Samsung’s latest Galaxy phones, the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus are already dust and water resistant up to a degree. But that doesn’t stop YouTubers from torturing the phone with knife tests, drop tests and even from exposing the phone to fire. And, it looks like Samsung has done a fairly good job of making the phone stronger.
Stress test from a popular YouTuber JerryRigEverything shows that the phone is actually tougher than Galaxy S8 and while there were some scratches on the phone’s outer shell, the camera was quite tough showing no scratches at all.
Apart from that. phone’s super AMOLED screen responded very well to fire. Returning to its original state ones the heat was taken away and while there were some marks on the screen, it fared better than many other flagships.
Having a stronger phone for Samsung is definitely a win, considering last year’s Pixel 2 did poorly in the same stress tests.
