The sub-screen camera of the ZTE Axon 20 5G becomes visible when heated

ZTE Axon 20

A couple of months ago, the Chinese tech giant ZTE has unveiled the world’s first smartphone with an under-screen camera dubbed the Axon 20 5G. The well-known smartphone durability tester Zack Nelson has published a video on his JerryRigEverything channel in which he tested the smartphone’s durability.

The blogger, who already has 6.5 million subscribers, conducted familiar tests for scratch resistance, screen resistance to fire and bending. The hardness of the ZTE Axon 20 5G protective glass corresponds to 6 points on the Mohs scale, like most other smartphones on the market.

The blade was able to break off several pieces of the frame, which is made of plastic, the back panel is covered with glass, which is scratched with the same force as the front part. The scratch test was also carried out on the optical fingerprint scanner located under the display. But even after serious scratches, the smartphone could still be easily unlocked.

The test confirmed that the area of ​​the screen above the front camera quickly becomes visible when heated, so it is not recommended to leave the smartphone screen up in the sun.

During the last test, the smartphone bent noticeably, but the screen and body did not crack.

Obviously, the photos of the front camera of the ZTE Axon 20 are much worse in quality. The detail and clarity of the images are not so good. For selfie lovers, the ZTE Axon 20 is definitely not suitable. In terms of image quality, the ZTE Axon 20 resembles smartphones that came out many years ago.

    So one should take comfort in that even after scratching it deep, the lock screen worked-so one can mess around with their phones and still expect them to work lol….like anyone would. False sense of security in knowing your phone can withstand x N or lb of force or bending moment applied- rig everything to get income is more like it. touting Tesla as having self-driving capabilities (NO it does not-no not adaptive cruise control or lane control-a lowly Corolla has those; when one uses self-driving you have to be 100% self-driving otherwise don't call it that as consumers react to that as an all or nothing)-and then ended video conveniently with a referral…of course, what it is all about.
