Received my 6P yesterday and love it. I just wish them official microfiber cases were in stock. Settled with a cheap one off Amazon for the time being. sad-smiley-002.gif

Shame that Google Fi's reception at my workplace is trash but that's a Sprint & T-Mobile issue here. I guess I'll continue with Straight Talk on ATT, LTE at my desk. biggrin.gif

I dealt with their support for 3 weeks (flashing new firmware straight from them a total of eight times) and they finally told me sorry, we can't help. I don't do anything to my phone at all. It's completely stock like it came from the factory. They delete posts like mine from the official forums, but when you post on reddit about the issue, I got responses from about 60+ people with the exact same issue, but they refuse to say it's a OPO issue.

Another problem is if I hold the phone a certain way, the person I am talking to cannot hear me at all. This has been this way the entire time. If I try to hold the phone with my shoulder and use my hands for something else, the person I am talking to can't hear me. It sounds like I'm in a tunnel. When I do the same thing with my wifes iPhone (was my old phone before I "upgraded" to the OPO) I have zero problems. Right now I am borrowing a buddies Note 4 (he upgraded to the Note 5 and let me use this while my N6P comes in) and I have no issues with holding with my shoulder, so I am pretty sure it's something with the phone, not my shoulder.

Mainly, I am tired about the not getting notifications when my WiFi is turned on.

I had the exact same problem with my Oneplus One. I could never figure out why in my house I would lose signal (only place I connected to WiFi). I just put two and two together. Regardless of that issue it was one of my most favorite phone I have ever owned, I bought it in July of 2014 and retired it in September. Currently have a Oneplus 2 and also enjoy the phone a lot aswell.

They still haven't fixed it yet

That's a bit of an overstatement. It does support T Mobile LTE, just not the 12 band (which is newish) and VoLTE. I have the nexus 5 which does not support band 12 and receive T Mobile LTE fine, therefore there are compatible T mobile LTE bands.

Shocking, if you bend something, it will eventually break.

It really is absurd that people put these phones through "torture" tests. Folks, you aren't in a freaking combat zone doing ninja moves in a burning building. If you treat a piece of electronics like crap it will break or get damaged. I, who have done some pretty awful things to my phone, have yet to shatter a screen or break any of my phones. My nexus 5 is going on 19 months and I have dropped it in excess of 50 times and it has yet to break. I sometimes wonder if people are literally fastball throwing their phones up against a wall.

Was about to get "next" Nexus, but figured out is made by Huawei and drabbed GS6edge... Pretty happy, but not without cons: 2k res it too much for hardware sometimes, and that memory leak...

I'm not sure if this is some sort of statement of nationalism or just our general lack of knowledge about Huawei and their quality. Huawei makes premium phones. Many of them very very good.

Have you never wondered why cyanogen ROM files are like 100-200MB while stock images are usually 2GB+? It's certainly not "LG health" or "Samsung Remote" plus a few other apps. You should really take a look at all the crap that goes on with titanium backup then compare it to an AOSP ROM.

yeah, same, I've never broken a phone in my life, and i treat them like crap, never put cases on them, etc.
