So for those that are looking to upgrade to Android N, I thought it would be helpful to have a thread with all the bugs/issues we've found, so if anyone requires these apps to function they'd have a heads up. I'll keep the OP updated as people post new bugs and issues.

*Sorry guys, I no longer have my 6P so the below list is likely not up to date regarding the latest N developer previews*

Application Issues:
Alibaba - Doesn't work
Aliexpress - Doesn't work

SwiftKey - Text is bold, if you change display size it acts up, extremely laggy

Overall UI has severe lag at times, and gets quite hot

Snapchat won't login.
Gets pretty laggy every once in a while.
SwiftKey in particular gets reaaaally laggy.

Noticed it gets pretty laggy every now and then, especially when typing. Did a fresh install to stock and got the OTA preview. That's pretty much it, signal kills itself every now and then and the phone tends to get a little hot. Wouldn't recommend you use this as your daily.
