Google started repairing the Pixel 4 with software updates, which has become a kind of boring tradition for the series of phones.
For now, Google has corrected the problem of regular display and still has to solve the vulnerability of 3D face unlocking, which can unlock the phone even with eyes closed.
However, Pixel 4 has a huge bug that no number of software updates can solve. It bends.
We have come a long way since 2014, when the first iPhone 6 buyers discovered a troublesome problem.
Apply enough pressure on the first-generation thin aluminum frames to bend them without damaging the structure of the phone.
Apple quickly solved the problem “Bendgate” and made sure that it does not happen again.
But every new iPhone since the iPhone 6 has been tested for bending problems.
YouTube channel is a constant source of sustainability testing for new devices.
The same test is performed for each new mobile phone and the pixel 4 has been treated in the same way. To the surprise of those watching the clip, the Pixel 4 XL has a huge design flaw that allows it to bend.
And the situation is even worse than that of the iPhone 6. The antenna wires on the sides of the metal frame appear to endanger the structural integrity of the phone and cause irreparable damage.
As you can see in the picture above, the Pixel 4 folds in two places on both sides – or rather, it breaks.
The screen still seems to work, but once you’ve damaged the phone, you can not go back.
This is a big problem for a flagship phone, especially for a phone supposed to compete with the iPhone and other flagship Android.
You should therefore pay particular attention to how to handle the handset and store it in bags, pants and other places.
It is also a good idea not to sit on it, as it may not be able to withstand the extra pressure.
If the Pixel 4 XL bends so easily, the Pixel 4 will certainly not improve, because the handsets have the same design and the same specifications.
Ironically, the other Google pixel tradition is that it replicates the choices and features of the iPhone’s design. Unfortunately, Pixel 4 does not seem to copy the durability of the iPhone. Google must solve this problem immediately.
In the meantime, watch the durability test video to see how Pixel 4 tears under pressure:
