Blogger JerryRigEverything made it to the Google Pixel 4 XL smartphone to put it to the standard test suite.
The glass test was passed as usual. The heating test is useless, so you can not mention it. But with the bend test, which is just the most useful among the trials of a blogger, everything did not work out as one might expect.
As you can see, the smartphone first cracked in one place, and then in another. Moreover, it was not glass that cracked, but a metal frame, but the rear window and screen remained intact.
Given the results of other top-end and not only smartphones, this result can be called a failure. Yes, there were smartphones that broke even more with even less effort, but the Pixel 4 XL clearly stands out from the modern flagships, and not for the better.
