Google will pay owners of faulty Pixel phones

Google to pay faulty Pixel owners $500 after class-action Google will pay owners of faulty original Pixel phones up to $500

Some early users of Google's Pixel devices have reported mics issues.

Google, the company that is responsible for Android, is registered in the United States which means that Huawei's blacklisting also affects it. Google is anticipated to unveil the smartphone in October.

"While one could always debate about the Pixel 3 price upgrade as compared to its Pixel 2 series ($150 more) vis-a-vis spec upgrade, it was the channel strategy which constrained the growth of Pixel 3", Karn Chauhan, Research Analyst at Counterpoint Research, told IANS. The main online retailer has started offering the Pixel 3A and 3A XL at their respective $399 and $479 price tags.

Google executive Brian Rakowski said the cheaper devices are created to fill in for people left behind by the rising price of many high-end phones.

Despite the lack of Pixel sales, Google pointed out that it was pleased with the "momentum for Assistant-enabled home devices, particularly the Home Hub and Mini devices".

Irving will become free agent
National Basketball Association rules state that teams may not acquire more than one player signed to such a deal at one time. Irving also played in nine playoff games as the Celtics were eliminated in the second round by the Milwaukee Bucks.

It takes a while for these lawsuits to properly end, this one initiated by Google Pixel buyers didn't' actually reach a conclusion. Despite the design, it's expected to keep stereo speakers on the front, just like in the Pixel 2 and Pixel 3.

The launch of the 3a line comes days after Alphabet Chief Financial Officer Ruth Porat told Wall Street analysts that the premium Pixel handsets didn't sell well in the first quarter. The battery supports fast charging and can be charged using a USB Type-C port.

It doesn't appear that Amazon is selling the regular Pixel 3 and 3 XL as of now, be that as it may.

The Pixel 3a at $399 and the 3a XL at $479 shoot many birds with one stone even without the $100 card deal that Google is running in partnership with retailers like Best Buy or B&H. However, more recent reports suggest T-Mobile will also carry them. We obliged with a quick comparison, and our conclusion was simple - the new Pixel did have a camera and software update edge, but when it to other factors, especially hardware (RAM, storage, processor, display, pretty much the works), the OnePlus 6T pretty much bossed it. But with Google's smartphone business now struggling, a boost from the mid-range segment could be all it needs to get back on track.
