Confirmed it doesn't have inductive charging. But it does support quick charge.

Sadly no. This is the only negative IMHO. But with the larger battery. Doze and fast charging I'm hoping the need to trickle charge isn't needed.

I've had the Nexus 6 since launch last year.

I started to use a wireless charger that propped the phone up on my night stand for the past few months. It is great for that purpose and since I use it for an alarm clock it was nice. However with quick charge I don't need to necessarily have to have my phone sitting on a charger all night. My commute into work is enough to top the phone off to 100%.

For my use I've found quick charge to be a much higher priority and useful feature than inductive charging. So I'm not too bothered when I get the 6P I'll no longer have inductive charging.

I'm definitely going to miss wireless charging. My phone sits on a qi pad while at work, and I have one on on my coffee table in the living room for it to sit on.

It was honestly almost a deal breaker for me but my N5 is dying and the only phones that really support qi this year are the Samsung line and I'm not interested in them.

here is the answer from the designers on why it was excluded:

HL> Thanks for being a Nexus fan! We added Qi wireless charging starting with N4 because plugging in USB micro B was such a hassle! (Which way is up!?) With this year’s Nexii, we support USB Type-C which has a reversible connector so there’s no more guessing. AND it charges incredibly swiftly: 1% to 100% in 97 mins on the 6P for example (the first ~45 mins of charging is especially fast). Meanwhile, wireless charging adds z (thickness). So, ease of plugging in + fast charging + optimizing for thinness made us double down on Type-C instead of wireless!
