Nexus 6P Issues Worse On Android 7.1.1 Nougat

By  | 

Everyone was excited about the latest Android update, but it looks like it has brought on more headaches for Nexus 6P users.

According to Phandroid, some Nexus 6P users had initially reported that their devices shut down on its own despite having more than 30 percent of juice left.

However, reports have revealed that a bug, first reported in the Android bug tracker last year, looks to be acquiring more attention as more devices are being impacted.

This issue results in the devices going through a boot loop that doesn’t seem to end, unless you flash it with factory images. Unfortunately, it isn’t possible on some devices as they have trouble going into recovery mode, too.

A brief survey of users with this problem reveal that this is common among all versions of Android 7.0 Nougat and it seems to be happening more often on the Android 7.1.1 stable release.

Phandroid reports that 57 percent of affected devices are unable to access the recovery mode, which is a serious cause for concern.

Having said that, this isn’t the first of such occurrences with Nexus devices. Late last year, a fraction of Nexus 5X users had returned their devices to LG due to an issue that made the devices bricked.

Let’s hope this doesn’t happen again.
