Re: Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X on Rogers?

Hope you did some cable research. An engineer from google reviewed a bunch of type c to type a cables and found that very few of them met the power spec. The Belkin and iOrange cables looked ok, but most of the cheaper ones did not.

The only reason it wasnt at my store until evening was just because of the route for that driver. The phone was in the London UPS depot by early morning. I chose to have the 6P sent to a different store for this reason.

 

Careful getting USB type C cables, many aren't up to spec. One of the guys from Google has actually taken to Amazon to review many of them http://www.amazon.com/gp/pdp/profile/A25GROL6KJV3QG/ref=cm_cr_rdp_pdp

I believe the phones will ship tonight, so anyone who doesnt live that far from Toronto will likely get it tomorrow. There is still a good 4 or 5 hours left for them to ship out tonight.

No problem. I'm always careful about getting cables, especially when its a new connector. A bad cable can at worst cause your device essentially blow up, so I don't take chances and stick with manufacturers I trust. For that reason, I ordered spare cables from Google.

Re: Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X on Rogers?

I'm going with Belkin. The Google one's are only USB 2.0. And I realize the phone is too, but if I get only 3.1 cables from the start, then I should be futureproofed.
