Google Pixel 7 & 7 Pro devices randomly rebooting while charging for some
Google Pixel 7 and 7 Pro are the company’s flagship series of phones that come with a variety of improvements when it comes to 5G connectivity, fast charging, and water and dust resistance.
While the smartphones have received positive reviews from customers, they still may face some bugs and issues that negatively affect their experience.
For instance, we previously covered an issue where Pixel 7 and 7 Pro devices were not charging even when connected to a charger.
Google Pixel 7 and 7 Pro rebooting randomly
And now it appears that some Google Pixel 7 and 7 Pro users are facing issues with their devices randomly rebooting while charging. This is frustrating as it interrupts users’ tasks and hinders their experience.
Does anyone else’s phone keep restarting randomly when charging?
Anyone else having issues with Pixel 7 Pro turning off when plugged in? The first time it happened I thought I might have accidentally held down the power button while plugging it in, but it keeps happening.
According to reports, it appears that the issue affects users with both wired and wireless chargers.
However, for one Pixel user, the issue popped up only after they purchased and started using an official Google phone case.
It seems that the reboot issue is not limited to Google Pixel 7 and 7 Pro and affects other models in the Pixel lineup as well.
This is fairly common. Happened to me a lot on my 6 pro. Finally fixed by resetting and NOT restoring any back ups. My 7 pro has restarted once overnight while charging in the month I’ve owned it. My girlfriend’s 6 pro has done this and all 3 6 pros I had did it. It’s likely software but I’d get a replacement if you can
Google Pixel 7 hard crashing
Apart from Google Pixel 7 and 7 Pro rebooting, there are also reports of the devices facing hard crashing-related problems.
Most experience such hard crashing issues when navigating through applications while the phone is being charged.
It is imperative to note that the problem is not limited to the official chargers as it occurs even when charging from a car, laptop, or other USB devices.
My Pixel 7 keeps randomly restarting. Most of the time it does it right after I plug the device into a charger (i.e. Car, Laptop, Google charger and block, etc.). Has anyone else been having this issue?
Unfortunately, the developers are yet to acknowledge the problem. We really hope the problem gets resolved as soon as possible. Meanwhile, we will keep an eye on this story and update it with noteworthy developments.
