Pixel 3 XL Durability Test - Does the back glass Scratch?!

  • Published on Oct 19, 2018
  • Grab your protective Pixel 3 XL dbrand skin HERE: dbrand.com/3XL (Or customize your own phone!) Huge thanks to dbrand for sponsoring this video. Its time to find out how durable the Pixel 3 XL is in real life. How easy does the back glass scratch on the pixel 3? Is the glass soft? or is it actually an abrasive, sanding down bits of whatever it touches? The only way to find out if the Pixel 3 is durable or not is with a durability test.
    Current Pricing of the Pixel 3 XL on Amazon: amzn.to/2XOJcCU
    We start by scratching the screen of the Pixel 3 XL, right below that massive notch. Then we assess the build quality of the body with my super scientific razor knife. Looking at the paint, the metal, and finally we scratch the back glass of the pixel 3 XL. Will a coin scratch the back glass? What about keys, or plastic?

    I would look at the Pixel #3 and #2 both Xls. I went with the Pixel 2. I did not see any reason to spend the extra money for the 3 and Verizon was selling the Pixel 2 XL for half off. I do like the Pixel 2 Xl phone and it feels like I have its bootloader unlocked and debloated. Glad I do not have to mess with that anymore.

      I switched from IPhone 7 Plus to the Google 3 XL and I love it. I've never been a "Apple only" or "Android only" person, I like both. But the Google seems like a happy medium between the two 😊

    The frosted glass is essentially sanding the metal and leaving metal dust stuck in the tiny pores. Like a ceramic mineral test. An acid wash MAY fix it. Maybe.
