Updated this morning, so far haven't noticed anything out of the ordinary (still works which is ultimately a good thing)

Has anyone found a decent source of USB Type-C to USB Type-C cables at reasonable price in NZ?  I've just lost my send USB-C to USB-C cable (or someone swiped it) and I don't want to pay to import a bunch more from Amazon just yet.

 

Alternatively, does anyone have a spare USB Type-C to Type-C cable they'd like to sell off at a reasonable price?

I guess it depends on what you think a suitable price is, you can pick them up off the Apple.co.nz site for $55 for a 2 metre one (that seems quite pricey in my eyes...however that's about the same price you can pick them up off Google Store as well

This is probably a better deal direct from Google

I came across these the other day

 

http://www.monoprice.com/pages/usb_31_type_c?AID=11051853&PID=5147766&ref=cj&utm_source=cj&utm_medium=11051853&utm_term=Skimlinks-2617611

 

They aren't in NZ, but they apparently have a very good reputation for quality. Unfortunately their cheapest postal method is prohibitive, but via YouShop would come out at about $30 for one of the cheaper cables. If you got a few extras the $18 YouShop fee would become a lot less significant. 

 

The good thing is that they appear to have taken the USB-C specification seriously.

I got some cables after I bought 2 6Ps and one of them charges fine but cannot be used to connect to computers.
It looks identical to one which does work.

nakedmolerat: @matisyahu i thought you have bought one earlier.

 

I gave that to my sister because she wanted one with a bigger screen and I wanted one with more storage than 64GB.

Now I've taken it back to 2degrees twice for repair and am taking it back for a third time today. Got this as part of the Geekzone deal originally.

 

1st time returned 02/16:

 

  • All apps freezing "this application has had an error and has crashed | OK", random reboots, hang on boot
  • Wiggly USB-C would only charge when slight pressure applied on a given angle.
  • Tried checking for updates, hard resets, different (certified) USB-C cables - nothing fixed
  • Repair fixed wiggly USB-C by apparently replacing the charge port PCB, freezing persists.

2nd time returned 03/16:

 

  • Seems the charge port PCB also contains the main mic don't know if related but now mic seems to be muffled / or working at approx 5% normal sensitivity. Googling says may be related to sound cancellation but short of rooting device there are no settings to change this - April updates don't appear to have resolved.
  • Repair replaced motherboard PCB - new IMEI issued. Still testing app freezing, random reboot, boot hang issue - appears to be resolved. Mic low sensitivity issue still persists.

So thinking about bringing it back again because the mic seems to not be working. I like to think I'm careful with my phones, no drops, no water, always with a case. Appears to be more scuffing from the repairs than from me. Have gone through 3x iPhones with only normal battery wear and not had a single issue. My second attempt at a flagship Android is pushing me back to Apple unfortunately.

 

Anyone else with similar issues?

I'd be asking for a replacement unit if I were you, I've had nothing like this happen with my device (and haven't heard of any similar issues with any other Nexus 6P devices. Sounds like you got a dodgy unit that missed QA at the factory. Doesn't leave a very nice taste in the mouth.
