5 of the most popular conspiracy theories debunked

Google Pixel made it big in India taking 10 percent share of the country's premium smartphone segments in October. However, just like most smartphones, Pixel has its own share of problems, glitches, bugs and other issues that need solutions.

By the end of October, Google delivered a total of 33,000 units of Pixel in India, overtaking Samsung's Galaxy Note 7, Economic Times reported.

Some of the common issues with Google Pixel includes charging problems, poor Wi-Fi connection, can't send or receive text messages, constantly crashes, gets unusually warm, Bluetooth problems, Fingerprint scanner problems, screen is not rotating right, software can't be updated, and poor battery life Yahoo! reported.

Solution for Battery issue

For the battery issue, users can try a different outlet, a different charger, or try to restart their Pixel. They can also try to press and hold for 20 seconds the phone's Volume Down and Power buttons. If they see the Android icon and the word 'Start' surrounded by an arrow, they should press and hold the Volume Down button until 'Power Off' appears. They can select it using the power button. After that, Pixel should be charged for 30 minutes, and then they can restart the phone.

Solutions for Other Common Issues

For the Wi-Fi problem, restarting the device could help. Just like most phones, an app might be causing this problem. Users of the Pixel should put their devices in Safe mode to avoid apps from disrupting the Wi-Fi connection.

For sending text messages efficiently, it would be best to turn off iMessage before using the device, especially if the user used an iPhone before Pixel.

Apps are usually causing phones to constantly crash. Users should check their apps or force quit apps that they don't use to avoid crash.

Botting Pixel to its Safe mode can help with the Bluetooth problem of the device. Doing this would also help for the Fingerprint issue.

Restarting the device, rebooting it on Safe mode, and checking its apps are some of the most common solutions for Pixel problems.
