Latest Nexus 5X OTA update Will Fix Slowdown Issues, Plus DND Alarm Bug
Google’s current flagship handset, the Nexus 5X, wasn’t quite working as several users reported experiencing sluggish performance, apps shutting down, and some other annoyances that could ruin your time with the latest Marshmallow OS.
The good news for Nexus 5X owners is that Google is rolling out out an over-the-air (OTA) update today that would address a number of issues raised by users. A Google community manager posted on Reddit:
We have listened to your feedback, and this update includes a number of bug fixes that will improve overall stability, connectivity, and performance on the Nexus 5X. The March security update will be included with this OTA for the Nexus 5X. I’ll continue to monitor the threads here and pass along info to the product teams.
In addition to addressing general issues related to slow and sluggish performance, the latest update will fix is the disappearing bug plaguing “Do not disturb (DND) until next alarm.” Users can also expect general improvements to Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, and some security updates, too.
LG-made Nexus 5X is priced at $349 for the base model. The handset has got a perfectly respectable feature set including a 5.2-inch full HD screen, a Snapdragon 808 chipset, 2GB of RAM, 12.3MP main camera with dual-LED flash, and 5MP selfie shooter.
Running on stock Android Marshmallow, 5X also features a fast and accurate fingerprint scanner, and 3220mAh battery with Turbo Charging.
