Same, just like my Nexus 5 but newer and better in every way...other than no wireless charging. Loving the Android N beta too - 25 cats and counting

The second one I got for my missus had a SIM tray that wouldn't open out of the box so had to swap that for another but otherwise can't fault them.

I also have one and it doesn't have any problems.....

No they're not, they a few of the more common problems experienced by a small number of owners. The SIM problem is usually associated with using a cut down micro SIM, these phones don't cope well with the extra thickness over a proper nano.

​il agree to disagree, as i know plenty of people now with these. LG's handsets are usually really good and these are the handsets Google use for pure Android without any skins,launchers or unnecessary complications. I personally have just snapped this handset up after a Samsung Galaxy and im so relieved. It really is excellent. However everybody has there own preferences, its what keeps the world interesting.

​prob faulty... Ive had the 32gb one since they came out and never a problem.

The Nexus 5 2016 is due soon now. Worth waiting for in my opinion, particular if - like I've heard - its a 5" phone as opposed to the more phablet-like Nexus 5x.

5X is hardly 'phablet-like'. Besides which, it won't be £169, or anything like it.

The P9 which is more than twice as expensive and has a bloated OS that gets very slow security and firmware updates from Huawei?

Sounds like the perfect phone

went to have a look at it after seeing 32gb deal on cpw and then JL ready to do price match. but it is visibly looks poor quality compared to even Galaxy s5. ignored and bought s6.

I'd like to know where like apple they gather there cost for extra memory! you can by a 16gb memory card for £5!!

Why is the nexus 5x getting so much stick. Stock android, 808 processor, one of the best cameras, v good fingerprint reader, good size, good price. Ive been tempted to get it for a while now but people r putting me off it. Is a moto g4 a better phone?

Try running an operating system on a memory card and see how long it lasts, good memory that can handle constant high read writes is still relatively expensive.

Even Marshmallow with its adoptable storage is an experiment, and they had to optimise that to try and keep read writes as low possible.

​i swapped a Galaxy s6 for the 5X and im VERY happy with it but i have been called nuts for doing this lol.

Giffgaff do the P9 Lite for £199 unlocked.

I got one of these for my work phone from Argos when it went down to £179.

Love it. No problems at all and if I'm honest, like it more than my Samsung S7 Edge.

I'd say if you're in the market for an Android phone do it.

Have some heat

Tempted, This or the OnePlus 3 for about £100 more.

I have the 32gb version and just bought my son a 16gb version from CPW last week for £149 + £10 top up.
Both phones work flawlessly, an excellent phone for the money.

mine crashed after 3 weeks of use and never booted up. sent back.

From what I've read about the Nexus 5X most people find it quick and smooth to use to begin with, but after a few months it starts becoming sluggish. That and the battery is pretty poop. If the phone didn't have these issues I think this would be a steal.

​so take a cheap phone and stick a £5 memory card in???

You compared the price of internal memory to the price of a memory card, they are designed for completely different things, there's a reason one is cheaper than the other.

You clearly didn't understand a word I wrote.

I have the 32GB version of this phone (for a good few months now) and I cannot fault it. I'm on the N beta now and battery life is excellent. My GF has the same phone running stock and hers works great. She was an iPhone user before and has no complaints. If there was an issue she would say.
If you are in the market for the 5X this is a great deal.
I'm not going to comment on whether there are better handsets available. As a 5X owner, I can recommend it though.

Is the battery life much better on N than Marshmallow?

​Yep would have thought that would be the way to go, and you also end up with £10 of credit. I'm assuming all CPW Phones are still unlocked?

​+1 for the nuts. I went the other way. The S6 is the best phone I've ever owned.

go with the oneplus3. I had the 5x, although it had great performance and camera, they battery was aweful. I am a low to meduim user, whole would surf the web and maybe do 1hr of calls but i could not get more than a half a days usage. Screen On Time was about 3hr at most, so gave it back and got a oneplus3. Granted I paid £100 more but its a excellent phone. Looks really premium and battery life is super, which i get between 5.5hr and 6.5hrs SOT and this is with WiFI and Mobile data on (4G). Dash charging is great which within 30min of charging i charges upto 60% of the battery. Cant recommend it enough and once ordered arrived within 4days.

Think they were comparing the 32gb at £229 vs oneplus 3 which have would be £100 price difference. Unless they can get it at £270 and I would be very interested.

Not sure CPW have any stock of the 16gb version now as it gets cleared out of my basket after adding!

Nonsense....

Had a 5x since release date and never had any of these so called "common problems".

As far as comparing it to a oneplus 3 lol, has anyone actually used both? I ordered the oneplus 3 and used it for two days then it went back. Hardware is good, screen is good, but the software is terrible, bugs all over, and very very poor support.

The 5x is Googles "current phone" until newer version in October, and it will continue to get Android updates for a couple if years yet.
