Google Project Fi makes amends with faulty Nexus 5X, offers sweet Moto X4 exchange deal you simply can’t refuseGoogle Official Blog (screen-shot)

Ever since the launch of the Nexus 5X in 2015, it has been under constant criticism from customers and critics alike for its tendency to go in to random reboots and yet Google's flagship Project Fi went ahead by offering Nexus 5X contracts with lucrative data plans to lure consumers, but as it happens, several people faced bootloop issues.

The company later offered to give new Nexus 5X and yet they too, over time began to show similar bugging issues. Then, Project Fi offered to compensate the affected customers with $100 Google store credit (e-money) or else if they wanted direct money transfer to their account, they had to settle for $53 hand-out cheques.

If not, consumers were told to go for the new Nexus 5X models. Many saw this has an unfair practice considering the fact that the device was worth $350 and compensation was not even half of its cost, and who would, after facing such annoying issues wish to buy the same device again?

Now, it looks like, Google Project Fi has run out of stocks to re-issue new LG phones and is apparently offering Motorola Moto X4 Android One instead, Android Police reported.

However, the customer has to pay an additional $69 to get the new Motorola Moto X4 Android One series. Considering the features of the phone, it's a good deal and consumers will be happy to upgrade to the time-tested Motorola brand.
