Google Nexus 6P is a phone loved by many, not just because of its affordability, but also because it’s a Google phone.
We all know what goodies come with Google phones. First, they run smooth, pure Android versions and second, they get timely software updates well ahead of other phones running skinned versions of Android. One problem, though, with the last family of affordable Google phones that run on pure Android versions, namely the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X, is the bootloop issue.
Many users of these two phones have been experiencing bootloop issues where the phones simply go off even when the battery is still at a whopping 65%. This is strange and not normal at all, which is why the companies involved in making the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X – Huawei and LG – including Google, have a court case to answer.
While it has been a problem when it comes to dealing with RMAs at Google or even with Huawei themselves, it appears that things aren’t the same anymore. Apparently, a good number of Nexus 6P users are easily getting refunds for their bootlooped phones, which is actually leaving them surprised at how Google has gotten good at this.
Most of these Google Nexus 6P phones getting the refunds are no longer covered by Google’s warranty, which makes it even more interesting. Apparently, the tech giant notes that the 6P is out of stock, which could actually be the reason why they are so quick to process the refunds. Either way, this is better than the games the company used to play before. If you have a Nexus 6P phone suffering from this issue, well, it’s about time to get a refund.
Something worth noting, though, is that most refunds have been happening for the 64GB variant of the Google Nexus 6P. Whether this is a condition or just by coincidence is still unknown, but hopefully, every unit affected will be treated with equal measure.
