I could see them being used by a unit in a shooting phase before a charge, but we're the Tau... We don't charge (at least not with the units that get these grenades).
I could also see them being used during overwatch against an oncoming charge, since the weapon description doesn't specify -1 to Shooting Attacks it would apply in the Fight phase as well. But that's extremely situational, and only hits on a 6...
Outside of these very specific examples, is there any reasonable use for our Photon Grenades?

In 6th I had a lone survivor of a crisis team charge into a unit of the daemon flamer dudes (crazy, I know) because they'd been mulching my infantry. I'd decided I had enough of that. That lone crisis suit bogged down the unit for at least two turns. May have even killed a couple, but I don't recall. Either way, I do remember that delaying those guys won me the game. Even if we're terrible in combat, never underestimate the value of a well timed charge.

Overwatch is resolved at BS 6+ regardless of modifiers

It almost sounds like sheeting
