A lawsuit filed by some people over the faulty performance of the Google Pixel has been settled. The settlement obligates Google to pay $7.25 million in damages to customers. The money is divided into four tiers: $500 for users who returned defective units; $350 for users who paid the insurance deductible; and $20 for those who purchased the Pixel without any problems. However, there is a catch. Users must have a defective unit before they can get a refund.

In a recent article, the New York Times reported on a new class-action lawsuit filed against Google over its alleged defective smartphones. This is the second time in a few months that Google has found itself on the wrong side of a defective smartphone class-action lawsuit. In April, a similar lawsuit was filed against Nexus 6P owners, who claimed that their defective phones were worth $400 or more. Other lawsuits have targeted the Nexus 6P, which was relatively successful for Google. It introduced Night Sight and Lens improvements and refined the Duplex functionality.

A class-action lawsuit against Sonos
Sonos is claiming a patent infringement and major copyright infringement in a class-action lawsuit against Google, the company behind the popular Google Pixel smart speaker. Google has since responded by countersuing Sonos, claiming that its products infringe on five of its patents related to search and echo cancellation. The ITC’s preliminary decision remains on appeal, so the company has until December 13 to appeal the ruling.
According to a report from Sonos, the ruling covers several Google hardware products, including the Pixel phone, the Nest Hub, and the Chromecast dongle. The lawsuit claims that Sonos was able to come up with similar solutions in 2015, even though the two companies had worked together on that project. Thus, Google was liable for the damages suffered by Sonos users as a result of the patent infringement.
