We are big fans of the new Google Nexus 6P smartphone here at DroidForums. The new Huawei-made device has impressed us in so many ways, it's hard not to be enamored by it. We know that many of you have already pre-ordered the device. We thought it would be useful to compile a few handy tips for you to help maximize your experience when you first get the device. Obviously these are not exhaustive, and there will likely be a ton more that you will figure out yourself once you get it. In the mean-time, though, these tricks should help get you started. Enjoy! First and foremost, be sure to head over to our dedicated Nexus 6P section for further discussion, advice and input regarding your new Google smartphone.

Because the adaptor is a (5V/3A) device, it is the only way you can use the QuickCharge 2.0 feature built-into the phone. You can use other charging adapters, but it will simply take much longer to charge. Of course, to use different adapters you will need to pull out the included 6-inch Type-C to Type A cable. Third, don't forget to secure your new Nexus 6P with fingerprints, pattern, PIN, or password. We recommend the fingerprint option as the word on the street is that the fingerprint recognition sensor and software in the Nexus 6P are fast and reliable. Handily, you can even use the fingerprint sensor to make purchases on the Google Play store, which is our fourth recommended tip. Fourth, as we mentioned in the last tip, you can use your fingerprint sensor to make purchases on the Google Play Store for an extra layer of security. Here's a quick rundown on how to set that up: Open the Google Play app. Select Settings in the navigation drawer Find and check the Fingerprint authentication box The first time you use it on the Play Store it will still ask for a password, but after that it will be smooth sailing. Fifth, don't forget to enable the System UI tuner to add battery percentage. Google's "experimental" UI tweaker has a handy feature that isn't enabled by default. We are scratching our heads as to why, but it's super easy to setup. Here's how, Pull down the notification tray twice Long press the Settings gear icon for around 5+ seconds After that, let go and pull the shade back up - you will see a new prompt that says, “Congrats! System UI Tuner has been added to Settings.” Now you can scroll down to the bottom of the Settings app to find a new setting called System UI Tuner Afterwards, Google will issue a warning that the features are "experimental," but you simply select “Got it” and “Show embedded battery percentage," and you are finished. These are just a few of the first things you should consider doing with your slick new Google flagship Nexus 6P. Feel free to add any other tips and tricks to this, or our Nexus 6P dedicated, thread.
