    On charge only gets hot, won't boot.
    Just ordered a New [Other] Nexus 6 on FleaBay.

    Thought they were water "resistant"?

    Did you dry it out before charging it?

    I'm assuming it was submerged, these aren't waterproof.

    I wonder if illiterate people get the full effect of alphabet soup

    Yes. By plugging it in without letting it dry out you may have fried it.

    The problem is they then become dyslexic as the sort order is usually off.

    Yes
    Didn't handle that crisis very well.

    EDIT: Was thinking about getting a 6P or S7, then I thought: Why?

    It is unofficially water resistant so best of luck there. This is unlike the latest Samsung S7 phones that do have official water proof ratings.

    A close friend of mine has had success with repairing about 5 devices that got dunked in water (pool/tub/puddle etc).
    If you have given up on your phone, I'm happy to ask him to try to fix your phone - he is not a repairman (he is a network engineer - specializes in hardware) - just does this as a hobby. You'll have to pay shipping both ways, but he has not asked for any other payment from the other folks (no parts had to be replaced in those cases). If you are interested, I can ask him to confirm.

    Better than tossing it into the garbage at least

    ^ Yup - it was in a hand made leather wallet case with CC's, cash, license all my good stuff.

    After utilizing a Sony Z3 Compact for the last couple of days ...might send my newly purchased new-ish Nexus 6 back.
    Point being, Will wait for an appropriate Nexus to upgrade rather than buying yet another cellphone.
    Like many others...have a box of various unused cellphones wasting away by my desk.
    First world problem...I know.

    How in the hell does that happen? To everyone, here is some advice, just keep phones out of the bathroom. I do not care if they are waterproof or not. No phone is fecal proof or urine proof. This goes for public urinals also.

    For people saying the nexus 6 is water resistant your wrong its splash resistant that's a huge difference. Nexus 6 has no IP rating at all.
