Nexus 6 Units Shipping Defective

If you’re feeling bummed out about how nearly impossible it is to pick up a Nexus 6 right now, the good news? You may have dodged a bullet. We’ve been receiving reports of defective Nexus 6 units being shipped to customers where the back covers are literally coming off.

I can't help but wonder what the reaction to this would be like if the phone in question was the iPhone 6 rather than the Nexus 6.

A few people discover that iPhones will bend when you forcefully attempt to bend them and that apparently warrants intense and heavy media coverage, but a phone ships with many units falling apart in the box? Nothing.
