Google Pixel 7a turned out to be more reliable than the more expensive Pixel 7 Pro in the durability test

If you remember last year’s Pixel 7 Pro durability test, Google’s flagship almost completely failed in the bending test, which, of course, does not have to be a criterion for refusing to use a smartphone in everyday life.

Anyone who still appreciates a stronger smartphone body and doesn’t depend on a telephoto lens, more storage and a better display, for example, now has another option in the Google universe – the Pixel 7a, which was officially launched a few days ago.

The new Pixel 7a smartphone was the winner in the durability test, which was conducted by the well-known YouTuber Zach Nelson from the JerryRigEverything (JRE) channel.

The scratch-resistant display and the stable metal frame give good results. And the plastic back, at least, has the advantage that it is not in danger of breaking when dropped. The front end, of course, is made of Gorilla Glass in version 3 – so that’s pretty reliable too.

In addition to the IP67-only certified case (the Pixel 7 Pro has a more water-resistant IP68), the mid-range smartphone has performed well in terms of stability.

As a tanker, it withstands the bending test, proving to be significantly more durable than its more expensive sibling, the Pixel 7 Pro.

A visual test of the JRE can show why this is so – Google uses a new, more stable “intermediate frame architecture” in the Pixel 7a. According to the test, it becomes clear that the metal visor of the camera is not part of the frame – unlike the Pixel 7 Pro.
