Have owned the phone for about 18 months time to trash it. Poor sound quality most of the time (even though i am on a major wireless network). Severe Battery issues........phone shows Zero battery and shuts off when it reaches 40% - 45% battery level. plugin the charger and it shows it has 50% charge. the charge holds for less than 4 hours of use a day. wend through the drill of deleting apps, factory reset etc....but no change to the phone...
I had left the Apple camp about 4 years back, first tried the HTC 1, which had to be trashed after a about 2 years, thought being a google product would help and choose the Nexus 6P and time to trash the phone after 18 months.
Guess it is time to go back to the Apple Tree :(

What version of Android are you using? This battery issue only seemed to happen to me after updating to 7, wondering if maybe I should downgrade to 6 or upgrade to 8 until this is fixed.
I am also having the exact same problem, my phone only lasts for basically an hour if I actually use it, and definitely shuts down at 25% if not sometimes at a higher percentage. Sometimes even around 35% when watching a YouTube video or my phone is *slightly* could from waiting for the bus...
Neither Google nor Huawei will take responsibility for this battery drain issue that makes the phone unusable. If you are under warranty, you will have some options but if you're not then you're screwed. Which really sucks since the phone can be just over a year old, in excellent condition otherwise but basically becomes unusable like so many people have noted.

Hi all - frustrated owner of a 6P where the phone is basically useless due to the battery/power issues. This really needs to be fixed, especially after the microphone situation. Mine will go from 100-25% in a couple hours and then shut off at 25%.
Was really looking forward and equally disappointed with the Oreo update.
AnonD-73651, 24 Oct 2017Mine turn off at anything below 48%. It started after 7.0 but the Oreo update has killed it. The same started for me after the Android 8 updated. Now I can NOT use my phone for even 10 mins before it shuts down. It will go from 100% battery to 40% in a blink and then shuts off.
afzal, 16 Oct 2017Galaxy note 4 better than this battery draining device Are kidding man. Note 4 is an old story.

I'm coming up to the two year anniversary for this phone. The only con was the battery. For example, if the phone is at 20%, it would shut down automatically. I am aware of the battery problems of the Nexus 6P. Recently visited a local cellphone repair shop and had the battery replaced. At the moment, I'm using Android Oreo (8.0.0.) and will continue using my Nexus 6P until the next phone upgrade (Samsung Galaxy Note 8).

Dan, 08 Oct 2017Do not buy. Battery randomly stops at 50% Battery last 1 1/2 hours after 1 1/2 years No warranty.Dan it seems your battery has weared out. You have to visit service centre and ask for a new battery. 30 bucks should be the cost for replacement.
