Some Nexus 6P owners complained of frequent bootloops, whereupon the phone would suddenly shut down and attempt to restart, but remain stuck at the boot screen and fail to properly launch for minutes at a time.

The settlement could be approved at the next court hearing on May 9th and Nexus 6P owners who purchased the device after September 25th, 2015.

"Google contracted Huawei to manufacture Nexus 6P with 5.7" display and 3RG RAM and a Snapdragon 810 SoC with 12MP rear and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner.

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. There's one more step for this lawsuit to go through, though.

Apple isn't the only company whose smartphones have battery-related performance issues. Provided the court approves the settlement on 9 May, anyone in the United States bought the Nexus 6P from 25 September 2016 onward will be eligible for as much as $400 if they provide documentation, while those without will receive up to $75.

Some Nexus 6P owners that experienced bootlooping issues have filed a class action suit against Google and Huawei.

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.

The lawsuit claimed that Google has breached the device warranty as the company and manufacturers were aware of the issue.

For the unaware, battery defects within 6P devices caused the phones to randomly shut down or even lock users into unending boot loops. Here's how you can claim.

Those who already received a Pixel XL as part of a warranty exchange will only qualify for a maximum of $10 under the proposed settlement. Back in 2017, folks at XDA Developers found out an official fix to get rid of the bootloop problem on Nexus 6P units as well. However, they will need proper documentation for the bug, those who can not provide it will only get $75.
