Sony Could Offer 50% Refund to Few Xperia Owners After Losing Lawsuit in the U.S



Sony has lost the class action lawsuit over the wrong promotions of the waterproof feature on their Xperia devices in the U.S. Instead of waiting for the final judgment, the company will be settling outside the court by offering 50% refund to owners of the affected devices.

All the affected devices which are now covered under warranty will get additional one year of extended warranty and the devices out of the warranty period will be receiving six months of extended warranty.
