Google?s Nexus 6P reliability was put to the test and failed miserably when a viral video revealed how the smartphone could easily bend. Although a lot of experts countered the video suggesting that the bend test ?had some flaws that rendered it unfair,? a new video, which has a more detailed explanation of the problem, has surfaced that officially gives the Nexus 6P a major design flaw, according to Daily Mail.
Major bending problem
The YouTube video, posted by Zachary Nelson in his YouTube channel JerryRigEveything, explained the serious issue of the Google Nexus 6P. ?Most smartphones are super solid, so when this one snapped in my hand like a pretzel it was very shocking,? he said in an interview with Daily Mail.
He reveals in the video the Nexus 6P easily bending with a slight force. ?I am being serious when I say my little sister could have bent this phone in half,? Nelson said in the video. ?The aluminum frame in not actually screwed in, or attached to the back housing of the 6P.?
?They are completely free floating separate entities,? he added. ?The only thing holding the aluminum mid-frame to the rear of the phone is a super thin piece of glass on top of the device and a few plastic dove tail joints inside.? Nelson then made a comment on how the Nexus 6P was made. ?Must have been a brainstorming amateur hour at Huawei when they suggested joining aluminum with a woodworking joint.
?If the aluminum back and mid-frame were solidly screwed together, the thinness wouldn?t be an issue,? he explained. ?But since the mid-frame freely floats right out of the rear frame when it?s bending, the side walls of the rear frame become super worthless by themselves.?
Nexus 6P Specs
Considering that Google?s Nexus 6P has a major bending problem, it still has a notable set of specifications to be enticing. It has a 5.7-inch screen with a 12.3MP camera (Sony sensor) that also has 4K video support. The smartburst feature can also let you capture 30 frames a second to create those quirky GIFs. 6P also has excellent stereo speakers for music junkies and a new USB-C port (faster charging) for those busy bees.
Taking everything into deliberation, it?s basically a clash between hardware and software fans. So what do you think about the Nexus 6P?s bending issue? Sound off in the comment section below.
