Video: Google’s Nexus 6P bends easier than iPhone 6 Plus, scratches like an iPhone 5

“Remember ‘#scratchgate’ when the iPhone 5’s slate blue anodized finished scratched off really easily?” Cam Bunton asks for 9to5Mac. “Or last year’s iPhone 6 Plus, which some said bent really easily?”

“Put those two hashtag-gates together and you apparently have the latest flagship Android phone,” Bunton reports.

MacDailyNews Take: Make that a leaky dinghy. That’s the best Android deserves.

“The Nexus 6P is the newest pure Android phone from Google,” Bunton reports, “and [it] is about to come under some new scrutiny from prospective buyers thanks to a video from Jerry Rig Everything on YouTube.”

MacDailyNews Take: The video speaks for itself, but just in case any fragmandroid settlers wander over here ready to puke pure ignorance as usual, let’s compare “flagships” right here:

And, for the conveniently forgetful fragmandroid settlers, here’s what Google’s Android looked like before and after Apple’s iPhone:

Google Android before and after Apple iPhone

New iPhone 6s bend test reveals super-strong aluminum shell – August 19, 2015

    1. Google has private emails and data files showing how Consumers Reports fabricates some of its reviews. And ‘candid photos’ of all the staff. So CR is quiet.

  1. BREAKING NEWS if you heat certain glass with a lighter it becomes fragile depending on how that glass was tempered!!!
    Sigh, people are stupid… heating glass with fire will affect it’s durability.

    1. The phone bent like it was made of butter. I doubt providing a few seconds of heat would suddently turn the thing into Jello. This test proves that it will bend from the subtle force of a fart.

  2. When it comes to Android phones. Who cares?

    When it comes to Apple phones, everyone and their mother, cares. This is why Apple get’s all the hoopla. It’s not that Apple makes something wrong, it’s that everyone cares about what they make, more than anything else.

  3. The Nexus 6P is a joke, hands down.

    Nice POS Google. That defines CHEAP ASS PHONE.

    So, hyper-sensitive tech analcysts: Where’s the OUTRAGE and DOOM MONGERING over Google’s future? You’re nothing but a pack of cards. 😉

    1. It seems to me that everyone, including you, is missing the REAL POINT. Namely that Samsung can’t help COPYING Apple products! —— even down to their supposed FLAWS that lead to a raft of sensational stories in the media and DRAW EVEN MORE attention to the supposedly flawed products, somehow generating SALES. The FUD seems never to work, instead providing Apple with yet more FREE PUBLICITY.

      Of course, that strategy works because the media echo chamber favours anything Apple. Samsung’s next move is to change their name to Appsung. Those reporters are sure to be fooled.

      1. I entirely agree with your first point, that Samsung can’t help but ripoff Apple. I’m extremely confused as to why a supposedly open and democratic society in S. Korea has a company that is entirely typical of a communist / dire socialist society, as if there is a disincentive regarding creativity. Samsung R&D can’t think for themselves? Is this cultural infection from China and N. Korea? It certainly is the opposite of Japan. But Japan tends to think of S. Korea as a sort of ghetto on the other side of the tracks. Hmm. Maybe that’s part of the problem. I’m not close enough to comprehend.

        As for the rest of your comments: Interesting! At first I wanted to disagree that “the media echo chamber favours anything Apple” because that’s certainly not the case from Wallnut Street analcyst dummies. But outside of that funny farm, I expect you’re correct!

        I keep hoping that something or other will give Samsung an iron boot up the arse to force them into real, active creativity. It could happen! 😉 I always welcome real competition with Apple.
