Finch: Thanks for the replies regarding the above questions...

Another question, probably more Android 6.0 related but..

Why is there no option to restart the device? Since I started using the 6P, the only option is Shut down.


That's always been the case with Nexus phones, at least for the N4, 5 and now 6P that I've had! It's part of the vanilla nature of it, it would be nice but not a huge loss in reality

Android doesn't have a restart option. I think you can enable one via developer options, but don't quite me on that.

My 6P arrived yesterday. Doing from the M7 this thing is huge. Almost seems a similar jump in size from iPhone 4 to M7.

So far I seem to have been lucky I don't have the issues people are complaining about. My speakers seem to both be the same volume. My headphone jack is plenty loud enough, it's uncomfortably loud at 1/2 volume with my Ostry KC06a ear phones.

There is a couple of small things though. The screen does have a bit more colour shift/rainbow effect then I am used to but this is my first oled screen. The plastic cover on the bottom rear of the phone covering the screws is a slightly different shade of black, it's slightly grey. And there is a spot on the back that the dye did not take but it's tiny.

I think he means nexus phones, but I could be wrong. Would like to have a restart option, but not exactly a deal breaker.

HTC don't run pure Android. Android, as provided by Google, for Nexus devices doesn't have a restart option.

It's been like that for a while now. It's only for the 6P and 5X, other products seen to work fine.

OK I'm unsure if I'm having a dumb moment or my phone is bugged.

I'm trying to set up my alarms but I can't get an alarm to be set to go off on Mon-Fri. When I click the repeat button I get the days of the week showing. I would have thought I would just select the days I want but I'm unable to. Sometimes selecting Monday highlights Tuesday etc.

Am I doing it wrong or is it broke?

I got the case straight from Google.
It's the Adopted transparent case.
Very nice fit.
