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

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.

Galaxy Note8 passes JerryRigEverything's torture test with flying colors

Galaxy Note8 passes JerryRigEverything's torture test with flying colors

After much leaking, the Galaxy Note8 finally made its official debut about two weeks ago. As we expected, it's a fantastic phone, with virtually no downsides aside from its price. But how does it hold up against JerryRigEverything's durability tests? Just like its little brother, the Galaxy S8, the Note8 holds up remarkably well against all this torture.

The Moto Z2 Force performs well in JerryRigEverything's durability test

The Moto Z2 Force performs well in JerryRigEverything's durability test

Lenovo's latest Moto flagship has been through the mill a bit recently. The problems with the Z2 Force's shatterproof but easily scratchable plastic-covered screen have been well documented, and the smaller battery is one of a number of other disappointments when compared to its predecessor. Its price was seemingly slashed by $80 before it was even released (although Moto denies this), and David has even concluded that the Z line and its mods add up to little more than a thinly veiled money grabbing exercise. Moto could use some good news then, and luckily YouTube phone torturer Zack Nelson (JerryRigEverything) was left impressed with the Z2 Force.

Xperia XZ Premium proves to be the most durable Sony phone yet in JerryRigEverything test

Xperia XZ Premium proves to be the most durable Sony phone yet in JerryRigEverything test

Sony has maintained the same basic design language for years, but a number of its phones have barely squeaked by in the JerryRigEverything durability testing. What about the new Xperia XZ Premium? It has premium right in the name, and Sony is asking for a very premium $800 for it. This phone fairs quite well overall.

The OnePlus 5 passes JerryRigEverything's tests with flying colors

The OnePlus 5 passes JerryRigEverything's tests with flying colors

There is at least one certainty all consumers can have when it comes to phones these days. And that is: a new flagship launch means JerryRigEverything has a new video posted. This time his Mohs hardness points are set squarely on the display of the OnePlus 5. And when it comes to durability, the OnePlus 5 handles itself well.

[Update: New model does better] The BlackBerry KEYone meets JerryRigEverything—it doesn't go well

[Update: New model does better] The BlackBerry KEYone meets JerryRigEverything—it doesn't go well

It's becoming something of a tradition for a new phone to be subjected to durability tests on the JerryRigEverything YouTube channel. We've seen phones like the Galaxy S8 and Pixel come through the testing okay, but phones like the Nexus 6P and HTC U Ultra haven't fared so well. Today, it's the BlackBerry KEYone going under the knife/lighter/hands. Despite a strong start, the KEYone doesn't last.

The Nokia 6 passes JerryRigEverything's durability tests with mostly flying colors

The Nokia 6 is not really a new phone, but its international availability is fairly recent. To celebrate, JerryRigEverything puts the phone to his durability tests to see if it lives up to its namesake's reputation for resilience to a nuclear apocalypse. Hint: It does.

The Honor 6X fails catastrophically in JerryRigEverything's durability testing

The Honor 6X fails catastrophically in JerryRigEverything's durability testing

When companies send us review units, they usually expect that our testing will not include intentionally breaking them. That's why JerryRigEverything has a niche on YouTube. He buys and destroys phones to see how durable (or not) they are. His latest victim is the Honor 6X, and it doesn't go well for that phone. At all.

Brutal YouTube tester JerryRigEverything finds a lot of plastic in Sony's 'premium' Xperia XZ

Brutal YouTube tester JerryRigEverything finds a lot of plastic in Sony's 'premium' Xperia XZ

If you haven't at least glanced at YouTube gadget aficionado JerryRigEverything (whose real name is Zack), you should close this tab and go do that. He puts new phones through excruciating damage tests for "entertainment purposes only" - it's the kind of thing that we're not really supposed to do in our standard reviews (unless the phone dares us to kill it). In a breakdown of the Xperia XZ, Sony's current premium flagship which retails for $700, Zack found a surprising amount of materials that were less than premium.
