    Oh, so you have a G3 now or yet to arrive? If you have it, how are you finding the battery life? That's my main concern from reading various forums and reviews. Apparently the 2K display on it isn't quite as efficient as the G4 or maybe the SD801 struggles to power it compared to the SD808.

    Sorry to hijack the thread and discuss this here but I was interested in the 5X and LG are responsible for both.
    I'll let you know, however I'm better at retaining battery life than most people so it might not be helpful, I disable things like Google app because I don't need Google to know everything about my life. I also had the OnePlus with 801 chip, and I think it's still a very fast CPU, you can get about 6hrs screen on time with the 3100mAh battery albeit on a 1080p screen. But it was a phone with lots of little issues and the camera was useless because it lacked a proprietary Oppo camera driver (only available in ColorOS) that causes auto continuous focus for video recording to not work correctly, apparently this affect the OnePlus Two as well, I'm not sure how they're able to sell phones with such egregious flaws.

    I've played with the G3 as well, I think as long as disable all the junk apps and run a clean launcher it will be very adequate, definitely an upgrade from the G2. The G4 software is a bit more refined, but assuming if both devices get as Android 6 update it's not a big deal, but I don't intend to run stock on it.

    Actually it's just as easy in a car as it is near a normal charging port. Sorry, just not seeing how wireless charging can be a deal breaker for anyone unless you're looking for a reason and nitpicking to the highest extent. I have a 40 minute commute each way and I can easily plug in my phone if need be and at my desk, I have a USB cable plugged into my PC that sits above my head. Both of which are really easy to use. Sorry, man.
    I use my phone as my bed side clock and alarm. I use a Forrader Qi charger that stands the phone almost upright. Hard to do with a charging cord at the bottom. Plus it's one less lose cord to fall behind furniture.

    They make tons of wired docks that would do this. I have an Everdock.

    Everdock should work with USB-C. It has a cutout and you thread your charger through it and it holds it in place and hides your wires underneath. I'm sure there are others that do the same. And soon, we will start seeing USB-C docks.

    Not likely until we see a lot more dockable devices using it. I think it's a fail on Google's part to not offer a dock. If you are going to deviate from standard that much, make sure it's properly supported.

    I remember when the N4 came out with wireless charging... and google didnt release their wireless charger for a long time afterwards.. the same sort of questions were asked and people were scrambling to find compatible wireless chargers of every kind.

    But the N4 had a standard USB port you could use. Qi was just an added bonus. Seeing as the target audience for the N5X is largely current N4 and N5 owners, they have removed a feature we have come to use AND combined with a non-standard connector.

    And replaced it with the ability to charge the battery much faster. Given the choice to have any of the 3, I'm going to pick fast charging every time.

    That is highly dependent on usage pattern. I usually get a full day on my N5 and charge overnight. So whether it charges back in 1 or 5 hours does not really matter. offering an upright dock would have gone a long way to quiet the complaints.

    Remember the USB standard long before the N4 USB connector, the USB Mini-b? I'm sure there were complaints when that wasnt included in new devices too. Fact of the matter is that standards change all the time. This USB C will soon be the new standard.

    I get it though, everyone who invested a bunch of money in chargers are feeling ripped off. Such is the way of technological advancements. You got to keep on top of it not to be burned, always.

    From EverDock, regarding USB-C

    We currently don't have a great solution for the USB C connector but are looking into options as to what we could do to support it. In the meantime, if you can get us your USB C connector, we can custom 3D print adapters for it. That may be our best solution since the housing on the different USB C connectors will all be different. In the future we'll probably include a micro USB C cable in the EverDock but right now USB C phones make up a very small percentage of the market.
    And that "very small percentage" comment is why we won't see a lot of docks available.

    Yeah - it's new to be sure - gonna take a while for some of these peripheral guys to catch up and the good ones will soon be ready compared to the ones with bad foresight. It's also the standard for the new Macbook.

    Just have to remind everyone of the N4 and the Qi charger - it was also brand spankin new and everyone had to wait for peripheral companies to catch up.

    If I'm Google and I'm trying to keep cost down to offer this at that price point, wireless charging is easily going to be on my chopping block. Samsung has been the only one so far that's introduced fast wireless charging and while it's not a useless technology on the whole, it's not so widespread and essential at this point that you have to include it when you're trying to build an inexpensive device.
