Users Complaining About Cracked Display And Shattered Back In Nexus 6P

After going through extreme bending tests, Nexus 6 faces another controversy.

The Nexus 6P has faced wrath of many bend, scratch and burn tests. It undergoes two bend tests so that it can be proven that the device is not strong and durable.

The metal was often compared to “tissue paper” by different users who performed the test. Now, it seems that the problem is not only with metal but the glass is also under the same condition.

Moreover, the glass even shatters without any improper handling. Many Reddit users left a thread which said that glass on the back of the handset is shattering while phone is just sitting on the back, without any improper use.

This condition is similar to that of the Nexus 4 back, which starts shattering in the same way.

The reason which was revealed by the management back then was that the glass was unable to tolerate sudden temperature change.

Like, when placed on a cool counter during winters after use, the glass shattered into pieces. Now, it feels that the new Nexus 6P is also facing the temperature conditions.

It seems that the glass or the metal around the glass is going through expansion in a way which was not expected during manufacturing.

Many different users have also complained that along with the glass of the back, the screen or the display glass is also cracking with a long crack.

The crack also spreads across the whole surface. For now, there are only some people who are complaining about this issue.

But, the device just went on sale so it is a big number. The news of such careless designing is disappointing to know when two big names like Huawei and Google are attached to a single phone.
