    I like mine, but don't need another one.

    My Nexus 5X is still going strong and honestly, is more phone than I really need.
    Barring accident or failure, I don't plan to replace it for at least another year.

    My only real concern is the lack of security updates, but other than contacts, I don't keep sensitive info on the phone.

    Hmmm... My Nexus 6 was getting slow, hanging, and even needing a reboot fairly often. I still miss the 16x9 form factor, but the performance of this new phone far exceeds that of my Nexus 6.

    P.S. Well that makes a little sense, Just looked it up and the 5X, was a newer phone than the 6, which is a little odd considering the numeric name order, but okay.

    Have you tried factory reset? Sometimes it helps by cleaning out the junk in the cache.

    I have a peeve about the forced obsolescence by the phone makers. Motorola stopped security updates on my Moto G5+ barely two years after introduction. As far as I know there is no good recycling available for electronic junk. They get sent to third world countries where they are taken apart under unsafe conditions resulting in soil and water contamination.

    Agreed, and it's not just cell phones. So many of today's appliances are basically disposable. Most things are just cheaper/easier to replace than repair...

    The Nexus 5 & 6 were different model lines. The 5X and 6P were the next (and last) generation of each. The 6/6P models were larger and had a few features the that the 5/5X models didn't.
