Having the same issue on my Pixel 5a. Phone randomly shuts down, in the following scenarios:
- Battery saver on or off
- Bluetooth on or off
- While actively using it or not using it, including e.g. listening to a podcast
- Have NOT tried disabling GPS or WiFi
Actively using the phone seems to increase the frequency of shutdowns, but it will also shutdown after sitting for some time. It's almost certainly going to be dead when I wake up in the morning. It shuts down maybe a dozen times per day, since the last update.
Pixel 5a 5G
- Android version:
- Release channel:
- Build number:
37% free space (>80 GB)
- Adaptive brightness:
On, with dark mode and Night Light enabled
- Multiple users:
The radio also doesn't seem to connect after restarting, often. So the time is set to 2:40a (NTP/clock doesn't update from the network, texts/calls aren't sent/received). I don't see any pattern in this behavior, though the radio generally has been unreliable for the past few versions, I think. Toggling mobile data and WiFi on and off, as well as toggling airplane mode, don't seem to have any effect.
I've enabled native code debugging, but I'm not sure how to get at that.
Is there any update on this issue -- ideally an ETA on a fix or a method to revert to an older, working OS version? The phone is completely unreliable and unusable, and this seems to be affecting multiple 5a users.
