    Hey folks, I've owned my Nexus 6P since June of 2016. I bought it new through amazon. I never had a sim card in it because I only use it with wifi and gaming.

    Here's my problem, the screen, on the bottom, is pulling off the phone, It still works but I don't like this. Any solutions?

    Anyone else having this trouble?

    Thank you in advance.

    That's what I was afraid of. Where do I get it checked?

    Maybe I should just trash it and look for a new phone?

    that I cannot tell you. did you order it online or locally? if locally, take it back to the place you got it. if online, maybe take it to your service providers store and have it checked out. or you can contact google. one thing for sure, you now have a good excuse to get a new phone.

    I think what I'll do is not use if for now since I only game with it. Review all the repair videos on youtube, there are quite a few on this issue. Then buy a replacement battery and give the Mr Fix-it roll a shot.

    Thanks for replying!

    I ordered a new battery from ebay along with a few tools. Took me around 40 min to fix. The old battery was puffy and fat.
    Does anyone know what make the battery this way? Is it full of some sort of gas?

    Any who, my phone is back to normal!

    This is the video I followed to aid me in repairing my phone. To be honest,
    I had less trouble than he did. :-D

    it could be a lot of things from faulty battery to bad charger, to bad phone electronics, to just plain old.
