I'm missing information how to use the new API with App Engine in case you need server logic. The Google documentation seems deprecated, still showing the deprecated Firebase

+Google Developers this just got updated, but the Firebase explanation is deprecated as at Google I/O the new API has been explained

+Alex Lockwood​ how do I add my own stuff to a share sheet? I'm using a third party library now, but the Photos app seems to just add three options at the top!

#nexus5x #rant #firstworldproblems  

I don't understand this notion that a 5" phone means "budget". If Google released the Nexus 5X with an all-aluminum body, higher resolution screen, 3GB RAM, a bigger battery, and Gorilla Glass 4 for $499, I would have bought it immediately. I suspect that many of the 6P buyers would have too.

I mean, honestly, who is the 5X marketed at? Seems like only Nexus-attached, 6-inch-phone-haters who will take what they can get. Read: me.

Seeing so many people say that the Nexus 5X is simply not a good value, and instead, opting for the base 6P. They're right. I actually considered this in the moment of truth, especially given the relatively-small $70 difference for the 32GB models, but in the end, I simply do not want a 6" phone.

I've never felt so conflicted over a device purchase. I really believe Google phoned-in the N5X, and in the process, sent a clear message that they no longer care about users like me. With Motorola losing touch, there is nobody left to turn to. It's a sad time to be a normal-sized-Nexus lover.
