In what came as an embarrassment, many users of Google Nexus 6 have complained of a defect in the device, and Motorola that build the flagship device has confirmed it and suggested replacement.
The Nexus 6 comes with a non-removable hard plastic back but many users have taken to social media, including Facebook, Twitter and Google+, to express their dissatisfaction over its back cover coming off.
The defect could be either due to expanding batteries or with the glue used by Motorola but precaution need to be taken as reports of battery explosion are not new. However, the Nexus 6 users need not panic, as Motorola has offered replacement of defective devices.
A Twitter user named Chris Cannon wrote, "@MotorolaSupport my nexus 6's back cover is coming away from the body.. Already happened once and had a replacement. What's going on??" to which Motorola Support replied: "@ChrisCannon396 We're seeing a few -- bad luck to get two! Do you need help getting this one replaced?"
"@ChrisCannon396 Please contact our Customer Care team and let them know you need it replaced," added Motorola Support.
