Free repair of Nexus 6P camera if screen cracked?

My Nexus 6P had a spec under the glass of the camera in the fall and it was repaired for free as this was a common issue. A couple months ago, I cracked the screen which has been a minor nuisance. Now, there is a spec again beneath the glass of the rear camera. I was wondering if this would still be a free repair, or would they decline because of the seemingly unrelated cracked screen?

Hello Nick,

I'd say it will depend on how nice they are. If they only need to repair the camera and not the whole phone, I think it should be ok since they would give you the phone back with the screen cracked but the camera repaired.

Hi Nick, When did you purchase the device, it has a 1 year warranty so if your past that then they wouldn't cover the repair.

Shoot! Thought I bought it in May, but it was a year ago last week. Thanks you two!

Hey Nick, you can always try. I've got an iPhone replace at Apple when I was 1 month out of warranty. Sometime kind words may do the trick ;)
