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.

>Do you recommend using cases/skins? How about screen protectors?

I never use screen protectors, my 5x looks fine after 6 months of use. I'm a lady though, so I don't pocket my phone often and when I do it's in a back pocket by itself. I'm also a case minimalist and have been happy with this clear case.

>I hear some people have had problems with battery life and overheating. Is this common?

No issues here in ~6 months of use. If you are a heavy user you may have to charge during the day but quick charge makes this super painless, and the battery saver function actually works really well in a pinch. I drive a lot and a quick charge capable car charger is amazing - even a short drive between meetings is enough to give significant charge.

>To those who have had theirs for several months, how's it holding up?

Just fine. Still performs as expected, no major glitches or issues, have only had to hard restart it due to quirky behavior two or three times all of which came after an extended period of not power cycling the device coupled with an app crash that caused things to go wonky.

>Are there any other downsides that I should know about?

Not from where I'm sitting. My 5x is a daily driver device for me and I'm a business owner that is often more out of the office than in.

I just ordered it, expecting it tomorrow, but this one appears perfect.

The 1st Quick Charge + USB-C Portable Charger in The World - RAVPower 20100mAh External Battery Pack Power Bank

You can charge it with USB-C, use the USB-C for 5V/3A charging, has QC 2.0 if needed, other ports, large capacity. Also has great reviews.

u/iamluke · 4 pointsr/Nexus

It's really lightweight, much easier to hold with one hand than the iPad. The screen is really nice, although I noticed the speaker isn't the best (I wasn't expecting it to be at all though).

I highly recommend you buy one of these: and use an Xbox controller (or use bluetooth if you have a PS3 controller) and download FPSe and play some Tekken 3 or other PSone games. Seriously, it's a blast.

icarez tempered glass was hands down the easiest screen protector i've ever installed, and in fact, the only install i would consider a success. zero bubbles and easy to get it lined up straight.

u/dakoellis · 4 pointsr/Nexus

Supcase unicorn beetle. Protection seems pretty good and its not slippery like spigen slim armor. Plus it looks way better than any other cases imo

u/Luomulanren · 1 pointr/Nexus

I have used the Nexus 9 since release. I have seen many people complained of various issues but I personally never had any. I love the tablet and have been having a hard time finding a replacement but it's hard to deny that it's rather slow. I use it almost strictly to stream videos from various apps and it does that perfectly fine.

I have never used a Tab S2 so I can't say much about it.

I would recommend looking into Huawei Mediapad M3 Lite and Lenovo Tab 4. I haven't used either but they are newer than the Nexus 9 and Tab S2 so I assume they are faster and their prices are comparable. But if you plan on streaming from Netflix be sure your device can actually stream in HD.

u/jmowens51 · 7 pointsr/Nexus

Not sure how slim you want but I've been very happy with the Spigen Rugged Armor.

u/RedBugz007 · 2 pointsr/Nexus

While somewhat true if you are still interested they have created an official one found here.

u/akashik · 2 pointsr/Nexus

This one from Pleson is great. Highly recommended.

u/catlatte · 6 pointsr/Nexus

I've had good experiences with Spigen in the past so I went with this one:

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.

u/StormKMD · 1 pointr/Nexus

As far as a clear "case", you can try out a Nilkin TPU. It won't have the same protection as a plastic case, but it'll still look decent and save your phone from scratches and dents.

As for screen protectors, I buy this:

u/oldneckbeard · 1 pointr/Nexus

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.

u/sbach89 · 3 pointsr/Nexus

Bought this. Works perfectly.

u/sangerpb · 5 pointsr/Nexus

I love this one: I got the smoke one.

u/AthenesWrath · 2 pointsr/Nexus

I have this flash-drive. It works perfectly and is compatible with everything. Also I use the ES File Explorer App to transfer files.

u/sleven711 · 1 pointr/Nexus

Been using this wireless charger on my N5 for a year now and it works perfectly.

u/avrahta_2005 · 1 pointr/Nexus

I have the Ringke Fusion for my Nexus 6 and it works great.
Check out the reviews for the 6p version though.

u/goldenmonkey1 · 3 pointsr/Nexus

Also, as far as charges go, I bought the official 'Google' charger:

And then the following cables:

Anker 1m A to C cable:

iOrange 2m A to C cable:

It appears that only 1m cables will deliver USB 3.0 speeds. The phone doesn't do USB 3.0, but good to have for future proofing. The Google charger will be used at work, the charger that came with the phone plugged in by the couch. The 2M cable will be paired with a 'slow charging' brick (My Nexus 7 power adapter) and the 1M cable will be my multi-purpose one for my portable battery pack, or for the car. Should probably buy another 1M just to have it around.

u/thegrau · 1 pointr/Nexus

I don't know about adapters, but I can confirm that this works very well.

u/SaiyanOfDarkness · 1 pointr/Nexus

Funny you should say that.. Look what I ordered before you even said anything. :D

u/the_wrastler · 1 pointr/Nexus

I use this one sometimes for Pokemon GO. The capacity is about the same as the phone battery so it should make your battery last twice as long. And it's small and light enough to just fit in your pocket. Using Ampere I get a charge rate of about 1000

u/Lanky_Ape · 2 pointsr/Nexus

iOrange-e comes highly recommended. I have one for work, where the outlet is across the cubicle.

u/Storm_Smurf · 2 pointsr/Nexus

Idk if these are the ones Dmaynard83 was referring to, but I use these with a 5X and all functions work properly: Amazon Premium Headphones

u/FiV55Sampler · 3 pointsr/Nexus

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.

u/howiela · 2 pointsr/Nexus

After OS I have 25.01 GB left. I have no large games on my phone, and the app that uses the most storage is Google play music (current list is 3.5 GB).

For extra storage you could use Google drive 2$ (monthly) for 100GB or if you use Office 365 you already have 2TB on OneDrive.

Or you could buy an usb-c stick.

u/jrobinson1705 · 1 pointr/Nexus

I use this one. Comes with a lifetime warranty in case it breaks...the screen protector, not the phone.

u/veryalias · 1 pointr/Nexus

I will say that the aux cable I use seems to need a little extra force to insert the last millimeter or so into my Nexus 5X. I don't know if this could be happening to you either. Are you able to check whether any other devices have this issue when plugged into your car the same way?

u/krisleex · 1 pointr/Nexus

I haven't tried the Spigen but have the Ringke Fusion on my phone. It's hard plastic for the back and TPU for the bumper.

u/AsusChrome · 1 pointr/Nexus

It all depends on size. Most tablets are used for reading, videos/movies, possibly gaming, and mostly are used as multimedia devices. The normal goal with a tablet is to deliver a solid display and enough horsepower to keep things going smoothly at that resolution. All of the next mentioned tablets fit this bill. Suggestions-

7in-Nexus 7 (2013) $160 at Amazon

8in- Nvidia SHIELD K1 $199 on Amazon

9in- Nexus 9 $300 at Amazon

10in- Nexus 10 $399 on Amazon

Most Samsung tablets along the lines of Tab 3-4 etc or Tab S2 fit the bill also, but the main problem with these is no android updates and TouchWiz, which slows everything down(IMO).
