Google Pixel 6 Pro Durability Test Video
JerryRigEverything on YouTube released Google Pixel 6 Pro durability test video using the subtitle “How much Plastic this time?” to tease the last Pixel 5.
JerryRigEverything first divided the phone screen into 1 to 10 different areas for Mohs hardness testing, and the results showed that the Corning Gorilla Victus used in the screen at Mohs hardness level 6 showed slight scratches, and the scratches were more pronounced when the Mohs hardness was level 7.
He then tested the protruding lens module on the back of the phone, which is about 2.5mm thick, and used a carving knife to test the hardness of the lens module on the rear camera, which showed that the flat part of the lens cover was glass and the bent area between the glass cover and the body was plastic.
He then tested the Pixel 6 Pro‘s side bezels, bottom bezel, buttons, and SIM card tray, all of which he said were made of aluminum. But the top bezel is plastic because of an antenna placed on the top bezel.
JerryRigEverything also conducted a burn-in test on the Pixel 6 Pro’s screen, which left irreversible pixel burn-in on the screen. At the end of the video, JerryRigEverything speculated that the Pixel 6 Pro’s double-layer glass design might break during the bending session, but in the end, the Pixel 6 Pro passed his bending test with flying colors.
