So, I just found out that Google and Huawei are currently facing a class-action lawsuit regarding their 2015 Nexus 6P phones. Many people have reported over the years about their phones having random shutdowns, battery draining issues, and constant boot loops. The two companies have finally made up their minds and are finally giving up $9.75 million for their consumers. As someone who has experienced this first hand, I’ll be someone to explain my reaction to this entire thing and you guys can see what it is like in 2019 with someone speaking first-hand.
My grandmother wasn’t the only person in my family that experienced these problems. My dad, in fact, had to deal with the minor battery drains. Nothing enough to get a new phone at the time, but he was annoyed with it. He now too has the Moto G6.
But, now that I have a defective unit, I’ll tell you that the only problems that I have now are the shutdowns. Together, we can break down the suspects for these problems today.
The BIG Problem
The problem specifically is undefined specifically. I reset this device often for various reasons, which makes some of the results vary. But, the main problem is that based on five charging sessions with the device and full drains, the battery is now estimated to only being able to hold and release above half of its original capacity. The app that I used for testing is called AccuBattery. This app is trusted by many, including myself, and the app is pretty accurate. The phone does typically shut down and not turn back on when it is approximately 40% charged. The fact that the device can’t even hold a 70% charge is very disappointing.
Why I’m REALLY Disappointed
You Still Can (kind of) Use It!
The official draft for the lawsuit form is embedded below. So, stay tuned on other sources such as Android Authority for more updates about this mess. Hopefully, you enjoyed this and this helped you, but we’ll keep you updated in the future.
