Have they resolved the battery drain issue on these?

EE replaced my Nexus 6p for an S7 edge, they said to me that battery dran is non repairable.

It's an option to collect if so inclined

It is showing that you have three options. One of which happens to be collection from store.

90 day warranty says it might be very good buy if battery is not knackered.

£200 at Cex for a grade B model might be a better option. 2 year warranty as well!

EDIT- £180 on EE grade B. Cheaper still at Grade C, but you run the risk of it having had a hard life.

Yeah thats what I thought. I know a few people who have a 6p and ever since one of the Android updates, the battery drains at a ridiculosuly fast rate and the phone completely switches off around the 30/40% battery life mark. They've done factory resets, rooted the phone etc, and still no luck. The phone itself is brilliant and the screen is the best I've seen but the battery issue will be inevitable and completely puts me off the phone, especially as you won't get no support from Google to resolve.

And hows your edge?. Im using one as a stop gap as my other main phone became faulty. So far, i've had to charge it 2 sometimes 3 times per day. Awful battery.

I got the issue coming from developer Oreo to full OTA Oreo. Then after all the Google apps and services started to update around a week later mine settled back to normal. But had seen other users saying the same going from Marshmallow to Nougat. Certainly agree with the screen found it so difficult to find another device to head to as always thought hardly any compared to the 6P screen. Eventually settled on the S8 Plus.

Carphone warehouse gave me a full refund on my 20 month old 6p, got a new pixel xl for the money

Works brilliantly. I charge it all night and it'll last me from around 7:30am until around 8/9pm. I use my phone a lot through the day as well.

Had the 5x with the bootloop issue. Never again. Great phone while it was alive but that was only 1 year.

Xaomi since and no probs, at a third of the price.

5x was made by LG,this is made by Huawei.

I've had my 6P since it came out (from EE for my work line) and never had a battery drain issue.

Battery lasts me a couple of days still. My Pixel battery lasts barely a day.

When my Pixel 2 xl arrives, I'll probably keep my Nexus 6P and sell my Pixel.

So what is better to go for? From Laptops Direct or from CEX?

I did notice the battery draining quickly after an update some months ago but didnt seem to last long. Think i removed a lot of old apps so not sure if something there was causing a conflict with the update. Runs fine now.

Absolutely love this phone, had it nearly 2 years now and come contract end i'll be keeping it and going sim only. Had a few flagship samungs in my time which i liked but this phone is my favourite. Son loves the big screen for Youtube and games also.

Alot of helpful posts here.
Mine arrives Monday . If still in stock ill give appraisal of battery.
Suspect these are direct from Google will see ....

The Nexus 6P was a good phone in 2015 and is a phone that I do really like the design of, but the battery life is awful. I've had a few over the past couple of years (warranty replacements and a couple of second hand ones from eBay) and they have all had major issues. For that price, you could get a far superior phone. The Snapdragon 810 processor is outdated and quite slow as well. I recently changed my latest 6P for a Moto Z Play for the same price and it is a far superior phone.

Cracking phone, but when you only get a small warranty you still might be better off hunting down a nearly new S7 on eBay for a similar price.

Incidentally, I'm rather enjoying the LG X Mach/Fast that you can still pick up on eBay for £114. 5.5" 4K screen, 3GB ram, dual sim, decent camera... Battery much better than I expected too. Worth a look.

As someone who used the 6P and sold them, I've seen loads with the battery cut-out at 30% too. It's manageable and doesn't really ruin what's a good phone otherwise, you just need to charge before 30% ideally and most people top-up charge during the day anyway. If it's under light load it should go all the way down to 0% (I think it's heavy drain that makes it turn off before 0, in reality it's not much different to older iPhones).

That simply means the battery is failing or incorrectly callibrated.

I wonder if fast charging killed the batteries.

Just an FYI there is option to upgrade warranty to 12 months. Ill advise price upon delivery.

Laptop direct as it is grade A

The 30% auto power off problem is an issue with the battery, and it needs to be replaced once it starts happening regularly.

The issue happened for many people around the same time as the battery in the phone started to deteriorate after so many charging cycles.

Huawei will repair for free if still under their 2 year warranty (my phone started having the issue around the 18month mark).

I went direct to them when CPW who I bought the phone from were useless in getting it fixed, due to them not being able to write up a detailed fault report to give to engineers.

When I sent my phone back to Huawei for repair I included a letter that outlined the issue in detail, evidence from AccuBattery that the battery only was at 60-70% original capacity, and also links to reddit pages where it was proven that replacing the battery fixed the issue.

I got my phone back within two weeks and it is now like new.

Fantastic phone, lovely screen, front facing stereo speakers, and great camera (which can be enhanced with zero lag version by installing the Pixel Camera app from the XDA forums).

Mine is back in for repair the second time with this exact issue. They replaced the battery and the back case that they cracked. Had it back but the screen wasn't attached proudly... doh! Hopefully be all okay once returned as really missing it! Turn around was quick if not for having to send it back.

When I bought my Acer r13 I received an email after offering it.
Has to be taken pretty quickly few days from.memory.

Not worth the risk. Bootlooping is a common issue. Both mine and my brother's died this way. Plenty more reports of it on Reddit. Oh and the early shutdown issue...

Ah, so I have to buy it first before I'm offered the warranty. I'll have a ponder. Thanks for getting back.

The phone is (or was) great, but the battery issue is not, and given how many people are affected with it, it is impossible to recommend the 6P, even at this price. To anyone contemplating a purchase: Don't be misled into thinking this only affects a small amount of 6P users, you only need to read the comments here alone.

Having a phone which turns off randomly when the battery is anywhere from 5-50% is a complete nightmare. Google/Hauwei have been useless. I returned mine for repair, and the replacement was exactly the same.
Edited by: "geowars2" 10th Nov

Can confirm that replacing the battery fixes the issue. Phone feels like new. Just can't justify how Google expects people to pay nearly £900 for a pixel 2 which has near enough the same hardware specs as the two year old 6p

On a 6P with a new battery right now and it drains very quick. Not the best phone I've ever used anyway but it's decent. Battery drain is just too much though.

Glad I went with the Moto X style instead. Still going okay so far. Only negative is the battery mostly, the quad screen drains it quite easily.

After this xaomi I'd struggle with poor battery life again, couldn't be doing with twice daily charges. This goes 2 days on a full charge.
