10 Things to Know About the Nexus 5X Android O Update

Nexus 5X Android O Release Date

As for the official release date, Google hasn't attached a specific day to the Nexus 5X Android O update's release.

During Google I/O the company confirmed an Android O release for "late summer" and the timeline points to a release sometime in Q3 if all goes well during testing.

Google was supposedly targeting an Android O release sometime during the second week of August but that didn't pan out. The company has reportedly pushed the OTA and it appears that August 21st is the company's new target date. 

Google did pull the Android Nougat update out of beta in August so we could see Android O follow a similar path and touch down sometime this month. 

The company recently said it couldn't guarantee Android version updates after September 2017 meaning Android O will probably be the last major upgrade for the Nexus 5X. 

That said, it plans to roll out security patches to the Nexus 5X through September 2018. After that, nothing is guaranteed.

    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).
