The baron, 07 May 2022It is even today my daily phone.That's some impressive staying power. ; - ) And it makes me feel guilty for getting rid of mine years ago, but I agree it was a great phone back in its day. FYI, based on the note from the site below it appears it's days may be coming to an end regardless of it still working for you as U.S. carriers are dropping support for 3G. : - (

    It is even today my daily phone.

      It was a very decent phone with a great camera and looks. Felt nice to touch, weighed next to nothing, which I liked alot.
      Unfortunately it had a fatal design flaw in its cooling system that caused CPU overheat exfoliation. It all ended up with a bootloop majority of owners experienced. Too bad

              Bought at March 2017. Still ongoing. Fantastic phone.

                I bought this phone on 2016 May, i loved it but sadly i only use it for short period of time only because i drop it from my 34th floor on my condo. The camera is top notch. battery was sub par. On Jul 2021 i manage to fix the screen which i bought from aliexpress but sadly my phone doesnt turn on at all. It is very sad to see such a device ended up being malfunction. Oh yes i bought it for RM1, 100.00 I wish my future phone wont ended up being like my 5x.

                  I got mine repaired under extended warranty but it came back dead slow maybe because they disabled 2 cores? Also, Upgraded to Android 8.

                    That's where I got my replacement battery.

                    Also look into their toolkits. There is one they offer that has nearly every tool needed to get into 95% of devices.

                                My nexus 5x died just before 2 year, motherboard replaced under warranty. Now it has 4 years, battery started to discharge rapidly, had to be recharged at least 2 time a day. I replaced the battery at home with a new one with very small improvement, almost none. Anyone has any idea what can I do to have only 1 charging a day? I really love this phone, it works very good and the photos are really amazing for this phone. It would be a big loss to had to change the phone for this problem.

Some people prevented the bootloop by installing a copper laminated sheet near the SoC to cool off the hot CPU.
