Possible Solutions For Nexus 6 Not Charging Or Slow Charging

> If you find that your phone is charging but very slowly, then disable the unwanted apps. When you are done using an application, press the back button two times instead pressing the home button. It will close the app from the background. If you press home button, the app keeps running at the background and drains more battery power.

> When your Nexus 6 is charging, do not play games like 3D as they require more processing power. So, the charging rate becomes lower than discharging rate.

If you find your Nexus 6 is not charging at all, then you need to check few things:

> First check if the charging cable is working fine, so try with another cable.

> Check the charging pin of your phone. Stored dust in the pin may cause Nexus 6 Not Charging Or Slow Charging problem. So take a pin and clean carefully if any dust is there.

> If the phone is charging through plug point, try it with your Laptop or vice versa.

> Any rough app may also be the reason behind this issue. So boot your phone into safe mode and see if it is charging. If yes, then try to locate the problematic app and delete it or perform a factory reset and then selectively reinstall the apps.
