Nexus 5X Android O Problems & Fixes

We've noticed some UI lag and random reboots but there are plenty of other problems plaguing the Nexus 5X Android O update right now.

Nexus 5X users are complaining about installation issues, weird battery loss, problems with speakers, issues with Wi-Fi, problems connecting to Bluetooth devices, issues with various third-party apps and services including crashes, and lockups and freezes.

Google's keeping a running list of issues on the Android O beta and we expect complaints to pickup as more people decide to install the Android O beta onto their Nexus 5X. 

This is what you're getting yourself into if and when you decide to install the Android O beta on your phone. Problems can occur at anytime. 

If you rely on your phone for work or school projects and communication, you'll definitely want to think about staying on Android Nougat. 

If you do run into problems on the Nexus 5X Android O beta you can't rely on Google to fix your problems. Beta updates don't come every week and the next release will probably bring its own set of bugs. 

You'll need to be extremely proactive and track down fixes yourself. There are a ton of resources out there but our list of fixes for the most common Nexus Android issues is a great place to start if you're struggling on the beta. 

Our guide will show you how to fix bad battery life, issues with Wi-Fi, problems with Bluetooth, random reboots, and a few other common problems. 

If you're unable to find a fix for your problem there, and there's no guarantee that you will, take a look at our list of resources for Android problems. It lists off some of our favorite resources.

Remember, problems can popup at any time so you'll want to be as prepared as possible. Get familiar with these fixes and you'll be in good shape if and when an issue appears on your Nexus 5X.

    Gmail never worked for my Nexus 5x, (open and crush) when android beta installed. After resetting the device, could not boot and was restarting continuously. Thank God is still under warranty and just dropped it off to the retailer.

    My device became so slow I had to downgrade out of it. Which wipes your phone by the way. It has some pretty cool features but my 5x was struggling. Web browsing was extremely slow. And cycling between open apps usually involved the wrong app opening. Many apps were sluggish as well. Don’t recommend using the beta.

    I understand from what I’ve read in XDA Developer forum that the objective was to quickly boot Android O (say 15 secs) and the change in the odex files takes place in the background gradually. Hence, when you install O it will be very slow and there will be problems with the smoothness while changing or starting apps. However, in one or two days it will stabilize. Hence, if you want to try O be prepared to hang around on it for at least 2 days before giving up. Try it on the weekend maybe. Battery life from most sources seems to give 2 hours screen on time (SOT).
