Google and Huawei settle over to pay for Nexus

14 April 2019

To make matters even worse, there is also a battery drain issue that makes it impossible for people to use their Nexus 6P on a daily basis. 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.

Nexus 6P devices were left unusable following an update in April 2017, two years after the device originally released, as the software entered a state of unending reboots until the battery died.

This is yet another class action lawsuit on the Android-related devices. Besides, the Nexus 6P was Google's smartphone, which was manufactured by Huawei. Others dealt with accelerated battery drain, forcing the device to power down at random times, even if it had been recently fully charged.

Although both Google and Huawei claim this isn't true, the companies have agreed to settle the case for $9.75 million.

With Huawei blaming Google's Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system and the Search giant returning the favour, nothing was done to aid those affected by the bugs.

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. Here's how you can claim. According to the settlement brief, plaintiffs alleged that the Google Nexus 6P had a defect that caused two different issues. To get the reimbursement at its fullest, you have to submit a claim with the proper documentation. For instance, those who agreed to exchange their faulty Nexus 6P for a new Pixel XL as per the exchange program in effect back then would be eligible for a payout of just $10.

As you would expect, Huawei and Google are asking that all affected Nexus 6P users to present a detailed documentation of the issues.

The settlement is all depending on the court for the approval, but it seems that it's going to happen anytime soon. You can browse the pending settlement form that explains all your legal rights and options here.
