We can confirm: If you try to snap a Nexus 6P in half, it will snap in half

"Well, duh?"

Google's Nexus 6P is a big, brilliant new phone. It's already been heralded by many as the "best Android phone ever made" - and we're thoroughly impressed with its vast array of features. 

But - like the iPhone 6 Plus before it - it transpires that if you apply an uncomfortable amount of pressure to the 6P, it bends.

Which is a bit like saying "If you drop a laptop, it breaks".

Or, "If you drive your car into a wall, bad things happen". 

YouTuber 'tester' Jerry Rig Everything applies a fair amount of grunt to bust the 6P open, citing a lack of screws and a "floating" build behind the weak structure. 

Will it bend if you sit down with it in your pocket? No. Will it behave like a normal phone if you use it like a normal phone? Yes. We've got one in our pocket right now. It isn't bending.

So, in summary - don't try bending your phone. It'll probably break. Or, in the case of a Nokia 3210, it'll break you.
