Last week a video surfaced which showed the Nexus 6P undergoing a durability test in which it was found that not only did the screen seem to scratch pretty easily, but the phone appeared to bend pretty easily using nothing more than barehands. However there was some controversy with regards to the video.
Basically the video featured a lot of scene changes and cuts, leading some to question whether or not the video was edited to make the Nexus 6P look bad on purpose. That being said, the video’s creator JerryRigEverything has decided to upload a new video. This time the video shows off an entirely brand new Nexus 6P, without any cuts or transitions which should hopefully make it seem more “fair”.
The video shows Jerry unboxing a brand new Nexus 6P where upon opening, you can find all of its contents still wrapped in its plastic. Sure, one could argue that maybe he replaced all the plastic wrappings but that does seem like it would be taking things a bit far. That being said, it looks like the end results are the same in which the phone seemed to bend pretty easily in his hands.
According to Jerry, he opines that this is because the aluminum used in the phone is free floating and not secured to the rest of the device. This has resulted in its structural integrity being compromised, leading to it bending easily. However despite all of that, the Nexus 6P is still a pretty damn good phone.
It has amazing hardware under the hood, a beautiful display, and a camera that rivals all of its Nexus predecessors. What this video goes to show is that maybe you’ll want to take extra good care of it if you’re hoping for it to last you the next few years.
