Use a Citi credit card to get 24 months of extended warranty added to the phone or many other cards will add up to an additional year.
Phone comes with both a transparent tpu case in the box and a glass screen protector already installed. It may still pay to get a more heavy duty case as some folks have mentioned the lense of the camera being easy to scratch. The default case isn't very thick so it doesn't raise the lense from laying flat all that much.
Abel408 wrote a very nice guide on how to unlock the bootloader, install twrp and finally flash omnirom. (stick with Android Nougat (7.x) for now as Oreo (8.x) is still in alpha status) Note that if your phone comes with the version ending in .018s you will need to let the over the air update to .021s flash BEFORE using his guide. The phone checks WEEKLY for updates but you may be able to do a manual check from the "about phone" settings. (I can't check as I'm now on omnirom -- FameWolf) Guide: https://docs.google.com/document/...d8s0v6zkwU
Installing Magisk (link in the guide) will both allow you to have root AND pass safetynet so you can use android pay/play Pokemon Go.
