    I have my case ordered. Was ready for preorder (failed) and then had the 12 set all over my phone for reminders. Now we have another delay. Anyone else thinking Google can't get something right on their first try at a big phone? My friend has a iphone 6+ and like I thought it doesn't give you a true iphone feel. To me they failed on it.

    I brought the iPhone into this just because. I'm a believer that. The first attempt for company's at something very different always fails. But I was at least willing to still give it a go. 2nd guessing bow

    No.... with your carrier you are going to get a 14 day return window or if you buy from Motorola or Google Play you'll have 30 days to return it if something isn't right.... If they have a mass problem with the device carriers and more than likely Google/Motorola will do some sort of exchange/return system to fix the problem......

    I think its just contracts between T-m, at t and sprint. google offered it up to them and they took there time with reply's, verizon is under a 90 day with the droid so dont see them till later but moto said the phone will work on all.

    I have an iPhone 6 Plus and love it. I think they nailed it.

    I also have a Nexus 6 on order from the Play store and I think I will love it and I think they nailed it. The issues are related to production IMO.

    I don't think there has ever been a smooth Nexus launch. Outside of that, Google never gave a concrete launch date, T-Mobile simply claimed they would have it on the 12th while nobody else was saying a thing. If anything, I would be more mad at T-Mobile for claiming something before they knew it would be delivered upon.

    For example, nobody that preordered from the Play Store got a shipping date earlier than the 19th, with most having ship dates of the 21st, 26th, or early December. Yet T-Mobile was going to be ready to go on the 12th?

    I think this was a terrible roll out, but it definitely hasn't put me off getting the phone.

    I mean I have seen a full preview of the n6. Well he didn't say anything about bat life but. It looked very very nice and smooth. Just seems off with the small preorders and delays.

    Not scared at all because if it sucks, I'll get my money back. Buying the thing is the scary part because it's almost impossible. Hopefully this whole page monitoring thing works but now that everyone is doing it who knows. I'm hoping enough people bought the att models so I can get my play store model.

    I'm not saying the i6+ is bad. It just didn't give me that iphone smooth feeling. I live with the guy so I have used his more then once. Maybe he just never closes stuff?

    Google is 15 days but when I went to double check on their site I saw until 1/9/2015???? Someone may want to get clarification from google on that.

    Google wants you to love the devices and accessories that you buy from the Google Play store. If you aren’t happy with something you bought, you can return an item within 15 calendar days after the day you received it. We’ll send a full refund (minus your original shipping & handling charges) to your Google Wallet account within 14 business days after Google receives the device.

    Tip: All purchases from November 10, 2014 - December 25, 2014 may be be returned through January 9, 2015.

    That type of extended window isn't entirely uncommon - they are showing understanding for the fact that people advance-purchase items for the holidays, and are extending that window a bit. I'm surprised they don't have a exclusion along the lines of *devices purchased between November 10, 2014 and December 25, 2014 and registered with an account or on a wireless network will be subject to a return period of 15 calendar days from that point of registration, or January 9, 2015, whichever comes first.

    I don't blame google at all on this; I see it as a supply problem on Motorola's front. They rolled out the Droid turbo smoothly but to provide 5 carriers and 2 websites with devices they struggled. T-mobile's shipment was delayed. It's like this, ~10,000 stores need display models, then say they need ~40,000 models for launch day at those stores, then review models to promote their product while in tandem producing the Droid turbo which only needs ~1,500 display models and has barely any demand because it's verizon lock.
    I wouldn't pin this on google, I would blame the supply chain which is motorola's department. Google designed the phone/software but Motorola is charged with production of the phone and releasing it for every carrier. I haven't even thought of motorola devices since the Razr being on sprint with a iPhone and Samsung Galaxy, but now there is huge demand by people who never wanted/heard of the Nexus before the 6.

    Motorola probably bit off way more than they could chew.... Moto X, Moto G, Droid Turbo, Nexus 6, Droid MAXX.... feel like I am forgetting something... and all of these have been released in the last couple of months..... a bunch of phones across a bunch of countries and carriers.....

    No real excuse.... outside maybe the demand for all their devices put a ton of strain on their capacity to produce... The Nexus 6 kind of being the last of these to get released (It just passed FCC on October 24.... Can't imagine they started major production until it passed everything) Probably a good problem to have... Tons of demand across a ton of devices in a ton of markets..

    I am waiting to see one in store and play with it. Size will determine it. Wish they would have went with a 5.5" design, think 6" will be too large for what I want. I like fabulist, but google went above and beyond many other phablets out there, with really nothing extra to take advantage of the larger screen in the OS. Sort of like what apple did with the 6+

    I've gone thru past Nexus releases and this is exactly the same. Will wait and see if software updates improve the experience. The good thing is the phone is impossible to buy so I don't have to think about buying right now.

    I got in yesterday with the Mot site - arriving early Dec. The online assistant I chatted with said that we can get the handset insurance but it's not available yet. I hope it's not much more than the Moto X insurance ($85 one time charge for up to 3 incidents in 2yrs @ $39 per replacement).

    Yes I'm scared. The reviews have me very concerned if I made the right decision selling my N5. Using my old Nexus 4 makes me realize that battery and camera matter very much. Both of those things aren't up to my current standards anymore on the N4.

    The problem is, I don't see another Android phone that I'd buy in place of the Nexus 6. This generation is almost a throwaway for me. I'm actually half thinking about buying an iPhone 6 - it does the battery and camera thing better than any of the rest and when I resell it in a year I'll recoup more from it than any Android phone. Hopefully by then we'll have the no-compromise Android device we deserve.

    This quote I found at Droid Life makes me scared.
    95% of the time, the Nexus 6 flies through any task you throw at it. Android 5.0 is so buttery smooth in transitions, the Snapdragon 805 processor handles all of its heavy animations and layers, and games or videos play without a stutter. Every so often, though, you will see slight delays when hitting the app switcher or home button, when trying to exit the camera, or tapping a notification to open an app. The thing is, I’m not worried about it because these delays are consistent on the Nexus 9 as well

    Anyone who has the N6, do you see this lag as described above? They also said that this lag may have to do with the encryption that is shipped with the N6 and phones like the N5 and Moto x when they get 5.0 will be even faster than the N6 because they do not have this encryption. Anyone else hear this?

    I've been painted as a "troll" because I've pointed out flaws on this device, but I'm actually objective when it comes to these things. That said, I wouldn't worry about the speed of this phone. The fact it's shipped encrypted does slow some app loading and keeps the boot time above a minute, but unless you're performing a speed test with another phone, you won't notice it. Now I'm not certain you'll see a night and day difference with the Nexus 5, but performance is the last thing anyone should be worried about when a device ships with a Snapdragon 805/Adreno 420.
