Google’s mobile virtual network – Project Fi is offering Nexus 5X owners on its network a new replacement option. Initially, users had complained about the Nexus 5X. Rather than offer a replacement unit, Google provided a $100 Google Play Store credit or a $53 cheque.
Android Police reports that Google is now offering owners of faulty Nexus 5Xs an Android One Moto X4 instead. However, those willing to change will still have to pay a $69 replacement fee. One user already reported that he got the Moto X4 as a replacement.
New users on the other hand will have to pay $299 for the Moto X4 instead of $399 or $324 as at two weeks ago.
The Moto X4 packs a 5.2” FHD display with Gorilla Glass 3. It is powered by a Snapdragon 630 processor, has 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage.
Motorola has included dual rear cameras (12MP + 8MP) on the Moto X4 and a 16MP front facing camera for selfies. Battery capacity is 3000mAh with support for Motorola’s 15W TurboPower fast charging. The Moto X4 also has an IP68-rating making it fully waterproof.
