The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is noticed to gain scratches at durability levels between six and seven
YouTube channel JerryRigEverything has tested Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra in a durability video that highlights its glass sandwich design and screen resistance. The South Korean company’s latest flagship phone carries 6 glass panels of Corning Gorilla Glass on both front and rear sides. Also, there is a metal frame, which seems to get some signs of damage quickly. Specifically, Samsung doesn’t advertise any ruggedness of Galaxy S20 Ultra. Therefore, it is good to expect some delicacy on the building line.
The JerryRigEverything channel’s nearly eight-and a half minute video starts with the famed scratch test in which the narrator Zack Nelson, tested the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra’s display safety. The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra is noticed to gain scratches at durability levels between six and seven of Mohs. This is like what have seen on the Pixel 4 XL, whereas with the Galaxy Z Flip foldable, which started showing marks on Mohs Level 2.
Zack Nelson said in the video that “The phone will be able to handle everyday objects and fingernails without getting scratched or dented up,”
The presenter in the video moved to the front camera after scratch checking the panel, which also has the Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection in it. He also tried to examine the phone’s metal frame that got some scratches. Although the casing, Nelson also noticed that the Galaxy S20 Ultra’s power and volume buttons could be easily removed by placing some pressure outwards.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra screen has been able to resist a lighter’s heat in the durability test. Likewise, the rear quad camera setup was found to be flawlessly resistant to scratches. Nelson has also tried to put the scratches on the area covering the Galaxy S20 Ultra’s in-display fingerprint sensor but has failed to impact his results. Although it bent slightly, the flagship model also passed the bend test.
“The S20 Ultra survives my durability test… no cracks, kinks, or permanent damage anywhere,” admitted the narrator in the longevity video featuring some of the most stringent tests you might want on your phone.
Nelson tested Ultra 5G edition of the Galaxy S20 model in his video. However, it’s fair to say that on its 4G counterpart, Samsung has not made any design-level improvements that are available in markets.
