Samsung Galaxy S6 put through scratch, fire, and bend test – proves smartphone is as tough as nails

YouTube channel JerryRigEverything has sacrificed his own Samsung Galaxy S6 to show us if the smartphone can withstand scratch, fire, and bend tests. The good news is, if you were planning to get your hands on the smartphone, the S6 survived the tests.


JerryRigEverything first put the Galaxy S6 through a scratch test, using keys, a screwdriver, and a knife. The screen, which is protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass 4, survived the series of scratch tests unscathed.

The YouTube channel then put the smartphone through a fire test, lighting the S6 up with a lighter both on the screen and on the aluminium frame. The fire didn’t do anything to both the frame and screen.

The last test JerryRigEverything put the S6 through was a bend test. His test reveals that it will take a pretty strong person to bend the smartphone, as it took him multiple tries to bend the S6. The tester had to bend and twist to bend the smartphone. Despite this, it still worked.
