The issue of phones backside overheating is the same across all other phones running the Snapdragon 810 chip.
AnonD-559398, 12 Jul 2016I am having the dilemma I think I am going with OP3 because of the camera quality, Dash Char... morebare in mind, op3 do have shorter battery performance compare to other, i mean a comparison with all those competitor phone in terms of those standby time, calling time, browsing time, gaming time. OP3 do have dash charging is indeed a great advantage, but bear in mind that, every phone's battery do have a life span as the charge cycle increase, the performance of the battery will deteriorate and you will have a shorter standby time. Why don't you go for a phone that charge longer(most of the flagship phone or future flagship phone that having qualcomm chips do have fast charge 3.0), and last longer than OP3.
rose, 11 Jul 2016which is best 1+3/nexus 6p? I went with the nexus. It should be quicker and has better specs. The nexus is also large phone and you may or may not want that.
I've recently bought Nexus 6p but it heats up a lot specially when I use camera or play a game, did I receive a faulty piece of nexus 6p? or it's normal?

I am having the dilemma
I think I am going with OP3 because of the camera quality, Dash Charge, and Insane RAM for the price. Yes the 6P does have a bigger battery but the dash charge in OP3 can bump you up to 60% in 30 mins.
Started with Google with the Nexus 5, which was a great phone with a small price tag. The to the Nexus 6 which was $$$ but I wanted the newest updated "now" and loved the screen size for streaming my TiVo anywhere. I still use it in the house using all the apps and functions over wifi but without a sim. Its great to use as a backup when you work from home. I recently purchased the Nexus 6P after much investigation into the 810 V2.1 to see about overheating, and to the claims that it bends easily. Both are false with my use. No overheating after 4 hours of continuous video play at 1080p. It was just warm to the touch. I purchased the official Nexus case from Google which is perfect in my opinion. Slim and easy to handle without slippage. I have never dropped or broke a device in my lifetime. I treat it like something you paid so much $$ for the way it should be handled. I'm 43 y/o started out on BB's provided by Company but Google has come a long way. The Nexus 6P is a great phone IF, you do not need large amounts of storage on the device and can stream from the cloud or home NAS, you do not mind taking pics/vids using a tripod seeing no OIS and you don't mind changing all your chargers to usb type C 24 pin. If you can handle that then this phone may be great for you. Running dev Nougat on Nexus 6 and the changes that will come to the Nexus 6P will make it more exciting and extend the usability. Enough rambling on rose...
This phone is amazing, even though it's old it can still keep up with some of the best phones of 2016; my only complaint is the Bluetooth doesn't work for sharing files. But I think it's just a software bug. Anyways I'd give this phone a 10/10 even with the Bluetooth problem.
Good , charging is v fast of Nexus 6p Nd I love the camera Nd finger print scanner
Issam hammoudi, 04 Jul 2016Wait for the new nexus Every year or so there would be a new nexus. That doesnt mean that old one is obsolete at least not in the case of nexus series. As you will be up to date for a long time. If you can wait then buy the new one or nexus 6p is good enough.
P.s- nexus 6p is not that old. Its still the beast in the land of android.

Then it would come different and positive.
Anonymous, 30 Jun 2016please tell me if this phone's worth buying for?Wait for the new nexus
Its one of the best Nexus product ever made. They are not heating issues even if you play for longer durations.Display is good. Camera is also good,but the only thing that it lacks is various manual controls. Battery life is good. Lasts me whole day when i play,text,see movies ,listen music. Doze is good & with new improved doze 2.0 in Andriod N battery life is better. Sound quality is also good. Must buy phone!!

I perplexed by all the rave reviews. I've had this phone since it came out and I'm on Google Fi. That may be part of the problem. The one good thing about the phone is Google does update it montly. Other than that I give the Phone a C+ at best. My first stock Android phone but I find it lacks refinement. Build quality so so. Had an HTC prior to this phone and preferred it. Bought this phone so that I could go on Fi. Service is fair. Price is good. Yet, not sure it's worth the trade off in quality of cell calls. Everyday I deal with phone issues. Wifi calling is half baked IMO. Calls dropped, Caller hears me, I can't hear them, echo chamber, etc. Don't believe all the superlatives. Doubt I'll still have this phone in 6 months. Too many hassles.
