Several Google Pixel 3a users found themselves at the receiving end of a software issue over the last couple weeks. 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.

Undoubtedly Google will be all over this, but as yet they've not officially responded or even acknowledged the issue.
Early adopters of Google's new affordable Pixel phones have started reporting random shut downs when their phones are left idle. But some obvious choices-a specific third-party app, for example-have not panned out. When a random shut down occurs, the phone won't simply turn on by pressing the power button. Instead, you'll have to hold down the power button for 30 seconds in order to make the phone boot back up.
Google has yet to publicly acknowledge the shutdown problem, so it's unknown whether it plans to issue a firmware update to resolve it.
