5 Tips for Using the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X
All Tips posts
Jason Howell has 5 great tips for getting the most out of the new Google Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X phones:
- Quickly launch the camera by double-pressing the power button.
- Enable the notification indicator light.
Go into Settings > Sound & Notification, and turn on "Pulse notification light."
- Use your Nexus device to charge another phone.
Connect the phones using a USB-C cable, and you'll see a popup that says "USB for charging." Tap that notification, choose "Power supply" on the phone delivering the charge, and select "Charging" on the phone being charged.
- See the battery percentage in the top menu bar.
Pull down the notifications shade, and then tap and hold on the settings button for 5 seconds. When you release, it will take you to the settings with a new category called "System UI Tuner." Then toggle on "Show embedded battery percentage."
- Activate Wi-Fi calling.
Go into Settings > Wireless & Networks > More, and then toggle on Wi-Fi calling. This will route calls through your Wi-Fi network when cell coverage is low.
