I am wondering if this is common issue?

More importantly, anyone with white model have this problem too?

I am thinking to cancel my order and wait for later batch if that could make difference ...

Oh wow... I was hoping this wasn't an issue anymore. Hasn't happened to my midnight blue yet.

if it is the same problem the M8 has it is not really fix able without a full change over. Its the glue that holds the letters on. The glue that holds the letters on the HTC One M8, HTC Logo starts to fail after the phone is heated over and over again. I am not surprised the N6 has the same problem. I think it looks better without letters really. I am sure the white has the same problem. You may be able to use super glue after it falls off and see if that is better.

It's kind of a non-issue in my opinion.

Non issue? For a 700 dollar phone, it certainly is an issue. Had this happen on my nexus 5. Hope this is a rare occurrence.

There's another thread somewhere here on this. People that ordered from Motorola said Moto is doing advance replacement for this issue. I'd hope Google would do the same thing for gp orders.

Yup, non-issue. I don't expect things like that to stay in forever. That's like saying that the coating on my drums should never wear off, but it does.

I can understand if the device has been used for quite a long time.

But, just few days? Come on ...

It's an issue with a $700 phone, and we're not talking about 'forever'... we're talking about letters falling off with only days of use. I would be pissed if it happened to me. That would be equivalent of the paint peeling off your drum within days after purchase.
