Nexus 6P Owners Start Class-Action Lawsuit Against Google and Huawei
Google and Huawei are not having such a good time lately. The two companies have found themselves implicated in a class-action lawsuit because Nexus 6P’s hardware keeps on malfunctioning. The hardware issue is Huawei’s responsibility but on the other hand, Google’s software is not working as intended as well. Nexus 6P owners are complaining about a major issue which causes their smartphones to randomly shut down which means that the devices become practically useless.
The Nexus community is already well aware of the dreaded bootloop mode which affects Nexus 6P. Considering the fact that Nexus 6P has only been out for a year and that it used to hold the title of being Google’s flagship, this kind of issue is unacceptable. The smartphone was marketed as being a mid-budget device which offers a pure Android experience alongside impressive hardware performance. Sadly, this isn’t the case since Nexus 6P’s hardware causes it randomly shutdown.
The hardware issue that’s affecting Nexus 6P is related to the device’s battery. User reports are showing that even though the smartphone might have over 60 percent of battery charge, it still shuts down. Many believed that this issue is caused by Android 7.0 Nougat, but this doesn’t seem to be the case since the smartphone still keeps on malfunctioning even though it might be flashed back to Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
Google and Huawei Class-Action Lawsuit
The two tech giants are being sued by owners of affected Nexus 6P devices. The reason why Nexus 6P owners are taking these drastic measures is because neither Google nor Huawei is taking responsibility for this issue. In fact when Nexus 6P owners called Huawei support, the Chinese tech manufacturer blamed Google and didn’t want to repair the affected smartphones.
What’s interesting is that Google managed to prove that the bootloop mode is not being caused by its software. As previously mentioned, even though Nexus 6P’s operating system is downgraded the problem keeps on persisting. It all comes down to Huawei now. The Chinese tech manufacturer needs to step in and take responsibility and repair or replace the malfunctioning smartphones.
