Battery life may be the best upgrade for the new Pixel 5, but some users have noticed a strange bug. Despite the extended use time, the battery indicator on some Pixel 5 units is still stuck at a certain percentage, but it will be fixed soon.
If you are ready to buy a Pixel 5, you may have noticed that the battery level indicator seems a bit unstable. Under normal circumstances, the Pixel 5 consumes slowly, but as our Kyle Bradshaw pointed out on Twitter last week, it took more than three hours for his device to change from 100% Is 99%. Obviously, this is very abnormal.
It seems that he is not alone, because the support thread on the Google forum has seen several users report the same issue in the past few days, although sometimes different percentages appear.
A Google product expert has confirmed that this is a known Pixel 5 bug, and a future “coming soon”
The team is aware of this issue and will soon roll out a fix in a future Android update. The battery is charging, but the indicator light may be stuck. If you restart your phone and plug it into the charger again, the battery power should quickly rise to the correct level.
