Nexus 5X: 2 Reasons to Buy & 4 Reasons Not To (2017)



Wait If You're Unprepared

Wait If You're Unprepared

If you're determined to buy the Nexus 5X, make sure you wait until you're properly prepared.

We've said it before and we'll say it again. One of the worst things you can do during your search for a new smartphone is rush into a purchase. If your phone isn't busted, you've got time. And if you've got time you need to cover all of your bases before you spend your cash. 

You need to figure out what to do with your old phone. Selling it could help offset the cost of buying a new Nexus 5X. 

You need to dig into carrier pricing and data plans. If you haven't upgraded in awhile, they've probably changed since you last looked.

You should check carrier coverage in and around your home and the areas you frequent the most to make sure you're covered. You'll also want to research Nexus 5X alternatives, check for deals, and so on. 

You probably won't be able to get this done in a day and it could take you a week or more depending on your schedule. 

Take however long it takes you to feel comfortable.

    Bootloop issue alone should be enough reason to avoid the 5X at this point. Otherwise it is indeed a pretty great phone… but if you need to rely on it, I’d avoid it. If you’re gonna buy a used 5X, make sure you get all the info so you can send it back to LG when it stops working. I’m on my 3rd replacement myself.
