Nexus devices have never really claimed to be the most robust phones and tablets in the market place. There are plenty of drop videos of devices like the Nexus 7 that show just how fragile Nexus devices can be. I feel like my Nexus 6 by Motorola is pretty tough. I have dropped it more than once and the screen is fine. It is basically mint! Mind you its bee in an Urban Armor Gear Case.
There is a very suspect video circulating the web right now which suggest the Nexus 6P is the most fragile Nexus ever. He first does a pretty major scratch test. He then for some reason does a "flame test" heating up the right edge of the screen with a lighter. I have a feeling this was planned. The next test is an unbox therapy style bend test. Of course the device snaps in half.
A phone's integrity relies on all parts being held together to strengthen the device. A metal frame by itself bends with no issues. The screen by itself would bend with no issues, but when you stack all the parts together the device is much stronger. By melting the devices seal with a lighter the Nexus 6P's integrity was destroyed. Of course the device snapped in half. I am not saying that the phone may still be fragile. I just don't consider this a fair test. No worries I'm sure the video will get hundreds of thousands of views.
