I want to buy Nexus 5x, two options that are available (known names) are buying from project fi and cancelling after a while or buying from Newegg.  Price wise both come to almost same thanks to $25 credit through amex in Newegg.  But Newegg description says international version and warranty less.  However, I am planning to take this phone outside US, so not sure warranty matters or not. 

Is there any other downside of buying from Newegg? Any pointers to help make a decision greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

Don't get the international version (LG H791), according to Google it won't work with Project Fi. The North American Version (LG H790) works great overseas even getting LTE in many areas now at great rates from Project Fi. Good luck!
