Google Nexus 6P: Is This Just A Problem Handset Or Is It Unlucky?

By  | 

While the Google Nexus 6P is said to be a superb handset, this is also a handset that does have some issues.

Owners have been saying that their Google Nexus 6P goes into landscape mode entirely of its own accord and then it has to be restarted for it to go back into portrait mode.

Another issue that is common is with owners taking a call on the Nexus 6P and some people have also said that the device has issues with the sensors on the touchscreen display.

Of course while there have been some issues on the Google Nexus 6P other owners haven’t reported any issues at all.

But do you own the Google Nexus 6P and if so have you had any problems with the handset?

    I own a nexus 6p and while I’ve never encountered any of the listen about issues,mine has a bad habit with Bluetooth that gets really annoying:If I play music via my JBL XTREME Bluetooth Speaker, any whatsapp voice messages don’t have any sound, they play but they seem empty.Then, when I disconnect the speaker, my phones internal speakers don’t work anymore and if I change volume, the volume bar still Shows the Bluetooth sign even if Bluetooth is completely turned off. In order to fix this, I have to reconnect to the speaker but don’t play any sounds over it, then disconnect by turning off the speaker.
    That’s very annoying. Also, if I visit a website via typing in the direct URL, the task/Tab gets closed as soon as I Switch to another app or the homescreen which can be extremely frustrating when reading articles.

    I get the Nexus 6P just recently and have to say that it is a brilliant phone.

    I use it heavily for various things (news, weather, internet radio, browsing, email, NAS connected music, youtube, messaging) and cannot say I have seen any of the faults you describe, or any others for that matter.

    Brilliant phone that has been a worthy successor to my New Nexus 5.

    It’s a crap phone. Huawei tech Support told me to keep the volume turned way down to prevent a known speaker echo problem. I sold the phone.

    We have owned two of them since their initial availability and encountered no problems with daily use.

    I had a problem where people could not hear me when I used my phone to make calls (no Bluetooth or wired headset, or speakerphone). Lately my speakerphone and music volume was getting lower and less audible. I found that the two tiny holes in the bottom speaker grate was blocked!!!!!! Working like a charm now. Only problem I have ever had.
