    I'm happy I went with the 64GB version of the 6P for sure. No worries now.

    Tomorrow is the big day. It will determine if this is a true keeper. Will it be able to hold a signal in a church basement. My nexus 6 struggles when it is idle but once it is in use it holds on to a sliver of lte.

    Ewww, the ultimate test. My N4 did great until lollipop. I swore that update ruined my signal. But my N5 is not much better so now I wonder if it's the towers in my area. I'll keep my fingers crossed for superior signal strength for you.

    so far it has been good but I been above ground. I have yet to put it to the test in a place where the signal strength was weak.

    Mine actually seems to be a bit better than my Note 4 was as far as "bars", but I never really played attention to decibels, which tells you more.

    Mine has been great, just as good if not better than my previous two devices. I'm comparing to the 2013 Moto X and the LG G2. Both of those had good signals as well.
