Huawei Mate 10 Pro undergoes scratch, burn, and bend testing

For his first smartphone durability test of 2018, Zack from YouTube channel JerryRigEverything chose the Huawei Mate 10 Pro as the subject. Now that the handset is up for pre-order in the US, more people may like to know how well it fares in this pretty standard challenge.

It turns out that it doesn’t disappoint. Its screen scratches exactly when you’d expect, and manages to withstand an open flame for a whopping 40 seconds without any damage, matching Samsung’s Galaxy S8 in this regard. Unfortunately though, because the Mate 10 Pro uses an OLED touchscreen, its pixels don’t recover once you’ve stopped applying the flame, unlike some LCDs.
