Redmi Note 7 & Google Pixel 4 XL Are Most Fragile Smartphones In 2019

Aside from Redmi Note 7 and Google Pixel 4 XL, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max are also listed in the least durable smartphone list.

If you are interested in torture and durability tests of electronics products, you probably know JerryRigEverything. This is a YouTube channel that has high-quality durability tests of many popular smartphones out there. Recently, JerryRigEverything has released the 2019 Durability Awards ranking. This unique ranking lists the most durable and the least durable smartphones he has tested in 2019 and you might find the result surprising.

In JerryRigEverything's ranking, the Google Pixel 4 XL and Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 are the top two candidates for the most fragile smartphone title in 2019. According to him, these are two of a few smartphones on the market that cannot survive the bend test.

The Redmi Note 7 is so fragile that during testing, JerryRigEverything could even break the phone with his bare hands. The sad story also continues with the Pixel 4 XL, "helping" it to take the second position in the most fragile smartphone rankings of 2019. Specifically, after the bend test, and the frames of the Pixel 4 XL were bent and the back of the phone was completely separated.

Pixel 4 XL is also "honored" to be among the most fragile smartphones of 2019.

Having failed with the Pixel 4 XL, however, Google still received the good news when Pixel 3a was rated as the most durable smartphone of last year. This is a mid-range phone model launched in May 2019.

The Google Pixel 3a price in India is Rs. 29,999.

JerryRigEverything said that the Pixel 3a impressed him with its durable design and it is also easy to repair, even though it is not an expensive flagship model. You only need a few minutes to disassemble components and replace certain components inside this smartphone, including the screen.

Notably, JerryRigEverything also lists the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max into the least durable smartphone group and have a high repair cost. Last year, the iPhone XS also appeared on the list for the same reason.

Some other smartphones that also failed in the bend test of JerryRigEverything are Royole Flexpai - the first foldable smartphone in the world, Samsung Galaxy Fold, and OnePlus 7T.
