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


Recommended Posts

It connects back to LTE sometimes. Hit or miss. It will eventually move back to lte after a few minutes on 3G but only to B25 where it parks for another 5 minutes before switching to B41.

 

I live 300 yards from a B41 site.

connects back to LTE for me. wonder if it's a market deal? i am in a samsung market.

It's not market ,because my nexus 5 and LG G3 work just fine. I don't think this is a showstopper for me , just a minor annoyance at the moment . I don't get a lot of calls.

On Signal Check Pro, you can tell if you're connected to second carrier by number 2 after b41.  Two carriers are required for CA, but that still won't tell you if you're on CA.

 

I did a speed test yesterday with Sensorly/Signal Check Pro and I had the B41(2). I was getting 30+ down. I thought that little 2 was an indication that I was on CA :/

 

Either way, I did more tests around town (with my new N6P) and a lot of the towers seem to be much much faster. Some locations had 50+ down! :o

 

Last time I checked tower speed has been over a year so a lot must have changed in my area!

The 2 only indicates a second carrier is present, not necessarily 2 carriers aggregated.

I got my rma nexus 6p Frost from Google, Friday afternoon. It has the same build date as the one I'm replacing,10/25. The one I got two days before had a build date of 10/26, and should not have left the factory of how poor condition it was. I kind of wish I had activated it, but didn't want to bother support with a device I knew I wasn't going to keep after observed the condition. I did put my active csim into the new device to check if a whitelisted device over Sprint could be activated with a csim. But it was not to be! Device showed Sim lock when attempting to authenticate over the network in initial setup.

 

I noticed the two 10/25 date Nexus 6p Frost devices have Samsung memory chips. While the 10/26 had Toshiba chip installed. Both were using hynix ddr4 ram. This new device is exhibiting the same network connection “lag”, is how I'll describe it after I come off a call. Connects to 3g then wait a few beats, to a min or so connects to LTE and remains connected as has been observed by others. Strong performer once it latches onto network. This is with a separate new csim I had on hand. This one actually has slightly better build than the original one I received as well, so I will be keeping the newer and sending the the original order back.

 

From reading others experiences on other forums I hope they get the quality control in check. As this is a really nice device and one shouldn't have to hope for a pristine looking device out the box when paying out the pocket for a new from factory. Fortunately Google is good with replacement if there are issues. But unnecessary cost that can be avoided with quality control check before final boxing.

If you're looking for cables, here's a good way to go about it:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/pdp/profile/A25GROL6KJV3QG/ref=cm_cr_rdp_pdp

 

Look at all the reviews the Google guy wrote... anything with 5 stars, is a buy... anything with 2 stars... avoid..

You definitely have a thing for cables.

I've found the supplied cable has been the only cable necessary so far. That does include drives over 3 hours running GPS and streaming/podcasts simultaneously.

 

Prospective buyers:

You don't HAVE to sink a bunch of dough on new cables.

Holy moly!  It was an act of congress, but MasterCard finally approved my claim!

 

gallery_1_23_64457.png

 

They initially insisted that I get it repaired and get a repair estimate.  I explained several times and ways that there was no way to repair it, as repair parts were not available on the market.  And didn't know if parts would ever be available commercially.  I ended up having to get a letter from a local repair store and then get a letter from Huawei.  I uploaded the last one this morning and final approval in four hours.  

 

I don't know how long it will take to get my check, but glad to have that behind me.  It is still pretty amazing to me that my MasterCard Debit card ended up having this protection.  Thanks to runagun for suggesting I check.  I probably wouldn't have without the suggestion.  I didn't think debit cards came with protections.

 

Now I don't even know if I want a Nexus 6P to replace it.  I may get something else.  :lol:

Hot diggy dog man! That is amazing and awesome! Thank goodness you have a credit card company that will help you in this. Too bad Google and Huawei wouldn't fix it even though they should at least offer a repair for some some $$$. Pretty damn low of them!

That is awesome! I love my credit card protection from Wells Fargo and my buyer protection from my Mastercard. Combining the two has worked out really great for me.

I always set my devices wifi advance setting to turn off wifi during sleep UNLESS plugged in.  I have noticed that wifi will stay on regardless on my Nexus 6P.  I have wifi scanning off and location services and no apps that could be automatically forcing it to stay on.  I think it may be a bug but wanted to find out what others are experiencing.

 

I did post this in the Google Nexus forum/help community but I figured I'd bring it up in here as I don't think I'm alone but could be... :)

 

Thanks

We brought this up in the beta/preview but the Google engineers always defended themselves and blamed other factors such as the phone or needing a fresh install, etc. It was kind of sad to see their pushback.

Well dang, if it doesn't work, it doesn't work... that sucks. I'll keep bringing it up in the forum over there I guess.  It is really annoying. 

 

Thanks for the relpy

Are you suggesting that being connected to distant LTE tower for data takes up less battery than a Wi-Fi spot a few feet away?  I don't buy it.  Sending any kind of signal over greater distance will require more power.  I'm siding with Google here.

      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!!!

      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?
