100th time I'm recommending this now, Spigen Rugged Armor. Unless you want a briefcase for a case, this is the best case out there imo.
I ordered mine the same day I ordered my phone and couldn't be happier with it, cousin has it too. Looks great, comfortable to hold, power and volume buttons effortless to press, proper cutouts for everything, and phone has been fine dropping it from 5' multiple times (of course, not something you should get in the habit of).
Also recommend this screen protector to go with it as it fits well with the case. Honestly though, as great as the screen protector is, I would opt to go for a glare free screen protector next time. Still, this protector does it's job.
I've had this Spigen case for just under a year and I have had no complaints. It grips well, it holds its shape, and, imo, it looks pretty sharp. $12 on Amazon.

Spigen Rugged Armor.
I can't believe how many people are still bashing the Nexus 6P in this thread, if you have moved on from the phone please unsubscribe from the sub. Wow.
Enjoy your new phone, I recommend a good case, because the phone is quite thin and slippy when cold or when your hands are moist.
This is the one I've used for 2 years -

If cases aren't your thing because of the added bulk then check out the dbrand website for a skin.
I've been using the Spigen Rugged Armor since Thursday. It is slim and has some nice protection and a very good feel in the hands.
Not sure how slim you want but I've been very happy with the Spigen Rugged Armor.

If you want a good case just get the carbon fiber spigen case from Amazon: https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B016CBFBVI/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_OMdzCb67XW8Z5
I have had this case for about 2 years now and have dropped my phone more times than I'd like to admit and have no dents/scratches on the phone screen. As for a screen protector just get any tempered glass protector. The 6p is such a nice phone hope you'll enjoy it, I just changed the battery recently and probably going to keep this phone till it officially gives out.
I've had good experiences with Spigen in the past so I went with this one: http://www.amazon.com/Spigen-Rugged-Resilient-Ultimate-protection/dp/B016CBFBVI
It seems like it does the job well without adding too much bulk. Not sure how I feel about that faux carbon fiber look on the back though.
There's already a dent (bottom right) and wear around the charging port.
You could buy this which is 310$, this which is 25, this for 12, all 6 skins for 63$, and the Slickwraps for 27$.
310+25+63+12+27 is 437, which is almost 100$ cheaper then your asking price (535). (prices in USD)
I have This screen protector and it's amazing. Also this case fits it perfectly and looks great!
Awesome! You'll love it.
Would recommend a case. I really like this one from spigen: Nexus 6P Case, Spigen [Rugged Armor] Resilient [Black] Rugged Armor Ultimate protection and rugged design with matte finish for Nexus 6P (2015) - Black (SGP11797) ... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B016CBFBVI/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_oSAvxbVXHMAAB
It's slim and very durable.
I'd also recommend some extra cables. The yoozon are excellent and come in 3 pack of usb-c to USB

Finally. Personally I'd also recommend a tempered glass screen protector.
There are some other cool accessories to look at for VR and stuff, but that depends on your hobbies.
Anyone have any idea how the Spigen Rugged Armor compares to this?
I mean, I'm not planning on having any 11-foot phone drops (knock on wood) but this thing looks pretty nifty.
This one has been amazing for the last year.
I got my wife and myself a Nexus 6P when we stepped over to Fi from T-Mobile. Best decision ever! I couldn't be happier. Oh by the way, we got these cases instead of spending stupid amounts of money on other ones. I thought they were just going to be 2-3 month lasting cases but I am almost a year in and it still feels and looks brand new..
this is a nice one, they feel nice in your hand, or at least it did when I was holding someones iphone with the same.
I just got the Spigen Rugged for my phone an so far so good.
Spigen [Rugged Armor] Resilient [Black]
Really like it, not a big fan of carbon fiber but it's such a minor part of the design that I got past it.

Yeah... I have too many cases
I love this phone personally. For the first couple months it had some lag, camera, and battery issues but those seem to new fixed with recent updates. I came from an iPhone 5s and was nervous as I hadn't used Android for a while and last experience wasn't that great. But this phone is great I think and I actually like it better than any phone I've had.
This is the case I have and I really like it. Didn't add bulk https://www.amazon.com/dp/B016CBFBVI/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_qHmxxbWNGBNH0
I'm using the Spigen Rugged Armor (http://amzn.com/B016CBFBVI) and it really is a nice case. I haven't put it to the test yet but after putting the 6P into it I do know I felt a lot more comfortable with where I lay the device and so on. That said the rhino shield bundle setup Evolutive Labs is coming out with looks like a for sure winner. I even placed an order for their full bundle but it's going to be January sometime before it's even suppose to be out. So till then I'll gladly sport Spigen's case. I might even pick up their screen protector. They have a tempered glass one out now (http://amzn.com/B016CBF5VO)
I bought Spigen® [Rugged Armor] Resilient [Black] Rugged Armor Ultimate protection and rugged design with matte finish.
I picked the color because I like the darker phones. :)
2 best cases, in my opinion, are the Spigen Rugged Armor and the Spigen Thin Fit. They both fit perfectly (even with a screen protector) and look and feel great. Just depends on the amount of bulk/protection you want.
I have a Spigen Rugged Armor Nexus 6P Case. The logo & 'carbon fiber' pattern are not nearly as visible as in the picture (I forgot they were there until I saw the Amazon page).
To bad Otterbox doesn't makes cases for Nexus phones. But if bulk and looks (which is subjective) aren't a worry, this seems to be up your alley.
This one also isn't bad, but like you mentioned I'm seeing more about the looks than anything else. I have it and personally I love it, but I can't speak for its ruggedness since I haven't really ever dropped my phone (with spending over $600 I'm incredibly protective of it).
Here's a 3rd option. More pricy, lacks reviews, but Speck is general a really well received brand for cases and protection.
I've got 4 cases I rotate on my Nexus 6P, the first case I got turns out to be the best , feels good, looks good, nice grip,
RINGKE FUSION Smoke Black
Must have case for all Nexus 6P , you won't regret it,
Next up is the Cover Up Woodback Explorer, Gold Lightning Bolt..... As soon as I saw the black wood finish with the gold Lightning Bolt I wanted it, very easy to fit, light weight and nice grip on the edges, looks real classy
Third is the Frost Black Supcase Unicorn Beetle.....probably the most heavy duty of the 4 I have, feels real heavy , chunky, dense, tough , looks OK , not as slick as the Ringke, and the main negative for me is how hard it is to take on and off, but for some that'll be a plus as you get a tight fit, becomes one with the phone , sure to protect your Nexus 6P.
Finally a case I want to love but the texture just doesn't quite give me as much grip as I wanted, it looks good, so easy to fit , the Spigen Rugged Armour......it's OK, nowhere near as much protection as the Supcase, least grip of the 4 I have, but it's a good no thrills solid case without being great.
So there it is , seriously if you don't have the Ringke Fusion you must get it immediately, winner all the way at a great price, the Cover Up Wood back is a comfortable 2nd , really looks amazing but is over twice the price of the other 3 in my top four, the Supcase is the brute of the 4 and finally the fairly drab Spigen Rugged Armour.
A few things I recommend:
$50 is $50, go with the gold phone and buy this:
I have the same metal plate on my 6p and use this case with the magnet between the case and the phone. It may lose some of its strength but I use the mount in my car daily as well and it has never once fallen off even after abrupt turns and braking so clearly still has enough strength to securely hold the phone. Plus the metal plate is entirely invisible.
I have an Intelliarmor TGSP and love it. I also own 3 cases:
NOTE: All 3 of these cases work great with the Intelliarmor TGSP.
I ordered Spigen's Rugged Armor case myself just the other day along with Orzly's screen protector and a few Type-C accessories from Anker. http://www.amazon.de/Spigen-SGP11797-Schutzh%C3%BClle-RUGGED-schwarz-Armor-Black/dp/B016CBFBVI
I'm pretty minimalist in my preferences (and, more importantly, don't have access to a good printer). As an illustration, my regular case is the Spigen Rugged Armor. If I do get the Ringke Fusion, I'm sure I'll just use it as-is, put the adapter on it, and learn to not be bothered by it. In the end, a slightly-less-than-preferable case on a securely-attached phone is better than an ideal case on a smashed-to-bits phone.
I actually had that same Spigen case and got a replacement case for the same reason! I went with another Spigen Case. This one is a different, more flexible material that won't crack and it wraps around the whole phone. The only thing I missed was the cutouts for the volume and power buttons but I've gotten used to this one now! I like the look of this one too.
Spigen Rugged Armor
Ah, my mistake, so the glass cover I got worked fine with this case: https://www.amazon.com/Spigen-Rugged-Resilient-Ultimate-protection/dp/B016CBFBVI.
When I ordered mine, they only had one type of screen protector...my best guess would be to go with the "case friendly" one if you plan on using one with a case.
For me it's pretty slippery so a case was necessary. I got this case and it's perfect: still super thin with barely any bulk and it feels nice in the hand.
I went with the slate/black colour and it never ceases to amaze me with its sleek design!
Hope this wall of links suits your needs!
Check out either the Spigen Rugged Armor or the Unicorn Beetle Pro. The first one is more of a slim/sleek option and the second is more akin to an Otterbox. I own both and I prefer the Unicorn mostly because I'm clumsy and it'll protect from drops. It's a fair amount thicker than the Rugged Armor however. As for glass screen protectors, check out the Spigen Glass Screen protector. It's a perfect fit and I've had my screen saved once by it. Smooth to the touch as it should be.

Does it happen in other locations? I thought my phone was powering itself off, but since it only happened in pocket, I theorize that it was the button getting hit. It was worse when I used this case but stopped when I switched to a Feather Case (can't find at the moment) which had a recession for the button.
In short, the more the button stuck out, the more this problem happened for me.
Headphones: Jaybirds. Sweat proof. Lifetime warranty on sweat. Great sound for the price. Perfect for gym or just casual. Wait for x3's. I got x2 they have problem with battery completely dying (atleast in my case), but the company always down to fix them. x3 coming out around October ("Fall") I think.
Case: Google live case, because swag and scratch protection. You can totally get cheaper/better (less swag) on Amazon. Spigen Rugged Armor comes in mind. Looks good but doesn't really protect the screen, you will need a bulky one for that.
Those spigen TGSPs look good. I'll probably grab one of those with a Rugged Armor case. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B016CBFBVI
I recommend the Spigen TPU case: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B016CBFBVI Its far thinner than the pictures make it look and its a perfect cut/fit 0 complaints.
If you want something hard: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01761J26I was a good one, also by spigen, but I wasnt a fan of the volume/power areas. Plenty of space and they work fine, but the plastic between them is higher than I'd expect and felt odd.
Do NOT get the Dgtle or Redshield cases. I ordered both and to my surprise they were the exact same case. Same mold and everything. The volume/power keys were terrible, and one of them was shipped to me with scratches on it. There's a plethora of random companies selling the same re-branded junk so keep your eyes open.
As for the glass I went with xtremeguard. They always have sales going on (like 50% to 90% off, check the top of the site to see the current one, but there's usually better ones going on if you follow them) which is good since they are normally very overpriced. But I got two of their spartan shield tempered glass protectors for $7. The cutouts include the proximity sensor and the edges are nice. The install went easy which I've never had happen. Currently their sale is at 75% which is pretty good.
Yes, the Diztronic will work with a screen protector. I have a glass screen protector on my 6P and the Diztronic works fine with it.
An alternative suggestion for a case would be the Spigen Rugged Armor. This is the one I use daily and it's basically the Diztronic with a bit more style on the back (the inlaid carbon fiber accents). This one also works perfectly fine with a screen protector.

This is the glass protector that I'm using: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B019O5MN4W?psc=1&amp;redirect=true&amp;ref_=oh_aui_search_detailpage
I'm a fan of this one. Fits perfectly, doesn't block any sensors, and lets me take screenshots. It's also absorbed a couple decent drops already (waist height). Only downside in my mind is that the corner of the charging hole digs into my pinkie finger given how I hold the phone.
That's what I have. Pretty much all matte black apart from the small parts at the top and bottom.
The case I'm using on it right now is actually quite thick (although not as ridiculously thick as a typical Otterbox case for the iPhone). This is the case I've been using since day one. It's a rather nice case, but the thickness does make the phone slightly bulkier. However, my original reply above was written based on my use of the 6P with this case on it every day, so even with a thick case, I still feel like the phone's size is manageable. I must point out that the phone is slightly easier to use without the case on it. (On a somewhat unrelated note, the lip on the sides of the case also is not high enough to fit over top of a glass screen protector, so be aware that the buttons on the side of the case will be misaligned with the actual buttons on the phone.)
If you're worried about the size and you're not prone to accidentally dropping your phone from more than a couple of feet in the air, I would just go with a thinner TPU case. I like my case, but it has its flaws, and there are definitely thinner ones out there for the 6P.
As someone who's owned the 6P for a few months on Project Fi - I can tell you that it's a pretty good phone. I haven't experienced any of the issues that Cykahui has had, and he's just really bitter.
The screen's been excellent - videos are wonderful to watch on it, and there has been no "Yellowing" or visual degradation of any kind.
The bezels aren't noticeably bad in any way. However, if you get a case for the 6P - it will inch it into "a tad too large" territory depending on the case. I use this Spigen Case with my 6P. I also use this Tech Armor screen protector - not because I lack faith in the Gorilla Glass, but just as an "extra layer" against typical unexpected life events.
The phone still feels solid, I've dropped it twice down the side of my car seat, once getting it wedged between the metal seat slide and the floor, and on extracting it there were no scrapes or scratches.
I am very happy with my 6P, however at times using custom launchers, it does prove to be a little sluggish. Using the stock launcher/Google Now launcher I didn't have any performance issues. The fingerprint unlock works well, the NFC works flawlessly with my YubiKey NEO, and it picks up my voice far more accurately than my Moto X 2014 ever did - and that phone was supposed to have a dedicated processor for voice input.
I have no doubt the Samsung S7 Edge is a fine phone, though historically I've been dubious of Samsung's insistence on customizing everything, and the utility of an edge screen still hasn't been proven to me yet. Either way, I think both will prove to be fine for you - but don't let Cykahui get to you. He's irreverent and acidic.
one of these and one of these
The Spigen has a slight bulk to it, but is a solid case. The Google case is more of a novelty with the extra button, but is slimmer and protects pretty well.

Oh, and a Nilkin Tempered Glass screen protector. I find Nilkin's fit and finish is better than many of the ones out there... worth the extra price.
bear motion is my personal favorite and my every day carry case. I like the grip it provides with the textured backing. Lacks top and bottom coverage though.
Spigen rugged armor I use this one if I feel I might benefit from a little more protection. But prefer bear motion for the slim and grippy feel. Also prefer the uncovered buttons on bear motion.
I love the phone's bare look but I love it too much to end up having it slip out of my pocket and into the street or tile floor.
Spigen makes some fantastic, good looking, slim cases for the 6P. A couple people have said that my phone looks better with the Rugged Armor case as supposed to without it. I feel no compromise in using a case.
Here's a link to the one I am talking about:
I got this bad boy:
[Nexus 6P Case, Spigen® Rugged Armor] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B016CBFBVI/ref=cm_sw_r_other_awd_tjlEwb2N5C5J6)
So thin, feels really good in the hand, eliminates the hump, and protects your phone very well.

Title: [SG] [H] Nexus 6P 64GB Graphite [W] £260
Item Name: Nexus 6P 64GB Graphite
Condition: Pretty much perfect, had a tempered glass screen protector and a case on it since about a week after I got it.
Price: £260 including postage.
Postage and Payment: Paypal or BT and probably royal mail.
Any additional information: I don't have the original charger for it so it'd just be a generic apple plug that I'll throw in most likely with a 3ft type C cable. The case is a spigen rugged armor case from here, and I'll leave the screen protector on. Never unlocked the bootloader so it's still running stock everything and it is unlocked.

Chiming in with my experience...I had mine on the roof of my car while I loaded my bike. I drove away, forgot about the phone, turned around, found the phone in a dusty, gravel parking lot working normally with no cracks in the screen. I run with the spigen rugged armor case. I will always trust the spigen cases, I had this phone go flying into parking lots or slip out of my hands and have been "lucky" each time.
I ordered the Spigen Rugged Armor. Seems to be a favorite, after they fixed all their sensor-blocking issues.
If that one is too bulky or grippy (like collecting all dust from my pocket, not coming out of pocket easily, etc), I'll probably look at the Spigen Exact Fit.
I'm using the Quad Lock Front Mount with the Quad Lock Universal Adapter. You pretty much attach the universal adapter to your phone case and you're good to go. I also have a Nexus 6P and I'm using this case if that helps.
Screen protector, yes, I use just the regular ones from best buy, but I would prefer tempered glass. Much more protective. Brother dropped his phone hard and the glass protected the screen from shattering.
I don't own a google store case, but the live cases are pretty popular if you want one custom to you. I really like the design of the Adopted Nexus 6P case on the google store too.
I use the Spigen Rugged Armor, which IMO is the best looking case you can get. If I had any other option for a case though, I'd probably get any really clear thin one and get a Dbrand skin
There isn't any bundles with the 6P that I'm aware of, but regarding your last two questions a simple search on Amazon or Ebay should help you. Just make sure when you're buying USB A to USB C cables, adapters, car chargers, etc. that they're up to USB Spec. Here is a google spreadsheet where you can see nearly all cables and adapters that have been reviewed by Benson. Avoid the ones that aren't approved like the plague and try to buy the ones that are approved for minimum risk of burning down your house/frying your phone.
Other than that I feel you'll find the transition from an Apple device to a Nexus fairly easy, as Nexus provides you with a stock and easy to use Android compared to most other Android flagships.
This is the best one.
Ok I have this J&D Case it's super slim and is more for small drops and cause this phone is super slippery. There is also this Spigen Rugged Case it's more protective without being super bulky. This Supcase Heavy Duty is even more protective. But the most protective case I could find on Amazon that didn't have bad reviews/none was this beauty.
