LG settled a class-action lawsuit with certain owners of its smartphones, promising them a rebate or reimbursement for every device they owned affected by the bootlooping issue.
Now, a letter shared with Android Authority makes it clear that LG is changing the deal last minute and only offering rebate/reimbursement for one device, and a warranty for any others.
Making matters worse, LG is only giving claimants one business day to agree to the new terms, or forfeit all claims.
At the end of January this year, LG settled a class-action lawsuit against the company related to several of its smartphones having bootloop issues, including the G4, V10, V20, Nexus 5X, and G5.
Those afflicted by the bootlooping had until February 12, 2018, to file a Proof of Claim which entitled them to either a $700 rebate towards a new LG device or $425 cash, for each device affected.
But now, an anonymous Android Authority reader has provided evidence that LG is backtracking on its promise, and now only offering to give a rebate/cash settlement for one LG device per claimant, and offering warranty service for any other devices.
