    Still nothing from google play. Still unable to order. With my N5 having radio issues (just updated the baseband so hope it works) like I mean it will drop the signal. Totally. And still show 3 bars of HSPA but will not send a message. I do fear hardware. It really REALLY sucks in buildings, unlike my previous device before it went splat.

    Seriously looking at the Moto x 2014 pure edition. I don't know...

    Hello Bren! It still says backordered. I called the store closest to me, and they did say that it would be a 2-6 week delivery window. I just need my current phone to hang on until then!

    The DAY before my Nexus 6 arrived, I dropped my N4 on the sidewalk. Didn't break it, but I put a nasty gash in the corner bezel. This phone had been pristine for 2+ years. I think it jumped because it knew. ;)

    It took you over two years to learn that it has a sensor for unloyalty as well? Tsk... :rolleyes:

    Has anyone that purchased directly from Moto able to buy Moto Care? I'm looking for it where they say it is supposed to be and the option isn't there. The email for it came today reminding me to buy within the first 30 days.

    Edit:Was finally able to purchase it. Although I'm not sure how I got to the purchase page?

    Ah OK. I'm looking at the note 4.i watched the side by side comparisons and found the n6 lacking in many areas for my personal tastes. I was contemplating getting that, that's why I compared both devices. Granted they are really different phones, but I think my money is on the note 4 as that is also expandable and the n6 is not. I think. Forgot if it was or not. Again, not knocking nexus. I have a nexus 7 and love it. Just doesn't fit my needs.

    Nope, the nexus 6 doesn't have expandable storage.

    Ordered my 32GB Midnight Blue on Dec. 1st and then was given a "leaves the warehouse by 12/17/14". I was curious if it would ship early because when I bought my N5 on 11/15/13 it stated it would leave the warehouse on 11/26 however I received it at my home on 11/20. My question is for those out there that might have also purchased their N6 on 12/01 in the Play Store, do you show the same release date of 12/17/14 as I do? I chatted with a G rep and they couldn't tell me much, so I'm just afraid I will not receive my phone. I was hoping to get it sooner than stated.

    Both my Nexus 5 & 6 models came in a short time. I've received excellent customer service and great ordering experiences. Upon talking to them Friday about another issue the Nexus rep was candid and said they're recovered from the disorganized launch, more phones will arrive shortly so they can get back on track.

    My Nexus Order for this year's N6 came from the second batch, arriving at my residence quickly.

    Morning gang -

    Well, I am done waiting for Verizon to figure out what they want to do. I went into my local VZW store this weekend to ask them about the 15 day return policy, and found out that for Christmas, all phones purchased between now and Christmas will have the return date set to Jan 15. Very nice, decision made. If VZW decided to sell the Nexus before then, I will probably get it. If they still don't have it by the middle of January, I would feel like Charley Brown trying to kick the football, if I was still waiting...

    So I left the store with a shiny new Note 4.

    My condolences. :oops:

    I hope you have the opportunity to get an N6 while your return window is open. (In all seriousness - enjoy your phone!)

    Congratulations and we'll played. A few weeks with the Note and you'll forget all about that other phone. You dodged a bullet my friend.

    That's entirely subjective. For me, going with a Note 4 on Verizon would mean I'm stuck with Touchwiz for a long time, possibly forever with the security enhancements in lollipop. No thanks!

    Can someone tell me what's the issue with touchwiz? So many people hate it but for what I've seen and experienced, it's still a phone. If I don't like the interface I'll just install a launcher. Many of them are free or very cheap with many themes. I've sampled the note 4 and even with touchwiz I found I had no problems navigating, making calls, or any other smartphone capabilities. I've noticed that some don't like it and I have wondered why. Can someone elaborate?

    While you can change some of the features with alternate launcher, touchwiz is so integrated into Samsung phones that you really are never completely rid of it without flashing a custom ROM. I don't mind it on my Note 10.1, but it was a pig on my S2 and it can be cumbersome.

    If you dodge a bullet by jumping in front of a bus, are you really that much better off? ;)
