Got my Nexus 6 today and are just getting to grips with it. I have a few questions that someone may be able to help with.

1. Charging - I note that Australia have refused to certify the quick charger at this stage. Not sure where NZ  stands on this at this stage however the charger in the box is a Motorola one so not sure how to tell if its the Rapid charger or not. 

2. I normally use a QI charger that I use for my Nexus 5 so tried that out this afternoon and after a couple of hours it was very hot to touch so I stopped using it. Anyone else with a QI charger can the comment here?
I will try using a conventional charger tonight and see what it does re heat

3. Barometer the blurbs say that it includes a Barometer but I cannot see how one would access. Maybe its an internal thing like the Magnetometer??

All in all I love it bit strange handling the big size but will get used to it.

Back to playing with it

PS love the NFC set up now available. Just bump the two devices together and pop in your google password and it sets itself up automatically. Way to go

You might get more responses in the Android forum.
Where did you get your N6 from?
The barometer is interesting. Maybe you need an app that can access it's parameters? There are lots on GP Store.

Thanks I will repost in Android, I got the Nexus 6 from PB Tech. The only store around that seemed to have stock. Only the 32Gb version but that seems more than enough storage.

just because it might be better in another forum maybe report it to a mod so they can move it instead of making a second post on exactly the same topic :)
