JerryRigEverything’s Pixel 3 XL test reveals back glass durability

Friday, October 19th, 2018

The Pixel 3 XL is landing on doorsteps as we speak, but how careful do you need to be with your shiny new smartphone? YouTube channel JerryRigEverything is here to absolutely wreck another phone in order to assess its durability. The Pixel comes out of it alright—it won't bend, but you might pick up some scratches.

The bend test is usually the main event in JerryRigEverything videos, but not here. The Pixel 3 XL is a glass sandwich with aluminum sides, so it doesn't even flex very might; no concerns there.

Pocophone F1 durability test reveals lots of plastic but solid construction

Friday, September 14th, 2018

When you buy a phone, you don't want it to fall apart even if it's a "budget" device. The Pocophone F1 costs a mere $300-ish and comes with top-of-the-line internals. Did Xiaomi cut some corners in the build to keep the price low? As usual, YouTube channel JerryRigEverything has sacrificed a phone to find out.

Despite the low price, the Pocophone has a Gorilla Glass screen. So, it won't scratch from normal use.

OnePlus 6 emerges from JerryRigEverything’s hands mostly unscathed

Thursday, May 17th, 2018

The OnePlus 6 was finally unveiled about 12 hours ago after quite a bit of shameless self-leaking, and it seems like a pretty solid phone. But how will its glass sandwich design hold up in daily use? JerryRigEverything got his hands on one to find out, and the phone did relatively well.

Zack (not Jerry) starts off with the typical Mohs' pick tests after peeling off the preinstalled screen protector.

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

Sunday, March 11th, 2018

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

Thursday, September 7th, 2017

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.

After unboxing the device, Zack (not Jerry) gets right into the testing.

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

Friday, August 11th, 2017

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.

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

Monday, July 10th, 2017

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.

Past Sony phones have exhibited a number of issues in JerryRigEverything videos. For one, the camera lenses were easily scratchable plastic.

The OnePlus 5 passes JerryRigEverything’s tests with flying colors

Tuesday, June 20th, 2017

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. 

Now, it's true, my title may have given away the results of JerryRigEverything's tests.

The BlackBerry KEYone meets JerryRigEverything—it doesn’t go well

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

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.

You should be familiar with the various stages of JerryRigEverything's tests by now.
