The Huawei P20 Pro was announced back in February during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, and now the phone got a proper durability test, courtesy of JerryRigEverything. The durability test was published on Jerry’s official YouTube page, and the phone is put through the paces, as every other phone that was tested before it. For those of you who do not know, the Huawei P20 Pro is made out of metal and glass, it has one of the best camera setups out there, and it’s the company’s flagship handset.
The first test that the Huawei P20 Pro was submitted, is a display scratch test. The phone’s display was scratched with a level 6 pick, as many other flagships out there, while deeper scratches occurred using a level 7 pick. The phone’s earpiece is made out of metal, while its front-facing camera and sensors are covered using the same glass that protects the display. The phone’s fingerprint scanner is also well-protected, while the phone’s physical keys on the sides are made from metal, as is the phone’s frame. The phone’s SIM tray is also made out of metal, in case you were wondering. The phone’s branding on the back, including Leica’s branding, are under the glass, while the phone’s cameras on the back are also well protected, by glass. The device’s display lasted for about 20 seconds in the burn test, after which a white spot appeared on it, and the display never recovered.
The phone did not fare that well in the bend test, though, as the glass on the display cracked when Jerry applied pressure on the back of the phone. The same did not happen when he applied pressure on the front of the phone, so it is quite possible that the pick marks on the front glass have caused the aforementioned cracks. It is unknown whether the Huawei P20 Pro has a Gorilla Glass protection on top of its display, as Huawei did not mention it, but in any case, the phone continued functioning just fine, despite the fact its front glass cracked.
