Google Nexus 6P: Battery Woes Worsen

By  | 

There have been multiple reports on users experiencing frustrating battery issues with their Nexus 6P. And now, another user has taken to Reddit to vent on the annoying problem.

According to the user, Bniz23, his Nexus 6P has been jumping from a high percentage of battery down to 0 percent. The device then shuts down automatically without any prior warning.

Original device’s battery history

The user added that although the problem has occurred a couple of times while he was sitting in a warm room, it seems to be accelerated when the device is in cold weather locations.

The user clearly had enough of this frustration so he called up Google for a replacement device. But, nothing has gotten better for him.

Replacement device’s battery history

The replacement device came with the same issue – only worse. And so, he contacted Google once again and received his second replacement device.

However, this device was also faulty when it came to its battery levels. To make it worse, the second replacement device appeared to charge unrealistically fast and discharge about the same speed.

Bniz23 isn’t alone in this as his Reddit post garnered a couple of other Nexus 6P users who are facing this same problem.

What do you think could be fueling this frustrating battery issue on the Nexus 6P?

The Nexus 6P, a device manufactured by Huawei for Google, sports a 5.7-inch display along with a 12.3MP rear camera and an 8MP selfie snapper. Powered by a 3450mAh battery, the Nexus 6P runs on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810.

    Same problem for months now. Seems to die when changing screens after multiple open apps. It’s as if what the device is trying to do grossly overloads the battery causing shutdown. If I keep charge above 25% this happens fairly rarely, and doesn’t happen at all if charging.
