Android phone with a glass back? Gone is the classic OnePlus metal casing! But we've seen this before...

...and we have a well-tested solution. The heat gun softens things up and the iSclack and opening pick take care of the rest.

We lift the back in trepidation, waiting for the familiar tug of a fingerprint sensor cable.

But we're pleasantly surprised—the OnePlus 6 comes with a cable long enough to completely remove the back without worrying about tearing the cable.

Breakable glass backs are the pits, although this one's far easier to repair than the ones on recent iPhones. (At $549, an iPhone X back glass replacement costs more than this entire phone.)
