Watch this guy snap Google’s Android flagship Nexus 6P phone in half with his bare hands

“What happens if you try to bend the Google-Huawei Nexus 6P smartphone? Well, quite simply, it breaks apart with a sickening crack,” Lorenzo Ligato reports for The Huffington Post.

“On Tuesday, Zack Nelson from YouTube’s JerryRigEverything posted video of a fresh-from-the-box Nexus 6P undergoing a durability test,” Ligato reports. “Both sides of the phone are pulled downward while upward pressure is applied to the middle, forcing the device into a V shape before it snaps in half.”

Ligato reports, “According to Nelson, the device suffers from several ‘fatal structural flaws’ that make it especially vulnerable to bending, and he explains these in depth in the video.”

MacDailyNews Take: If that’s the flagship, imagine the rest of the crap Android has to offer. Stagefright and other malware that’ll never get patched, anyone?

Let’s compare “flagships” right here:

Advice to the frgamandroid settlers: Get a real iPhone.

  1. So where is the ‘Consumer Reports’ test on this phone?! What about NY Times investigation on the break ability of Android phones?! Where are all the pundits calling for Doom for Android based on the ease with which this phone was broken?! 🖖😀⌚️

    1. Yeah, I’m waiting for those guys who cried WOLF about the iPhone 6 BS bend issue to chime in here. We’re all waiting…hello…hello??? We need that report on this.

  2. Shocking. We, however, will not hold our breath waiting for any blame-gate blaze of negative publicity, gasps of moral outrage, sneering blogs, or condemnatory op-eds. ‘Cause it’s not, y’know, Apple.

    1. I do believe you need to check your facts,

      The Apple Store lists the 16Gb iPhone 6s at $649 and the 128Gb iPhone 6s at $849. But, I guess facts don’t seem to matter in the anti-apple world?

      1. First off. Thank you for pointing out my mis-transciption. Yes, of course I was referring to the “6S Plus”, which is the comparably sized model to the Nexus 6P. Both are the more expensive model in their lineup. So thanks for having me “clarify my facts”.

        Secondly, it only shows that you don’t need to be anti-Apple to make a typo, that’s a bonus. In this context of course, anti-Apple means wanting Apple to offer an even better valued device to Apple customers. But is it what’s best for the team? /s

      1. And the Google car remains merely a clunky R&D thingy, with its goofy spinning visual sensor on top. From my POV, the whole thing is for publicity. If they actually make advances in self-driving technology, that’s great. But what they’re driving around doesn’t even qualify as a decent prototype. It’s just an R&D gadget they’ve stuck together. If they tried to sell that thing as it is, it would receive major laughter from the professional auto market.
