Nexus 6P Bootloop Issues Will Cost Google, Huawei $9.75M

Nexus 6P Bootloop Issues Will Cost Google, Huawei $9.75M

Lastly, the users who do not provide documentation but do attest to having boot loop or batter issues can get at least $10, which can be increased up to $75. If approved, all those who bought the Nexus 6P in the USA from September 25 onwards stands the chance of getting paid up to a max of $400. For the record, Google had third parties manufacture Nexus devices, one of which is Huawei. Luckily, it seems a class action lawsuit might solve this problem.

The companies agreed to pony up $9.75 million to pay out to Nexus 6P owners.

Owners of the Android 6.0 Marshmallow flagship also kicked off about an issue relating to battery drain, complaining that the 6P often overheated, causing the battery to plummet and the device to unexpectedly switch off. Similarly, users who faced the alleged battery drain issue and submit documentation of the issue are suggested to receive up to $150 (roughly Rs. 10,400).

Google and Huawei have clearly come a long way from 2015, so even assuming they could have successfully defended against the damning accusations in this case, there was no point in digging up the past.

Google and Huawei this week reached a preliminary agreement to settle the class-action lawsuit.

Back in April 2017, a group of pissed off Nexus 6P users launched a class-action lawsuit against the OEM duo over a "bootloop" issue plaguing the device, which occurred after installing an update that left the handset unusable and stuck in an eternal state of boot. 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. Anyhow, if you bought a Nexus 6P with any of these issues, watch out for a mail or letter that Huawei or Google could send in order to claim the settlement amount.

The settlement is still under approval from the court, with an answer set to be revealed on May 9, 2019. You can browse the pending settlement form that explains all your legal rights and options here.

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.
