Lets Talk About: Affected by Early Shutdowns Nexus 6P Units Following Android Nougat Update

Finally again Google has already released Android 7.0 Nougat for all compatible Nexus devices. In fact, the search giant pushed a much newer Android 7.1.1 update to both Nexus and Pixel devices, but many customers claim these updates brought some bugs that now affect their smartphones.

Since Google rolled out Android 7.0 Nougat to the Nexus 6P, many owners complain that their smartphones have started to randomly shut down even though their batteries had enough juice to power them.

A huge thread on Reddit has been opened where Nexus 6P owners share their issues with the device following the Nougat update. Some of them confirmed that their smartphones shut down with as much as 60% battery remaining.

Others claim their phones unpredictably shut down when the battery was getting close to 10-15%, so there doesn't seem to be a pattern here.

In order to make Google listen to these complaints, more Nexus 6P owners affected by the problem must report it on the issue tracker.

Unfortunately, no workaround is available for this issue and the cause is unknown, so u
