    Seeing all these horror stories on the 6p, I'm thinking of buying one..... Bad idea? Owner says he's had no battery issues but I'm still leary. Still worth it at $180 or not for a 32gb 6p?

    I'd pass on the used 6P. Too many potential issues.

    The battery issues (shutting down at 50%) on ours didn't show up until nearly 2 yrs old,-- not much intensive battery usage so it probably took longer for the battery to suffer. We are replacing the battery, but that's a crap shoot since no true oems (no temp sensors) seem to be available despite ads staying OEM. It's a great device except for the battery issue. In seeking a replacement, we decided nothing came close in the under $500. price range. As long as you understand that the battery issue may arise, that's a decent price.

    It's a good buy for Nexus 6P enthusiasts, just replace the battery

    How are you replacing the battery? I can't afford a brand new phone right now.

    You can buy the battery on eBay and replace the battery or have a shop like uBreakiFix do it for $80-100.

    We also purchased from eBay but won't arrive until Sat so nothing to recommend yet.

    No! Aside from the battery issues you might get the bootlop of death. I recently got on a few months ago at a great price but now it's a paperweight. The bootloop got me with no fix in sight.

    Ours didn't arrive until the following Monday. The tools that came with it weren't just ineffective, they crumbled into sediment getting all over everything. The battery works. The phone can, once again, go all day and no shutdowns. The battery we bought (portableparts) has no heat sensor nor will it fast charge. But, everything else on the phone works.

    Just got one for the missus. Paid £110 for 32gb handset on EE. It was tested and comes with 12 month warranty.

    So far so good. Upgrading everything first to 8.1 then did some tests on battery before resetting again and loading all the apps she needs. Its doing about 4 hours ish SOT with everything set to push location on etc which I am ok with.

    My only gripe was the shutter speed lagged a bit but loaded the pixel camera app and that is much quicker.
