Not sure if it's related but my Nexus5 started to reboot only AFTER the November system update. My 6P only updated yesterday and no reboots yet so I guess it's just a matter of time.

I've had the November 1st update since Monday and I can say I've had no problems so far. I also tried the 'okay Google' option without unlocking my phone and it's awesome for hands free when driving. Works every time. One thing I had to do to get it working in the beginning was to change the language to US instead of NZ.

Ahh also, got the spigen case from PB tech Penrose yesterday, they had stock.

I prefer the smooth feel from the TradeMe case, but this case definitely has better protection and has more grip. If you haven't got a case on yours yet, I'd recommend this one.... at least for now :)

@n95:
ramboky: For anyone looking for USB C cables that won't fry the host, a Google engineer has taken it upon himself to review some on Amazon. I recommend you check them out. Details here:

https://plus.google.com/u/0/+BensonLeung/posts/LH4PPgVrKVN


And here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/+BensonLeung/posts/jGP5249NppF if you are lucky enough to have a Chromebook Pixel is a way to test your cable. I have order 2 USB C cables from here: http://www.aliexpress.com/snapshot/7019669768.html?orderId=70165784316693 but have know why of knowing if the comply so won't be using them in my 6P 


Sorry about the slow reply, busy with a newborn. My tests suggest those cables are NOT compliant, sorry. 


I hope you haven't thrown your cables out, turns out I had a faulty one, my second cable passed my testing.

Anybody else here still waiting for their case to arrive from the Google store?  I ordered on the 28th October and it shipped the same day, with delivery stated to be between 6-9th November.  4 chat conversations with Google Store support later and I'm still no closer to finding out where the heck the thing is.  Google were certainly quick in taking my money though - my credit card was charged instantly!...

Thanks for your info and help in this thread.

I have ordered my Nexus 6P from Harvey Norman, got my Spigen case from PB Tech & made sure I have got correct cables from Amazon.

I really found the comments in here very helpful.

Cheers

Stu

I found that toll tracking didn't work, try tracking your package here https://track.aftership.com/toll-global-express/ 

Toll are absolutely terrible, they don't seem to leave cards for failed deliveries so your package may be sitting at their depot. I'd recommend giving them a call.

I don't even know who the case was sent with! *EDIT*  Was sent from Hong Kong with Hong Kong Post according to my wallet transaction history.  Any idea who they will use as a carrier in NZ?

Might give toll a call and try my luck, but I just imagined that because I chose the free shipping option it would be standard post to my letterbox.

I Finally got a Google store representative to give me some answers. Basically asked me if my neighbours had it (nope) and then told me to reorder it and they'd refund me! So that's where I'm at. Paid for shipping this time so hopefully I'll have a tracking number... Wonder who has my original case?

It ships from Hong Kong via Toll Global Prority. 

If you go here: https://store.google.com/orderhistory you should bee you order, click on "Order Details" and there will be a tracking link. The tracking like doesn't actually work until your order enters New Zealand but it seems to be pretty much real-time from that point.

Was that with the free shipping option as well? Mine still takes me to Hong Kong post website (there is no tracking number to enter) - if it doesn't arrive today I guess I'll have to request a refund given I've already sourced a case locally

I have been trying that link for the past couple of weeks, but all it ever did was take me to the HK Post website, without any tracking number.  Figured there was no tracking as I used the free shipping option.

That's really odd, I used free shipping for both my Nexus 6P order and a case I currently have on order (two separate orders) and both shipped via Toll Global Priority with tracking.
