Google Nexus 6P: Android 7.1 Nougat Is A Sour Trap!

By  | 

One of the perks of owning a smartphone that is directly managed under Google is being the first in getting new features as well as software updates. We have seen it countless times before with the Nexus phones, which tends to be the first to get updated with a newly launched firmware.

But unfortunately, the streak ended with the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat update as the Nexus phones were far behind rival devices in receiving a firmware update. The situation got worse when Google also denied the Nexus 6P from getting Daydream VR support.

We don’t know about you but it feels like Google no longer wants to associate itself with the Nexus nameplate as they want to move onto the new Pixel phones. We dare say this because every decision made by Google in regards to the Nexus 6P made things worse than it already is.

The latest happening is with the Android 7.1.1 Nougat update, which leads to a large number of Nexus 6P getting stuck in a boot loop. The problem is so huge but the complaints made to Google have fallen on deaf years. Google offered zero response about the matter, which is quite shocking if you are to consider how efficient they have been in recent years.

One owner of the Nexus 6P that is stuck in boot loop sent his device to an authorized service centre but was denied to use his warranty due to cosmetic damages on his phone.

The whole incident is a real mess and the Nexus 6P users are at the bitter end of it. This may sound absurd but we are suspecting Google of bricking the Nexus 6P so that owners will upgrade to the Pixel phones. What do you think?
