Things to do with the Pixel 4 XL: Take many beautiful pictures. Things you should not do with the Pixel 4 XL: Bend it. The latter hint comes from the latest JerryRigEverything video, in which the Pixel 4 XL goes through the usual durability tests. Unfortunately, you can add the latest pixel to the list of phones that experience an error.

The video you can see below goes through the usual tests. The Pixel 4 has Gorilla Glass, so it, like almost every other phone, scratched a hardness of 6-7. The aluminum frame has a grippy "hybrid" coating that you can scrape off not that you should. The problems begin with the bending test. The first bend seems to be okay, but in the back bend cracks appear at the top and bottom of the phone.

The cracks form on the antenna lines of the phone and tear the metal frame, which is a natural flaw. However, the Pixel 4 XL does not seem to have the required internal reinforcement to prevent aggressive bending from cracking. I do not know how this affects the actual use of the phone. If you are sitting correctly on the Pixel 4, one of the antenna leads could possibly be cracked. Ragardless, this is not a good look for Google if it sells the phone for almost $ 1

,000. In part two of JerryRigEverything's journey into the deepest layers of his broken Pixel 4 XL, he wants to find out why Google's latest smartphone near cracked the upper and lower edges during the bending test. You can watch the video below to find out for yourself. If you prefer to skip the squeak of a sharp blade that grinds against metal and glass (there's plenty of it here), read the answer below in this article.

SPOILER ALARM: Although the exterior of the pixel The series 4 is made of glass and aluminum, all four sides of the inside walls are completely molded of plastic. This makes the Pixel 4 phones feel lighter compared to other flagships, but they are also more prone to breaking at the appropriate pressure.
