Many owners believe that the Nexus 6P is the best device of the Nexus family and this is backed up by various polls online. However, reports on issues on the Nexus 6P have been on the rise lately.
According to a Redditor, his Nexus 6P has gone from bad to worse. His problem began when his device suddenly started leaping from a high battery percentage all the way down to zero. The Nexus 6P then automatically shuts down without even a warning.
Although the problem occurs indoors where it is warm, it becomes worse when the device is in cold weather conditions, as described by the Nexus 6P owner.
The frustrated owner couldn’t take it any longer and so, he contacted Google for a replacement unit – but that seems to have only added to its frustrations.
The replacement unit arrived with the same issue; the only difference was that this time it was worse. The owner reached out to Google, once again, and they agreed to send him a second replacement unit.
This didn’t cure his frustrations, either, as it was also faulty in terms of its battery. The owner said that the second replacement device charged unrealistically fast and discharged at the same speed.
The Redditor wasn’t alone, however, as many other owner chimed in with their own stories of frustrating battery issues on their Nexus 6P devices.
Well, could the Android 7.0 Nougat be behind this?
Huawei manufactured the Nexus 6P, running on Snapdragon 810 and powered by a 3,450mAh battery, for Google. This device features a 5.7-inch screen with a 12.3MP back camera along with an 8MP secondary camera.
