The Google Pixel 7a was unveiled last week at the I/O event. The Pixel 6a successor features a 64-megapixel dual camera setup at the back and is powered by Google’s own Tensor G2 SoC. It has an IP67 rating and an updated design. Now, to see if the Pixel 7a would hold up like the Pixel 6a, YouTuber Zack Nelson from JerryRigEverything put the device through his durability test. The majority of Nelson’s various customary bend, burn, and scratch tests seem to have been successfully completed by the new handset. However, the expensive Pixel 7 Pro was found to be more sturdy than the cheaper device, which did not burn, break, bend, or lose its shape during the tests.

Zack Nelson put the most recent Pixel 7a through a number of durability tests in his most recent JerryRigEverything episode. The phone is first put through an OLED panel scratch test. At level 6 of the Mohs hardness scale, the Corning Gorilla Glass 3-protected phone screen began to exhibit scratches, just like the majority of other devices. At level 7, the grooves get deeper.

The Google Pixel 7a’s sides are made of metal, just like the Pixel 6a. The volume and power buttons as well as the camera unit were cut with Nelson’s razor blade. A distinct metal coating is also present on the rear camera module. The Google Pixel 7a’s rear panel is made of plastic as opposed to glass like the Google Pixel 7 Pro. The device’s fingerprint scanner developed problems after getting scratched.

A 6.1-inch full-HD+ OLED screen is on the Pixel 7a. Before the pixels on a 90Hz refresh rate display start to turn white, they remain stable for 25 seconds under a lighter’s flame. The OLED panel, however, fully recovers.

The Pixel 7a underwent a bend test in the final round. Under the strain, the device performed admirably and hardly displayed any signs of bending. Nelson claims that there is “almost no flex at all” when bent from the back and “almost no flex at all” when bent from the front. According to him, the Pixel 7a outperforms the more expensive Pixel 7 Pro in the bend test and has much better durability than the Asus Rog Ultimate 7.
