For those of you who bought from the Google Store, how long did it take to get your mobile?

postmazter: and it looks like waiting for the official charger to be available is almost the only option for now... also you can use this car charger: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B0146FK3G0/drolif05-20

I have been reading the reviews from Benson Leung

He has been doing some great work.

I ordered it before the launch date, it shipped on Tuesday and would have arrived on the Friday if Toll didn't put it on the wrong dispatch courier, it arrived the following Tuesday as on Monday Toll forgot to put it on any dispatch courier

.....and in fact, I'm struggling to find anywhere that does.


I have a 12W iPad cahrger at home. I will try it to see if it does "fast charging". It may be that we just need a higher wattage charger.


The 12W iPad charger makes the Nexus 6P show rapid charging (or something like that) so I guess any higher wattage charger will do the same.

postmazter: on the charging note: I bought this cable from Aliexpress: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/2015-Latest-USB-3-1-Type-C-USB-C-cable-USB-Data-Sync-Charge-Cable-for/32335241897.html

it seems to be compatible with Nexus 6P; tested using 3 different charges + Ampere (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.gombosdev.ampere&hl=en)

AND CheckR (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.mderezynski.checkr&hl=en)


My two cents re charging. I have just received the following items:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B010VFFU1W

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0151RKYBG

Both cable and adapters seem to be working well and tested fine with CheckR (adapters paired with old micro-usb cables).

About a week for me, from the shipping date.

Discostew42:I have a tempered glass screen protector shipping from overseas


Just got my "SuperShieldz" tempered glass screen prorectors today only to find that they do not have a cutout for the proximity sensor which means that the screen goes black as soon as you make a call and there is no way back in until the call is ended.

Very disappointed. I ordered them before the 6P was available so there were no reviews.

Does anyone recommend a glass protector which works for the 6P?


I bought this one, which I've had on since day one and it works flawlessly!

Supershieldz are now saying that they will replace the faulty ones and that they were given wrong specs before they made the first batch.

I have ordered a couple of these though:-

Good stuff!

I also ordered this cheap one from Aliexpress at the same time as the Intelliarmor and can confirm that it has the Proximity cutout also (even though the pic. does not show this!):

Not sure if anyone else is having this issue, but when I read this thread on my Nexus 6P the right hand side of the content is not viewable, pinch and zoom don't seem to help the situation, anyone else experience this....or is it just me?

I think that there is something wrong with the web page. I get the same issue with Chrome on a PC. If I widen the Chrome window or maximise it the problem goes away.

Same thing happens to me. Also seen it on a few other websites. Quite annoying.
