MattEast: Good excuse to upgrade, the second gen Pixel might be around by then

 

I hope. I am one of those who has upgraded to every new Nexus model but I decided not to go from my 6P to a Pixel (1st gen).

Just to add to the general chorus: I've been experiencing early shutdown issues around 25% but I finally had enough when it shutoff at 45%. I called Fonefix to confirm it's covered under warranty, then brought it into Fonefix Greenlane last Saturday afternoon. It's apparently ready for pickup now (Monday afternoon). I have to say that it was a pleasant experience!

I held off upgrading my Nexus 6 but recently PB Tech had a sale and were selling the Nexus 6P for $599 and I decided to get one.

 

I doubt I will ever get to Pixel as they are just crazy price.

 

I have never had any problems with Nexus and the 6P is working well. Only hassle was that being a year old it was still on Android 6 which as soon as I turned it on it wanted to upgrade to Android 7 then 7.01 then 7.1 then a couple of monthly updates. For some reason even though I back up my 6.o with Google backup I could not transfer apps and settings to 6P, so once the phone had finished OS upgrades I sat down and re-installed all my apps. 

 

All sweet now.

 Took the phone into 2degrees store. Was sent away and returned 3 days later with replaced main board. No bootloops so far. Impressed with the quick turnaround.

Pleased to hear it's a relatively painless process!

 

I've finally reached the tipping point, as my battery is giving up the ghost at around 35%, and the phone is noticeably more janky than previously.

 

Will take it to 2D in wellington and send it away for a mainboard and/or battery :D

Wow, glad I read this thread. In the last 3-4 weeks my 6P has been shutting down from as high as 45% battery. Was going to try and replace it myself but will do this now. I bought mine through the Geekzone offer with 2degrees so glad I didn't buy off the google store. Just got to bring myself to being phoneless for 5 days, eek.....

It only took FoneFix 1 business day, so you should survive!

 

HOWEVER... do turn it on when you get it back and check the auto-rotate function. I just discovered that my accelerometer is not working. Have tried starting in safe mode... no joy. Will be taking it back to Fonefix tomorrow.

I took mine to 2Degrees and they (hopefully) have sent it to Fonefix.

 

When I get it back I can lend a Galaxy SIII to other Christchurch Geekzoners in the same predicament.

 

I am surprised how well it goes with LineageOS 14.1 (Android 7.1.2)

I did another factory reset myself (as part of getting ready for Fonefix) and the accelerometer is working again. I'll be keeping a very close eye on it though, in case it plays up again just before the 2 year mark.

Just as a matter of interest did Fonefix itemise what they did to repair the phone?

No they did not. They just mentioned that they replaced the screen and the battery on the receipt, not exact part numbers.

I asked them if the battery was a different model and got this reply....

 

"We replaced the LCD assembly with battery and rear deco under warranty and it’s a genuine Huawei LCD and Battery."
