Don't Install Android 8.1 If You're Unprepared
So there are some good reasons to install Android 8.1 right now or soon after the update arrives for your Nexus 5X. There are also some good reasons to take a raincheck and we want to outline three of them here for you.
If you haven't prepared yourself and/or your Nexus 5X for the transition from Android 8.0 to Android 8.1 , you should hold off on an install and take some time to properly prepare.
There's no telling how Android 8.1 will treat your Nexus 5X. You could see a boost, but you could also run into devastating problems. This is precisely why you should make sure everything, including your backups, are ready to go before you make the move.
We've put together a game plan that takes you step-by-step through the process we take before we install Android updates.
This could take a few minutes or a few hours. It all depends on your skill level and how well you take care of your Nexus 5X.
