Earlier today a video showing a Nexus 6p bend completely in half started making the rounds on the web. Essentially it showed a guy putting the Nexus 6P through a series of escalating torture tests. If you where unaware of what was really going on in the video you may have believed that the Huawei Nexus 6P truly is the least fragile cell phone of all time. There are a few things you should consider before deciding not to buy a Nexus 6P based on the JerryRigEverything video.
First up lets talk about cell phone durability integrity. Most phones rely on all components working together to ensure durability integrity. For most phones the chasis by itself can easily bend, and the screen by itself can easily bend. When you put everything together the added parts equal the overall sturdiness of the device.
Now consider what the JerryRigEverything Channel is. Zach does all kinds of electronic repair videos on his channel. He understands that when you remove a screen from a phone or tablet you normally have to heat up the seal which holds the screen to the device’s frame. This is essentially what was done with the “fire” test. The Seal was broken separating the screen from the frame. This in and of itself destroys the structural integrity of the device since the frame and the screen are on their own. Also consider the fact that the screen was already cracked due the copious amounts of scratch testing.
I decided to put the device to the test for real in the video above. As you can see I am placing lots of force on the device and there is no give at all. I am not saying that if i did everything in me changing up my grip and going at it for 10 minutes that I could not possibly bend the phone. What I am saying is that a 10 year old girl barely trying would not be able to bend this phone as demonstrated in Zach’s video.
