Galaxy S9 comes out impressively well after going through JerryRigEverything's durability test

Zack from JerryRigEverything has become famous for his (somewhat extreme) durability tests, and now he's finally gotten his hands on a new Galaxy S9 to put through its paces.

Starting off with the scratch test, the S9's screen only begins scratching with a level 6 pick, and displays deeper groves at level 7. This is absolutely on par with essentially every other smartphone around (with the exception of sapphire screens that only begin to scratch at a level 8), and means the Galaxy S9's display should hold up fine against razor blades, coins, and keys.

Nokia launches four smartphones at MWC: the 1, 6 (2018), 7 Plus, and 8 Sirocco

HMD Global had a good first year making Nokia-branded phones. In 2017, the Finnish company sold 70 million devices across its portfolio of six different Android smartphones and other low-cost feature phones such as the throwback Nokia 3310. HMD is confident of an even better 2018, starting with the launch of four new (well, mostly new) Android phones at MWC in Barcelona.

Before we even get to the new devices, perhaps the headline announcement is that starting with these phones all Nokia releases will be part of the Android One program (with the exception of its first Android Go phone).

The Cat S61 packs an improved FLIR thermal camera and rugged design

The Cat-branded S60 was a very interesting phone, even if it wasn't the best phone for most people. This phone was the first and only Android device to have an integrated FLIR thermal camera, but it won't be the only one for long. Now, Cat is following it up with the Cat S61. It has a lot in common with the S60 (as the name implies), but all the specs have gotten a boost—even the thermal camera.

Sony Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra feature Snapdragon 630, rear fingerprint sensors, Android 8.0 Oreo, and more; L2 also announced

Sony seems serious about improving its smartphone game. The Xperia XA1 and XA1 Ultra, despite having interesting camera setups and not-terrible pricing, were let down by the lacks of a Snapdragon processor and a fingerprint sensor. The XA2 and XA2 Ultra, which were leaked a few days ago, fix that with a Snapdragon 630 and a rear-mounted scanner. Also announced was the budget-oriented Xperia L2, which sports a rear fingerprint sensor as well.

Nokia 2's metal design fares well in JerryRigEverything's durability tests

Watching Zack from JerryRigEverything break every new (major) phone that comes out has become something of a tradition. This time around, Zach dug into the Nokia 2, the new low-end Nokia smartphone from HMD Global. Being just $100 in the United States, you would expect the phone to be mostly plastic and easily broken, but that wasn't the case.
