Owners of faulty Nexus 6P phones could get up to $400

Google partnered with Huawei to create the Nexus 6P.                  Josh Miller  CNET

But later it was reported that users were facing bootloop, in which Nexus 6P was simply shutting down without any warning. If the court approves the settlement at the next hearing on May 9th, Nexus 6P users in the USA who purchased the device on or after September 25th, 2015 would be eligible to claim reimbursement.

Some of you might not remember the Nexus 6P - it came along in 2015 and the 5.7 inch device was worth $500 at the time.

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

The companies agreed to pony up $9.75 million to pay out to Nexus 6P owners. The max of $400 of compensation is applicable for those who experienced the bootlooping and other issues on several Nexus 6P devices.

Huawei and Google have agreed to a preliminary class-action settlement that could pay out anywhere from $10 to $400 to each afflicted Nexus 6P owners, depending on which of the alleged issues each owner faced, and whether or not the owners have documentation of the issues.

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. 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.

The report clarified that those users planning to claim reimbursement money will have to submit a proper document, otherwise, they will be eligible for up to $75. 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. Back in 2017, a lawsuit was filed against the company by law firm Chimicles & Tikellis.

The settlement is still under approval from the court, with an answer set to be revealed on May 9, 2019. Meanwhile, Nexus 6P owners who have exchanged their smartphones for a Pixel XL are eligible for only $10, which is the same amount for those who haven't ran into the aforementioned issues can get from the settlement.
