Samsung launched its much awaited smartphone the Galaxy S8 last month which easily went on to become the most innovative device available.

While the flagship smartphone features some of the latest technology available to date, it also checks all the boxes when it comes to durability and build quality.

YouTuber JerryRigEverything, who’s known for putting high-end smartphones through extensive torture tests, just uploaded his latest video featuring the Galaxy S8. As usual, the phone was put through different durability tests that included a scratch, burn and bend test.

The S8 performed exceptionally well in all three test which is surprising since the bezel less design of the smartphone should in theory make it less durable than others.

Subjecting the S8 to the scratch test showed the smartphone has gorilla glass covering both the front and back making it immune to scratches and scuffs caused by everyday items.

The burn test also led to similar results as the screen lasted for a longer duration than other smartphones before the pixels turned black.

The most surprising result came in the bend test where the flagship device performed exceptionally well. The smartphone’s design allows it to bare much force without breaking the front or back glass panels. The S8 hardly flexes at all maintaining its water tight seals which means the device should remain water and dust resistant even under heavy pressure.

Samsung’s Galaxy S8 then should be the best bet for those users who also prioritise durability along with high end specs in a smartphone.
