What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Boot-looping paperweight. On my third one. All have had problems, mainly the boot-looping issue (google it, there is a lawsuit).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nexus 5X I bought this phone over a year ago when it was half off on google's store, I personally believe that it was a great value for the full price though, It is barebones when it comes to features but it has the essentials, a loud speaker, great camera, great software, and a fast processor. The only gripes i had with the device were its low ram, and the lack of stereo speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Repairing the Motherboard We bought this phone quite some time ago, and it is honestly one of the best phones ever. Really fast, great camera, and awesome features. recently, the motherboard had started giving problems, though we didn't know that was the problem. We tried a new battery, but it didn't work. Contacted LG to service a repair, and to my surprise, they not only fixed the phone, but did so quickly and free of charge. I will definitely be recommending LG products to friends and family.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Expensive paperweight Phone still in warranty and is contstantly resetting, on a loop of on and off, phoned LG customer service and without proof of purchase I have to pay for repair, spoke to google who said that they could get purchase info for EMEI number, as it was a present so no receipt myself looks like I have an expensive paperweight, not like it is an isolated problem it seems that it is a common problem with this model

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed in Google and LG (Google Nexus 5x) The Google Nexus 5x phone was purchased in December 2015, it worked really well until it suddenly stopped October 5, 2017. It is evidently stuck in the boot loop issue.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Died in less than a year I was very excited about getting the 5X due to my love for products designed by Google, but this time I am extremely disappointing. I bought my 5X brand new less than a year ago and it worked better than any phone I have ever owned until it bootlooped yesterday and then became inoperable. After the bootlooping, it would not initialize by any method, including hard reset. I've never had a phone go out on me in less than a year and because of this, the Nexus 5X is the worst LG phone I've ever owned and hope this issue will be rectified.
