2-3 weeks ago I sat on my Nexus 6P while getting in the car. The phone bent badly, it was in a weird C twisted shape, but it did not crack or broke, just stayed bent. I made calls from it like that, so it was fully functional. Bought the silver aluminium housing online, and after it arrived, I straightened it properly, changed the housing(easier then I thought), and now I have a personalized 6P, as it was originally black, and now only the finger-sensor, side-buttons, sim-tray and camera visor are black, rest of the housing is the silver metal one. It looks awesome and is fully functional, been abusing it with games since. Just an advice: you need to peel the NFC antenna from the original housing and slap it on the new one, my NFC works fine. One thing is for sure: when I upgrade, I'm not selling this one, I'm keeping it for back-up. Thanks for reading, enjoy your 6P!

I use nexus mostly, the 2 things that will come ahead are: optimisation, somehow the stock android works better with google maps and anything google related, and second, the stereo huge speakers, for me have become a drug, i really enjoy them. Not even mentioning the larger screen. On the Lg g5's side, if you get the audio module, you have an everyday bliss commuting or w/e, as long as you have a good pair of headphones on your years; this can become addictong too, but I chose to have just one addiction, so i passed the G5 to my wife. The wide-angle camera is surprisingly handy, allowing many interesting shots to be taken. I also own a dslr, so it was fun for me. Get both, stay away fromt he G6(nothing interesting) or the S8/S8+(overpriced). The lifespan is 2 years for either phone, then it starts to slowly fade away, as newer model come out. So investing into an S8 is wasted money, for me. Unless you need to brag occasionally, passing off as a frustrated compensator. So yeah, have fun:)

I sent it in to Huawei twice for this problem and twice they returned it, and I still have the same problem! Now they are telling me to send it in a third time, because they will not replace my phone and they will not give me my money back! My advice is to stay away from Huawei products!

Just thought I should add my experience yet with the phone. I've owned this phone for 8 months now and I loved it, the camera, battery life screen speed, everything! Except it's maybe a little too big and slippery in the hands without a case.
Right now, it's in a bootloop, google stuck forever, can't launch recovery and from what I searched on the internet, it would be hardware related and that's what my local cell repair shop tells me after diagnosis.
I'va had the 10-15% battery shutdown happening to me a couple times in the last month.
Winter Greene, 05 Jun 2017I think it's still worth it in 2017. Considering that it's now one of the budget phone options... moreHave you applied a case for it? Have you dropped it and still working? I'm more concerned about the battery dying below 15% or radios (such as bluetooth or wifi) playing up or dead pixels on the screen.

Considering that it's now one of the budget phone options out in the market. There's no proven water resistance rating on this phone so I suggest you better stay away from the elements. As for the bootloops? Haven't experienced it yet. And for the connection being messy at times, that too, I haven't experienced yet. I just got my Nexus 6P yesterday and it's freaking awesome
I'm entertaining the thought of getting a Nexus 6P this 2017. I understand updates will still be that quick and supported by 2018 but I have some questions:
1. Is it true the 6P has some water-resistant powers that it's considered safe to use during light rain or a spill of water or soda?
2. I heard that a "bug" causes the phone to crash or turn off unexpectedly when the battery dips below 10%?
3. Is it also true the wifi and bluetooth can sometimes be erratic due to a bug?
Need your comments please. Cheers.
Currently in a class action lawsuit for rebooting randomly especially when battery reaches 10%.
Anonymous, 31 May 2017Battery is worse not even last for 2 hrs it's just 13 months back I purchasedTry clearing cache in recovery mode. And use greenify to turn off apps which are continuously syncing through internet that you don't often use.
Or do a hard reset. It is the last resort.
Great phone. Runs fast, always has the latest Android, easy to use fingerprint ID thingie... not much to not like. Oh, I bought it a year ago and paid $400 when the competition were what, $750?
One of the sweetest things is that it will run on Fi Network (Google). Dropped my monthly bill to less than $30, one phone, one user. If I were looking for a nice phone now, this would be considered.
