If you own a Google Pixel, you may receive up to $500

Google has agreed to a settlement in a class-action lawsuit brought by owners of its original Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones.

The affected phones were manufactured prior to January 4, 2017, with the owners suing Google in February 2018 after claiming they were intentionally sold faulty phones.

The 64GB SIM-Free Google Pixel 3a in Just Black will only be available at that ridiculous price for 50 people only, and you have until May 20 at 11.59pm to throw your name into the hat.

The highest level, which will see claimants receive up to $500, is for those who returned a defective Pixel phone only to receive a handset with the same issues.

Tesla says solar factory will now make EV chargers and other products
California state data shows 21 Solar Roof systems were connected by the state's three investor-owned utilities as of February 28. He had been the chairman of SolarCity and is a cousin of the cofounders, Peter and Lyndon Rive, both of whom have since left.


The search-engine giant first admitted that there was an issue with some of the phones back in March 2017.

Owners with the original defective device would get up to $350, whereas users who fixed the problem through insurance can get their amount repaid. While at that time, the company said that it would reinforce the connection, less than a year later it was hit by a lawsuit where the owners were angry that Google continued selling defected phones despite knowing the issues.

A final decision will be made by the courts on 5 June, and if the deal is approved Google will start splashing the cash.

Google was previously involved in a similar lawsuit wherein the company agreed to pay $9.75 million to Nexus 6P owners due to a bug that caused shutdowns and boot loops. "Based on temperature changes or the way you hold the phone, the connection may be temporarily restored and the problems may go away".
