This is the Nexus 6 in question. At first glance, there is nothing wrong with it, but ...

Seen from the side, it looks like this. The battery is inflated and the back cover is raised. It's not a terminal that can remove the back cover, so it's obviously unusual. I didn't use this device regularly because it's an old model, but I was 'always connected to the charger' in case I needed it.

The power will turn on even in this state, but it is not a good idea to leave it as it is because the

Y! Mobile has also closed the repair acceptance because it became difficult to secure the parts necessary for repair. Unfortunately, there was no way to repair it, so the 'Nexus 6' was scrapped with this battery expansion.

In addition, the first 'battery expansion' was confirmed six months after purchasing this terminal in 2014. You can check the situation at that time in the following article.
