Google Nexus 6P update to Android 7.1.2 Nougat is pathetic

Nexus 6P

For a phone that has a decent battery capacity of 3450mAh, one would only expect the Google Nexus 6P to deliver a screen on time of at least 6 or more hours, but this is simply not the case, especially after the latest update to Android 7.1.2 Nougat.

It’s been a while since Google started rolling out the OTA update to Android 7.1.2 Nougat to the Nexus 6P, but it’s only recently that some owners of the phone have made the choice to jump from Android 7.1.1 to the newest version of the Nougat dessert.

As it appears, this was the worst ever choice because the phone now manages a measly 2 hours of screen on time, which is simply pathetic.

When a new software update comes in, one of the major things users expect to get from it is improved battery performance. But with the Google Nexus 6P update to Nougat 7.1.2, things move from good to worse once it’s installed. It’s true that the new OS brings a few other goodies to the 6P, among them fingerprint gestures alongside stability improvements and bug fixes, but what would be the purpose of all these when you have to charge your phone several times a day?

Considering that the update to v7.1.2 Nougat doesn’t carry any other major additions to the Nexus 6P, one would see this move as the worst decision to make. Furthermore, none of the troubleshooting fixes offered by the Google Nexus 6P team on the official website work and it gets even worse knowing that doing a complete factory reset still doesn’t help solve the problem. So, what is really going on with the latest Android 7.1.2 Nougat update for the Nexus 6P?

It’s possible that some people out there are not having any issues with the battery life of the 6P, but for those who are having this problem, what options are available to help stabilize the battery life of this glorious Nexus 6P? Feel free to share them via the comments section below.
