    Stutter, crash, lag

    I've used every phone in the Nexus series since the Galaxy Nexus, and thus truly feels like a step backwards. The only virtues of this device, compared to the competition, are the fingerprint scanner and the multi-carrier compatibility (this will work on Verizon, despite what a store rep may tell you). Perhaps 2 GB ram isn't enough for the Snapdragon 808, because this device behaves more strangely than any Android phone I've used. Everything is wildly inconsistent. The camera app will work fine one minute, and then take 3 seconds to snap a picture after pressing the capture key the next. When I open Gmail, half the time the little compose icon in the bottom right gets tiled momentarily and I get a nice mosaic instead of Gmail landing menu for a few seconds. Web browsing on Chrome can be fast or unbelievably slow depending on the phone 's mood and the alignment of the stars. A number of reviewers called out the performance hiccups when they first reviewed the device, but most seemed convinced software updates had ironed them out. They haven't, not by a longshot. I thought my unit may be defective, but other owners on forums like XDA Developers are complaining about similar problems. In short: PROS: Good call quality, nice fingerprint sensor, decent screen, carrier-neutral CONS: Terrible performance, mediocre battery life, unpredictable camera, cheap build quality for the money, too big for a 5.2" screen. Buy a Moto X Pure Edition instead.

    Read the Nexus 5X forums - major lagging/freezing

    This is absolutely a beautiful piece of hardware and I really love the phone. However, wait till two weeks and it completely starts to lag and stall. Especially the camera is really bad. It will take a few seconds to start up, freeze, lose photos etc and the only way to get it to work again is to restart the phone. At this point I am restarting the phone almost every other day. The forums are really alive with complaints about the phone and Google is not taking any action. Below are two links to discussions on how bad things are. https://groups.google.com/a/googleproductforums.com/d/msgid/nexus/f11e8cf5-45c7-4e37-a862-94ac0f43288b%40googleproductforums.com https://productforums.google.com/forum/?utm_medium=email&utm_source=footer#!msg/nexus/VDpAhli9X3c/DS_64jabAwAJ

    Horrible battery life

    At first this phone is great, works flawless, how ever i noticed the first day of use I noticed that the battery level of the phone drops unreasonably fast. And I was not even doing anything that would warrant such a drain. If by some means battery life does not matter to you then by all means purchase this phone. But you best believe I am returning this phone
