Google and Huawei settle over to pay for Nexus

14 April 2019

If the court approves the settlement at the next hearing on May 9th, Nexus 6P users in the U.S. who purchased the device on or after September 25th, 2015 would be eligible to claim reimbursement. In fact, Nexus 6P users have been reporting that their smartphones are going into a bootloop mode which renders the devices useless and neither Google nor Huawei wanted to take responsibility for that.

Moreover, The class action settlement is based in the United States.

For the record, Google and Huawei are still denying the Nexus 6P was inherently defective, and those who accept the settlement are in effect waiving their rights to lodge any case against the two companies concerning these claims in the future.

According to the documents related to the lawsuit, many Huawei Nexus 6P users encountered a number of problems with their smartphones such as their devices would often stick in bootloops where it wouldn't boot and a factory reset wasn't an option either. Others dealt with accelerated battery drain, forcing the device to power down at random times, even if it had been recently fully charged.

Google and Huawei agree to compensate its Nexus 6P users following boot looping issue that caused the phones to shut down randomly. Here's how you can claim.

Documents state that those that purchased the Nexus 6P after September 25, 2015 are eligible for up to $400 for the faulty device.

The lawsuit alleges that owners of borked devices were "stonewalled" by Huawei, which blamed the Google software, and claims that both firms breached the Nexus 6P's warranty because they were aware of the issue and did nothing to fix it. The most recent and high-profile case belonged to LG, which end up paying $425 per owner, or $700 in the form of a rebate, after settling a similar class action suit regarding bootloop issues with the G4, V10, V20, Nexus 5X, and G5 back in January 2018.

The settlement is all depending on the court for the approval, but it seems that it's going to happen anytime soon. However, they will need proper documentation for the bug, those who can not provide it will only get $75. Ae you happy about this settlement?
