Nexus 6P users now reporting bootloop problem after the shutdown issue

26 December 2016 4

Recently, it was reported that a number of Nexus 6P users were suffering from the issue of premature and random battery shut down on their units. While the reason behind the issue is unknown and is still under investigation from Google and Huawei, there are new reports suggesting that Nexus 6P users have a new issue to worry about which is even serious than the previous one.

Some Nexus 6P users have reported that their units are suffering from random bootloops which continue to happen until the battery of the phone dies to zero. The affected units only boot up until the Google logo and there's no boot animation. These users have also mentioned that there seems to be no known solution for the issue as the situation still persists even after numerous data wipes and factory image flashes.

As on Google's behalf, there is only one comment which was posted on Reddit a few months ago. The comment reads,

"We understand that a very small number of users are experiencing a bootloop issue on your device. We are continuing to investigate the situation, but can confirm that this is strictly a hardware related issue. For those of you that are currently experiencing this, please contact your place of purchase for warranty or repair options."

This clearly means that the Nexus 6P boot loop issue is not something new and has been there for quite some time. And during all this time, Google has failed to come up with any fix for the issue. The best possible solution for the moment found to be is to return the faulty Nexus 6P and get a refund. While the actual reason for the problem is unknown, it seems like devices running Nougat 7.0 and 7.1.1 are the ones affected by it.

The Huawei Nexus 6P isn't still available. To be notified when it becomse available click here.

  • It really looks a very curious case. The bootloop continues until the battery dies down? And isn't there any way to stop the bootloop before the battery comes down to zero? Why should it continue for ages?

      • One way out could be the thing that you can remove the battery in between. Though it's not a good practice to remove the battery this way without shutting the device down, you can do that to stop the bootloop process in between.

        • Yeah, the 6P has been facing battery issue for a while. But the bootloop is really something very serious. I don't know what the issue could be.

            • Yeah, actually. But what's the root cause of the problem? I think until and unless that isn't known, it wouldn't be worthwhile to keep talking about just the possibilities alone.
