Recently, the Google/Huawei Nexus 6P was the subject of a class action lawsuit in which the claimants experienced a disproportional amount of battery drain, bootloops or both. This case was settled, and the beneficiaries have now been informed that they will receive their respective compensation. It should be issued from now until February 29, 2020.

The story of the last true Nexus phablet ended in some acrimony as its manufacturing partners, Google and Huawei, were pinged in a class-action lawsuit over dysfunctional devices. This case was settled in 2019 with the agreement that about US$9.75 million was to be paid to the claimants.

Given the volume of these subjects, this breaks down to a maximum of $400 per individual, depending on the severity and nature of their 6P's problem. This group has reportedly been sent a notification that these amounts are finally to be paid out. This, according to a relevant Reddit thread, should have taken effect from Jnauary 12, 2020.

This process is to run for 40 days from that date, or until the end of February 2020. However, none of the posters to this thread, many of whom assert that they are claimants to the settlement in question, have reported the receipt of their payout yet. It should arrive in the form of a check or digital transaction, depending on the preference of the individual beneficiary.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
