I got this device back in December 2016 due to unavailability in my region. I upgraded it immediately to Nougat and it worked perfectly fine. Luckily, I'm one of those users not plagued by the dreaded boot loop. I'm now running 8.1.0 (Oreo) and screen on-time is about 3-4 hours with mixed use (gaming, web browsing, video playback, camera shooting). Idle time is still remarkable, and this phone can get by with a single charge for a full day of light-moderate use most of the time.
I'm just a bit disappointed that I can no longer play AAA mobile games on high settings with smooth framerates like PUBG, but hey, the Snapdragon 810 is already an old processor, and driving a 1440p screen is well above its capabilities when it comes to demanding games. I get that. The device now also shows signs of performance degradation with micro-stutters every now and then, but they're tolerable. I'm still planning to use this device until December of this year, before I upgrade it to hopefully, a Pixel 3.
this phone is way to big for most pockets and with the power button and volume buttons so close together i would never buy another one
bettery life is worst higly recomended not to buy worst phone ever used
Purchased my Nexus 6p on March 2016. till now it was working fine. Today suddenly encountered bootloop death. Never expected a flagship phone from a reputed company like this. Owners situation will be terrible after spending a whole month salary for such a flagship phone and finally unexpected death like this.
Battery half-dead after 6 months and trash after one year of heavy use (CPU throttling and 2-3 hours screen-on-time). I know that Snap 810 was quite a dissapointment, but with this level of battery degrading - good device gone total trash.
Battery flakes with time, really badly, and its extremely difficult to replace. I get about 15 minutes of screen time now. Yuck.
My Nexus 6P cannot use Wifi in China. Online info tells that this was due to its special online Wifi verification via a China blocked web site.
Really an awesome device. Performance is very good. Camera also Amazing and such a great DSLR with cameraNX app. Love my device. Thanks Google.
I got it in December 2015 and trust me haven't come across any issues at all till date ...successfully upgraded it Everytime ..still loving it
Got it a few years back. Encountered some software problems in the beginning relating video playback but after a few patch releases everything went back to normal. No issues since then. Hands down - best android phone I've had yet.
I got my Nexus 6p on October 2015. After updating to nougat the battery drains quickly and the performance was okay. After the Oreo update battery backup was so poor and the performance and memory management was worst. Still love this device and it's camera but it's performance was unbearable. Last week I was unlocked the bootloader and rooted my device to install custom ROM (lineage OS 14.1) so I downgrade my device to 7.1.2 and flashed the lineage OS 14.1 now it's performance is so great but sadly battery backup is like before. If you need a good performance you may install custom ROM. You should be happy with its performance. Note: Lineage OS is very stable than others.
Got mine since dec 2015 and since last year battery drain issues and shuts down at 45%
I blocked all the updates since Android 6.0.1 build MTC20L.
I got scared after all the known issues.
So far, it still works but I need to charge it twice a day
Same issue here also. Bought Nexus 6P in India. The phone is going into bootloop. Huawei, the hardware people blames Google and Google passes the buck onto Huawei. Problem still unresolved. The Authorised Service Centre is asking for INR 11,500/- (1/3rd of the original cost i.e. INR 42,000/-) for replacement of Motherboard. Will never repeat the same mistake again. All, please beware of both Huawei & Google.
got my nexus 6p @decembre 2015, and in the last year it does not survive one day without charging, my nexus turns off in the cold weather at 50%-70%, this is totally terrible, i cant turn it on until ive got a charger. I will never buy any Smartphone by Google
Bought two of these, both phones would randomly reboot. The batteries started to really degrade after 14 months. After 20 months both phones had limited battery life, so I had to be careful what I used them for away from a charger. Both phone batteries have lost about 60-70% of their capacity and the units are being sent back under warranty. Shame, the phones are otherwise nice. I don't like phones without easily swappable batteries because of this phone.
