Users of the Google Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X and the 2014 Nexus 6 are among the few smartphone owners currently enjoying the new Android Nougat flavor on their devices.
While this might seem like a blessing in disguise for this group, not all of them are having the best of times with the new software. There are reports of different issues currently being faced by owners of Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X as well as Nexus 6 as far as the new Android Nougat update is concerned.
The first device that came in with issues was the Nexus 6P. In fact, the OTA update of this device was delayed due to a persistent bug that caused massive battery drains. Google worked out things and later on resumed the update. So, if you are still experiencing this issue, make sure you have updated your Nexus 6P to the latest Nougat version, which started rolling out on September 6th.
While Nexus 6P users were having issues with their batteries, no complaints were coming from Nexus 5X owners. However, the time has come and it is bad. Apparently, the Nexus 5X is experiencing bootloops, where the phone keeps on rebooting. Some claim that carrying out a factory reset takes care of the problem while others are of the view that completely wiping the phone’s cache is the real deal. However, the latest to come from a Google official is that the bootloop issue has nothing to do with Android Nougat. Instead, it is a problem related to the hardware, which means those facing it have to take the phone back to their original sellers.
Still, the official notes that the matter is still being investigated, which means more details will be popping up with time.
Those on the Google Nexus 6 are facing what can be termed as “normal” issues that follow a major software update. There are complaints associated with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, lag as well as battery drains, among others. These should be taken care of in soon-to-come updates, so, make sure you are always using the latest version of Android Nougat, no matter what.
