2015's Nexus 6P, for instance, was praised in our initial review for its premium build quality, silky smooth user experience, blazing fast performance, versatile camera, excellent sound, and speedy charging technology. If you are one of those who purchased a Nexus 6P on September 25, 2015, or at a later date, are eligible for a reimbursement.

The two defendants in the case - brand-owner Google and device manufacturer Huawei - formerly deny the allegations. The tech giants will reportedly have to pay $9.75 million (approximately Rs 67.39 crores). Besides, the Nexus 6P was Google's smartphone, which was manufactured by Huawei.

Apple isn't the only company whose smartphones have battery-related performance issues.

Pistons clinch final playoff spot in East
The Milwaukee Bucks will host Game 1 of a first-round playoff series with the Detroit Pistons on Sunday at Fiserv Forum at 6 p.m. In Philadelphia, Jonathon Simmons had 20 points to lead the 76ers over Chicago in the regular-season finale for both teams.

Back in April 2017, a group of pissed off Nexus 6P users launched a class-action lawsuit against the OEM duo over a "bootloop" issue plaguing the device, which occurred after installing an update that left the handset unusable and stuck in an eternal state of boot. Additionally, those who received a Pixel XL in a prior warranty exchange program would get up to $10. Other causes that affected users were plenty of battery issues where users found out their devices would shut down even with a fully charged battery and more. 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. This time around, though, as long as you can prove you were impacted by these issues (perhaps by providing documentation of email support requests), you could take home up to a whopping $400.

The settlement is all depending on the court for the approval, but it seems that it's going to happen anytime soon. Those who submit proper documentation for the bug will receive the most settlement money, while those without may be eligible for up to $75. These issues were so widespread that Google has now essentially given up the legal fight, with it and manufacturing partner Huawei jointly agreeing to settle the lawsuit by compensating affected users. Ae you happy about this settlement?
