Google Nexus 6P Comes with Fixes for the Infamous Battery Issue
One of the best Android phones ever manufactured is Google’s own Nexus 6P and what makes the device so special is the fact that its equipped with impressive hardware pieces alongside the constant stream of software updates Google is rolling out. In fact, Nexus 6P is among the first devices that received Google’s latest Android 7.0 Nougat operating system update .
While receiving the latest firmware update sounds good, in Nexus 6P case it isn’t. The reason behind this is that once users decide to update Nexus 6P to Nougat, the device’s battery starts malfunctioning and randomly powering down. This is quite a major issue since the only way to power up the device is to plug in the charger and this can be come troublesome if the device powers down while the user isn’t home. What’s even more annoying is the fact that even if the device has 60 percent battery life, the device keeps shutting down.
Reports are showing that a large number of Nexus 6P users have downgraded their operating system version back to Android 6.0 Marshmallow and interestingly enough, the problem doesn’t go away. The only solution Nexus 6P users have is to replace the device’s battery with a new one but not everyone has the extra cash to buy a new battery. Well, Google took note of its user feedback and instructed Nexus 6P users to contact the Google Store Support Team. This might not be the perfect solution since Google’s call centered is busy and Nexus 6P users have to wait in line for long times but nonetheless it’s a solution and Google is surely working non-stop to fix this problem.
