YouTube channel JerryRigEverything revealed in an earlier video that the Huawei Nexus 6P’s Gorilla Glass 4-protected screen could be easily scratched. The host also revealed that your baby sister could easily bend the device. Critics, however, were quick to point out that scratching the screen would make it easier to bend the phablet. Some even said that the bend test was rigged. In response to the criticism, Jerry posted a new video on a brand new unit of the Nexus 6P, which showed exactly the same thing.
Bend with ease
In this new video, Jerry performs a bend test on a brand new Huawei Nexus 6P, which he takes out of the box. According to the YouTuber, the phablet has “three fatal structural flaws” in its design. The first can be found on the bottom of the device where an aluminium mid-frame is supposed to make the Nexus 6P harder to bend. How is it flawed? Only a thin film of glass and plastic dovetail joints hold the frame in place.
The second flaw is the thin sidewalls used on the rear aluminum back.
The third flaw is in the area near the power button. Inside the device, this is where the ends of battery and motherboard can be found. It also makes the area a perfect place to make a bend.
So what’s the major difference between this video and the first video? In the first video, the glass was scratched. In this second video, the screen was left alone. Despite not scratching the glass, it still took little effort to bend the Nexus 6P.
Here’s the video:
Aside from proving that you don’t need to scratch the screen of Huawei Nexus 6P to easily bend it and that Jerry did not perform a bend test on the device in his first video, it also proves that Jerry did not rig the test just to grab attention from viewers.
Although the test has proven that there are flaws in the Nexus 6P’s structure, it is still a good device. Just make sure you don’t drop it, scratch it, or bend it in half. So putting it in your back pocket is out of the question.
