9 Things to Know About the Nexus 5X Android 7.1.2 Update

Google’s 5X 7.1.2 Nougat is starting to pickup steam and today we want to go over the most important things to know about the , its performance, and more as we push away from its release date.

Earlier this year, Google confirmed an 7.1.2 for its Pixel and -branded devices. The company then put the Android 7.1.2 Nougat into beta ahead of an unannounced release for the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, and others.

In early April, Google pulled the Nexus 5X Android 7.1.2 Nougat update from beta and began rolling it out to device owners around the world.

Android 7.1.2 isn’t as big as Android 7.1.1 or Android 7.0 but it’s an important update for the Nexus 5X and that’s precisely why we’re taking a close look at it today.

The Nexus 5X Android 7.1.2 update is a maintenance release which means its focused on improving performance. That said, it also comes with some brand new features including a useful fingerprint scanner gesture. It’s a substantial release for the Nexus 5X.

Today we want to go over the most important things you know to know, right now, about the Nexus 5X Android 7.1.2 update, its roll out, its problems, and its performance. We also include some tips that might help you get through the update unscathed.

Nexus 5X Android 7.1.2 Impressions & Performance

 1 / 9

We recently received the Nexus 5X Android 7.1.2 update Over-the-Air (OTA), a sign that Google’s roll out is making progress. 

If you’re waiting for the Nexus 5X Android 7.1.2 OTA, here are a few things to know about the download

/installation process. 

The device’s Android 7.1.2 update is several hundred MB. It took us a couple of minutes to download

over a high-speed Wi-Fi network. The installation process took much longer, around 10 minutes or so.

We recommend putting aside 15-20 minutes to monitor the Android 7.1.2 download

and installation. We didn’t run into any problems but you might. 

We’ve been using the update for only a short time but so far, the Android 7.1.2 update has been performing well on our Nexus 5X. 

Battery life is excellent. We haven’t noticed any weird drain during our time with the new software. Connectivity is also strong and we haven’t noticed any issues with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or cellular data. At least not yet. 

The phone’s UI is still fast. That’s important for a device that was first released all the way back in 2015. Hard to believe its been that long since launch. 

We haven’t run into any bugs or serious problems but again we’ve only been using the Android 7.1.2 update for a couple of days now. 

Given what’s on board (security patches, new features, bug fixes) and given its steady performance, you’ll definitely want to consider installing it on your Nexus 5X. 

If you’re having a pleasant experience on Android 7.1.2 or below, be sure to take your time. Dig into additional feedback if you start feeling leery. We’ll be back with long term feedback about its performance next week.
