    Post Question 02 Physical SIM Signal Dropping

    I'll try getting a new SIM. It hasn't happened on my previous phone with same SIM. But as you say might have damaged SIM during swap. It's weird it does work for a bit though. But seemingly if I lose signal it doesn't reconnect. My voda esim behaves as you'd expect. Someone I know on giff...

    With this feature only just rolling out in the UK I think they're probably still enabling it etc at the server end. It'll likely just start working soon. Fingers crossed for everyone!

    I have my Vodafone esim in my 6pro and the signal is fine on that no problems at all 4/5g pickup is good etc. But my physical 02 work SIM (not on a 5g plan) - the signal sometimes disappears to the point it says no service and won't come back until I eventually reboot. Any one else with this...

    I'm able to use my screen perfectly no problems! I've always used plastic film protectors - usually a cheap multipack - so I can have several tries at getting it right!

    Got my orzly tgsp today. I'm very impressed. Fits nicely almost edge to edge. The cut outs are perfect - sensor cutout is a bit big. No cut out for front camera, which I prefer. Fitted easily enough. I had to remove it once due to a pesky bit of dust but it went back on fine. Slight...

    Thanks for this works great. Can see why it's a hidden mode though, the implementation is a bit of a mess isn't it? Pretty glitchy. I had a s6 before and this feature was very well done by Samsung.

    Post Charging Stops Overnight

    I'm glad its not just me who finds this a bit odd. I used the same charger with my nexus 5x, galaxy s6 and nexus 4 and always found the phone at 100% in the morning. The 6p obviously works differently.

    Post Complaints/Praises so far?

    I'm the same as the OP in the sense I came to the 6p after 6 frustrating months with the s6. The screen, camera size and design of the s6 is pretty amazing. Excellent in all regards. But the software... Awful. Multitasking was impossible and touchwiz just annoyed me. The 6p software is pure...

    Post Nexus 6P Camera

    Coming from an S6 I can confirm the camera on the 6p is good but not great in comparison. If I was coming from any previous nexus I'd probably be very very pleased with the camera. S6 just takes stunning photos and video, I don't know why the 6p scores so closely to it.
