Google Nexus 6P by Huawei (was [Rumor] Huawei Nexus phone?)

Recommended Posts

That's what I've been hearing..that Project Fi devices seem to overwhelmingly prefer the Tmobile network over Sprint's.  I wonder why this is?

 

T-Mobile is super duper nifty shit.  Everybody knows that.

I have had my 6P rolling on Sprint since last night.  I am a SERO customer so I had to activate the phone via chat however it went super smooth.  After activation was successful I went ahead and did the factory image install of MDB08K as I wanted to start with the latest.  It was nice during setup that I was able to use my Nexus 6 backup to restore apps/icons to the original state.  The imprint feature is absolutely awesome.  It is in a great natural place to unlock the phone when you pick it up.  As for service it seems to be working as well as my Nexus 6.  Haven't really noticed too much of a signal degradiation.  Overall great phone for 1st day :)

Tmo is deploying here. So it will do LTE when it can find one of the few activated Tmo sites in the area. Otherwise it will fallback to iWireless EDGE or Verizon 1xRTT. Which is extensive here.

Is anyone using ambient display?  Can you tell me how it's supposed to work?

I don't believe it's working like I think it should.

If the display is off and I pick it up, shouldn't the display light up and show the lockscreen?

 

Thanks!

Ambient display works here.  If the phone is laying down with screen off and email or text comes in the display will come on as completely black with white text showing the start of the notification.  From there you can double tap to get into the app and review the notification.  Thats pretty much the basic premise.  You can turn it off by going to Settings > Display > Ambient Display.  By default it should be checked on.

 

Now what I have found out is I am using Nova Launcher and tried to setup the double tap to sleep option (you define a shortcut that starts an app to lock the screen).  However even if you have a fingerprint setup you still have to put in the secondary pin to unlock the phone.  Kind of a bummer going back to using the power button for simple things heh.

Slightly creepy

I live only a few miles from Patriot.

I am an expert on Kansas City geography.

 

AJ,

What are your thoughts on the possibility of the engineering screens showing more info in the future?

Is this a Huawei or Google issue? (Not showing any info)

It is almost certainly a Huawei issue.  All of the engineering screens vary somewhat from OEM to OEM.

I have noticed that my Engineering screens are only accessible when I am on VZW 1x or Tmo LTE. If I am on iWireless EDGE or Tmo WCDMA, I cannot access them.

Probably, the Project Fi SIM is locking you out.  There is some funky mojo going on inside that poly network SIM.

Was anyone able to use Android Beam to transfer things between phones? I can't get it to work at all...

My wife constantly tries to beam me photos and then curses up a storm at Android and Samsung when it doesn't work.....then says, oh hey, my NFC is off.  Thank goodness Google Photos has removed that need with link sharing.  So yeah, it happens, glad its working for you!

Well I bit the bullet and purchased the 64GB aluminium version from the play store!  :frantic:

 

I have never owned a nexus before. How will visual voicemail work? 

 

I guess I can do more research seeing as I have about 3 week wait time to get it.

I just purchased an 32gb nexus 6p and I'm a little nervous. Im not familiar with sim cards and seeing different sim cards being posted to use in this phone I'm not sure which one i need. Do i need to purchase one before hand or can I take the phone into a sprint store and be able to activate it there? Im sorry if this is a repeat question but Im just nervous about that and want to make sure ill be able to activate it. Btw this is my first non subsidized phone Ive bought so I'm not very familiar.

I have the Sprint nano sim card on order from this phone number:

 

888-882-4030

 

With this SKU:

 

CZ2144LWC

 

They didn't need the UPC but if you need it:

 

019962040146

 

Reference:

 

https://community.sprint.com/baw/com...exus-5x-and-6p

 

(the phone number is different. I tried the one in the link first and they transferred me to the number I listed above)

 

All in all it was pretty easy and there was no charge for the 3-5 business day shipping to my house.

      First Pixel device im somewhat excited about in a quite a while..

      The rumor mill has fully geared up, so it seems time for a thread in which the potential HTC-made 2016 Nexus phones can be discussed.
       
      Rumors suggest two phones: a 5" device codenamed Sailfish, and a larger device codenamed Marlin. Both are thought to be produced by HTC. [There's also a report that Google is making its own phone, without an OEM partner--along the lines of a Pixel phone--but that report has been largely discounted.]
       
      Android Police has claimed it knows with 8/10 certainty some specs of the smaller device--Sailfish:
      Manufactured by HTC 5" 1080p display (~440PPI) Quad-core 2.0GHz 64-bit processor (model unknown) 4GB RAM 2770mAh battery 32GB storage (unknown if multiple models will be available, or even if this is the base storage level) 12MP rear camera, 8MP front Rear-mounted fingerprint scanner USB-C port (bottom) Bottom-firing speaker or speakers (unknown if dual) Top-mounted headphone jack Bluetooth 4.2 Any thoughts on these devices? The last several Nexus devices have been Sprint compatible; is there any reason to think these won't be? Any hints in regulatory filings? How is HTC's radio performance, generally? Will Sprint sell them directly, and even if they do, will it still be preferable to buy directly from Google?

      Hopefully we can finally start seeing some user feedback. So far so good! it is without a doubt the best device ive owned!!!
    • By topdownat4
      Had not seen a thread for this yet, 
      I see some definite consumer advantages with Sprint's Network combined with TMob and Wi-fi.
      I have had many Nexus devices and I love my Nexus 6, although it is a bit big.
      The price is good for the service. ($20 / unl talk/txt, $10/gb)
       
      I hope the technical aspects work as they propose. I am a Google Voice Number user and love the "Any device" call capability and use it on my Tablet, Chromebook and phone. I rarely actually answer my Phone at the house. Answer the tablet or Chromebook.....
       
      I love Sprint's network, the upgrades they are putting forth and this Site, but if Project Fi works as advertised, it might lure me to sign on.....
       
      What are everyone's thoughts?

    • Band 5 LTE is being shut down to deploy NR in the CLR block. AT&T doesn't have free spectrum anywhere else. 
    • Well... They haven't been back to finish the tower. It's still looks the same today as it does when I took those pictures. According to someone from Reddit, which I shall take with a grain of salt, the crew made various safety violations on that tower and that they were probably kicked out of the market. So maybe that's why it remains unfinished? It does seem weird that they just up and left leaving wires just hanging. This is the photo I posted in /r/CellTowers   Side note: I noticed Band 5 LTE going away in some areas. A tower in Bittinger, MD previously had Band 5 LTE and now it no longer does. It still has band 2 and 17 and no aggregation, at least not with my phone. I think it used CA with my ZTE MF288 modem. The Band 2 has 15 MHz bandwidth and hits 80 Mbps no problem.
    • I finally got around to an actual test, in the same location, first with 5G enabled, 7.42 D/L and 0.07 U/l 45ms ping.  Then just a couple minutes later, after the reboot from switching to LTE/CDMA mode, 33.8 D/L and 6.31 U/L with a similar 44ms ping.  This was pretty far from the tower, but I've noticed similar differences in many locations.  Also, I have not had a verified connection to n71 in about 5 days, looking in the *#0011# screen, while a speedtest, or other data in use.
    • Another beta update to SignalCheck Pro is rolling out! Version 4.614b will appear on Google Play sometime over the next several hours. More 5G improvements, the accent color should be fixed, and several Samsung shortcut menus were added. Samsung users, please try all of the new shortcuts and let me know which ones are useful and what they lead to. Thank you!
    • No, unfortunately I haven't seen any useful 5G info from your phone (or anyone else's LG) yet. If you get a software update and happen to find 5G before they shut it down, please try reporting again! The accent color is still in its infancy and only appears on LTE for now. I've had it on my version of SCP for several weeks, initially I didn't think anyone else would like it. Figured I'd offer it up and see what the feedback was.
