Hi hivemind. 


I'd like some general feedback please. 


Sometime ago I purchased a Nexus 6P brand new.  Like many, many others my Nexus 6P started suffering battery issues and powering off with 40-50% of battery remaining. 


Many people had their Nexus 6P repaired under warranty. Unfortunately at that time I was going through a really, really hard time and I simply didn't have the energy to chase getting mine repaired. It was on my todo list but I didn't get to it until after my warranty expired.  At the time the phone would occasionally power down with 20% battery left.  Now it's unsafe to assume it will keep going at 45% so I've effectively lost half of my battery life. 


It's clearly the same fault. I have a large number of screenshots showing the battery level dropping to 0% from 30-55%.  I'm super, super annoyed by the continual power off when I'm in the middle of calls etc. 


I purchased this from 2Degrees. 


So... just wondering if anyone has made this sort of repair/replacement claim ('expected lifetime of a product') under the CGA after a warranty has expired? Were you successful? How did you go about it? Any tips / suggestions?


Thanks in advance,

I've had the exact same issue, which I only diagnosed after the 2 year warranty from PBtech had expired. My credit card has insurance that should cover it for another year, so I may try to get a repair / replacement battery using that.
