    Saw this over on Reddit and gaining a little steam:
    https://www.reddit.com/r/Nexus6P/com...us_6p_bump_in/

    I saw MKBHD's Nexus 6P review this morning and he reported this on his "early" model graphite version. On Reddit thread above, even aluminum units are having this issue. Uggg....

    How about any word from you guys that received your 6P this week?? Thanks...

    Nothing on mine either. I'd definitely ask for a new one. Hopefully it doesn't take a while.

    Mine doesn't have a hump down there, but it is a little unevenly seated. So one side is flush and the other is slightly recessed. Doesn't bother me one bit.

    No bump on mine. Maybe try applying a little heat, or just get a new one.

    I just watched this video as I am still waiting to order the 6P but I am not so sure now, sorry if this video upsets some owners but I feel it needs to be seen just so owners are aware that it seems quite a fragile phone.

    Interesting. If you watch his other videos he does not seem to hold the lighter on nearly as long, it looks like for the 6P he needed longer just for it to show some sign, and by that point it was permanent. Curious if he tried that with the others.

    Anyway, as I will rock a basic case and tempered glass protector, only the bending test would really worry me. And even so, unless you take a pretty terrible fall, it seems like you would not often have to worry about it bending like that.

    I'm still looking forward to my 6P.

    I doubt its as bad as the video looks. He compromised the integrity of the phone by cracking the glass and heating it up with fire. That is not considered normal usage, lol.

    I have a theory that this is just a little publicity stunt to get the early adopters to subscribe to his channel.

    I hope you're right as I was just about to order the 6P but this has thrown me a bit!

    All phones will suffer from that abuse. Nothing to worry about. Who in their right mind would spend hundreds of pounds an then purposely scratch it or hold a lighter to it or try and bend it like that.

    If this is a true representation of the phone's durability I am going to have to go back to the MXPE.

    If you look at his thumbs, you can see he was applying a lot of force. No reviewer has mentioned their phones accidentally bending, so I wouldn't worry too much yet.

    I hope you are right but he seemed to bend the phone very easily without applying much pressure!

    hmmmm ..., well the scratch test on the back pretty much made my decision about whether to go with the aluminum or not. I must admit I'm a little concerned about the bend test, in terms of putting it in a back pants pocket.

    I've had my 6p for a week now, seems fine to me. MKBHD mentioned he had his for over a month and hasn't reported a hint of any bending issues. So we'll see.
