If you are coming to the Nexus 6P from a Galaxy device you might be annoyed at the placement of the recent and back soft keys in the nav bar. You may have become so accustomed to their placement on your Note 5 or Galaxy S6 that you have accidentally pressed the wrong button on your Nexus 6P a time or two.

I find that due to the size of the Nexus 6P I have a harder time reaching all the way across the screen to press the back button. It is really unfortunate because I use it far more often than the recents button, but I feel like the recents button is much easier to reach. You can actually swap these soft keys pretty easily. "Molson8045" has put toghther a few flashible zips. Just install in a custom recovery like TWRP or CWM recovery to swap the position of your recents and back button!
