    Got the 6p two days ago, and was really disappointed with the screen size. It says 5.7", but the actual screen is no way close to that. Compared to my Note5 (Samsung)Huawei really lacks any sense of aesthetics. Any way to make the screen extend to full screen?

    I'm not sure I understand your issue. All of the space allocated for the LCD itself is used for display area. If you're talking about space at the top and bottom of the phone, there's no LCD there. You can't just "extend to full screen" in that space as there's simply no LCD there.

    Could it be a little shorter in height by shrinking that space? Maybe, if the components can be rearranged to allow it to happen. That might also mean a smaller battery though.

    What you're looking at are the bezels. That's not screen.

    No, the home screen users the full LCD screen space, but launch an app and the back and home button take up screen space. No a deal breaker, but coming from the GN5 (had to drop it because of compatibility with Docomo Japan) where the back and home buttons are not intrusive, it's a bit disappointing.

    Would be great if the back button and home button panel black space could be made transparent as they are on the home screen.

    There are several apps that can enable immersive mode.

    Here's the Google Play store search for "immersive mode". I can't suggest any individual app as I haven't installed any but there appear to be at least some reviews to peruse for many of them.

    And it's common for games, which don't require the Back/Home/Recent buttons, to enable immersive mode.

    Thanks, although that app hasn't seen an update since December 2014. And it only has a 3.8 rating, along with lots of recent comments that question its functionality.

    Tried the app, exactly what I was looking for. Works perfectly. Thanks a million @SactokingsFan and other posters.
