Like many of you I eagerly awaited the release of the nexus 6p.. unfortunately it has been crashing a lot lately (a problem many seem to have). The first thing I tried was running a factory reset, which solved the problem temporarily.. but a couple of weeks later the problem returned (i noticed it returned after a certain mass update i made to several apps).. so i'm quite certain it's a software problem rather than a hardware defect.
Any advice? I've also installed aLogcat but i'm not quite sure how to use that.. i've seen some posts talking about instructing it to dump the output on an SDCard.. but i don't see that it has a command line interface..
i got to install android 6.0.1.. everything worked perfect for several days.. however as soon as i started taking pictures.. the old crashes came back.. which reminded me that the exact same thing happened when i first got the phone.. so i narrowed down the problem to the camera app.
I've asked the same question on the google nexus forum. Some helpful tips bit still no cigar.. i'll post the answer here if i actually solve it.
