If you’re a Nexus 6 owner, you might want to take note. Several owners of the flagship Google device are apparently experiencing signal issues. They are reporting that no mobile data connection is available on their device and rebooting the phone only fixes the issue temporarily. This sure doesn’t look good.
For now, owners of the Nexus 6 that are affected by this issue are mainly from the US, although there is one owner from the United Kingdom experiencing the same problem as well. A quick check on the official Nexus 6 discussion thread on our forum shows that no owner in Malaysia has complained about the issue yet.
While this could indicate that the issue only affects the majority of Nexus 6 owners in the US and some part of the UK, nothing can really be confirmed until Google officially responds to the issue. Hopefully, this is merely a software issue rather than a hardware one – with the latter being much more troublesome to resolve.
This isn’t the first time there’s an issue with the Nexus 6. About four months back, some owners reported that their Nexus 6’s back cover was popping out – some of which were caused by an expanded battery. While this issue is swiftly resolved in the US with a quick replacement by Motorola, owners in Malaysia are out of luck when it comes to defective units.
As the Nexus 6 isn’t even officially launched here yet despite appearing in SIRIM’s database a few months ago, all units of the device sold in Malaysia are by unofficial distributors. More likely than not, there’s not much that these unofficial parties can do to help rectify any issue with the Nexus 6, especially if it’s a hardware problem. If you were thinking of purchasing one, practice extra caution.
