks better. Every other thing the 5X is way better.
