    I think he may be referring to this post:

    Those wakeups are the norm from what I've experienced on the L dev preview. Whats even more impressive is that he got that kind of battery while while having a terrible cellular signal.

    Is anyone else worried about build quality? The higher price and the fact that it's moto gave me a lot of hope. But the Nexus 9 is a lot pricier than previous tablets and is supposed to be "premium" as well (and HTC's M7/M8 afaik have great build quality) but then there's the terrible light bleed many have as well as this defect.

    I'm not worried at all. HTC messed that up.

    I bought a 2nd Gen Moto X, build quality is exemplary. Don't waste time worrying, I'm confident the Moto made Nexus 6 will be simply stellar.

    I say relax, breathe, be patient.

    Yeah I'm hoping they had to cut corners on cost/QA somehow there and the N6 won't suffer anything like that.

    It just seems like Nexus has become synonymous with "more hw defects than flagship phones". No phone is without its minor flaws, but I'm thinking back to the gnex and the fact that it took me 4 devices to get one that didn't have horrible plaid banding or a radio that died 10x a day. My N7 2012 was great, no issues there. So just unlucky with the gnex I guess, though the two N5's I had both had the vibration motor defect.

    Hopefully it'll be fine. :D

    I checked at midnight.

    And I set my alarm for 3am.

    And I've been checking every half hour since 8am.

    Dont judge :D

    That was then, this is now.

    I bought SIX Nexus 5 models at the request of family members, each of them so impressed with my Nexus 5, they asked me to buy them one to replace their iPhone 5S models.

    Now one year later, we're still enjoying these trouble free N5's. Next up for us? A half dozen Nexus 6's :D

    Yes six.

    I'm blessed with a great family and a terrific career.

    It's my understanding that Google will have a minimum of two Nexus 6 phones to sell each Wednesday :D

    I am always afraid that the instant I check the forum is when they will release the orders and sell out...

    I've seen it do that if your default card is expired. I had to fix mine this morning.

    Maybe remove that card and add it again or add a new card in addition to that one as a backup. Sorry that's pretty rough...

    You could try buying something else in the play store and not completing the order if that will help.
