Great phone but unless the refurb includes switching out the battery then I'd give it a miss. Just sold mine, won't hold battery for half a day with any moderate use

After posting this deal, I'm not sure if this phone is actually that much of bargain...

Just looked and was released in October 2015, so it's getting a bit long in the tooth!

Great it is running the latest version of Android and still getting monthly security updates. Many manufacturers even on the latest phones, seem to only post the odd security update every six months or so in the first year!

Not a bargain. Used it for 2 years and the battery life is absolutely awful.
Also had this phone, had to get a refund from Google after 16 months due to battery fatigue. Now on a Note 8, obviously a superior phone but battery life on this seems to be degrading also. Built in batteries are just a major problem

I switched to note8 as well and getting around 5h screen on time plus up to 2 days standby when used only sporadically. What's your sot now?

Check any Apps for keepalive status. These are the killers - and never get considered when looking at battery life tests
I bet a factory reset back to blank will see the battery life recover. Then you start adding apps and ......
Can I buy it and swap with Google Pixel XL
To be fair a lot of people had battery issues after a good few months of use and Google were replacing them with new batteries and some lucky people got it exchanged for a Google Pixel XL. So after 2 years of use, I doubt the battery will be up to the standard.
Great phone but having swapped my battery out I still get the phone dying on my around 30 something percent.
I would happily have a thicker, less attractive phone that had a replaceable battery. Unfortunately manufacturers know they’re not adding much each year and a fatigued battery is the only reason people will upgrade. Then they have the audacity to claim they’re eco-friendly.

Yes, the 810 was a bad design with too high a power draw, killing off the battery prematurely, especially any manufactured of higher internal battery defect.
A low power mode setting might help.

I loved my 6p but had to sell it.

Battery would get to 15% then it would shut off, then after a few weeks 17%, and so on until some days it would power off at 40%

Plenty of people had the same issue and Google did a replacement scheme eventually but I traded mine in long before to a recycling site.

Unless the battery ahs been replaced then avoid
This is one major reason why Apple throttles their older iPhones which have a depleted battery to stop them shutting down like this does.
Love my 6p but my battery has now had it and requires a charge part way through the day as it won't hold the charge - will shut off at about 20%.
I would touch a refurbished 6p with a pole - I had one and the battery life was shocking out of the box. Maybe two years old and a return ? Asking for trouble...
Just avoid it. Battery life on this phone is atrocious even with a brand new battery.
The battery was great when I first had one, then battery issues caused it to die on me.

There's a fix, but you have to load a custom OS to only use half the cores or something.

I've done that and my daughter is using it now.

Try and find the older Pixel XL if you don't want to be paying for the latest phones
Not the most robust...
OP - did you mean "Android PURISTS" rather than "purest's" ?
Hmmmmmm.
Still using my Nexus 6p. Latest OS and feels like new except the battery.

Likewise, just ditched mine onto Music Magpie for £85 because the battery gets to 30% then the phone shuts down Highly recommend anyone who gets one of these to install AccuBattery ASAP and check the health level of the battery.

Yeah I agree. A 1st Gen Pixel would be a much better choice for a slightly higher price.
Had mine 2 years in March, love the handset. Accubattery reports health as 88% currently. Charge lasts me from early morning to about 10pm depending on use. No shutdown issues. I haven't updated to Oreo as yet though. I'm wondering if "A1 Pristine Condition" means new, unused, just not in original packaging? Shame they can't elaborate.
