Nexus 6P Class Action Lawsuit Give Users $400

Notably, the bootloop and battery drain issues were reported by a large number of Nexus 6P users back in 2016. This in the United States who bought the device on or after September 25th, 2015.

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.

The class action settlement is based in the United States, so unfortunately only USA buyers will be eligible for the possibility of getting a rebate.

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. 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).

The $9.75 million settlement is still pending approval by the U.S. District Court of the Northern District of California.

As for the class action lawsuit itself, the plaintiffs comprising of Nexus 6P users claimed Google and Huawei to be fully aware of the bootlooping bug affecting the phone. Google and Huawei have not admitted fault. However, if you have received a Pixel XL in a prior warranty exchange program, you might only get up to $10. 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 still under approval from the court, with an answer set to be revealed on May 9, 2019.

That can jump to $45 if you "attest" to battery drain problems without submitting documentation to support your claim, while unsupported bootloop complaints will be compensated with anywhere between $20 and $75. By submitting both the proofs you can avail $400 settlement.

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