According to user feedback from Google’s support community and social media such as Reddit, the Pixel 5 has gaps in the screen and body and can even fit into a piece of paper. Many users worry that this will affect the phone’s waterproofing features, and think there is a problem with Google’s quality control, but Google officials responded that these gaps are a normal part of the phone’s design and will not affect waterproofing and dust protection.
In Google’s official support community, says community expert David Pop
Hi, users of the Pixel community
We surveyed several user devices that had this problem, and combined with the factory’s quality control data, we were sure that the gap change between the screen and the body was a normal part of the Pixel 5 design and that it would not affect your water and dust resistance. We will work with individual customers to resolve any issues they may encounter.
Internal parts are not possible to see based on the pictures currently being sunburned by the affected users. According to the disassembly video by foreign digital bloggers, the Pixel 5 can be seen with a layer of waterproof glue in the outer ring of the device, so it may not affect the waterproofing characteristics. However, this gap may cause the device to go gray. Many Pixel 5 users disagree with Google’s official response.
