Huawei P30 Pro survives a torture test with a few scratches

Ro, 19 April 2019

We got another durability test video from JerryRigEverything and this time the Huawei P30 Pro is the unfortunate victim. The handset went through the usual scratch, burn and bend tests and survived it all even if it got a scar or two.

The back and side panels are indeed made of glass as the scratch test confirmed but Huawei made some important structural changes to this year's design. Last year's P20 Pro didn't survive the bend test while the P30 Pro handled the pressure with ease.

Perhaps the curved glass on the back and front add more stability and rigidity to the frame and doesn't let the phone bend as easily. However, the curved glass does make the phone more prone to damage when dropped, for example.
