As you may know, Asus is a famous brand for gaming peripherals and PC hardware. The Republic of Gamers (ROG) division focuses on producing gaming devices, which has also begun launching smartphones recently. The newly-launched phone Asus ROG Phone 2 is among the best gaming phones and the most feature-rich and powerful phones this year on the market.
Recently, Zack, a famous Youtuber with the JerryRigEverything channel did a torture durability test for this phone. Now let’s have a look at the video below to see if the phone can pass this test.
The smartphone passed the scratch test with regular results. Accordingly, the phone's Gorilla Glass 6 protective layer in the front and rear panel can withstand scratches up to five on the Mohs scale. So anything above six on the Mohs scale could scratch the handset's display and back. Especially, despite the scratches at level 7, the under-display fingerprint scanner of the device still can work well.
The phone’s sides are actually metal and importantly, they managed to pass Zack’s bending test with no damage.
Bending and Burning Test
In the bending test, the handset did not have permanent damage or any crack, but a bit of flex. The result was definitely contributed by the phone’s metal sides. And only because the USB Type-C ports on the side weaken the metal frame a bit, there was the aforementioned flex.
And regarding the burning test, Zack directly put a flame on the phone’s 6.6-inch AMOLED display for around 30 secs. After that, the pixels turned white, but the display then could return to the normal status quickly.
Generally, the Asus ROG Phone 2 went through Zack’s durability test with impressive results. This gaming-centric smartphone was as strong as it looked, and those buying the phone will be happy to know that their phones be able to take abuse with no damage.
