Some Nexus 6P owners are experiencing weird battery problems on Android Nougat

Some Google Nexus 6P owners are reporting a strange battery issue after upgrading to Android 7.0 Nougat. The device stops working under certain circumstances and can only be restarted when plugged into a power source.

The issue can be seen in the YouTube video below. The uploader says he is using a recently acquired RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) Nexus 6P running Android 7.0. After taking a few photos with the handset, the Nexus 6P goes black and is completely disabled until the owner plugs the power cable in and waits for the battery icon to appear. Only then can the power button be used to restart the phone.

As is the case with any other piece of software, Google has decided to ditch some interesting ingredients that were previously available in early versions Android Nougat. A navigation bar is one such ingredient that got left on the cutting room floor, so you can’t taste it in the latest version of the mobile OS… well, unless you have a Nexus 6P.

The nav bar customizer gives you the tools to move and remove buttons or add new ones. You can also set the spacing for buttons and adjust icon size. There are options for the Clipboard and Keycode, although they don’t seem working in the nav bar customizer’s current form.

Samsung’s newest Note device brings a few refinements to the established formula, but it has to contend with a few of the other flagship devices that are similar in size. And what better competitor to put it up against than what is considered the purest Android experience? This is the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 going up against the Nexus 6P.

We are looking at two different devices with very different styles and perspectives on the Android experience. Even from first glance, it is clear that both devices bring unique styles to the space. The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 continues the glass and metal design that has permeated the most recent iterations of the Galaxy line, though there are some very noticeable refinements.
