Google affirms Pixel 5 screen gaps are part of the phone’s design
- November 4, 2020
Not long after the Google Pixel 5 made its presentation a month ago, purchasers took to online forums over worries about a potential design deformity — gaps were spotted between the phone’s screen and body. Presently, the organization has at last tended to these worries.
As indicated by a community delegate in the official Pixel forums, the gapsare not a design defect or an instance of poor workmanship however part of the phone’s design.
“We’ve had a chance to investigate units from customers and, combined with our quality control data from the factory, we can confirm that the variation in the clearance between the body and the display is a normal part of the design of your Pixel 5,” says the representative.
It’s an especially abnormal statement thinking about that various clients on a similar discussion string report gaps in better places and of fluctuating sizes. Only one out of every odd phone has a noticeable gap, either.
All things considered, the update expresses that the gap has “no effect on the water and dust resistance or functionality” of the phone. This implies clients can at present confide in the phone’s IP68 rating.
It’s muddled why the gap exists, however. It could be the strategy used to tie down the screen’s glass to the rest of the phone’s frame. Regardless of whether is anything but a quality control issue, it stays an untidy, unattractive feature of the company’s flagship.
