Watch the Asus ROG Phone II torture test
Zack is right back at it again with another durability video and this time the Asus ROG Phone II is under the sportlight. An expensive and pretty phone that we all want to see being tortured. Or not?
The handset goes through the usual scratch tests and bend tests. As expected, the Gorilla Glass 6 front and back panel withstand scratches up to 5 on Mohs scale. Anything above 6 will scratch your screen and back. The side frame is indeed metal and more importantly, it passed the bending test but not without damage.
Despite being so thick and solid, the ROG Phone II did visibly bend probably because of the side USB-C connector, which weakens the frame by a little.
