Here we have the new iPhone 8 durability test video. Here you will watch how the iPhone 8 survived scratch, burn and other serious torture so if you have weak heart, don’t watch. This is the video for strong minded.
The iPhone 8 was unveiled to the world last week and now undergoes series of test to ensure it durability. #JerryRigEverything is known for tormenting latest smartphones to know how strong they are and this time around iPhone 8 is not an exemption.
The torment session is not for the faint hearted, if you can’t stand smartphones been tortured like this please don’t watch the video below; however, iPhone 8 came out strong after undergoing, burn test, bend test and scratch test.
In a bend test, the iPhone 8 held up well, faring better than the iPhone 7 last year. There was no separation between the body and the glass and no real distortion to the frame of the device.
You can watch the bend, scratch and burn test above.
Also, earlier today, popular Youtuber #Marques Brownlee did an iPhone 8 unboxing which I think is worth watching after all the hype Apple displayed last week.
7 THINGS TO NOTE ABOUT IPHONE 8 DURABILITY TEST
- The glass front and back are about as scratch-resistant as the front glass on the iPhone 7 so Apple’s “most durable glass ever on a smartphone” claim will likely be regarding the impact resistance rather than scratch-resistance.
- The sapphire lens cover for the rear camera is not 100% pure sapphire and is about as scratch resistant as the glass used elsewhere on the phone, which is to say it’s good but not as good as pure sapphire would be.
- The phone uses improved ingress protection around the sides that does not pop when the phone bends, an issue that was present on the previous model.
- The phone itself does not bend much at all, a far cry from when this design was first introduced with the original iPhone 6 that bent like a bar of chocolate on a hot day.
- Everything you touch is either glass or metal, including the buttons on the side.
- While not mentioned in this video, the glass back has been reported to be a lot grippier than the smooth metal surface of previous iPhones, which means it is lot less likely to slip out of your hands in the first place so you don’t end up testing Apple’s durability claims first hand.
- The pixels recover from flame, which should be good news if you frequently find yourself using your phone while being engulfed in fire. (Why is this a test, again?)
Overall, the iPhone 8 does well in durability test. Real world scenarios will likely be less harsh so if a phone can survive this it will likely survive in the real world. But if you are paranoid Apple will be happy to charge you $39-$49 more for a case.
Only that we don’t know when the iPhone 8 will get to this part of the country.
