    I am considering getting a 5x and was hoping those of you who have been using it for a while could tell me if some of the bugs people complained about early on have been resolved.
    Specifically I am interested in hearing about jank and slowness in the camera app and in general, poor headphone and speakerphone volume, bad feeling vibration motor, yellow screen, poor battery, and just general laggy performance that some users seemed to have.
    I have heard some say that all this was fixed in the March update, while others say not so much. I have also seen some post that nougat really helped, and, again, others that said it didn't.
    Thanks in advance for any knowledge and experience you are willing to share.

    I've been using the 5X since mid-February (bought one used off of Swappa) and really love it. It was on stock 6.0.1 when I got it, and I've been through some custom ROM's and am now on stock 7.0 (started using 7.0 when developer preview 3 came out in May) and really have no problems. The camera seems quick enough, the phone also handles well enough. I do get an occasional lag, but it doesn't last long and then I'm off running again.

    I have used it since novmeber 2015, and yeah i like it a lot and it feels good and all but i keep getting lags, but mostly when i use snapchat and sometimes opening the camera, but then again i feel it take great pics!

    as for battery it is so so , but now i think i have gotten used to it so feel it is not so good, but normally kill the battery twice a day...

    @alfick3 , custom roms? what you mean? i have some app to modify the rom and tried that but not sure it does so much..

    You folks talk about lags. What constitutes a lag?

    for me a lag is when it take a couple of seconds before the action you want to preform happens.

    there should be an app or something that could measure this, or the comparability with apps and the hardware..

    2 seconds is within my patience zone. 5 would be torture.

    Nexus 5X ... love it. No user issues for me except the occasional non-recognition of fingerprints. This most likely due to using it in a wallet case.

    Thanks for all the help. I will be moving from a note 5 to get on Project Fi and I, while the Note performs well, am ready to get a smaller phone. Anyone with experience with an s6, s7, or note 5 that can give me a comparison regarding battery and performance?
    Thanks again!
