Google Settling OG Pixel Microphone Lawsuit

Google is settling it Pixel microphone lawsuit. Those of you that bought one of the original Pixel phones and had microphone issues can get up to $500 back from the search giant.

Back in 2017, some original Pixels and Pixel XLs started experiencing microphone failures — theorized to be due to a hairline crack in the mic's solder. Google RMA-ed these devices, but the problem persisted in some replacement phones too, and a class action lawsuit was filed the following year. We now have word that Google has agreed to settle this lawsuit for $7,250,000 pending final court approval.
