All this chat about the S7 but for those of us who will still have our S6's for a while yet here is some news I've just learned from EE customers in the UK.

Nobody in EE has even been looking at the Android 6 [Marshmallow] update, so nothing in the pipeline for EE customers.

Wish I'd stuck with my Nexus 5 now. I gave it to my daughter and she's been on Marshmallow for months!

Can anyone recommend a good QI Charger stand [not a pad] for the Nexus 6

Aukey has a good one that's a stand. +Marques Brownlee has a top tech video that has the charger in it. I guess that means it's good.

Hi,

Has anyone in the UK received Marshmallow OTA?

Installed and looking good. The swipe pattern unlock looks smaller on my n6- handy. And on the bottom left of the unlock screen there's the icon to launch voice rather than the phone (though I'd have preferred to have lost the camera instead).

I have great hopes for marshmallow and battery saving on my n6!

This is the area where we planted those seeds you bought from Asda. Absolutely hive of industry with bees, hover wasps and other including some butterflies this afternoon.

Google Photos Desktop  - 
 
I'm already confused by the new Photos App which I have updated to on my phone and tablet and have switched to on my desktop.

All the blurb states free storage up to 16MP whereas in the old Google+ I think it was much lower and therefore quite a few of my later photos taken on my Nexus 5 [8MP] are using up Google Drive space. 

Will this automatically upgrade to zero or do I have to do something. I currently have no camera with the ability to take photos at that resolution so surely the 8.18GB showing as used should reduce to zero?

+Glenn Van de Velde​. So it seems then that Google's claim that this is a stand alone application is false? I assume that in switching to photos.google.com and updating the photos app on my Android devices doesn' t really mean much and that the photos are only sourced from Google+ which took me ages to upload quite some time ago. I further assume, therefore, that if I delete the photos on Google+ to save some of my storage space that they will also disappear from photos.google.com?

I need to import data from a .QIF file but I'm getting the error

The import file xxxx is misformed. Reason: Invalid account name. (xxxxx)(Line 1,121). What does this mean and how do I rectify?

App Issues  - 
 
Installed this morning on my Nexus 6 and when I try to upload to OneNote I get a "service is unavailable" report? 

Also can't seem to get back to the initial menu to select other destinations, although even so OneNote would have been my preference.

Hi +Brian Dorken ,  we're currently investigating why some devices experience slowness. It would be helpful to know what is slow - e.g. the browser UI? loading web pages? Which web pages in particular? Any more detail you can provide would be helpful, thanks!

One major thing as far as I'm concerned at this stage is the inability to scan more than one page for each document. Sorry, but that is a deal breaker for me.

To be fair, the things I did scan were of good quality but there are so many scanners out there with the multi page facilities as explained this app has a good deal of a way to go.
