Bootloop issues reported by many Nexus 6P users
A new thread on Reddit contains the posts of many Nexus 6P users who claim their smartphones freeze and then get into a never ending boot loop. While some say they have managed to boot into recovery mode, many haven't been able to repair their phones yet.
It might surprise some, but this isn't a new issue, as Google acknowledged a similar problem more than three months ago and said that it's a hardware problem.
The same problem was reported on Google's AOSP issue tracker a few days ago, along with a short description that explains how is it affecting the Nexus 6P. Basically, the phone boots up to Google's logo and remains stuck on it.
The bad news is clearing cache, factory resetting and side loading factory images will not fix the bootloop issues that many Nexus 6P users are experiencing.
It's also worth noting that the problem seems to have got worse after Google released Android 7.1.1 Nougat update to the Nexus 6P, so it remains unclear whether or not this is a software or hardware issue after all.
