Foldable smartphones are generally considered more fragile than all-in-ones, but recent tests by blogger Zack Nelson, better known as JerryRigEverything, prove otherwise. For example, gaming smartphones ASUS ROG Phone 5 and Lenovo Legion 2 Pro failed miserably in traditional durability tests, and the foldable Huawei Mate X2 proved to be a pretty tough nut to crack.
We will remind, Huawei Mate X2 received two screens. The outer is covered with glass, therefore, it is scratched by objects with a hardness of 6 on the Mohs scale. But the inner screen has a plastic coating, and traces are visible on it at level 2, and the indentations at level 3. That is, you can even scratch it with a fingernail.
An open flame also leaves traces on the screens that do not recover over time.
But the most interesting was the bending test, because one of the most important qualities of a folding smartphone is its durability. And the Huawei Mate X2 turned out to be just that: its body does not bend, and the hinge withstood the use of force and did not bend in the opposite direction.
