Google Nexus 5X by LG User Thread (LG H790)

Recommended Posts

Well the downside is dropping to 3G instead of B26 if you go more than a mile from a tower in the suburbs where density is roughly 1 tower per 3 square miles. :/ I'm really not sure why 26 isn't configured for coverage yet.

I was going to say the same thing. LTE 800 in my area (suburbs) was launched with similar coverage as B25. But I believe they just recently optimized it for coverage in the last week for me. I'm now getting -108 to -110dBm in areas where it was 3G only. A stable 5mbps, not too fast, but not too slow either. I would really like some B41 love in my area, though!

FYI: The 5X is on a one day black Friday sale at Google and other online retailers.

$80 off is not bad at all. Kinda wish I waited, but I needed a new phone then.

I called my credit card company and got a refund of the difference since the purchase is within 60 days.

How is everyone liking the 5X ?  I returned my 6P last week and just ordered the 5X when it went on sale today.  Currently using a LG G3 which isn't a bad phone either,   not sure which one I'll make the daily driver yet.

Great idea.  Only because of your mental suggestion did I discover that my primary credit card has a 90 day price protection benefit.  The $80 means relatively little to me, but it will be nice to receive that credit.  And I do think that the Nexus 5X -- while a nice handset and solid performer -- is more appropriately placed at the starting price of $300.

 

With Robert's destroyed Nexus 6P reimbursement and now this Nexus 5X price protection, the credit card fairy has blessed S4GRU this holiday season.

Thanks for this post - I'd have completely forgotten to check. We'll see if the Citi Price Rewind finds it on its own or I have to do more paperwork...

Thanks for the tip. Looks like Amex stopped offering this a few years ago. Didn't even think of checking though.

I have Amex which doesn't have price protection but they did dispute the charge and are taking it up with Google. In the meantime they have credited my account.

Roberts misfortune prompted me to check my credit card benefits fine print and I have the 90 day price protection and the product coverage too.

 

 

 

I ordered the 5X tonight as well, figured I may as well try it while it's $80 off in case I like it and decide to keep it. Was put off by the 6P given Roberts experience with support, and them seeming to have some QC issues. Plus it wasn't on sale hahaha.

I don't want to dispute the whole charge, but I would like $80 back of I can. Is this the only way through Amex?

I have the LG G3 as well and just ordered the 5x. Agreed the G3 is not a bad phone, but it has not been quite the same sine the Lollipop update. This will be my first Nexus device so looking forward to that experience.

You can just dispute $80 of the charge. You don't have to dispute the whole thing.

Anyone using the 5x with an Airave? Waiting for mine to arrive and just started to worry that this may be an issue. This is my first Nexus device. I have very low signal right at my house and the Airave is a must since wifi calling is out.

Wow. Tonight was the first time I really got to extensively drive test this thing in various low-signal spots around me and the 5X is AMAZING at holding fringe B25 compared to the 5. This is the first time I've ever made it from HWY51 to Fairview Rd on Providence Rd without dropping LTE.

Works like any other tri-band phone. If you have LTE in the area, it won't grab your air-rave unless you're in 3G only mode.

I hope the performance is great using it on the GSM side too. My N5 was good on Sprint and AWFUL on T-Mo/AT&T.

I'm visiting a marginal LTE area and the 5X sometimes will drop LTE to use the Airave I installed. It definitely used it for a call I made earlier today.

The 5X works great on Movistars GSM and HSPA+ in Mexico, FWIW.

I've been hearing reports of the 5X having alot of lag sometimes. Have any of you guys had that problem? 

 

Starting to wonder if I should hold off on the 5X too...

I was worried I was the only one having problems with it. I guess not.

How is battery life on the 5X, specifically typical screen on time?

I get lag & stuttering once in a while. No root, OEM ROM. I get lags while using Chrome, YouTube, and sometimes when switching between apps and opening apps. Kinda surprised it has not been much better than my old N5.

 

My SOT ranges between 3.5 to 4.5 hrs.

    • Yes I did restart app. Also rebooted Moto and turned off other signal apps. No accent. Restarting app also was needed on LG V20 if you want to turn accent off (turn off setting then restart app needed). Thanks
    • Hey thanks!! 🍻 I already saw your report and have been looking into it, I'm trying to get another release pushed out this morning to give you guys another try at everything for me.. the Red Pocket SIM caught my eye as the only oddity, although SCP identifies it as T-Mobile so it should show a magenta line. Did you try restarting the app after enabling the option, just in case? (You shouldn't have to do this but who knows). I'm adding some extra logging that should show me some more details why this might be missing. Stay tuned.
    • Accent seems to work fine on my Sprint LG V20 using Android 8. I have not tested it yet switch to T-Mobile or AT&T or Verizon etc.  No accent on my Moto G7 Power Unlocked and rooted with Android 9 on T-Mobile network using Red Pocket sim. I assume accent is triggered by PLMN, but maybe by sim carrier? Diags and beer money sent for both so you can compare if needed.
    • Here is the stock email WebSalesTeam@symm.onmicrosoft.com  Or this person, I get many emails from them all the time. Alex Guerra Internet Sales Representative AlexG@symmetryelectronics.com Office:  310.643.3454 Direct: 310.643.3455 Fax:  310.297.0881 Also, it ships from Beautiful Texas USA. The tariff is just what they already paid and they are passing it on to you. They should be able to void your order and process a new one. They have done it for me for this exact same reason. Another thing is they try to hide the cheapo USPS 3 dollar shipping at the bottom of the shipping page, keep an eye out for that and save some $$$
    • Shoot them an email, it takes them like 3 days to ship anything
