The Huawei built Nexus 6P was the final flagship in the Google Nexus program before the Nexus program was unceremoniously killed off for the Google Pixel.
Hardly a year old, the Nexus 6P is still a powerful phone in the market and a well-rated phone By the users which is capable of running on the latest Android version nougat. But with the time, Errors and bugs came out with the phone and the most terrible is the shutdown problem at Early battery percentage faced by the users. All the users may not be affected, but sometimes it could be very disturbing for some of the users with an older version.
In this instance, a bug has been affecting certain Nexus 6P smartphones causing the phone to shut down at early battery percentages. Users are reporting that their smartphones have been rebooting at percentages as low as 15% or as high as 60%. It is obvious why this is problematic – a phone shutting down at seemingly random, potentially inopportune times can put a damper one’s plans for the day. In our experience, we’ve seen my Nexus 6P randomly reboot at around the 15% mark, but I chalked it up to running a custom kernel with some of my configurations. But when I compared my experiences to that of what others on forums have been reporting, I believe that this bug may be affecting my own Nexus 6P as well.
Nexus 6P Shutting Down at Early Battery Percentages

Some users have been reporting this issue for quite some time, and it appears that the issue is more widespread than initially believed. The cause of this bug is unknown at this moment. Some users speculate that the issue is hardware related, while some blame the Android Nougat update for introducing the bug.
An open issue was created on the AOSP Issue Tracker last month which has since been starred by over 1200 users and has had dozens of comments corroborating the bug’s existence. All that’s left is to wait and see if Google can determine the cause of the bug, which can seriously hamper the use of one’s Nexus 6P.
Reasons of Early Battery Percentages of Nexus 6P
The battery degrades (in some devices – like Note 4 – just after 11-12 months), and then becomes INCREASINGLY uncapable of providing high current. Which results in: unexpected reboots, unexpected shutdowns, at random battery % starting first at 5-10%, then 15,30,50… finally holding maybe 2 hours standby charge.
When you launch a CPU-hungry app, which starts draining a battery faster, and the phone shuts down without warning.
