How to enter recovery mode on Google Nexus 5X [Guide]

Google-Nexus-5X-2 [1]If your Google Nexus 5X is not working well and you cannot find a simple solution to your seemingly complex problem, you can always access the dedicated recovery bootable partition and regain control of your device. There are typically three things we can achieve from within the recovery mode on Google Nexus 5X handsets: wiping the cache partition, wiping the data/factory resetting the device and applying updates. Believe it or not, applying updates is an effective way to get rid of many soft-brick related symptoms on a device to do with your software. Wiping the cache partition is effective if you have minor problems that could be directly cache-related and wiping the data and applying a full factory reset is what to do when you cannot find a solution any other way.

Furthermore, some people want to apply the Google Nexus 5X factory reset to wipe the data and return the device back the way it was out of the box. As you can tell, that makes the factory reset option convenient for those with technical-related issues and for those who just want to wipe the device clean and star fresh.
