Google and Huawei settle over to pay for Nexus

Google, Huawei Agree to Pay Nexus 6P Owners Up to $400 for Faulty...

Meanwhile, a different problem impacting another batch of Nexus 6P units caused the battery life to decrease "noticeably" or the devices to suddenly shut off at the worst possible times. Luckily, it seems a class action lawsuit might solve this problem. It's taken brand-owner Google and manufacturer Huawei two years to come up with an agreement after pointing the finger in the opposite direction, but affected customers are finally going to receive compensation. The max of $400 of compensation is applicable for those who experienced the bootlooping and other issues on several Nexus 6P devices.

Apple isn't the only company whose smartphones have battery-related performance issues. The decision comes after court decision in which both firms would be responsible to pay $9.75 million settlement for damage, a class action that originated in April 2017, according to court decision each Nexus 6P users may get up to $400.

Google & Huawei are now in a final phase of the settlement against a class-action lawsuit filed against the two bigwigs against the affected Huawei Nexus 6P users where the owner could get reimbursements of up to $400 if won. That's merely a formality, though, which will be followed by the publication of a dedicated website where you'll be able to make a claim.

Claimants will have to submit proper documentations, and the amount they'll get from Google and Huawei will depend on how much proof they can provide.


The proposal now states that those who are eligible for the settlement could be paid up to $400 against the lawsuit, while those who received a Pixel XL in a prior warranty exchange program would only be eligible for up to $10.

Google did offer Pixel XL as a replacement for the faulty Nexus 6P smartphones.

The settlement is still under approval from the court, with an answer set to be revealed on May 9, 2019. This means if you're anywhere outside the United States but faced the bootloop or battery drain issue on your Nexus 6P, you wouldn't be able to receive any compensation.
