    Hey guys,

    Been spending a lot of time trying to figure this problem out. What's happening is the date format on various apps on my phone are showing an incorrect format. The format it is showing is DD/MM/YYYY instead of MM/DD/YYYY. I've looked everywhere, I've posted on the google nexus 6 forums, and even talked to google tech support. I've also just done a factory reset and that didn't fix the issue. In the date time settings on the phone, there is no option to change that format. This is really bizarre. Anyone have any ideas? Appreciate your help!

    Yes, I've read this complaint several times in different forums. I don't think there's a solution. One of the only places I see MM/DD/YYYY is in the "More info" details of a photo (exif).

    That's interesting, couldn't find any recent complaints. I notice it on the Google play store and whatsapp as well. Really strange problem. I wonder if it has to do with the 5.1.1 update.

    Do a search for "date format" on XDA. There are several threads on the topic. Some are inside other threads.

    It's not a LP issue. I'm on KK and it's the same for me.

    It's not really wrong. The rest of the world formats dates as DD/MM/YYYY. It's just in the US that we do month first. At my job I do some imports, so it took awhile to get used to that format, but it makes sense.

    It's not that it's wrong. It's that if you set it with MM/DD/YYYY, you expect to see it that way. It really doesn't bother me personally, but it does some people.

    I know this is SUPER old but I just figured it out on my phone (Samsung Galaxy S5) and thought I'd share. I have also been experiencing this issue and realized that, to change this back to USA format, go to: Language and Input. Select "English (US)". Mine was actually set to "English (Canada)". Problem solved!

    It has spent a lot of time removing this problem. Data format shows the wrong format on various apps on my phone. It shows that format MM / DD /Y
    Y is DD / MM / YYYY instead. I have seen everywhere, I posted on the Google Nexus 6 forum. I've reset the factory and did not fix this problem. In the date settings on the phone, there is no option to change that format. Is this really strange that somebody has ideas? Appreciate your help!

    In the Phone app (which came as as a preinstalled on my Vivo x21 Device, running Android 8.1.0), the date format used (in the call logs for example to show history of calls placed/received) is USA-Style like mm-dd-yyyy., like 09/01/2018.

    I checked the phone app's settings but could not find a way to change it to dd-mm-yyyy., like 01/09/2018.

    Anyone knows how to change date format from mm-dd-yyyy to dd-mm-yyyy?
