Nexus 6 Manufacturing Defect Cover Coming Off – Google & Motorola Are Ready To Replace The Faulty Ones:
A Nexus 6 user from Canada named “iouiu” posted on Reddit that the new Nexus 6 phone he requested from the Google Play Store in Canada, has the said defect, cover is unglued and is coming off. He actually posted,
“So I just picked up my delivery of a newly assembled Nexus 6 that I ordered from Play Store in Canada and this is how the phone came out of the box. The back seems to be peeling off from the sides and pressing the cover down does nothing as the back pops back into the same position as seen in the images. I think this is a manufacturing error with the glue becoming too weak in the Canadian winter while shipping.”
Fortunately Google Play Store is ready to replace each and every Nexus 6 exhibiting the mentioned flaw.
Another user Chris Cannon, from UK, had supplanted a deficient unit as a result of the same flaw however even the substitution phone’s back was peeling off. Motorola Support reacted that the client was by all account not the only one to face this issue and could get a substitution.
