"...Many people opted for the Nexus 5X knowing about its flaws, but purchased a Device Protection plan for $5/month to cover themselves if the phone did fail. Unfortunately, the failures were extremely common, but because Project Fi was running out of refurbished 5X replacement devices, owners were instead being offered just $100 in Google Store credit or $53 in the form of a check. For a phone that originally retailed for $350, that was unacceptable. It may have taken a couple of weeks, but Google is finally doing the right thing. Hopefully, not too many people accepted either of those original forms of "compensation."
