LG Nexus 5x android 7 update

The latest Android 7 update was released last Monday but is yet to reach my Nexus 5x. I'm wondering if o2 ( or any network) have any say in when this might arrive or is it purely down to google/LG. I thought nexus phones were unlocked and network free but I could be wrong. Could anyone shed any light. Thanks

According to this it has already started rolling out for your device @Anonymous but it 'could be weeks before you get it'   http://www.androidauthority.com/android-7-0-update-679175/

Re: LG Nexus 5x android 7 update

@Anonymous Android updates get released in stages. The networks have no control over them at all. From what I've been reading, most of the improvements from Marshmallow to Nougat are under the hood. Your phone will get the update eventually. Just be patient.

Purely down to Google when your phone gets it.

Ok thanks everybody. It's an improvement in battery life I am hoping for really as it's not great. Mind you, I was spoilt by the battery on my previous Sony z3 compact as it was brilliant.

You're not alone, I'm still waiting for Nougat on my 5x too, we just need a bit of patience. Hopefully the update will drop in the next couple of weeks.

Well the update arrived on Wednesday morning and I'm pleased. As hoped battery life is better , in fact much better than I could have hoped for ( so far anyway). After 10 hours out at work I'm around 20% up compared to before, which is not far off my old Sony performance now. Excellent!!

Re: LG Nexus 5x android 7 update

I'm using a 5x. Surprised you haven't got it yet but I'm sure it won't be long. On a separate note. Does the usb c lead click in to place on the 6p as mine keeps failing out with no click at all. The plug end though has a real positive click to it. I'm not sure it ever has clicked really. I've tried 3 different leads and swapped the ends over etc but with no real difference. Thanks.
