    hello, is this normal? my 6t on the lock screen when I pull down the notification bar the screen noticably shifts to a yellowish tinge then when I flick the notification bar up the screen goes back to its original color?

    try download the app Files made by Google. after I installed it it suggested I deleted those because they were taking up space.

    does having the ambient display always on drain the battery more with the fingerprint icon compared to previous models with always on screens? if not is it possible to have at least the fingerprint icon always on unless in a pocket so there's no need to tap once to get it to light up which will make the process faster? there are some inconsistencies with unlocking sometimes it will take longer to unlock and it will keep scanning with the animation too. i think stability and speed could be improved possibly with a future update maybe.

    Hye, yesterday I changed from iphone x to 6t...phone is great...but I have few questions. I used various news app for current news update as a notification on my iphone, but I dont know why those same apps are not giving timely lock screen popup notification on 6t. Other question is for whatsapp and other messengers, on Iphone I used to have setting in which when locked the notification will only show the header, but just when you unlock those notification threads will enlarge and show you the sender and content too on lockscreen itself. But on 6t I have to pick up phone unlock it either open the app or use notification panel and there also replies are not swift. I am new to this version of android are there are so many options to unlock the 6t and get notifications, can anyone guide me with the settings options to get them working like what I want. Thanks

    when I lock the screen and try unlock ... if I put 2 or 3 times bad the finger, the mobile unlock.
    I check the smartunlock was desactivated.
    Any person with the same issue?

    There is a flaw in the lock screen.... you can unlock anybody's screen by pressing the power button, which brings up the camera quick launch by swiping up on the screen away from the camera widget it bypasses the finger print scanner and unlocks the phone/screen....this should not be happening!!!!
