I'm still on Marshmallow KRW, 6.0.1😫 I know it kind of defeats the object of having a Nexus/Pixel but there seem to have been problems after the Nougat update, battery dying, shutdowns, bootloops, overheating, Huawei blame the software, Google blame the hardware, but some are saying it's​ more likely to be related to the age of the device. Mine's just over a year old, but the handset was released in September 15, so some are over 18 months old now. I was going to upgrade last weekend but I couldn't​ get it to backup with Wugfresh's tool kit. I might have another go. If I had another spare, I'd enroll, but I need my phone to be working. I did almost enroll in the beta programme after the in car Bluetooth stopped working, which was blamed on an update, which was allegedly fixed by a beta, but it started working again, so I didn't bother. What about you?

My son has the 5X with 7.1.2, he ran the 7.1.2 beta with no problem whereas I had Bluetooth and wifi problems with my Pixel. so I reverted back to 7.1.1 and waited for the ota to 7.1.2 which there has been no problems.


So with having problems with the 7.1.2 beta I have some reluctance to enrolling for the android o beta


I do like the Pixel the XL is too big

Think I'll give it a miss http://androidandme.com/2017/05/news/android-o-beta-update-google/

I note that the Pixel XL is smaller than the 6P, I love the size of my 6P, took to it straightaway, but we're all different.

Well I finally managed to back my 6P up yesterday, so I could upgrade, and I'm now running 7.1.2 with the latest May security patch. No issues so far,  touch wood, car Bluetooth working OK. I intend to wipe it as my battery is draining faster than it used to and I usually find wiping can improve things. Would have done it yesterday but I didn't have the time. Still not brave enough to try Android O on my daily driver though.

Yeah I'm also not brave enough either.
