Google/LG Nexus 5X: LG offers refund because an essential part is out of stock
The LG made Nexus 5X by Google hit the market about one year ago, yet it may already be fit for scrap if it breaks. Users on reddit report, that LG offered them a full refund instead of finishing the repair because a certain not specified part apparently was out of stock and won't be available anymore according to LG's response to the users. Most likely, the missing part is the mainbord of the Nexus 5X itself. Reports of delays for mainboard replacements have been circulating the web since September already.
Currently, a lot of Nexus 5X users are reporting hardware failures due to their attempt to install Android 7 on their Nexus 5X mobiles. This seems to cause bootloops on some faulty models after the upgrade initiated. Apparently this is a hardware failure that cannot be solved unless the mainboard is replaced. The phone is still available in some shops but it disappeared from the Google store and most likely will not return anymore.
