Google Pixel 6 Pro undergoes durability test

Ricky, 05 November 2021

YouTuber JerryRigEverything never lets us down when it comes to testing the durability of the latest smartphones. The next device to undergo Zack's torture test is the Google Pixel 6 Pro.

Starting with the camera bar (also called camera visor), it protrudes about 2.5mm from the back of the phone. The flat portion of the camera cover is flat glass, but the curved are made of plastic and the length of the camera bar that spans across the back of the phone makes it so that It doesn't rock on a table.

The sides, bottom, buttons, and SIM tray are all made from aluminum, but the top side of the frame is made of plastic due to the placement of an antenna, presumably the mmWave one. Both the rear glass panels and the front display glass is made of Gorilla Glass Victus with light scratches seen at MoH's hardness level 6 with deeper grooves at level 7.

After undergoing the "pixel burn test", the Pixel 6 Pro gets some scratches on the area over the in-display fingerprint reader. After speculating that the dual-pane glass and camera bar seems like it may cause concern for structural integrity failure, the Pixel 6 Pro breezes through Zack's bend test.
