JerryRigEverything is a YouTube channel known for testing smartphones under very tough conditions. This time he has the Huawei Mate 20 Pro in hand. 

Huawei Mate 20 Pro torture test

This is beyond dispute that Huawei Mate 20 Pro is an excellent smartphone with many features. You get three cameras at the back, advanced face recognition, a fingerprint scanner under the screen, an AMOLED screen, a strong battery life and you can even charge other devices wirelessly with this device. 

However, Jerry is not interested very much in the features. He tests smartphones for durability. He always does this in the same way, with varying results. For example, the iPhone X, Huawei Mate 10 Pro, the OnePlus 6, and Samsung Galaxy S9 have already passed. In previous videos, he tested other phones for scratch resistance, both at the front and rear. The Mate 20 Pro passes the scratch test by flying colors. The back also makes a funny sound when you rub it over, seems like a sort of DJ table! Zack thinks that is funny. 

Zack shows that the front is as scratch-resistant as other smartphones, and the sides are really made of metal. The camera is also resistant to scratches. Everything goes well until he arrives at the bent test. Zack tried to bend the phone as hard as possible with his hands. Many smartphones pass this test, but unfortunately the Mate 20 Pro has partially failed this test, as you can see around 3.45 minutes of the video. The front glass of the Mate 20 Pro broke completely in the first bend attempt. When he tried to bend from the other side the phone turned out sturdy enough to withstand the brute force and does not bend or break in half.

The curved screen edges are the possible culprits behind the failing of the bend test. Due to the scratch test, the curved screen of the Mate 20 Pro has so weakened that the screen broke but Samsung smartphones with a similar curved display have survived the bend test with flying colors in the past. The Mate 10 Pro of last year also passed the bend test it had a flat display. In terms of strength Huawei has not yet reached the level of Samsung.

Fortunately, the phone still functions, except for the under-the-display fingerprint scanner. The phone did not completely fail the test like the OPPO Find X, Nextbit Robin, Nexus 6P, HTC One M9 and HTC U11 that broke completely.
