    Or get a nexus 5 (not 5x), which you can get for cheap, for all your modding fun. Nexus 5 is still unencrypted out of the box. Plus if you decide to build roms on it for fun and you have an oopsie you are not having to be concerned about it being a DD. Since having a phone I keep as a DD separate from my play phone I am able to have more fun. With project fi (or some cheap straight talk like company) I can see how the radio work if I so care. But 99% of the time I run it on WiFi. But I'm not having to wait and worry about trying to get my phone restored to answer work emails.

    So maybe keep the nexus 6p bootloader unlocked so you can install your own updates but keep it as a stock DD that you use Android Pay on. And snag a nexus 5 for cheap as a play phone.

    Cut that sucker down! I cut my own sim based on a thread that PC (I think) created so I could use the sim I had with my Note 4. No issues whatsoever. Search for micro nano sim on the forum here & you should find it or Google convert micro to nano sim. There's a great template you can print off to cut it down. I did mine with a good pair of scissors.

    Yeah they are pretty easy to cut. I actually have a sim card cutting tool, but scissors work just as well. I actually had an issue a year ago with Verizon giving me a nano sim for my nexus 6 so I had them give me one for my galaxy nexus which I cut to make it work. No issues with it.
