Huawei Nexus 6P came under scrutiny for its build quality. The reports came out as soon a bend test showed a video of the phone bending like Twizzler’s. However, this could not happen with the metal body so it turns out that the glass is not particularly strong enough. The pictures make it clear that the glass pretty much shattered on its own without much intervention.
As per reports, reddit users are reporting that their glass on the back of their Nexus 6P handset shattered pretty much on its own while the phone was sitting on its back, without them doing anything. The Nexus 4 also shattered in the same way last year because of the glass was unable to handle the sudden temperature change when kept on a cool counter during winters after being used for a while.
We can assume the glass back of the newly released Nexus 6P going through a similar situation. It is suggested that the metal around the glass or the glass itself are expanding in a way the manufacturer has not ever presumed.
This story goes with the back glass of this smartphone but if we look at the reviews some people have also complaint of their display glass cracking with one long crack going across the surface. Google is providing support for these devices and where it can’t the issue is being directed to Huawei, that also handles servicing.
