The last thing that we want to mention is that the only Nexus 6P users who can benefit from this settlement are those who live in the US. In fact, Nexus 6P users have been reporting that their smartphones are going into a bootloop mode which renders the devices useless and neither Google nor Huawei wanted to take responsibility for that.
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. The battery drain issue refers to the device spontaneously shutting down.
The $9.75 million settlement is still pending approval by the U.S. District Court of the Northern District of California.More news: Disney+ Confirms Vision and Scarlet Witch, What If?, And More Marvel Shows
After Google partnered with Huawei to launch the Nexus 6P in 2015, many users of the phone experienced bootloop issues. However, note that there's no website yet for you to file a claim - the courts need to approve everything first, which should happen in the next month or so. The users who suffered from this issue in a class-action lawsuit, according to reports.
Documents state that those that purchased the Nexus 6P after September 25, 2015 are eligible for up to $400 for the faulty device.
Claimants will have to submit proper documentations, and the amount they'll get from Google and Huawei will depend on how much proof they can provide.More news: Instagram Declares to Disapprove Inappropriate Content to Safeguard the App
Before Google started "making" Pixel phones in 2016 (with discreet help from actual manufacturers like HTC), there was the Nexus program, under which the search giant offered companies like Huawei or LG way more exposure for producing powerful but affordable devices running stock Android software.
So, if you did own a faulty Nexus 6P and maybe still have all the necessary documentation to prove it was buggy, keep your eyes on the lawsuit. Furthermore, since the proposed settlement is yet to receive approval from the court, the drafted process may get tweaked at the time of its public announcement.
Unfortunately, because the terms of the settlement include a fixed amount of money, the number of people who will submit a valid claim is the deciding factor of the exact compensation owed to each individual user.More news: Why Ivanka and Melania Trump Get Along, According to Ivanka's Mom
