Shortly after Google Pixel 5 made its debut last month, buyers went to online forums for concerns about a possible defective design gaps were found between the screen and the body of the phone. Now, the company has finally addressed these concerns.

This is a very strange statement, since many users in the same forum thread report gaps in different places and in different sizes. Not every phone has a noticeable gap. Us Pixel Rating 5 device was one such example.
However, the update states that the vacuum has no effect on water resistance and dust or the functionality of the phone. This means that users can still trust the IP68 rating of the phone.
