What you need to know

  • Google may be slapped with a class-action lawsuit by a law firm for the Pixel 3’s battery drain and camera issues.
  • The law firm is currently investing whether the defects reported by Pixel 3 owners are hardware related.
  • Some Pixel 3 owners had been complaining about battery issues on Google’s support pages since April last year.

In February this year, Google started paying out cash settlements for the original Pixel’s class action lawsuit. Just two days after sending out settlement checks to Pixel and Pixel XL owners with defective microphones, the company began paying settlement checks to Nexus 6P owners with bootloop issues. It now looks like Google may soon have to deal with another class-action lawsuit due to the battery drain and camera issues plaguing some of its Pixel 3 series phones.

Law firm Chimicles Schwartz Kriner & Donaldson-Smith LLP (CSK&D) is investigating whether the various defects in Google’s Pixel 3 series phones are hardware related (via XDA Developers). Since April last year, some owners of Pixel 3 phones have been complaining about their devices shutting down randomly when the battery falls below 30%. In addition to the battery issues, several users have also complained about ‘shaking’ and ‘vibrating’ issues with the Pixel 3’s camera, while a few others say the camera app on their device crashes randomly.

If you own a Pixel 3 or Pixel 3 XL and have experienced any of the above battery drain or camera issues, you can fill out the form on the Chimicles Schwartz Kriner & Donaldson-Smith LLP (CSK&D) website and contact any of the attorneys for the case.
