Google Pixel 3 XL Comes with More Glass and Glue than Needed

IFixit, or how the internet calls it the teardown demon, has pulled Pixel 5, Google’s new flagship phone, into pieces. This shows that the company used more glass and glue than needed.

Before being released last week, Pixel 3 and 3 XL were assumed that will not receive their IP68 rating.

iFixit decided to get its hands on the bigger phone, the Pixel 3 XL. Using suction cups and a heat gun, the team figures out how to extract the glass back considered too fragile from the display assembly. They have realized that more glue was used than needed.

The first to be getting out was the 13.2Wh battery which was mounted using glue as well, and the unwary was trapped behind it using a hidden ribbon cable. Note so hidden afterwards. It can’t be compared with the Pixel 2XL’s 13.6WH from last year but it exceeds iPhone XS Max’s 12.08Wh.

The team continued to break it further into pieces and dig by splitting the plowing and speaker housing through even more waterproof adhesive that got the chippery in.

After iFixit has scraped off a lot of thermal paste, they could see that the Pixel 3 XL looks like a Qualcomm party. The company uses silicon for power management, audio, and communication including the Snapdragon 845 processor. Instead of that Google went for the 4GB of Micron DRAM.

Now that you have seen what the Pixel 3XL actually hides, it comes a little harder now to be proud of your phone or to purchase one. Maybe it was a mistake that happened to that specific phone, or maybe that is not such an important aspect of the phone. We are not phone manufacturers or professionals, but we are only the purchasers.
