The Pixel 6 Pro is Google's most convincing flagship smartphone for years. Does this also make it the Mountain View giant's most durable Android device of years? The YouTuber Zach Nelson puts the new device through his famous JerryRigEverything series of tests.

The Google Pixel 6 Pro has launched with potential vast improvements in UX, camera performance and specs on the previous 5. It has also debuted with a substantial redesign compared to the 2020 flagship. Now, a new video investigates whether its new look makes it any less durable.

Zach Nelson has just featured the 6 Pro as the latest device to face the dreaded introduction to the JerryRigEverything channel. The famous vlogger found it has more metal and glass than the "bio-resin"-coated Pixel 5. On the other hand, he did find that it owes part of the shape of the new visor-like rear camera hump to plastic at the sides.

The 6 Pro's display also emerged unscathed, besides the usual "scratches at a level 6, with deeper grooves at a level 7"; then again, it was left with much more permanent scars than usual at the end of the classic 'burn test'. Nevertheless, the phone proved as resistant to a concerted bend test as did the Pixel 5 (if not the 4 XL) before it. Therefore, new Pixel users have nothing to worry about - in that respect, at least.
