The least durable smartphones of 2019
Royole FlexPai: the hardest phone to repair in 2019
The first foldable phone to hit the market in January, last year, Royole FlexPai, received the award for "the weakest construction" of 2019. The phone is fragile, easy to bend in the opposite direction and can be irreversibly damaged, as it is almost impossible to repair. The reason is that there are no spare parts on the market, whether we are talking about the original ones, or compatible components.
Mention: the iPhone 11 generation . Zack says that the 11th generation iPhone, as well as the XS / XR generation are difficult to repair, especially since the rear glass cannot be replaced, and the repair in official services is extremely expensive. ($ 600 for the 11 Pro Max, $ 400 for the iPhone 11).

It broke so much. at the back, as well as at the rear, the whole device becomes impossible to use. Basically, the casing was reduced to a hand of shards, held together by the laminating of the glass and the frame around it.
Mention: Pixel 4 XL . The Google Flagship of 2019 is not only a disappointing phone in terms of design and hardware specifications, it is also a very poorly built phone, according to JerryRigEverything. It broke in four places, around the antenna lines on the outer metal frame. In fact, it is the only phone so expensive among those tested last year that managed to break.
