Pixel 7 owners find broken cameras randomly.

Andrew Heinzman/Review Geek

Google’s Pixel 7 line of smartphones is only a few months old, but we’ve already seen countless little issues crop up. At first, it was power consumption issues and screen scrolling lag, but now we’re seeing multiple reports of the rear camera glass breaking randomly.

When the Pixel 7 first came out, we heard some complaints from owners that the rear glass cracked or broke without dropping the phone. And unfortunately, that doesn’t appear to be an isolated incident. Looking at the Google support forum for the Pixel, several users are saying the same thing.

Owners say the Pixel 7’s rear camera glass broke for no reason. One user even mentions having it in a case, in a padded front jacket pocket, and noticed the broken glass when he took it out to take a photo. It is trending topic in the forum.

This week, two more reports surfaced over the holiday weekend on Twitter. It’s the same story, but we’re still not sure what’s going on here, but one owner suggested cold weather is to blame. Those could be isolated incidents, and it’s not widespread, but we’re starting to see a pattern.

While we praised the Pixel 7 in our review and haven’t addressed this issue, our own Josh Hendrickson said that it feels somewhat flimsy and already has several scratches.

It’s worth mentioning that most of the photos we’ve seen so far are of the regular Pixel 7, but there are some similar reports for the larger Pixel 7 Pro. Either way, it’s too early to tell if this is a manufacturing defect or some kind of pressure point, but we’ll keep an eye out for more details. If your camera glass breaks, please contact Google for help.
