Watch the Galaxy S9 duo get scratched, burnt and bent

Ivan, 12 March 2018

If you've been waiting for the Samsung Galaxy S9 (and S9+) to pass JerryRigEverything's Durability test, it's time to grab the popcorn.

And if you were fearing the worst you can breathe a sigh of relief. The duo of Galaxies will withstand any regular-day beating you might throw at it.

As per usual, JerryRigEverything tested the phone's glass' scratch resistance - normal - its burn resistance - better than most OLEDs as the screen pixels recovered - and its bend resistance - the phones didn't bend.

The stronger aluminum used in the Galaxy S9 and S9+ seemingly doesn't dramatically change the phone's rigidity. It didn't bend but neither did its predecessor.

We'll have to wait for a drop test to see if the stronger glass makes a noticeable difference.

samsung may be the top phonemaker but the king of durability will always be nokia

Actually the toughest yet for jerry's fingers was HTC10

I wasn't talking about the toughest phone, I was questioning whether this was the toughest bend test conducted by JRE yet.
