Some users said that the battery of their Google Pixel 7 or Pixel 6 unit needed a charge by the afternoon despite a top-up in the morning, yikes!
For Pixel phones, Google just released the June update. While the newest update adds new capabilities for Pixels, some users are reportedly experiencing battery depletion difficulties with their devices. These individuals complained about the issue on various sites, claiming that the June update may be to blame for their Pixel phones’ faster-than-usual battery loss.
According to 9to5Google, a Reddit post contains a number of user comments on the battery drain problem from Google Pixel customers. While some customers claimed that their Pixel 7 or Pixel 6 device’s battery needed a charge by the afternoon despite a morning top-up, other users claimed that their devices need numerous charges per day. The Pixel phones don’t have the quickest charging standard, thus it takes them a significant amount of time to recharge.
Not just the battery is draining faster than usual, but some Pixel units seem to be heating up for some users. This issue is mostly occurring in Pixel 7 and Pixel 6 devices, while the battery drain issue is affecting older Pixel models, as well. Google Pixel devices do not offer the best battery life for their price range, but the problem of battery drain is concerning considering it is affecting the latest models, too.
There are some users who have reported that their battery life has improved after the update though. However, the number of users who are experiencing battery drain is much larger than the number who are not. Additionally, a small number of users have reported that the June update has caused network issues.
Google has not yet acknowledged any of these issues, but users should not necessarily worry. A fix for all of these issues may be coming sooner than later. Pixel phones receive software updates every month, so if Google can fix these issues before the next software rollout schedule, the July update will most likely fix them. The next update for Pixel phones arrives on the first Monday of the month, so it is just a matter of a few days. However, it is also possible that the update schedule may be pushed back, as was the case with the June update.
