One owner who purchased a Google Nexus 6P was delighted with the device. This soon turned to misery though after he updated the handset to Android 7.1.1.
Following the update to Android 7.1.1 Nougat the Nexus 6P got stuck in the dreaded boot loop. He thought that perhaps if he went back to the version of Android before, the handset would be fixed. This didn’t happen though and he even tried several different versions of Android but to no avail. This has left him with a device that he cannot use.
The boot loop issue hasn’t affected that many people and Google doesn’t seem to be interested in offering a fix for it. This could be as they have turned their back on the Nexus 6P and instead are concentrating on the Pixel devices.
The owner said that he contacted Google and because his handset has some cosmetic damage he cannot get a replacement. So he is left holding a Nexus 6P that isn’t a year old and which is wrecked thanks to the Google Android 7.1.1 update.
Surely the onus must be on Google as it was their software that bricked the Nexus 6P, cosmetic damage or not.
