Google Pixel 3a and 3a XL users are reporting random shutdowns

Google Pixel 3a Price Deal

The company's latest Pixel 3a and 3a XL handsets look to be following this trend: both devices have garnered positive reviews, but reports of issues are already surfacing. Once that's done, they can continue to use the phone until another random shut down.

One user also speculated whether the bug was WiFi-related since the problem only ever occurred when they were connected to their home network, but this case is too isolated to be confident that this is the issue. Instead, it has to be hard reset by holding the power button pressed for around 30 seconds. If you are experiencing random shutdowns on your Google Pixel 3a or Pixel 3a XL, we'd advise you to report the problem through "Support & tips" page in "Settings" on your phone.

One Redditor faced with the problem said, "I had two shutdowns yesterday, including overnight, causing me to miss my wake alarm". Google has yet to make an official comment on the matter.

Ukraine’s President Zelenskiy calls early elections in inaugural speech
Defence Minister Stepan Poltorak and the head of the SBU security service Vasyl Grytsak swiftly tendered their resignations. Flanked by four bodyguards, he was giving high-fives to some spectators and even stopped to take a selfie with one of them.

The affected phones in the settlement were manufactured prior to January 4, 2017.

Undoubtedly Google will be all over this, but as yet they've not officially responded or even acknowledged the issue.

The original complaint said hundreds of customers had "severe microphone issues".
