    How is your experience with the battery of the 5X? My expectations were better than reality. On a day where I use it often, I'll have to charge it up to 2 times / 24h. If I don't use it often just 1 time / 24h. And the charging is fast. 30% to 90% in 45 min or something...

    I find it OK, generally. Obviously, when the screen is lit, the battery drops rapidly but otherwise it's as I would expect, i.e. no worse than any other phone I've had in the last 10 years, a little better than some.

    On a day when I don't use it much, I have seen 75% left around lunch-time and 50% around dinner-time, so I consider that pretty good. A couple times I've gone to bed at night with it showing 40%, but more often it's in the low-20's at day's end.

    Battery Life is very poor, especially when compared to my IPhone 6S

    It's OK. I have to be careful if I'm going to need it for something important - like a Boarding Card - late in the day, but so far, I've never found myself with a dead (or so near dead it makes no difference) phone (touch wood).

    The discussion is pointless without knowing how the Nexus 5x is being "used". I have no games on my phone. I do not stream music or videos. I do my internet surfing on my desktop computer. I have no problems with battery life.

    My phone sits on my desk all day. I work in a Faraday cage. When I got Nougat my battery life was noticeably worse. Since my Nexus 5 if I didn't use my phone much I'd go home from work with 75%. I'd be lucky to have 50% with Nougat. Yesterday it was back to 75% though.

    Don't know about that specific device but I am very impressed with the battery life of my Galaxy Tab 4. I get about 8-10 hours on it depending on what I'm doing... And this includes playing some pretty heavy video games, Flash, video, etc.

    After nougat update, noticeable improvement. I surf a little through the day, stream short vid clips (<10), text. Noticed about a 30% improvement by end of work day. That was just one day, will have to see as the days progress

    I am admittedly not a power user and just use my phone for calls, texting, email and light browsing with some photo taking thrown in. But my battery life has been acceptable. I can easily get two days out of a charge.
    I am pretty thorough about turning off stuff I don't use and disabling unnecessary syncing, etc.
