Google May Be Sued over Nexus 6P Early Shutdown and Bootloop Issues

Attorneys are going after Google and Huawei for turning a blind eye to Nexus 6P owners with devices that are stuck in a loop of reboots or shutting down even with plenty of battery life left. Google appears to be honoring most if not all RMAs, but I guess the class-action suit is still justified for the 6P technically being a broken product. Hopefully, these issues do not rear their head on the premium Pixel line.

We reported late last year that certain Huawei Nexus 6Ps were suffering from the early shutdown problem, causing them to die with as much as 60% battery still indicated. Now, law firm Chimicles & Tikellis LLP is investigating the possibility of bringing a class action lawsuit against Google on behalf of customers who have faced this issue. Also included in any potential suit would be the same bootloop issue that has also affected owners of the LG Nexus 5X. The problems have mostly been reported by users running Android 7.0 Nougat, but there are also claims that backpedaling to Marshmallow 6.0 on the same devices doesn't fix anything.
