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.

5 Reasons to Wait for the Galaxy S21 & 5 Reasons Not To

Wait for a Smaller or Non-Existent Punch Hole

Wait for a Smaller or Non-Existent Punch Hole

The Galaxy S20 series features a punch-hole on the display. The Galaxy S21 may not. 

The vice president of Samsung’s R&D group, Yang Byung-duk, says the company plans to do away with the punch-hole, but that the move will take a few years. 

Before this happens, the company plans to reduce the size of the punch-hole on upcoming devices so that it's barely visible. 

A report from MyDrivers, citing South Korean sources, claims Samsung's working to release a "perfect full screen" experience where the front-facing camera is hidden until it's needed.

The Galaxy S20 series doesn't have an under the display camera, but the technology could make its debut on an upcoming phone like the Galaxy S21. 

According to leaker Ice Universe, Samsung is thinking about using under-the-screen camera technology on the Galaxy S21.

He claims the company is currently "evaluating the feasibility of the technology" which means that while possible, it's far from guaranteed. 

In a more recent tweet, Ice Universe says that while "Samsung Display's under-screen camera solution is much ahead of other solutions, the company has "stricter requirements for under-screen camera effects than other brands."

That said, Analyst Ross Young, who has accurately predicted information in the past, doesn't think the Galaxy S21 will have an under panel display.

If you aren't a huge fan of the company's punch-holes, and you're interested in a "perfect full screen" experience, think about waiting for potential design changes on next year's models.
