    Hello, I got my Nexus 5X back in September.

    My phone is on the latest security patch on Androind 7.1.2.
    Just recently it has started bootlooping. I would use my phone, it would crash and then boot. Upon boot, before it gets to the OS, it then crashes and attempts to boot again.

    This is my primary phone so I am looking for a fix. I even reset my phone yet the problem still exists.

    Is there a way I could fix it without sending it to LG for repair? Have you had similar experiences with the Nexus 5X?

    Either your hardware is faulty
    Either your software is faulty in which case i recommand you to flash it,that's your best bet

    Wouldn't flashing void the warranty?

    Good idea, given that almost anything you could try to do to fix it (and probably fail because it seems a hw problem to me) may void the warranty, better just plug your SIM card into a cheapophone and use that as your main until your Nexus 5X comes back from service.

    My phone has been working properly in the past hour. I forgot to mention that it happened last night. This morning I tried resetting my phone and the problem was still present until now. I'll update you later if it happens again.
