    Hi guys, I recently bought the nexus 5x. During setup I tried transferring information from my old sony z3 compact, but it always reported "sorry something went wrong".

    I later went on to manually set up everything and so far the device is working ok.

    Is this setup error something to worry about?

    Thank you

    I don't think so. I just got an RMA Nexus 5X and it wouldn't let me restore my apps and setting either. For me, it's all the better. I only put the apps I'm using now back on, and the phone dozes much better. But it does look like a bug with the latest Nougat version.

    Hi Kittanun,

    I've encountered errors like you describe when trying to set up a device from some non-Nexus devices. It seems that some manufacturers may have implemented the backup/restore code differently. It works pretty reliably for me going from Nexus to Nexus.

    At any rate, since you were able to continue and set up the device manually I don't think there's anything to worry about with that error. It won't have any lasting effects.

    Enjoy the Nexus!
