What do I need to know when it first arrives?

Are there any "gottchas" I should know first? Things that fall under the "oh, you shouldn't have done that" category?

Like when I got the Nexus one of the first warning was don't close the sim drawer if it's empty because if there is no sim in it it's virtually impossible to open again. Does that apply here?

Also, with the Nexus there was a suggestion to enable usb debugging in case the phone ever didn't boot properly. Are there things like that to do with the 3T?

The phone arrived at my local airport yesterday, but I'd made arrangements with DHL to deliver today because I'll be at home and wouldn't have to worry about it sitting on my porch all day. Probably won't get to T-Mobile until tomorrow to get a new sim, but at least I can play on wifi.

I think this really falls into the personal preference category. The sim tray comes loaded with blanks.

You might want to enable developer options, and then disable all 3 animations... or change it to 0.5x. If you enable Advanced reboot, you can boot into the stock recovery from a long press of the power button... stuff like that.

I tried to pick up a nano-sim from AT&T before my phone arrived so I could set it up myself, but AT&T wouldn't give me one saying they had to disable the old phone first (which has a micro-sim). Whatever. It was a non-event getting the OP3 on the network other than having to manually input the APN settings.

I don't currently have USB debugging enabled. I've toyed with sRGB mode but leave it in default. Matter of fact, Nougat has hidden (moved) the sRGB option and although I found it once, I can't remember where it is now. Edit: oh yes, here it is. Under Settings/Display/screen calibration. unintuitive location to me. Oh well.

As usual, there are tons of options to consider under most settings. So have fun playing and getting it setup to your satisfaction.

Update it to 7.0 and factory reset for the new file system! Then take care of the sim card and apps and so on.

3T comes from OP configured for f2fs. But after the major upgrade (MM to N), I think a FDR is an excellent idea. Especially just before loading it up with apps and data and personalizing it... all the things you lose with a FDR.

Not sure what mine came with since it put me into the setup screens before I had a chance to look. Once I finished the setup it is on 7.0, but during the setup it prompted me to update to oxygen 28 170114, and I'm not sure how that correlates? Anyhow, bottom line is do I have to worry about file system version and how do I know what type I have? Didn't see that mentioned in settings. Just want to check before I start transferring my files over so I don't have to do that twice.

BTW, shipped with half full battery, so I got to use the new charger and yeah, that is so much faster than I'm used to!
