Nexus 6P users continue to report battery failure
Last month, Nexus 6P users reported an issue saying that after updating Android 7.0 Nougat, their devices were shutting down abruptly despite showing sufficient battery life. It appears as Google still haven’t fixed the issue as Nexus 6P users continue to report battery failure through the thread and complaint forum of the search giant.
According to the AndroidPolice, the issue on Nexus 6P smartphones has already been reported on the Google’s Issue Tracker however as of now it holds a precedence of “small” on the website. Some users had reported that their battery died even when their battery life was as high as 60 percent.. most users complained their battery was dying out between 10 and 60 percent and the issue seems more common in the areas with cold climate.
One of the biggest problems with the Nexus 6P’s battery failure issue is that several people have ended up in the emergency situation where many were unable to contact their family because of the fact that their battery died unpredictably. As per 9to5Google, a user reported that one day when he was stuck in traffic for 2 hours due to multiple car crashes. He had over 50 percent battery on the phone and when he tried to call his family to inform them about the situation his phone suddenly died.

While some Nexus 6P users tried to roll back to the earlier Android version, the issue still continued. Though the battery allegedly started shutting down at levels lower that it used in the Android 7.0 Nougat.
Seeing that issue has now been reported by several Nexus 6P users, it is high time that search giant took the necessary step and will soon roll out an update t resolve the issue before it ends up creating more trouble.
