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.

The HTC U11 fails JerryRigEverything durability testing

HTC is doing some weird things with its latest generation of phones. They're shiny, rounded, and there's no headphone jack. So, how's HTC's new design when it comes to durability? JerryRigEverything on YouTube has put the U11 through its paces, and it didn't go well. This phone did not survive the tests, so it goes on the shelf of shame. I'm not sure if that's a real shelf, but the point is the phone is broken.

JerryRigEverything proclaims Xiaomi Mi6 a durability champ, with massive improvements over the Mi5

A new phone launch and we get a new JerryRigEverything video. You can pretty much guarantee a new flagship will merit his attentions — as well as his smooth and impassioned desire for wanton destruction — and Xiaomi's latest Mi6 is no different. After submitting the phone to his will, it came out in one piece, unlike last year's Mi5.

JerryRigEverything outs Zagg's $50 'Sapphire Defense' screen protector as plastic garbage

Everyone was all hyped up about sapphire crystal displays a few years ago, then manufacturers realized what a complete pain in the butt it was to manufacture synthetic sapphire at an industrial scale. There have been a few phones and watches with this super hard material covering the screen, but Zagg offers a "Sapphire Defense" screen protector, too. That makes it sound like a sapphire glass screen protector, and the high price backs that assumption up. However, JerryRigEverything just posted a video revealing it to be nothing more than treated plastic.

JerryRigEverything takes on the (apparently unbendable) Galaxy S8

Can you hear that? It's the screaming of the phones as JerryRigEverything posts yet another video of smartphone torment. This time it's the Galaxy S8 on his desk getting scratched, burned, and bent. Samsung's latest flagship comes through it quite well, though.

The LG G6 gets tortured by JerryRigEverything, emerges mostly unscathed

LG isn't really well known for building strong, reliable smartphones. Last year's G5 was a build quality nightmare, and even its newer phones are still bootlooping (on a completely unrelated note, check out our Nexus 5X long-term review). With the G6, though, LG incorporated a beefy metal frame, as well as some other little tweaks that make this 2017 flagship one of the more durable phones that JerryRigEverything has tested.

HTC's U Ultra doesn't fare well against JerryRigEverything's wrath, proves that it's not great at anything

Despite its great looks, the HTC U Ultra wasn't very well received by the press. In his review of the U Ultra, David absolutely ripped the phone apart, saying that it's unclear why the phone exists at all, and that HTC should go back to the drawing board. One of David's complaints about the phone was how easily the display scratched. In his latest video, JerryRigEverything proves that there's a lot more wrong with the phone's durability than that.

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.

JerryRigEverything puts the Huawei Mate 9 through its paces, offers a thumbs up

JerryRigEverything is back with another one of his signature snuff films phone abuse videos. This time he's taking his graded MOH picks to the Mate 9, Huawei's latest premium offering. The big, bold device has been generally well-received thanks to typically solid hardware and much-improved software; shipping with Nougat was a nice touch. The JerryRigEverything YouTube channel doesn't really care about that - it's all about how much physical abuse the phone can take.

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.
