    I'm still using my Pixel 1.

    I wasn't even aware that it had a microphone issue. Mine has been working perfectly since launch.

    I guess I'm still entitled to $20 from Google though for some reason.

    The article links to the same law firm attached to the Nexus 6P settlement.

    The reality is you won't see a dime from that settlement until 2020.

    I had a 6P with the issue, but sold it off so long ago. I could have used that 5 dollars they'll probably pay me

    Mine had the issue. Completely unusable. Reared it's ugly head after warranty expired. I traded it in for $140 toward my Pixel 3 since it turned on and worked fine other than the mic. I hope I can get something out of this.
