Google and Huawei agree to pay owners of faulty Nexus 6P devices up to $400

Google and Huawei have preliminarily agreed to settle a class action lawsuit by Nexus 6P users who say their devices experienced a reboot problem that caused phones to shut down randomly, regardless of battery level. Pending court approval, the companies would be responsible for a $ 9.75 million settlement of the class action lawsuit that began in April 2017, which could result in payments of up to $ 400 for participating plaintiffs.

The lawsuit alleged that Google, which contracted the design and manufacture of its first Android smartphones with third-party companies, and Huawei, one of the chosen companies, failed to comply with the device's guarantee as the companies were aware of the problem, but it does not respond to the error. The plaintiffs also said that the companies continued to sell the defective devices without acknowledging the problem. If the court approves the agreement at the next hearing on May 9, users of Nexus 6P in the US. UU Who purchased the device on or after September 25, 2015 would be eligible to claim reimbursement.

The proposal currently states that those who are eligible for the agreement could receive a payment of up to $ 400 for their defective device, while those who received a Pixel XL in a previous guarantee exchange program would only be eligible for a maximum $ 10. Those who send the correct documentation for the error will receive the largest amount of settlement money, while those who do not have it may be eligible up to $ 75. For all the details on how to file a claim, see the document Notice of long form as presented, which explains the process that will take effect after the approval of the court.

This is just one of the few class action lawsuits related to Android that have resulted in manufacturers paying owners of defective devices. The most recent and high profile of those belonged to LG, who paid $ 425 per owner, or $ 700 in the form of reimbursement, after resolving a similar class action lawsuit with respect to boot issues with the G4, V10, V20, Nexus 5X, and G5 in January 2018.
