Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P Fuel Controversial Lawsuit Against Huawei and LG
Google’s Nexus smartphone offerings are considered as being some of the best Android devices ever made. However, this is certainly not the case with Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P. The aforementioned smartphones are affected by the dreaded bootloop mode which as many might know, it causes smartphones to malfunction and which makes them practically useless. In fact, an US based law firm has already started a class-action suit against LG, and now Huawei is next in line.
The South Korean tech giant teamed up with Google in 2015 and created Nexus 5X. The smartphone has generate huge amounts of profits for both tech companies, but now its sales percentages started dropping ever since the news of Nexus 5X’s bootloop mode issue became public. The worst thing about it though is the fact that LG is not offering any free repairs or replacements. This is what forced the law firm to start a class-action suit. We should also mention that LG V20 and LG G5 are also included in the lawsuit since both of them are affected by the same bootloop malfunction.
After Google’s partnership with LG ended, the Android parent started collaborating with Huawei. The Chinese manufacturer helped Google create Nexus 6P which became known as being Google’s flagship smartphone. However, this doesn’t mean that Nexus 6P is flawless. Sadly, the smartphone is affected by the same annoying bootloop mode. Numerous reports are showing that the same US based firm is looking into suing Huawei for also not offering free repairs or replacements for malfunctioning smartphones.
What’s Causing Smartphones to Bootloop?
This whole fiasco was started because neither Google nor LG or Huawei took responsibility for this issue. At first, many believed that Google’s Android 7.0 Nougat operating system caused smartphones to bootloop but this was proven to be false. This leaves the two foreign smartphone manufacturers and their hardware parts to blame. Let’s just hope that both LG and Huawei decide to take matters into their own hands and repair malfunctioning smartphones in order to avoid the class-action lawsuit.
