no, I declare value of US$249 in youshop, they slapped a high value item surcharge, but no mention of GST

 

I guess it's in a bit of gray area, whether youshop postage should be included in the calculation (by youshop)

Mine turned up thursday.  Very happy with it, I went into DSE and got Jackson USB travel charger, cost me $13 and said it supported fast charging.

Now I am using the LG charger that came with the nexus 5x, my charging from 30% to over 95% is now about 40 minutes.

 

I also went onto the google store and just got the standard wall charger for the nexus 5x should show up next week.

Hmm thought I'd grab a cable or charger from 2degrees since I know a few people who got the 6p there and they would match. Apparently nope to that or having a sim tool on hand either.

Anyone know if there's a way to add NZ locale without root adb?

I cut my micro sim with a template, although sanded it down a bit too much... 

 

Had a xiaomi power board which takes the US plug, looking at some type C to micro USB adapter, and type C cable on gearbest. One of their new power bank has a type C port. 

 

Recall some news Amazon stop selling sub standard USB type C cables..

Oh I was surprised they didn't have the tool on hand to open the sim slot. The guy shoved his name badge pin in there and it went right in without opening the slot, hopefully he didn't Stan something important, had to give him a telling off and asked for a paperclip. Got a cable and case from pbtech in the end.

Mine arrived a week ago.  Really nice phone and at $380ish for the 32gig model I'm really happy.  The camera is a nice step up from my Nexus 5.
