    I saw the site early enough that I *think* I could have gotten in on it. If it had been the 32gb model on sale I probably would have jumped on it. But 16gb is just too small for me. The missus might have been okay with it, but she's perfectly happy with her 2013 Nexus 7, so she's not looking to upgrade at this point.

    I wouldn't mind getting a new 2013 model again. That is if 5.0 doesn't fix the problems mine has been having?

    We both have 2013 Nexus 7 tablets. The only difference is that hers is the 16gb model, while mine is 32gb. Both are unlocked and rooted, although the only real app that we use that requires root is an ad blocker.

    Having the Nexus 7 tablet is what made me fall in love with stock android, and is one of the main reasons why I want to get the Nexus 6 over some of it's competitors.

    Speaking of the Nexus 6, does anyone have any experience ordering from Motorola? I'm thinking that if it doesn't come back into stock at the Play store anytime soon, it might be a good idea to grab it directly from the manufacturer, assuming they open up orders in a timely fashion. I'm still a little leery about getting it directly from one of the carriers. I know, objectively, it should be the exact same model as the ones sold by Google or Motorola, but I can't help thinking that they'll screw it up somehow (I'm looking at you here, Verizon).

    My page monitor went off and the nexus page says they plan on selling more at the play store every Wednesday. They list the carriers but no Verizon....I know it works on Verizon but maybe Verizon is only going that far and isn't stocking it.

    I just saw that as well. Interesting wording that they say get more "in stock" to sell. Which means, to me anyways, that the pre-order was only for phones they had currently in stock.

    If they have them in stock for those pre-ordered, then hopefully they'll send them out sooner rather than later. :)

    Lol.. Perhaps? lol :smokingsomb:

    So, midnight? 8am? (Pacific?) Sheeeeeeeeesh!!!

    yes, yes, I'm being impatient... very... lol!
    Not going to bother till tomorrow morning (8am). Hopefully, page monitor will keep me updated after that :)

    El Goog - ya think this is a big ^#&*%@ game huh??? What is your problem in just letting everyone pre-order and then ship out in order received? </rant>

    I'm in the same boat. However my page monitor only checks every 5 seconds so i'll probably miss the sale.

    I wonder how much stock they expect to receive each week? If it's only the same amount that they got back on the 29th, then we're going to run into the exact same problem as before.

    Well this is going to be a cluster something or other. Guess I am going to have to hope that my phone is fast enough for me to order before they are all gone.

    Oi vey...don't do that to me. The only thing that made that wait tolerable was that epic gnex thread. I am thinking no earlier than the first week of December though on Big Red. I think they want to give the Droid Turbo at least a solid month before releasing the Nexus.

    Looks like Verizon *may* not be carrying stock in stores:


    "The Nexus 6 will also be available in AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and U.S. Cellular stores later in November. Please check with your local carrier store for more information."


    ...Or it could be interpreted as they just won't carry it in November. I tend to lean toward the former given their relationship with nexus in the past.

    Edit: I'm about 2 hours late :eek: You guys are fast!!!

    I disagree. I've been with AT&T since 1996. I have 4 lines on my account. They treat me like a rock star every time I deal with them. Google can't even manage a pre-order.

    Once you get the device in hand Googles customer support is fantastic.

    Unlocking/rooting doesn't void warranties, they'll next day ship you a replacement phone for free, and they even covered water damage or broken screens on the nexus 5.

    Google Play or thru Motorola. Moto does financing if you don't want to pay all at once?

    I've been using AT&T for well over 15 yrs, T-Mobile concurrently for 5 yrs. The quality of customer service has been stellar. Especially with AT&T.

    Google made a mess of the Nexus 4 launch, yet last years Nexus 5 launch was much better which left me thinking perhaps this Nexus 6 launch would be even better. Needless to say it was dreadful.

    I digress for a moment to share that I enjoyed amazing world class customer service from Google Play with the six, yes 6 Nexus 5 models i bought for family members once they requested I get them out of their iPhone's after they tried my Nexus 5. After a full year with these six N5 phones delivering nearly perfect service I'm a huge Nexus enthusiast at this point.

    The Nexus 6 is so ideal for me, I'm choosing to tolerate whatever it takes to buy via Google Play. There's simply too many advantages to go elsewhere.

    Believe me I have had several times when I've dealt with Google and they're so amazing, so professional, courteous, give free shipping both ways, replace your phone without hesitation or suspicion, frankly I am both surprised and delighted at how good they are.

    Precisely my experience with Google! I bought a Nexus 5 last year thinking I would switch from Verizon to AT&T. The coverage for AT&T was not great, and I wanted to stick it out, but in the end I went back to my S4 and Verizon. But along the way:

    - they replaced (with free next day shipping) 2 units, both for the "loose vibration motor"
    - when it came time to return the 3rd one because I couldn't live with EDGE where I used to have LTE on verizon they did so with zero trouble.

    Terrific support and willing to do what's right to keep customers around. The result? I'm willing to pre-order through them even if it means I will get the device a week later than others buying locally.

    Can't recommend GPS enough!

    Maybe true BUT -

    I had a conversation with local Verizon store manager - he said he has been with Verizon a long time, and based on past history his thinking -

    1- (as others have said) Moto Turbo is in full launch promo right now. Big Red does not like to promote 2 'new' flagship phone launches at the same time. So no Nex6 till the Turbo promo fever cools a bit.

    2 - Verizon like to have a fresh promo for Black Friday. He expects either a discount on the Turbo for that weekend, or a Nex6 launch that week.

    If he is wrong, maybe we Red followers will get it on 12/19... But hope I don't have to wait that long. Could be enough for me to make the jump to ATT.


    COMMON VERIZON! HAVE UPGRADE, WILL TRAVEL!

    Early battery test has almost 6hrs SoT, with a lot of wakelocks. I would say an optimized phone should get 6hrs or a bit more.
