The last phone to go through the JerryRigEverything's durability test is the Google Pixel 4a.
Google's mostly plastic phone did fine, despite losing chunks of its rear panel and sides to a razer. The screen scratches at the same level 6 on Mohs' scale of hardness as any other screen, Ceramic Shield and Victus alike, and the phone doesn't bend, despite being made of a weaker material than metal.
And there's a moral victory in the test for Google as its phone survived a test that the OnePlus Nord, one of its main rivals, didn't.
I have the phone for a few days and already a ton of micro scratches all over the screen! I've been babying this phone. This is ridiculous and the quality is horrible compared to the 2xl it replaced
Just as I finished setting up my pixel 4a, I put it face down on my steel laptop case (never doing that again). Slid off like a melting ice cube and dropped 3 feet onto a tile floor - not a scratch.
Dropped the phone today onto my desk from a height of about 600mm. No cracks in the screen but the phone is dead. Not happy
