By on

Google?s Nexus 5X, their Flagship Nexus 6P?s younger brother, is getting some much needed love with a new update coming to the phone, according a Google community manager on Reddit.

Google community manager Orrin posted today, ?an OTA update will begin rolling out today for the Nexus 5X. We have listened to your feedback, and this update includes a number of bug fixes that will improve overall stability, connectivity, and performance on the Nexus 5X. The March security update will be included with this OTA for the Nexus 5X.?

Most owners of the device are hoping that the update addresses Nexus 5X?s camera issues. Overall, the device is much-loved by owners and fans of Android the world over but the camera on the device is a major letdown and for some, a deal breaker. Users talk of major bugs in the camera like the camera taking forever to open and the occurrence of serious lag while clicking photos.

The Nexus 5x is well-rounded device with incredible performance for a low price. Some consider it one of the best Android deals on the market as it also gets the latest update from Google before most phones. The phone is perfect for those looking for a device from a major manufacturer that delivers on performance but doesn?t cost a bomb. Nexus 5X shipped with Google?s newest OS Marshmallow in October 2015. Some of its standout features are: Google Imprint, Now on Tap, Doze Battery saving and enhanced security and app permissions.

Nexus 5X features a soft plastic body and a 5.2-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1920×1080 at 423ppi. The phone runs on a 1.8GHz Snapdragon 808 CPU and 2GB of RAM. The snapper is of 12.3 megapixels with Google emphasizing the low-light capabilities of the camera to compensate for the low megapixel count.
