The world went kind of nuts when the iPhone 6 was subject to聽Bendgate back when it was released in fall of 2014. Luckily, Apple has doubled down to fix the problem when they released the iPhone 6S/6S Plus this year by making their phones so much stronger with their custom Aluminum 7000 alloy exterior. It passed the bend test this year with flying colors. Now there is a phone that recently made its debut that hasn鈥檛 had quite the same luck. We鈥檙e talking about the Google flagship handset, the Huawei Nexus 6P.


Zack of JerryRigEverything recently recorded himself testing the durability of the Nexus 6P using the scratch test, bend test and the infamous bend test. Beginning with the scratch test, he used numbered picks in accordance to Moh鈥檚 Scale of Hardness. On the scale a one is the 聽of talc powder while a 10 is the hardness of diamonds. Scratches begin leaving a mark of the Nexus鈥 Gorilla Glass screen around聽the聽sixth pick.


While he鈥檚 pointing at the screen right after the scratch test, lo and behold, the screen actually cracks under the pressure of just his finger. OMG. This doesn鈥檛 bode聽well for the Google phone. AT. ALL.


Next up is the burn test. The heat from the flame left white patches on the display that didn鈥檛 go away even when the phone was turned off. Zack mentions that every other phone including the iPhone has survived the burn test. Oh boy, that鈥檚 bad news for Google.


And finally, the bend test.聽In the video, Zack says, 鈥淚 am being completely serious when I say my little sister could have bend this phone in half with her hands.鈥 Part of the flaw in the integrity of the phone is thanks to a custom plastic dovetail joint intended to 鈥渒eep the phone intact.鈥 Sadly, dovetailing, a 聽woodworking technique that locks two pieces of wood together, doesn鈥檛 translate so well when it鈥檚 used for plastic and aluminum.


He even filmed the bend test TWICE聽just to be sure as people argued he鈥檇 compromised the stiffness of the phone with the burn test the first time. Sadly, the Nexus 6P failed once again. He also makes a valid point in his second video. He says, 鈥淒urability test videos like this one aren鈥檛 a waste of time. They鈥檙e what sparks changes in the cell phone industry. If nobody caught flaws improvements would never be made. I鈥檒l be Google never uses this plastic dovetail joint again.鈥

Your move, Google.
