Google Nexus 5X Update Brings Performance Fixes, Connectivity Improvements, More
Google is addressing the performance issues on the LG Nexus 5X smartphone. The Mountain View-based company has rolled out an update alongside the Security Patch Level of March 01, 2016 to take away some glitches that were crippling an otherwise decent high-end smartphone.
The Mountain View-based company took to Reddit to assure users that it has been listening to their feedback. A verified Google employee, who goes by alias GoogleNexusCM on the message board,added that Google has released an OTA update (build MHC19J) on Tuesday for the Nexus 5X to make it more performance efficient, apart from featuring the March Android security update.
"I know there has been some discussion here about the 5X-specific factory images that were posted yesterday on the developers site. I wanted to give some clarification around this, and specifically let you all know that an OTA update will begin rolling out today for the Nexus 5X," he wrote.
As for the improvements, Google is apparently fixing a number of bugs to bring stability, connectivity and performance improvements. The user, who identifies himself as Nexus community manager, offers the following changelog.

  • DND next alarm disappearing issue
  • Bluetooth/ Wi-Fi improvements
  • Carrier-specific bug fixes
