Fortunately, Google seems to have already been working on the issue and is expected to release a software update soon.
In the recent days, a couple of issues have surfaced related to the working of Google's Pixel devices. The latest one being problems with LTE connectivity. The issue is mostly reported by users on LTE band 4 (FDD-LTE, 1700MHz).
If not in India, most of the users in North and South America rely a lot on LTE connectivity all the time. However, Android Police reported that users on T-Mobile denied any issue of this sort so it might be a network related issue. On the other hand, some users claimed that after manually registering their SIM card to another IMEI number, they managed to connect on the above-mentioned band. Another user claimed that after working fine with his Note 7, the LTE network dropped as soon as it was registered with his Pixel device.
Fortunately, Google seems to have already started working on the issue and is expected to release a software update soon. Contrary to this, some users reported that the search engine giant is swapping the device in the light of this being a hardware issue. Well, nothing is clear as of now. GSMArena points out that the issue might be related to Qualcomm's X12 compatibility.
Previously, Pixel devices were said to be unstable while connecting to car systems via Bluetooth. The device used to disconnect automatically and repeatedly after which users brought this issue to the Google forums. Also, Google was accused of false advertising the phone charge speed at 18W when in reality it Google Pixel could only charge up to at 15W.
