Google & Huawei Agree to Pay Damages to its Nexus 6P Users


If approved, all those who bought the Nexus 6P in the United States from September 25 onwards stands the chance of getting paid up to a max of $400. 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.

This is yet another class action lawsuit on the Android-related devices. Now, the two companies have preliminary agreed to pay Nexus 6P users. There's one more step for this lawsuit to go through, though. 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). Pending court approval, the companies would be liable to a $9.75 million settlement for the class action that began in April 2017, which may result in payments of up to $400 for participating plaintiffs. The users who suffered from this issue in a class-action lawsuit, according to reports.

We want to make it clear that Huawei and Google are the ones who proposed the settlement.

KitGuru Says: If the success of both the Pixel range and Huawei's P and Mate series of smartphones isn't enough to drive home the unlikeliness of these two working together again, then these issues sure drive the point home. 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 lawsuit's documents also state that users who have purchased this device on or after September 25, 2015 will be able to get $400 on a faulty device. However, they will need proper documentation for the bug, those who can not provide it will only get $75.

As you would expect, Huawei and Google are asking that all affected Nexus 6P users to present a detailed documentation of the issues.

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.
