Read up on your preferred Android website, they've probably got a suitable walkthrough. Just make sure your OS is loading the correct device driver.

merve0o0: been loving the phone. Sadly I just noticed that the button side now has a bend in it. its not major and I will wait to see if it get worse before seeing about getting it replaced. 

I did see on the 6p reddit that a google support team member has said that they are talking with huawei about the bending issue. 


How do you think it got bent? I don't feel comfortable with this phone in my jeans pocket being so much bigger than my last phone. Does feel like it might get bent sitting down with it in my pocket

Invest in loose fitting jeans and the problem is solved.

If your pockets are so tight they apply pressure to their contents, you may need a (man)purse. Luckily my work pants have a calf pocket that I can comfortably carry a N6p in.

I have no idea. I dont wear skinny jeans, I don't wear jeans at all for that matter, I just wear dickies/style shorts. I was able to bend it back with a very light press on the button area.

I wasnt going to worry about returning it but I got some Jaybird x2's and the Bluetooth drops out constantly. I tried it with my M7 no issues at all so its not the headphones.

@Kopkiwi Try the "Nexus Root Toolkit", I've used it on multiple Nexus' over the years and it's always worked great. No need to muck around getting the Android SDK installed.

The note 5 is amazing. Installed venom ROM and the thing just flies. Zero lag and with spacex kernel the battery life is fantastic.

The s-pen features are superb. As much as I enjoyed the nexus 6p, the note 5 is another step up.

have a mate looking at either or so was interested in comparison. I was a tad curious myself as now that you can't change battery or use ext SD I'm looking at other options tghe S6 battery life is rubbish but haven't done custom rom yet. 

6P is a nice looking phone but looks aren't that important but its tempting

another step up, but two steps down courtesy of touch wizz! Occassionally I have a play on my partner's S6 just to remind myself just how horrible it is. I'll take pure android any day over touch wizz, even if it means dispensing with the s-pen.

I hate touchwiz to the extreme I'll never buy another samsung, but I still can't understand what you're trying to say.
