    I'm seriously considering picking up the new Nexus 6P, but the screen size has me a bit concerned about one-handed operation, which has led me to ask 2 questions that I haven't been able to find an answer for yet:

    1. does Marshmallow allow you to select different arrangements for the on-screen navigation buttons like the LG G series; and

    2. more importantly, does it include the fourth on-screen nav button that pulls down the notification shade (again, like the LG G series)?

    This issue is not necessarily a "deal breaker" for me in making a device decision, but these 2 features have been very useful for one-handed operation of my G2, and I imagine it would be even more so on a "tall" screen such as that on the 6P.

    Thanks for any wisdom from anyone who has actual experience with the new OS.

    The 2 features were, I believe, a capability of the skin LG adds to their phones. You would need to use an alternate launcher to get this I think.

    Stock Android does NOT allow for this. Period. If there were any changes to the nav bar to be made, root would be required.
