There's a new smartphone hitting the market, and that means YouTube channel JerryRigEverything is going to get a unit to mess up. The Huawei P20 Pro isn't available officially in the US, but you're looking at the equivalent of at least $1,000 to get your hands on one. Is it going to break after you spend all that dough? Well, that's a big maybe. Read More
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.

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. Read More
The Razer Phone was designed by the same folks who handled the Nextbit Robin, which snapped like a twig in JerryRigEverything's hands. Fortunately, this metal-clad phone fares a bit better, though it's by no means a durability champ like some other phones. But hey, at least it doesn't completely bend in half, right? Read More
Google's Pixel 2 and 2 XL have a lot in common, but they aren't just larger and smaller versions of the same hardware like last year. Thus, fans of JerryRigEverything have been calling for a followup test after the Pixel 2 narrowly averted complete failure in the recent stress test. Well, here it is: the Pixel 2 XL has met the blade, the flame, and the bend. It went better this time. Read More
The days of flimsy plastic phones are (mostly) behind us, but that doesn't mean all phones are as durable as we might like. That's why the JerryRigEverything YouTube channel takes the time to burn, scratch, and bend new phones. This time, it's the OnePlus 5T's turn, and it proves to be pretty durable. Read More
Zack from JerryRigEverything has got his hands on the new Pixel 2, the small one, and you know what that means, right? The man is out to torture those poor little phones - What did they ever do to him? - and the Pixel 2 is no exception. So how does it fare? Not so well actually.
Starting with the display scratch test, the Gorilla Glass 5 shows shallow marks at level 6 and properly scratches at level 7 - similar to most other smartphones but not as good as those with a sapphire screen. The front camera and rear camera also have the same protection, so they won't scratch very easily. Read More
The LG V30 was announced way back at IFA almost two months ago, but it's only just started shipping to consumers. This phone is almost unbelievably light but that doesn't mean it's not sturdy. The latest LG phone has gone through usual JerryRigEverything durability tests and it managed to remain in one piece. Read More
The Nokia 8 might not be officially sold here in the US, but in other parts of the world, it'll get into a lot of hands. Because of this, YouTuber/phone destroyer JerryRigEverything decided to buy a brand new unit for the sole purpose of scratching, burning, and bending it. Oh, and also for carving the Twitter logo into the back. Read More
JerryRigEverything does teardowns and torture tests pretty often, but a drop test from the channel is rare to see. The torture tests that Zack does compromise the devices' strength, and drop tests are pretty expensive in the first place. But for the titanium- and ceramic-constructed Essential Phone, an exception was made, giving us the video you see here. Read More
