Were LG and Huawei in cahoots when the last generation of Google smartphones were being developed? Because that’s how it seems now that the Nexus 6P, for the first time, is experiencing an issue that’s supposed to be exclusive to LG-made phones.
We’re talking about random bootloops affecting users of the 5.7-inch Nexus, and this was confirmed by a Google rep some time ago. However, the issue is becoming more prevalent among users today.
This isn’t the only issue users have been facing, as it comes on the back of a recent battery problem that causes the Nexus 6P to instantly shut off when its battery charge drops to certain levels, or for many, at random points.
Hearing bootloop issues on the Nexus 4, 5, or 5X is just another day in the life – it’s so common. But it shouldn’t be expected for the Nexus 6P. Unfortunately, no one has discovered a proper fix to the issue yet, which means that it’s most likely caused by faulty hardware.
Time To Go?
There are also many Nexus 6P users that face a slightly different freezing problem, where the device just hangs at random and forces users to perform hard resets before it becomes operational again.
This happens several times a day with no permanent solution available apart from simply tossing it. Even the magic pill of clearing cache partition via recovery mode hasn’t worked for anyone, so don’t bother going there.
Interestingly, the only recent Nexus device without any ailments is the Nexus 6 from 2014. Perhaps Nexus 6P owners might want to consider getting a refurbished or used model as a replacement and cure to these mounting woes. The Nexus 6 is a safe and reliable bet – that much can be said.
