Google Nexus 6 with Android 7.0 Nougat Better Than the Newer Version
Unfortunately the release of Android 7.1.1 Nougat came with a big disappointment for users around the globe. The update on Nexus 6 appears to have big enough problems so that Google stopped the updating process, short time after the release. Users had issues with SafetyNet and Android Pay, fact that made the updating process to stop.
So are the bugs fixed or not? Although some of the issues were taken care of after the reported glitches, the company decided to release OTA to downgrade to Android 7.0 from Android 7.1.1.
Reasons for the Nexus 6 downgrade to Android 7.0
Recently, the Nexus Community Manager took the stand and said that the OTA update came with some issues and if the users want to receive future OTA updates, they need to downgrade to Android 7.0. But this has some disadvantages too, as it may be needed to factory reset the phone in case of the update it’s not completely successful. The newest version came with a lot of features that Nexus users started to use and appreciate, so going back to Android 7.0 caused a lot of debates on related websites.
Nexus 6 users are not that happy about it
But wait, it doesn’t end here. Angry users commented on the internet after the downgrade OTA came like never before, without a warning that a wipe may be needed. This could lead to very bad feedback from the Nexus 6 users. Also, a lot of apps used on Android 7.1.1 do not work as well on the older version, or they do not work at all.
As a result, users are angry and confused. Hopefully, the company will be able to wipe out this disappointment by coming quick with an explanation, and eventually with a solution.
