With the Nexus 6 only just beginning to reach retailers in decent quantities, it seems that Motorola is having a few issues with build quality. A number of Nexus 6 owners have been reporting issues with the battery cover separating from the back of the phone.
According to Phandroid who put the pieces together, this is an issue that appears to be fairly wide spread. Reports have surfaced on reddit, Twitter and Google+, with some users reporting issues straight out of the box, while others are seeing the separation occur over several weeks of use.
For their part, Motorola in the US has acknowledged the issue, replying to a tweet from a user experiencing the issue that they have been seeing ‘a few’.
@ChrisCannon396 We're seeing a few — bad luck to get two! Do you need help getting this one replaced?

Phandroid also reports that issues with separation have plagued other recent Motorola handsets such as the Motorola Droid Turbo, as well as the Moto X 2014.
We’ve yet to see reports in Australia of this issue, but we’re keen to hear from you if you have had this happen to your Moto X 2014 or Nexus 6.
