You have me thinking about the nexus 6p again. I had that for a short time then got the Note 5 and it had a defective screen burn kssue...so it was returned to Amazon. Was going to get a note 5 again but concerns about screen...the nexus 6p was liquid smooth no stutter just a joy. I'd go for the lg v20 but on Amazon. It's just too much for me.I just watched a lot of videos of the S7 edge running Nougat.
The stutters and latency in opening apps and switching between apps and just navigating through the phone never bothered me.
But watching those videos, I think im spoiled by Pixel. The the little delays, I could notice quite easily.
That made me really happy about my Pixel. Maybe its a stupid thing but I've become one of those people who have started noticing the nano seconds delay in navigating through the UI. Used to hate those kinds of people. I guess I'm one of them now.
Plus I got a protector for the back glass panel which just covers the glass. I'm using the phone naked now with a glass protector on the front and that plastic protector covering the back portion. Makes a huge difference. Using a cheap case made this phone feel cheap. Without a cover it's a whole other story.
Pixel for me.
Thank you. I see the thread was going way off topic anyways.
