Got the Pixel 4 (so far happy with it) and frankly seems sturdy. Not going to try flexing it much. I never put my phone in a back pocket so hard to imagine a situation where this would be a potential issue.

One of the best things I ever saw on the Trump-era internet was from Deadspin; producing that amalgam clip of all the Sinclair stations reading their right wing bullshit fake news propaganda. Read more
