Google Pixel 3a proves that plastic can be very durable

Ivan, 28 May 2019

The latest phone to pass the JerryRigEverything's durability test is the Google Pixel 3a and it did so without breaking.

The Dragon Tail glass covering the front performed just as well as any Gorilla Glass, scratching at a level 6. The phone also survived the bend test, despite appearing to flex a bit too much.

Here's the full video.

The Google Pixel 3a aims to bring Google's great software and remarkable camera to a record low starting price of 399. That's quite a deal, especially if you you haven't heard of (or don't trust) phones from Realme, Redmi, Honor and the likes. It remains to be seen if the proposition leads to actual market success.

Nope, not going back to plastic that scratches easily. Metal only.

For 400 bucks one can buy Nubia red magic 3 a lot better device for same money. K20 pro, Mi 9, Black shark all of them a lot better devices for same money or less. And many else.
