Nexus 6P Users Claim Battery Drop-Off Issue after Nougat Update; Devices Shut Down When Indicator Shows 25%
Huawei Nexus 6P devices that have been updated to Android Nougat are reportedly experiencing battery drop-off issue.
Nexus 6P Review: Users Report Premature Shut Down
Nexus 6P users have reported battery drop-off problem in Google Product forums, stating that their handsets experienced premature shut down after the indicator reached 25 percent.
Another user has even claimed that the device suddenly went off after indicator showed 40 percent battery left. The cause is yet to be revealed but the problem arises after users reportedly updated their handsets OS to Android Nougat 7.0.
Google apparently isn't making things better as the Nexus battery drop-off issue is labeled as 'Low Priority', according to 9to5Google.
Safety over Technical
While this is considered as a technical complaint, GreenBot is more concerned on the safety factor if the device unexpectedly shuts down - then users won't be able to make an emergency call.
Nexus 6P users who experience similar issue are encouraged to share the problem in Google Product forums and threads. Google and Huawei were silent for awhile until a recent report from Phone Arena has indicated that both giants are currently investigating the problem.
