Installing Google’s Nexus 5X Android O beta might be tempting but most of you should probably stay put on Android Nougat.
The Nexus 5X Android O update, now confirmed to be Android 8.0, won’t arrive until the third quarter but you can try it out ahead of time thanks to pre-release software Google’s released ahead of the official release date.
Google’s Android O preview for the Nexus 5X delivers new features, tweaks, and other improvements to the aging former flagship.
There are plenty of reasons to consider installing the Android O preview on your Nexus 5X. It includes new emojis, the potential for improved battery life and performance, a smart autofill feature, Picture-in-Picture mode, and some key improvements to notifications.
That said, there are also some good reasons to avoid the early version of Android O, especially now that we’re close to the final release.
Some of you might want to wait a few more days before installing Android 8.0 on your phone. Other Nexus 5X owners are probably better off waiting for the official version of the Nexus 5X Android O update to arrive.
We’ve been using the Android O preview on our Nexus 5X for a few weeks now and today we want to walk you through some reasons why you should, and shouldn’t, install the Android O update on your phone.
