Google is rumoured to launch this year’s Pixel pretty soon and the Tech community is hyped to see what’s coming. But here’s something which is making the Nexus 6P owners very much happy… only the ones who bought from Google Stores.. Yeah, Sadly. So these buyers can actually get their Nexus 6P replaced by Pixel XL!
So, The Nexus 6P is one of those phones that had high initial quality, but it hasn’t withstood the test of time very well. This phone has been plagued by battery issues that cause it to randomly shut off. Those who bought their phones from the Google Store have reported success not only with getting the phone replaced, but replaced with a Pixel XL.
Well..There have been sporadic reports for months of 6P owners getting Pixels back from Google, but now it seems like a near certainty in some places. People swapping out a defective Nexus 6P in the US and Canada apparently have a very high chance of getting a Pixel. Some in the UK are still receiving refurbished Nexus 6Ps, and it sounds like everyone in Australia is still getting a 6P back. The exact nature of the upgrade seems to vary as well. Some are being offered 32GB Pixel XLs, while others get the 128GB variant. The upgraded 64GB 6P seems to afford a higher chance of the larger capacity. Woah, Perks of buying a phone from a Google store!
While the process sounds a little arbitrary (e.g. why do certain countries get the Pixel XL, and why does Canada only get 32 GB?), it’s good to see that Google is taking the necessary steps to provide support to frustrated users, most of whom went through more than three Nexus 6P replacement units in the past two years or so.
This year Google will launch the Google Pixel 3, and hope Pixel 2 problems will be fixed.
