Google Is Apparently Shipping Their Pixel Smartphones In A Horrible Manner
The Google Pixel is the first flagship smartphone launched by the company. It comes equipped with the latest features and technology making it VR ready for their Daydream platform. But recently, complaints have been coming in on how Google is shipping these refurbished Pixel smartphones in a horrible manner. A Reddit user by the name of CZbwoi recently revealed a video showing how Google shipped his refurbished Pixel smartphone.
As you can tell, he resealed his Fedex package to its original state (to the best of his abilities). The Fedex package came in a gigantic and unproportional box for the Pixel smartphone. CZbwoi states, “Here’s how Google sends out their refurbished phones to people that payed almost a thousand dollars for a new phone. This is how my phone gets mailed out to me.” When he opens the package, he only finds one layer of bubble wrap. After, CZbwoi turns on the phone to find it broken. The screen is pixelated and damaged.
In CZbwoi’s Reddit post, multiple people claimed that their Pixel phones were shipped to them in the same manner. A Reddit user by the name of Tachyonic stated, “Received two replacement Pixel XLs – original had mic issues. First replacement had a cracked screen. Can confirm, both came in the exact same packaging with minimal bubble wrap.” And to his reply, hopjuicer stated, “Same for me, two refurbished replacements, both in the same half-assed packaging. First one the screen went black after a day. Second replacement seems to be holding out ok.”
However a Reddit user by the name of SPITFIYAH, explained that this can be due to third party companies shipping the Pixel phones. “Warehouseman here! This could be due to a line of different pickers or packers handling packages at the warehouse Google rented to house refurbished product. Your phones may have come from the same place, but the process can vary based on the level of skill and/or competency of the temp worker the warehouse staff desperately hired to fulfill a project from ‘gasp Google!'”
