Please enlighten us what problems are you experiencing. Are you not getting the monthly updates? I received the Feb update last week

I really hope Android 6.1 comes sooner than later, there are so many bugs in 6.0.1, especially with Google now.

Gmail app doesn't notify you of new emails unless you open it (new bug I've been having recently, still have the problem after resetting the phone)

 

Google now says the mobile is locked even though it's connected to a trusted bluetooth device.

 

 

 

Only ones that come to mind at the moment there's a few more though, not really happy with the phone, I bought it hoping I would have less problems than your average Samsung.

Interesting. My friend has decided that while she is impressed with how far Android has come since she last owned one, she will be going back to iPhone, likely on the next release.

 

She's mentioned a couple of little issues, and the biggest one though is that she still hasn't been able to get used to the size (and worries she will break it, after another friend of mine did). 

 

 

 

I'm in two minds- not sure I'd buy another Nexus, particularly if its made by Huawei. the QC has been all over the place.
on the other hand, I do really like Android and where it's going... but just needs another year or two before I go there again, I think.

merve0o0: Has anyone had any dealings with 2D returning a 6P for bending.

Mine is pretty badly bent at the buttons.


No dealings here sorry, but that sucks. Am interested to know how you bent though?... Kept mine in my front pocket since day one and it hasn't bent....


I would also like to know. I've only put mine in my front pocket I always make sure its the only thing in that pocket. I don't wear right pants. I got mine as part of the geekzone offer so had it since day one. I have had a spigen case on it for most of that time.

I like to think that I'm kind to my devices as I had my iPhone 4 for 3-4 years and very rarely had a case on it and had no damage. I also never had a case in my HTC One M7, also caseless, and the only damage was when it slipped out of my pocket once getting out of the car.

I went into the 2D kiosk in the Palm's today as I'm on holiday. At first he tried to day it was my tempered glass screen protector that caused it. I was then able to show him that the bezel is distorted and popped out in a few places. He said to see my local store when I get home and he would think it would warrant a replacement. I did tell him that Google have acknowledged the problem and are replacing handsets bought direct from them.

 

 

 

Hey merve0o0, I'm curious how you got on with 2degrees regarding this issue.

 

I removed my 6P from its case on the weekend and noticed the slight kink in the aluminum next to the volume rocker as well, upon close inspection it seems like that whole side of the phone's body is slightly curved. After a little goggling I found a few reddit threads with others having the same issue and seems like quite a few of the affected phones have been sent for RMA and replaced via google. 

 

My phones story sounds the same as yours, its lived in a spigen case its whole life, well looked after, always kept in pocket on its own and never dropped. Ill try and get some photos later on tonight when I can borrow someone else's phone.

 

Has anyone else here had this issue since merve0o0 mentioned it?

Has anyone recieved the update for March? It's supposed to have a bunch of improvements that make the 6p work better. Nothing on mine, and it's been a few days at least since they were rolled out by Google.
