The gullibility of people regarding these bend tests is truly sad. You just don't get it. Who didn't predict that there would be a stupid bend test of this phone as soon as everyone heard it would be made all metal? I know I did. This dude that conducted these tests knows what he's doing, because he builds and disassembles phones for a living. So, of course he's gonna know where a phone's weak points are. When you apply just enough pressure to the known weak points of a phone, of course it'll snap.
First of all, in test 1, he took an open flame to an aluminum frame. Anyone who knows science knows that aluminum is a malleable metal, hence why there's something called aluminum foil. In test 2, where he tried to be slick and open up a sealed box on camera, I guarantee that before he even did test number 1 on camera, he had time to inspect the device for its weak points. He knew that there would be controversy after test 1, and he knew that those of us that are less stupid would criticize his method of burning a metal phone to prove a point. That's why he did the second test on camera, by opening a sealed box.
Trust and believe he knew the phone's weak points after handling the first device, before he ever filmed that first stupid test. It was his way of generating controversy, and getting views on his channel, after the guy from Unbox Therapy got so much attention for doing the iPhone bend test last year. This guy thought he'd do the same, and try to get himself noticed. The more views his channel gets, the more comments he gets, the more he gets paid. The average person who uses this phone won't be doing anything intentionally to cause it to bend. If you do, you're dumb. If you have the phone, just enjoy it, and don't fall prey to ridiculous propaganda.
Ordered mine direct from Huawei on 10/27, scheduled for delivery by the end of the month. Looking forward to it.
John , 06 Nov 2015Which is the best nexus 6p vs moto x vs one plus 2. Is the heating issue of 810 resolved It is mission impossible to get the heating issue resolve.
Let me tell you, if you have any doubts about this phone, clear them.
There is really not much bad I can say about it. I haven't really found the lack of OIS a problem, and it's worth every cent.
The phone feels great in the hand, coming from a 6 Plus, which was just a blown up iPhone 6, there was some real thought into this phone being a one-handed phone, even for my small hands.
Oh and the display... mwah... I mean dang... Full brightness is just ridiculous and probably wouldn't make a dent in the battery. I've never gone below 60% due to those sweet, sweet, 3450mAh.
Quick charging is great, front facing speakers are great, camera is great, Android 6.0 is great. 10/10 Huawei.

2. Experiences may vary. I ordered mine on 11/4 with two-day shipping, and it shipped out today with an estimated delivery date of 11/10. I'd say it's very likely that you would, but if you're unsure, the expedited shipping isn't a big deal compared to the cost of the phone.
3. Depends on your state, I believe. I live in a state with no sales tax, so I just paid the $499 plus the two-day shipping cost. Standard shipping is a bit slower, but it's free. I believe they charge sales tax based on the billing address for the card you use, not the shipping address, but I could be wrong.

Hey guys i want to get an Nexus 6p through my friend in Ithaca, New York.
What's the best method to get it?
Will it be delivered by the end of November if i order today?
and is there any tax or cost other than the $499?
GSMarena where on earth is the review for this phone? At least a first impressions or something to let us know you aren't trolling considering you reviewed the A9 already.
I went along with other reviews off other sites and decided to order it. Coming from an iPhone 6 to the Nexus 6P all I can say is that while the 6 was a solid phone, it's great to be back with Android with the 6P and Marshmallow.
As for people freaking out about bendgate 2.0, if you treat your phone like you would with your other electronics (laptops, tablets, etc) you should have 0 concern. If you feel the need to put the phone in your back pocket and be able to sit down what's wrong with you

Turns out you guys have swallowed the bitter pill and downplayed the situation. It isn't even half as bad as #Bendgate last year (even though the 6+ was much sturdier). It's actually really funny.
Enjoy your flimsy 6Ps! Of course, it'll bend only if you try to bend it. But hey, we told you that last year...
AnonD-161301, 01 Nov 2015@GSMarena: still no full review of Nexus 6P ?
its disappointingly very late..Very very nice

These tests dont prove anything. " if you are trying to bend something, it will bend"
No one in their sane mind will bend their phone like this in real life. Everyday use isn't going to make a "bend". See other videos also.
Been using the 6P for a couple of weeks or so now, got mine on the 26th Oct (not sure the official release date in UK?).
Great upgrade from the Nexus 5 I had for 2 years. With regards to build quality, I'd have to try quite hard to bend it - I'm sure I would but I'd have to purposely do it and use significant force. So, very very unlikely to bend in your pocket. I really appreciate the build quality, feels like an iPhone to hold - which is genuinely a compliment from an Android fan.
I thought the Nexus 5 updated to 6.0 was fast but the 6P is lightening. Got used to the large display in hours. Camera is amazing, possibly not as good as the G4, massive step up from the 5 though. Stereo speakers amazing. AMOLED screen amazing. Fast charge amazing. Battery life isn't as good as the updated Nexus 5 however I've had a maximum of a day and half and as little as 12 hours. It'll do for me.
I was waiting for gsmarena's review before purchasing but obviously didn't need it in the end.
i was a big fan of huwaei nexus 6p but after watching bend test in youtube i am very much disspointed whoever has purchased it did they find this problem
For those who are saying that it bends, do you own one? Have you tried it yourself? I got mine this morning, and the first thing I did -- before spending time setting it up, the case the "it will bend" folks were right -- was to see if it would bend. IT DOES NOT! That darn phone is very solid. Now, this is the first Huawei phone I own, and I'm not totally sold, yet. My last phones were Samsung S5, Asus Zenfone 2, and others. The Asus is fairly new, and I have dropped it a few time. There is no dents or scratches. The Samsung did break on the first drop. I'll see how it turns out. But, it doesn't bend at all.
Sam, 02 Nov 2015Really!!!!!

Except for the size nexus 6P is better than 5X... moreMate S and P8 is just the phone with midrange hardware but sell at flagship price only!
