The Galaxy Note20 series launches in just a few days, but we already have all the details about the new phones from Samsung. The Note20 Ultra model also reached the Go4it office, but because we can’t manually check the resistance of the phone, we are glad that there are already specialized sources of information in this field. The JerryRigEverything channel, known for destroying the latest smartphones for scientific purposes, has also tested the Galaxy Note20 Ultra, and the results are gratifying.
Galaxy Note20 Ultra seems to be very durable
Of course, when a phone starts at a price of 1,300 euros, you expect it to be among the most durable on the market. Thus, it is not surprising that the phone has withstood most extreme tests. As expected, the phone does not bend, break or crack when you apply pressure to it. It is made of all-around metal, along with high-strength glass panels: the new Gorilla Glass Victus.
Corning says this new glass making technology is twice as resistant to falls and scratches as regular glass. Thus, it could withstand mechanical shocks from a height of two meters and the usual scratches, which could be caused in pockets or a bag. However, the material is still glass and is scratched as easily as any other ordinary glass on mobile phones when intentionally scratched.
A surprising thing about this model is that the screen did not pass the burn test, which has no practical applicability. However, it reveals that Samsung uses an OLED panel made of other materials than those so far. It may be related to the fact that this model benefits from LTPO technology, which can dynamically adjust the screen refresh rate.
