You Can Downgrade

If you can't stand Android Oreo's performance (or features) you can try dropping down to Android Nougat (or and older version of Android Oreo) to see if that improves things.

If you’re unfamiliar with how the Android downgrade process for Nexus devices, take a look at this guide, courtesy of the Nexus Help Forums.

The walkthrough will take you through the steps you need to take in order to move off the current version of Android you're currently running. 

There's no guarantee downgrading to Nougat will help, but it's worth a shot if you simply can't stand Android Oreo on your Nexus 5X.

    Only have done the update since they officially rolled it out and it killed my phone.
    It got stuck in a boot loop and now won’t turn on period. Software has become corrupted and unrecoverable.
    I would consider avoiding the update completely for 5X users because now I have to buy a new phone, but that’s just my personal experience.

    After installing Oreo this morning my Nexus 5X is now running warm and almost hot to the touch. It was not warm when running Nougat. I can also confirm that I have turned off the phone for fifteen minutes until it completely cooled down and then rebooted the Nexus 5X and it still heats up. I can also confirm that battery is draining about 70% faster than it was when my Nexus 5X was running Nougat. When my Nexus 5x was running Nougat yesterday, my phone battery would last for up to two days, and now with the Oreo update that I performed two hours ago at full charge, my phone battery life has been reduced to six hours (current Android Power Management projection and falling fast; now it’s projecting five hours only fifteen minutes later), and yes the phone is still noticeably warm to the touch, which it was not with Android Nougat running on this Nexus 5X for the last eight months. How can The Deciders at Google decide to push an OS update to a device like the Nexus 5X when that update severely degrades that device’s performance? One wonders if they even tested Oreo on the Nexus 5X before they gave the green light to deploy Oreo to the Nexus 5X.
