    It could have been a higher percentage. I didn't see what it was at, but when I plugged it in it showed 35%. Even trying to reboot it while still outside it would shut down right away. This is ridiculous. God forbid I be in an emergency in my car and it not be warm enough to get help.

    Yeah. If you're that cold sitting in your car in the middle of nowhere, chances are good that you'll need help pretty quick.

    What you're all describing is very similar to what happens to my Droid Turbo when I use a wireless charger too often. The Battery calibration gets out of whack. So even though the device appears to shutdown prematurely based on the reported battery %, its really an innaccurate number that's being reported.

    While you make a valid point, I would bet that the majority of these Nexus and Pixel phones, none of which come with built-in wireless charging, are being charged with cables.

    I can see how wireless charging could cause similar issues though. :)

    Just happened again, same situation, battery was about 40% this time and wouldn't boot up until the phone warmed up again.

    Great, so I accidentally installed the December security patch the other day not realizing it, till it was too late to abort. So today I stop at work to pick up some checks, BS for a few minutes and head out. Grab my phone to make a call and it is in battery saving mode then BAM shuts down. Plug it in turn it back on in about two minutes and voila 40% battery.

    So where is the January security patch? I'm assuming Verizon is holding it up but I don't know.
