    My Pixel XL has been losing time for lack of a better term. My wife's Pixel (nonXL) is perfectly fine. As of right now I'm 34 minutes behind hers which has the correct time. This happens regularly and is highly annoying. I generally wear a watch but wasn't at the pool today and was using my phone. Now we're half an hour behind on our dinner plans.

    Has anyone else experienced or know how to fix this problem?

    I'd check to make sure your time is set automatically from the carrier.

    I've seen this happen on laptops, and usually it means the battery is bad - but it's also usually linked to the battery not properly powering dormant functions while the laptop is off and it will get back to the right time within an hour of being powered back on / plugged in. Weird to see it happen on a phone.

    I've had time widgets not update and get behind a few times but never the time on the status bar. Were you checking the time on a widget?

    I'm guessing try a factory reset and see if that solves it. if it doesn't you can at least tell your carrier that it didn't resolve it and they might send you a replacement.

    A variation to the ideas suggested above is to set the time manually and see if it drifts compared to a known good time source. That would help determine if time can be accurately kept without getting time services from the carrier.

    I think you've got something running in the background that is consuming CPU cycles.

    Does your phone feel even slightly warm?

    If you force a reboot, does it show the correct time upon startup and then slowly drift away?

    Is it always slow? Is it *ever* fast?

    How is your battery life?

    Lastly, have you enabled Developer Options and, if so, which ones are turned on?
