Its time to durability test the Google Pixel 5! Get your first audiobook and full access to the Plus Catalog for free when you try Audible for 30 days visit www.audible.com/jerryrig or text "jerryrig" to 500 500! Thanks to Audible for sponsoring this video! Weve heard that Google has a new 'metal' Pixel 5 smartphone with wireless charging in the back. But how is that possible?! We know that Wireless charging cant work through metal. Turns out... with a few swift swipes from a razor blade, the 'metal' appears to be a layer of plastic! Very interesting. What are your thoughts? Should Google be able to call the Pixel 5's body metal? Let me know what you think down in the comments.

Mr. Faraday said the wireless charging should have been your clue that it was not 100% encased in metal. And you should have mentioned that there was metal missing over the camera lenses, speaker openings, microphone hole and USB port. And please don't forget the metal missing over the SIM card keyhole.

I think the "100%" in the description is referring to the aluminum being 100% recycled, not that the entire phone being 100% cased in aluminum.

Honestly they should brand it as plastic because if it was made out of aluminum/metal it would have that iPhone look where iPhones are made out of aluminum but now this should be classified as plastic because there is no physical signs of metal until you do a breakdown and it's just basically like most phones but not all where the metal is protecting some of the circuitry

Tbh I get it that they dont additionally disclose the cutout for wireless charging as probably every phone that has plastic holes for antennas and wireless charging dont do it either. Its kind of an obvious thing as you said: "Laws of physics" Glad it doesnt effect the structural integrity of the phone. Besides the occasional stabbing. :)

I would've liked to have known that they utilized bio resin. I enjoy my pixel 5 anyway, but that would've earned some definite extra points in its favor. Based on my basic (freshly googled) information, it looks like bio-resin is generally reconstituted cellulose, similar to the various types/brands of viscose rayon. That would definitely explain why the acetone test didn't to anything. Something that you could maybe do in the future for other devices that are made of bio resin: do a burn test on a chunk that you've removed from the device. I would guess that it'd have a basic heat-resistant coating, but it should otherwise turn more to ash vs developing a hard, shrunken edge.

I don't mind plastic on phones, i really don't. In case of falling, the impact will have little to no effect on the phone. Yes glass is beautiful to hold and stuff, but glass is glass, and glaas breaks. It's nice to see plastic flagship options in phones.

Lt me give you my opinion: I dont think so anyone would buy a phone to do the stuff which ur doing ..... I gt it its a durability test but still no one would do that to his/her phone . So instead of doing that to the phones why don't he give away to some random people it would dedinitely make people happy and make them smile..... I feel this is so unessary !!

If you watch the verges review when the phone came out they say it's a coated metal with a whole cut out. So they told reviewers. That was two months before this video. Wonder why they weren't as transparent on the website

I think the screen starts to tear at the end because you heated it up with the gun. In normal temperature conditions it probably doesn't do that
