These are boot looping and significant battery drain. 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. It seems that the owners of the Nexus 6P are going to get justice because Google and Huawei have chose to settle the class-action by paying up to $400 to eligible Nexus 6P owners. Naturally, this turned into a class-action lawsuit against the two companies, alleging that both had breached warranty and therefore consumer rights. Those not only include the possibility of the court ordering the two companies to cough up more than 10 million bucks, but also the near certainty of continued exposure to bad publicity. If we talk about the previous case, LG had to pay $425 per user regarding the same class action issue on their premium devices.

Google and Huawei have preliminarily agreed to settle a class action lawsuit from Nexus 6P users who say their devices experienced a bootlooping issue that caused the phones to shut down randomly, regardless of the battery level.

Trump calls for expanding airwaves to 5G service
Starting on December 10th, carriers will be allowed to bid on "3,400MHz of Upper 37 GHz, 39GHz, and 47 GHz Bands". The next 5G spectrum auction, it said, will be "the largest airwaves auction ever held in the United States".

Google and Huawei have clearly come a long way from 2015, so even assuming they could have successfully defended against the damning accusations in this case, there was no point in digging up the past. Here's how you can claim. Users who received a Pixel XL against their Nexus 6P in a prior warranty exchange programme would be eligible to receive up to $10 (roughly Rs. 700), while the ones who experienced the alleged bootloop and submit documentation of the issue would get up to $325 (roughly Rs. 22,500). Moreover, those who submit proper documentation for the bug will receive the large settlement amount, while those without any documentation may be eligible for up to $75. 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.

The settlement is all depending on the court for the approval, but it seems that it's going to happen anytime soon.
