The Nexus 6P has had polarizing effects on its users; while some of its users have fond memories about the smartphone, for others it turned out to be a nightmare. Google and Huawei have been sued twice regarding the issues with the Nexus 6P, and now, owners of those faulty smartphones are entitled to a chunk of cash.

To recall, Google and Huawei got involved in a lawsuit over boot loop issues on some of the Nexus 6P devices. While there are fewer chances of those devices is still used, the two companies have preliminary agreed to settle on the suit. Once approved, this agreement will require Google and Huawei to pay $9.75 million and would give payments of up to $400 to participating plaintiffs.

According to The Verge, this suit alleges Google and Huawei of breaching the warranty on the Nexus 6P because both the companies were aware of this issue but neither of them did anything to take care of the issues and continued to sell the device.

The settlement could be approved at the next court hearing on May 9th and Nexus 6P owners who purchased the device after September 25th, 2015.

Google did offer Pixel XL as a replacement for the faulty Nexus 6P smartphones. Those who took advantage of the offer are still eligible for refurbishment, but only for a measly $10 or so.

Claiming the cahs, however, is not going to be as simple as putting your name in. The filed form further explains that “Subject to adjustment depending on how many claims of various kinds were made, people who experienced alleged boot loop and submit documentation of the issue will receive up to $325, people who experienced alleged battery drain and submit documentation of the issue will receive up [to] $150, and people who experienced alleged issues on multiple Nexus 6P’s and submit documentation of the issues will receive up to $400.”

Lastly, the users who do not provide documentation but do attest to having boot loop or batter issues can get at least $10, which can be increased up to $75. Apparently, any remaining money from the settlement will be used to reimburse those who paid for insurance claims relating to these issues.
