Sheagae: What glass screen protectors have people purchased and like?


A couple of us are rocking the Skinomi Tech Glass protector. Fits great and works well with my Google case. I also have a couple of intelliarmor glass protectors to use. Waiting for them to do an edge to edge one though, because their current model has quite a gap to the phones edge and a huge cutout for the bottom speaker.

It's not really out of stock... They're just having issues with their protectors sticking in all the corners. People were finding that their cases were also lifting the screen protectors at the edges as well. Intelliarmor are working on it and they will replace your current non edge to edge with a new edge to edge when they are ready.

That sucks.... Personally didn't find the sticking issue with their protector, BUT the phone is difficult to see in sunlight due to micro scratches on their tempered glass. These scratches do not exist with the Spigen brand which are however a lot more expensive.

nakedmolerat: Anyone getting skin for their 6P?

I ended up grabbing a carbonfibre black one to put on my Graphite one. Hopefully it looks as good as the renders.

Ok I like the new phone, however there are some things that are driving me crazy and I am too busy to spent a lot of time working on them right now. 

There is no inbuilt mail app like there was with my galaxy so I downloaded nine. It says it will sync calendar and contacts but it doesn't appear the contacts are in my contacts list. Email is syncing ok. 

I do love the fingerprint scanner, best thing. 

Screenshots don't go to the gallery app, so I don't know where to find them after a few minutes, they aren't in the pictures app either. 

I thought my Galaxy s6 was laggy but this phone isn't coping with Hay Day or Clash of Clans nearly as well. 

I may switch back if I can't get the software to work the way I like it a little better, accepting expressions of interest on a 5 day old Nexus 6P 32GB Aluminium bought in Australia.

Do these screen protectors (http://www.intelliarmor.com/intelliglass-nexus-6p-the-smarter-real-glass-screen-protector.html) not go right to the edge of the screen? I have ordered one which hasn't arrived yet

If anyone is interested in purchasing an NZ new 6P Graphite 64GB, only a week old, purchased on the 22nd Nov.

Unfortunately my car is incredibly picky with its bluetooth, and will only work with certain models of phone - it hasn't worked with the 6P or the S6 Edge+ that I had.

ooking at $1080 - which comes with a Spigen Thin Fit case, new pair on sennheiser headphones, and of course the phone which is in like-new condition.

Receipt provided as well for NZ warranty. Disappointed to be getting rid of it, but unfortunately I can't deal with my cars builtin bluetooth not working with my phone when traveling, and it's not as simple as replacing the head unit.
At least I'll still get to play with my flatmates' 6P!

Otherwise, will return for a store credit from NL, but would prefer the cash back.

PM me in interested. :)

It's a Nissan Teana - You jest, but the thought did cross my mind. Not exactly a financially responsible option though. 
Built in OEM bluetooth - unfortunately after market head units for this vehicle are either a. over $1000 for some unbranded junk, or b. I lose my air conditioning controls, steering wheel controls and reversing camera - blame their terrible all-in-one system. had I known the PITA it would be to replace, I'd have looked at a different vehicle probably.

So, getting rid of the phone is the option I'm going for at this stage :\

@n95 The tgsp I ordered from intelliarmor doesn't go edge to edge. Their support staff are saying that if you want the edge to edge option but order the case friendly option, they will send out codes for the edge to edge option when the issues with it are sorted and its back in production.

Anyone having an issue with the stock Contacts app not letting you change the account (Exchange, gmail, etc) when adding a new contact? What I mean is that when adding a non-work friend's phone number I want to add them as a Google contact, not one of my work Exchange contacts.

For some reason mine is locked to one of my Exchange accounts, despite my Google/Gmail contacts syncing correctly...

Yes I am really struggling getting my contacts on this phone, it's really starting to annoy the hell out of me. 

Anyone know if the S6 Mail app can somehow be installed on my 6P?
