Despite Google fixing the Bluetooth bug plaguing the Pixel and Pixel XL, some users are still experiencing issues


Ever since Google released the February Android security build for the Pixel and Pixel XL, owners have been experiencing Bluetooth issues left and right. A little over a month ago, Google acknowledged the problem and stated that a solution is being worked on. It was four days ago that the awaited fix came, and it didn't even require Pixel owners to download a system update, since it was a "server-side" solution, as Google puts it.

However, judging by the myriad of Pixel and Pixel XL owners who are complaining on Google's product forums from still experiencing drops in Bluetooth connectivity, it seems that the annoying bug hasn't been put to rest for good

Apparently, the nature of issue has slightly changed for some users, one stating that "while my Bluetooth may not disable automatically, it still disconnects from my Garmin smartwatch and stays disconnected." Others are also complaining that their connection simply drops, without Bluetooth itself being disabled, whereas before the feature switched off on its own and seemingly at random.

Google has not yet issued an official statement regarding the ongoing Bluetooth connectivity issues affecting its in-house developed phones. More information is bound to come in the coming days and we will keep you updated.

This issue has received a lot of ink (virtual) but no news story about the unlocked S7 and S7 Edge still not being upgraded to Nougat and no security update since December. Why?

You could have run Nougat on your unlocked S7/Edge since like 3 months ago, and beta since like 5 months ago, without even rooting or tripping the Knox flag. I am doing this with my unlocked S7 Edge, and it works great. You just have to download the official image and flash it to your phone.

I have a much higher ratio of return for overheating , cracked by itself screen , Camera lence cracked , phone wont turn on because something burn on the mother board on S7 edge and to a lesser extend on S7. 10 samsung sold. 3 return lol. 100 pixel sold. 0 return. Easy no? But its okay live in lala land :)
