The Google Pixel 7 Pro camera lock barely stands up to the durability test

The main problem highlighted by this test is the resistance of the metal plate which protects the cameras. Google has implemented this new design to offer greater protection to the sensors, but the result appears to be just the opposite. The metal plate, in fact, is detached from the side frame due to the presence of the plastic bands for the antennas, compromising the rigidity of Google's Pixel 7 Pro. While not breaking completely, the result is one greater ease of folding when pressure is applied to the back of the phone.

Another problem with this plaque lies in the finish, being made of anodised metal, a technique that offers the side toWear. As JerryRigEverything points out, lo rubbing against materials such as keys, coins and even the very pocket it is carried in can lead to a deterioration of the metallic finish. This video highlights how metal isn't always better than glass. The Gorilla Glass Foodsin fact, it protects the 6,7 ″ display and the back of the phone very well. The advice, therefore, is to equip the phone with a cover, especially to protect the camera lock can make everyone turn pale also on DxOMark.

New details | Update 04/11

The time comes for teardown Google Pixel 7 Pro by JerryRigEverything, a procedure that allows us to better understand the structural problems of the phone. Disassembling it, we notice that the metal structure inside stops right where the photographic module begins, not guaranteeing the rigidity that would have prevented such a large flexion. A result that closely resembles what happened with Nexus 6P, which like the new Pixels had a similar photographic module.
