Seems like makers of flagship Android devices can’t get it right these days. We recently reported on an ever-expanding class-action lawsuit targeting LG’s flagships: the G4, G5, V10, V20, and Nexus 5X. Those phones, according to the suit and thousands of online complaints by users, have a legendary bootloop issue caused by shoddy construction that bricks the phones or slows them to a crawl.
Now the Nexus 6P phablet, unveiled in September 2015 for pre-order, is also being accused in a class-action lawsuit of having a “Bootloop Defect.” According to the suit, the Nexus 6P devices “are defective because they are prone to enter an endless bootloop cycle which renders them unresponsive and unusable.” What’s more, the suit also alleges a “Battery Drain Defect,” which has also been the subject of repeated online criticism by unhappy Nexus 6P consumers.
“As the numerous complaints posted on product reviews, blogs and other consumer resources reveal, countless consumers have experienced this Defect,” according to the suit.
The lawsuit mocks one of the advertisements about the device that claimed: “Battery life keeps you going all day and into the night.”
