Has your Pixel 6 suffered from random device shutdowns?

Written by admin

Thanks to June’s Quarterly Feature Drop, the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro handsets were both able to get rid of many of the bugs that made the devices two of the buggiest new handsets in recent memory. Some of the Pixel 6 series devices lost cellular and Wi-Fi connectivity, while other issues focused on the under-display optical fingerprint sensor, which remains behind. And multiple updates were delayed preventing Pixel 6 series users from installing them.

New Pixel 6 series bug randomly shutting down Pixel 6 series phones while taking photos in airplane mode?

Time to buy the Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro

When airplane mode is turned on, the phone loses its phone capabilities, blocking all radio frequency transmission services. It shuts down all Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, cellular and data connections on your mobile device to prevent the handset from interfering with commercial aircraft. To enable airplane mode, go to SettingsNetwork & InternetEnable Airplane Mode

This is something that the user has done with older Pixel models that he has had and never had any issues with this before. But sure enough, with the Pixel 6 there is a problem. As the redditor says in his post, “but here comes the Pixel 6 of course; for no reason it turns off randomly while taking photos; luckily it’s rare but still annoying, it happens 1-2-3 times in a long time. day.

The settings that led to the shutdown include having the phone in airplane mode with lots of free storage space and long battery life. The temperature would be cold
-normal temps, cold, but not so much as shutting down the phone. The Pixel 5 had no problems at -5°c -10°c and most users were unable to duplicate the problem. One Pixel 6 Pro user said that he uses battery mode to take photos on his Pixel 6 Pro in areas where he knows there is no wireless service and that he has never had the same problem with the phone shutting down randomly.

Some believe the problem is related to colder temperatures and greater internal resistance for batteries at lower temperatures

Radian-Fi writes on Reddit to say this could be a problem in colder temperatures. He says, “I think it may have something to do with temperature and battery. The battery in the device in question may have too much internal resistance at lower temperatures…but that’s just speculation.” The internal resistance is the resistance to the current in the battery and cold weather increases the internal resistance.

Another Reddit user with the handle of keijikage notes that with the colder temperature and higher internal resistance, “It may look like you have a battery, but you don’t, because the phone hammers on the chipset while making it.” photos or recording video.” Another Reddit user at the “rignfool” handle noted that the same problem happened to him when he owned the Nexus 6 with its “SHITTY” battery.

So this is a new bug? Most Google Pixel 6 series users will not enable airplane mode on their phones to use the cameras for photos and videos. And while some other Reddit members did the same, none of them said they’ve experienced the random shutdown of their Pixel 6 series phones. So we wouldn’t exactly call it a bug. But if you encountered this problem while using the camera after enabling Airplane Mode on your Pixel 6 or Pixel 6 Pro, please let us know by sending us a comment via the comments section below.
