Although both the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X are well built and have more than decent specs, these two handsets were often criticized for their performance, especially the 5X. Fortunately, this month's Android update seems to take care of these alleged issues.

The list of changes that affect both handsets once the update completes includes the following:

  • DND next alarm issue fix
  • Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity improvements
  • general performance problems fix
  • carrier-specific bug fixes

In addition to the above, various minor issues have been fixed as well. Google made the update images available for download already, namely MHC19J and MMB29V for Nexus 5X, as well as MHC19I for Nexus 6P. 

Users of these two Nexus handsets can also get the Android N preview images installed, but they are early builds not aimed at consumers. However, the major new features seem to work well enough to be enjoyed already, especially multi-window support.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
