We know that some of the tech reviewers love the resistance tests. Today, the Huawei P30 Pro is no exemption. Thanks to Zack, the owner of the JerryRigEverything channel, the video shows how the phone survived the durability test.
You may already know this American YouTuber, but for those who do not, he dedicates himself (among other things) to test the physical resistance of some smartphones. If the phone passes the test, then proceed to dismantle it in another video.
The Huawei P30 Pro hopes to amend its predecessor. Last year, the Huawei P20 Pro did not pass all the tests, as it was tested too and saw its screen break when it was folded. The tests carried out by Zack in his videos are always the same. First the screen, the back and cameras. Then the screen frames and buttons with his cutter. Subsequently, the litmus test and finally, the feared bend-test.
On the Huawei P30 Pro, it was not going to be different and it starts trying to scratch the screen. As usual in most phones today, its screen is made of glass, so it is slightly scratched with a level 6 of hardness and with deeper stripes in level 7. The same goes for the back. The camera is also protected by glass, so it should not be scratched easily. In the frames and buttons of the phone, we find a metal as a construction material, so it will be easier to scratch, but this adds rigidity to the overall structure of the device.
Turning to the fire test, the screen of the Huawei P30 Pro resisted 22 seconds without showing signs of burn in the panel. Being an AMOLED screen, the burn spot is white and it doesn’t recover. Finally, the bend-test, just where the Huawei P20 Pro failed and we do not see it bend a bit and much less break. Apparently, this is due to the curvature of both the screen and the glass, which gives more rigidity to this type of display. Undoubtedly, the Huawei P30 Pro has passed this test.
