    Just got my Nexus 9 yesterday, took from noon until about 7PM to get all the updates including to Marshmallow. Got to be the slowest new phone come up I've ever experienced.

    Charging took forever because the phone was on and active for all that time and the charging is pretty weak on this device, which doesn't help.

    Got my Project Fi data sim today and stuck it in and all is good. Couldn't beat the roughly $350 w/tax for the 32Gb LTE version.

    Loving it now that things are all in place. Used it quite a bit today and it seems to sip power so the slow charging won't be as big an issue as I thought it might.

    It's a tablet, not a phone. It has a bigger battery, screen and charges slower if being used.

    Yeah, I know. This isn't my first rodeo. Even considering all that, it is very slow at charging and that complaint has been raised a lot.

    Glad I kept my N7 then. It charges up without any issues.
