Pixel 4xl stuck on 50% ,Switches off randomly,Has a battery symbol with a ?
7
This is my second pixel 4 xl, first one was dead straight out of the box. This one I've had since Nov 2019 working fine untill recently. Battery stuck on 50% won't change even when charge or discharge. Today it randomly crashed/shutdown, would turn back on untill I plugged it into a charger. Then had a battery symbol with a ?. Which was the same symbol the first pixel 4xl had. The phone eventually turned on, I've tried turning off location, rebooting still having issues

@ Trent Barton- The same exact thing started happening to mine yesterday. Did the same troubleshooting as you. Rebooted phone, tried different chargers, etc. No luck on the battery going back to "normal". Did you ever find a fix for yours?

Same issue here, sometimes a reboot fixes it, peeing the battery completely die and charging it has fixed it twice for myself.

Both my wife and I have the phone and she doesn't have the issue.

Same issue here, it seems it only shuts down when I put it in my pocket, reboots with %50 battery most times but sometimes it shows a random figure. Won't wireless charge most times and when it does it shows a ?in battery symbol. 

I was a fan previously of pixel phones and Google support but not any more, both have become very unhelpful.

I haven't had it crash/shutdown since I posted, but my phone is still stuck on 50%. charging with pixel stand or just cable doesn't make a difference. Now since I don't know where the battery is through out the day, I just charge it constantly. I'm hoping it a software issue, and not hardware, but I'm not holding my breath. I was a big fan of the 3xl, loved stock android. But since getting a dead 4xl out of the box, and now this one having issues I'm rethinking buying a Google phone again

Purchased my Pixel in December of 2019.  On 9/22/21 I took my phone to our local UBreakIFix, they don't repair it while you wait so drop off, go home, pick up, go home.  2-1/2 hours out of my life, but they did replace the battery under warranty and it did work........for 2 weeks.  I took it back to UBIF on 10/9/21 another 2-1/2 hours and another new battery.  Today is 10/24/21 and UBIF is closed, but the same issue again.  Chatted with Google support and unfortunately running around or mailing the device in for repair (without the device for 2 weeks then) are the only options.  Basically made it seem like I should be grateful that Google is even offering an extended warranty on their obviously widely known "battery" issue. Truly makes me doubt it is the battery!
