Google may have bid goodbye to the Nexus program, but there are still lots of Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P users out there.
Some people are capable of using the same phone for years and with a phone like the Google Nexus 5X, there are some who are simply not willing to stop using it anytime soon. One problem, though, is the bootloop issue the phone has been facing after a period of use.
Many have reported this issue to both Google and LG. While some have had their problem solved through replacements and refunds, some have not gotten any help this far. It has been worse for some who have replaced the Nexus 5X on more than one occasion and as a result, most have decided that the phone – and LG – is a no-go zone.
For those who have decided to ditch the Nexus 5X, it appears that some are switching to the smaller Pixel phone. Despite offering superior performance, this phone is a little too expensive. As a result, some previous Nexus 5X users have been switching to other devices such as the Moto G5, which is still a solid option priced affordably, but the performance is definitely nowhere near the 5X.
Others have opted for the Huawei Honor 8. While you get superior performance, a better battery life, a compact size and good pricing, the Honor 8’s software experience and camera quality might be of a concern to some. If you are fine with even more customized software, the OnePlus 5 has worked wonders for some, especially since it has the latest hardware that makes it as powerful as the Galaxy S8, HTC U11 and Sony Xperia XZ Premium, yet priced affordably.
With the price of the Galaxy S8 slowly heading on the downside, the phone has also turned out to be an option for some. Like the OnePlus 5, you get the latest hardware and features, but it’s the design that stands out. The software isn’t as bad, but it’s not similar to what you get on the Nexus 5X.
Some people also think that the ZTE Axon 7, OnePlus 3T, Moto Z Play or even the HTC 10 are worth looking at, especially now that their prices are right there with the Nexus 5X. But if you can take any of these 2016 flagships, it means that the Galaxy S7 is also an option and so is the Huawei P9.
In short, there are plenty of options out there for those leaving behind the Google Nexus 5X, but which one do you think is the best?
