Is it Nexuses or Nexi? 🤔

I miss the Nexus 5x. I love LG as a brand but their phone branch is awful. LG G3/G4, Nexus 5x, bootloops. And the pixel 2XL blue shift panel. Google needs to get htc or Samsung again. Or source pixel themselves. Do not get any LG phones.
Jovie Brett Bardoles (2 months ago)
This was the first Nexus phone I've ever had, a really great phone if it wasn't because of the bootloop issue.

Phone sucks, i have it

This phone and the Xiaomi Mi A1 are likely the Best Buy for a little over $200.
Brittany Wasserbeck (7 months ago)
Not a best buy because it isn't compatible with androids new software.
Louie R (7 months ago)
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.
Louie R (7 months ago)
Brittany Wasserbeck Yeah, same here, I'm disappointed by LG and Google not recognising that it is a problem and offering nothing to owners of affected devices
Brittany Wasserbeck (7 months ago)
Had it since release. I'm so upset with this bootloop after upgrading to POS Oreo. I'm not paying a cent for a software/hardware issue that isn't my damn fault.

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.

what about sound,and speakers??
Luis Feijoo (10 months ago)
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.
David Celaya (7 months ago)
Almost same story. Sucks. I guess $400 for 2 years is about all I'm supposed to expect. Dumping google and fi.

Niels Van Steen (11 months ago)
My guestion would the battery last 5hours in a plane while watching a downloaded TV serie ? EDIT: notice the phone would have airplane mode enabled and thus consume less power

Ituze Christian (1 year ago)
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.
David Celaya (7 months ago)
Android O killed my 5x. It's just that google wont admit it. Blaming lg. Whatever. They got my money once, no more. Bye google, bye fi.
Kimberly Yeung (1 year ago)
Worst phone I've ever had. I switched from iphone to this and i'm never making that mistake again.
David Celaya (7 months ago)
Sorry to hear that. The nexus 4 was an awesome cheap device. The nexus 5x was supposed to be the successor. My was great, for the 2 years it worked. RIP Nexus.

James Gordon (1 year ago)
Is the Nexus 5X still worth it in 2017 if you're on a budget?
Johannes Hardt (1 year ago)
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

what's the performance of this phone after an year
Ty Brown (1 year ago)
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.
ADP (1 year ago)
Ty Brown my nexus 6p is slow and lags as hell what's "pure nexus" is it like an app or something
Ty Brown (1 year ago)
I ended up getting the 6P and installed Pure Nexus. Very happy!!
Ty Brown the 6p, but if you want a super nice phone, the 5x.
Rick Emmet (1 year ago)
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!

galaxy a5 2016 or lg nexus 5x?
xpforeverGAMING (1 year ago)
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. (1 year ago)
I always see people complaining about the battery life
xpforeverGAMING (1 year ago)
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.

Debating between the Nexus 5 or 5x. I initially was going to get a 5x but the bootloop issue is a concern. Does anybody know how prevalent the bootloop issue is on the 5x?

Deepanshu Tomar ji (1 year ago)
is it single sim or dual sim does it support SD card
xpforeverGAMING (1 year ago)
Deepanshu Tomar ji Single sim. At least my 5X has got only one nanoSIM slot. And there's no microSD extension slot unfortunately.
