OnePlus 6 is the latest flagship device from popular manufacturer OnePlus. The OnePlus 6 is currently one of the strongest device available in the market, but as of now a new issue emerged on the internet today. Multiple OnePlus 6 owners on Reddit have reported about back glass cracking incident from the same spot. The rear glass along volume buttons are reported to be shattered at the same spot even with little to no provocation.
Although OnePlus 6 follow the same trend of being a strongest device but its elegant design may be vulnerable to spontaneous cracking. We have quoted the story of each user separately in this guide so that you get a better idea about the Glass Cracking issue on OnePlus 6. The user Southernboyj claimed that the rear glass broke by itself and another user Just_a_Barrel shared the image of his device cracked from the same spot as Southernboyj claimed.

“Hey guys, just an interesting post. I think the OnePlus 6 back Glass must be exceptionally weak. I’ve had my phone since launch day, and it’s been in a OnePlus Sandstone case since Day 1.
I take it out of the case pretty frequently to clean it. Somehow in the last 24 hours the back Glass cracked without it even being dropped or subject to anything rigerous. It was Sunday so I was just at my house most of the day.
I found another poster on here who’s Glass cracked in the same spot (from the volume rocker outward). Wonder if there’s some kind of design flaw there?”

“Hey all, I received my phone Friday along with the nylon case and I’ve been loving it ever since. I put the phone in the case the second I opened everything and haven’t taken it out until today.
I was about to show off the glass back when I pulled the phone out to find that the back had cracked, alot:

It has only been dropped about 3 times because my daughter was watching YouTube videos, but it’s only been from the height of the bed or below.
I thought the nylon case would be enough to prevent this but I guess not.
Does anyone know what I can do? I know the warranty only covers defects, so that’s not an option. would a repair shop be able to get a replacement back for this?”
Taking into consideration we assumed that the issue seems to be a manufacturing fault, but still no one denies that OnePlus 6 is the most perfect device, any thoughts?
