Nexus 5X Software Support Extended

The Nexus 5X is getting older but the device should receive Android releases for the next year or so. 

The company recently said it couldn't guarantee Android version updates after September 2017 meaning Android Oreo will most likely be the last major operating system upgrade for the Nexus 5X. An official move to Android P is unlikely.

Originally, Google said it planned to stop security updates in September, 2018. Those plans have apparently changed. 

The company now says it plans to roll out security patches to the Nexus 5X through November 2018. After that, support will stop and you'll be on your own.

    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.

    I have updated my Nexus 5X to Android 8.0, but it’s not connecting to WiFi anymore! I used a different phone to connect to the same network I cannot connect to with my Nexus 5X. I have restarted it multiple times, I rebooted it in “safe mode”, I even did a factory reset, but it didn’t work at all :( I can only use my data, but not the WiFi. What can I do to solve this? Please help me!

    I reluctantly installed Oreo a few weeks ago on my Galaxy S8. I absolutely hated Lollipop and Marshmallow with all my heart. Then Nougat launched and restored my faith in Android. Never had I been so happy with an OS since Kitkat (GOAT) IMO.
    Anyways I enjoyed Nougat a great deal. I considered it Kitkat 2.0.
    Now I have Oreo and my GS8 battery drains faster than it can charge. Constant LTE drops which in turn affect my wifi. So I always have to preemptively turn my wifi off & on before I use Google or send an email. In between constant (App Stack Failures)

    I spoke at great length with Samsung Support and tried everything to remedy these issues short of driving 2 hours North just to get no help.

    Anyways cry complain piss and moan.
