The Google Pixel 8 Pro was drop and scratch-tested by PBKreviews on YouTube and survived. The test consists of a few drops from the waist and head height onto the phone’s front, back, and side.
The only genuinely critical damage was to one of the display’s corners but it doesn’t impede the phone’s regular operation.
The Pixel 8 Pro also withstood a bag of dirt and gravel with almost no issues. Here’s the video. These drop tests may not be scientific, but they are fascinating to watch.
