Install Android 8.1 to Improve Your Performance

If you're running into performance issues on Android 8.0, you should consider downloading the Android 8.1 update on your Nexus 6P as soon as possible. 

The Android 8.1 doesn't come with a long list of specific performance improvements, but there's a chance it will alleviate the problems you're seeing on Android 8.0.

New Android releases often fix problems that aren't listed on the official change log. In the past, Android updates have stabilized battery life, solved Bluetooth and GPS issues, fixed broken Wi-Fi, fixed random reboots, and killed off annoying user interface lag. 

We're hearing Android 8.1 fixed some of the Bluetooth issues Nexus users have been running into on older Android Oreo builds. We've also seen positive early feedback about battery life and overall speed from Nexus 6P users. 

There's no guarantee Android 8.1 will fix whatever it is you're dealing with on Android 8.0, be it a bug or an issue with your Nexus 6P's performance, but there's a chance which makes it a risk worth taking.
