As you may know the user interface of the Google Camera app was updated with the Nexus 5X and 6P. Out for over a month, the new camera update was nowhere to be found on other devices, until today…

Several old Nexus devices just don’t support Android 6.0 Marshmallow (and many never will), and that has left some owners of older phones feeling left out.

Picking up the device they found the glass cracked and a pile of glass shavings left on the table. Among two users who shared images, the damage looks remarkably similar…
