In a durability test of YouTube channel JerryRigEverything, Google’s new Pixel 7 Pro shows a weak point: the camera strip. The first cracks appear there in the endurance test, and the first scratches appear quickly here in everyday use.
The distinctive camera strip on the back of the Google Pixel 7 Pro makes the new smartphone look special. Unfortunately, the camera strap itself also appears to be particularly vulnerable to damage. This was shown in a YouTube video by the “JerryRigEverything” channel, where he examines the flexibility of the smartphone.
a little scratch
In the video, JerryRigEverything puts the Pixel 7 Pro through multiple tests he has previously performed on several other smartphones. For example, he scratches the screen with various tools and testifies to the new Pixel smartphone that at least the materials are damaged here Mohs level 6 are necessary. This makes the screen tough like most other smartphones.
On the other hand, the aforementioned camera strap was noticeably less convincing: according to the data in the video, the first scratches appeared on this even before the first tests, simply by unpacking and the first attempts to use. Appropriately, the anodized aluminum surface of the rod can be scratched in several ways in subsequent tests – eg by light contact with a coin. Without a protective cover, this part of the smartphone is increasingly likely to be affected.
The video also shows that the Google Pixel 7 Pro’s weak point is right on the camera bar: in the bend test, the smartphone scored significantly at the bottom connection of the bar and stood out from the rest of the side casing. Unlike some other smartphones, the Pixel 7 Pro survived the JerryRigEverything test, but it looks like it just survived.
