    Yeah, I know, un-box it and turn it on.

    Then what? Take a naked selfie? What?

    UNBOXING VIDEO!!!! POST IT TO AC FORUMS!!!

    Seriously though, I give the ambassadors and moderators a severely difficult time of it if they don't do the unboxing videos. After that, I'd recommend taking a ton of low light photos so all the people with questions about that can see it in the real world.

    In no particular order:
    • Thoroughly explore Marshmallow and how it looks/works
    • Go through the settings
    • Put Google Now On Tap through its paces
    • Check out how headphones sound for music and speakers sound for watching video
    • Take LOTS of photos

    I'll be anxious to run battery tests ... after the naked selfies of course!

    I'm thrilled with the preliminary reviews so far. this bad boy has everything I'm looking for, and the camera getting great reviews so far is a welcome surprise.

    it's gonna be tough waiting a full month for it to get here!

    Why does it have to be terrible? My s6 edge is incredibly bright in daylight.

    First thing is to try and make sure it works on VZW then play with Marshmallow and start to load up apps.

    I'll probably unlock and root it (presuming that it is possible to do so...).

    I have never done so on my Nexus 4, 5, or 6, and often found myself regretting it and wishing at some point that my device was rooted so that I could try this or that. I know that I can root at any time, but frankly, it always seems like more trouble than it's worth once the device is in daily use.

    Dive into the pool and take some underwater photos to thoroughly test the water resistance, take a car key to the screen to see how scratch resistant it is, forcibly bend it, and then lastly drop test it a few hundred feet.

    Decide if it really is too big and whether or not to send it back.

    Check to see if the headset call volume is reasonable. My experience with the Nexus 5 is that the headset volume (not using speakerphone or earphones) is way low compared to other phones I've used.

    Get back into the Android OS having been on iOS for the last year (work phone). I'm looking forward to the fact that it will have an excellent camera and build design in stock android. For so many years that was really a unicorn for Android owners -- camera + design + battery + stock ardroid.

    Definitely unlock the bootloader. I'm always too impatient to wait for ota's anyways so I'll be flashing factory images from Google

    Why do people still root devices? You also lose Android Pay by doing so.

    Phil, I think, said the first think to do is change the screen setting to RGB??? He said the colors looked so much better and not washed out after doing so.

    Must look into this further.

    Interesting. I've always rooted but didn't do so w/my second N7 '13 for whatever reason. Haven't missed it. Of course, it's not a phone.

    Not sure about my N6P.

    welcome back! I said the exact same thing on another site, unicorn reference and all ... it's so true, we finally for camera and battery to go along with stock. and the aesthetics are original and gorgeous, not easily done nowadays!
