OnePlus 6 phone comes with a back glass panel which quickly tends to break if you drop the phone and the backside hits the surface directly without any buffer. Many customers don’t use any back cover to protect the phone, resulting in relatively quick damage. The OnePlus 6 phone comes with a metal frame, and when you drop the phone, the metal frame can’t absorb the shock and passes it to the back glass and thus causes quick damage.
As we all know, glass breaks more easily than plastic back panels, and the OnePlus 6 Back panel is made of glass material. The back glass comes pasted on the backside, and even after damage, the glass stays glued to the surface and doesn’t come off automatically. You’ll see visible cracks on the back panel, but immediate replacement might not be necessary.
When should you replace the OnePlus 6 Back Glass?
The OnePlus Six back panel is much prone to damage, and you don’t need to replace it as soon as it breaks. Many mobile phones come with a glass structure, and if you drop the phone, the back glass breaks very quickly. The display comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection, and it is always safe from minor drops, but back glass isn’t safe.
The back glass is fitted edge to edge, and even a slight drop will create pressure on one corner, and the crack will spread to the remaining portion of the glass. We saw several cases when a slight drop cracked the back panel, but the display stayed intact. If you don’t use a back cover, then a broken back glass looks very bad and creates a negative impression among your friends and colleagues. In such a situation, you should replace the back glass immediately.
If the cracks are minimal and you use a back cover, you don’t need to replace it immediately. Please note that if glass splinters are coming out from the back panel, then you should replace it immediately because dust, moisture, and other environmental impurities can easily enter inside your phone. If the back portion is fully sealed, you might wait for some time to replace the back panel.
